Calgary Maternity Photography By Amanda Dams Blue Backdrop

We Are Calgary’s #1 Maternity Photography Studio

A luxury maternity photography experience like no other

Pregnancy is a time of great change. Maternity photography is a fantastic way to capture your body’s changes as you await the arrival of the new addition to your family.

It can also be a time of uncertainty. Even if you aren’t overjoyed with the changes in your body right now, these images will become a treasured part of this very special time in your life in years to come.

My maternity photo session in Calgary is fun and relaxed. I will do my very best to choose poses and lighting that are flattering to your changing body.

All of my maternity photos are digitally refined to enhance your natural beauty. My goal is to make you feel and look as radiant and beautiful as possible!


Gowns & fabrics

We offer a complete set of maternity gowns and fabrics to choose from. You don’t have to worry about a thing.


Hair & Makeup Artistry

Professional hair & makeup are included in all our Calgary maternity sessions. You deserve a relaxing pampering day!


When to book a maternity photography session in Calgary?




We want your belly to be beautiful and round but it would be best to get the shots before you are too uncomfortable.



You can book as early as 12 weeks of pregnancy to guarantee a spot in our busy calendar. Maternity sessions can be done in our studio located in Beltline or any outdoor location around Calgary all year long.

Studio VS Outdoor Maternity Session

Hair & Makeup artistry is included either way

Before your maternity photography session, we will chat and discuss your goals and preferences for your photoshoot, as well as decide if you prefer a studio photography session or an outdoor photography session around the city of Calgary. I have maternity gowns and accessories for you to try and select your favourites. If you are comfortable with nude/skin maternity shots and/or fabric shots, I have plenty of lovely fabric and wardrobes in the studio. I will respect your style and create images that you will LOVE.

If your partner and/or other children will be participating in the maternity session, they should wear solid clothing that coordinates with yours and I will give you some advice once we decide on your wardrobe during the pre-consultation meeting.

Most studio maternity photography sessions take about one to two hours. Some of that time will involve setting up the shots and lighting, changing clothes and discussing poses and ideas. Outdoor maternity photography sessions are about one hour long and are usually done at a park or a lake in Calgary. Maternity sessions are always laid back and fun. I will take my time to make sure we capture some amazing shots of you and your growing belly.

We had a very good experience choosing Amanda to do our maternity and newborn photoshoots. She is an incredible professional and will offer you the best service for sure.

5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We have booked a few sessions with Amanda (maternity, newborn, and cake smash) and we always enjoyed visiting her lovely studio.

Amanda is warm and friendly which made us feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. She is also professional in which she provides all the details we needed to know before the photo sessions as well as her amazing work in a timely manner.


5.0 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We did our maternity and newborn session with Amanda and she was simply amazing.

Our maternity location was selected by her and the pictures came out so beautifully.

I will go back to her for my toddler session or cake smash and would definitely recommend her to someone who is looking for perfection.

How do I book my maternity session?

Call us at (587) 327-9995 or email us and we will help you with the next steps to complete your booking. An online agreement and session fee are required to confirm the booking.

Will I receive all the images from my photo session?

During the View&Order appointment, you will decide how many images you would like to purchase. Our minimum collection includes 10 images.

How much editing do you do?

All my images get colour corrections, some light touch-ups if needed and a light skin smoothing layer. My goal is to always make the image look as close as possible to how the scene looked to our eyes. If more specific retouching is needed, it is available for an additional fee. Amanda Dams Photography does not sell RAW or unedited images.

How long does it take until I can view my images?

We’ll book a date and time for your View&Order appointment within 1 or 2 weeks after the session. All print orders and selections will occur at this appointment. Please allow up to 4 weeks for the editing process.

Where will my session take place?

All in-studio maternity photography sessions take place at my Beltline photography studio at

822 11 Ave SW #203
Calgary AB
T2R 0E5

*Free parking available while you’re at the photography session

For outdoor maternity photography sessions, we will chat before your session to decide the best place/spot for your photos.

When should I book my maternity photography session?

It is very important to schedule your photo session as soon as possible! The reason why is to guarantee your spot at the prime time for the session, between 30-34 weeks of pregnancy. If you’ve booked an outdoor session, the session may be rescheduled for reasons beyond our control and we need flexibility if that happens.

Why should I book a Studio Maternity Photography Session?

The advantage is convenience and control. You can shoot any time of the day regardless of the weather.


Why should I book an Outdoor Maternity Photography Session?

The natural beauty of a pregnant woman in a beautiful outdoor backdrop is simply breathtaking! Disadvantages are that the shoot is weather-dependent and shooting hours are limited to the golden hour of sunrise or sunset (when the quality of natural light is at its best). Reschedules can happen and may trigger the rescheduling of other related appointments (e.g. professional makeup and hair artist, etc.). Remember your bug spray. Be prepared to walk/hike to the location and change outfits outdoors.

What should I wear?

We will choose your outfits/gowns together during our in-home consultation, prior to the session.

What products do you offer?

The true treasure of your portrait session is the creation of stunning custom portraits for display in your home. I offer many different albums, print boxes, canvases, and fine art prints to choose from. I partnered with one of the best professional labs in the world to make sure your photos will stand out at your home. Please contact me to receive the full list of products and pricing.

How do I place an order?

You will decide which products and the number of images you like during your View&Order appointment, within 1 or 2 weeks after your photo session. This is a one-to-one meeting with Amanda so she can help you materialize your memories from your newborn photography session.

What type of payments do you accept?

Credit/Debit cards, cash or e-transfer, and depending on how much your total is, instalment payments are available.

How to Find the Right Calgary Maternity Photographer Near Me?

In the quest for a maternity photographer, it’s common for individuals to turn to Google and search for terms like “maternity photography near me” or “maternity photographer near me.” While this search may yield numerous options in the Calgary area, it can be challenging to determine which one to choose. Opting for the photographer closest to your home might seem convenient, but the true priority lies in discovering a studio that offers the finest maternity photography experience and exquisite artwork.

“I’m Amanda & I’m passionate about maternity photography.

Hello and welcome to my page! I’m Amanda, the creative face behind Amanda Dams Photography and I’d love to meet you!

Pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but it doesn’t always feel that way. While you may be lucky enough to enjoy some perks, like glowing skin, luxurious locks, and a cute baby bump, you’re also going to see the downsides of pregnancy – swollen ankles, newfound tiger stripes, and a rollercoaster of mood swings.  Sounds fun, right? Even though pregnancy can have its less-than-enjoyable moments, your body is doing an incredibly beautiful thing. You’ll never regret documenting this change with maternity photos and I’m here to help you with that!
