The Celebrity Experience

I will work with you to create uniquely beautiful photographs, combining the glamour of Hollywood, the sophistication of Royalty and the personal expression of your own values and taste.


You deserve the best.  Timeless and classic, your maternity and newborn images will become a family heirloom that future generations will enjoy, admire and cherish.

Simply put, Therena C. Art & Photography is the ultimate choice for those who demand the finer things in life.

Your Custom Maternity & Newborn Session

Treat yourself to something special. You deserve it.  You are one of a kind and your maternity and newborn images should be too. 


I meet with each client before their session for a styling and design consultation.  You get a chance to see the studio, peruse the wardrobe filled with gorgeous gowns, select the colours and props for your newborn session and have a chance to touch and feel the exclusive custom photo products I offer in my collections.  Together we create something unique to you and your vision. 


Rest assured, you are in excellent hands with me as the master of your maternity and newborn memories.  Yes, professional photos may be a luxury personal indulgence, but why compromise? You've never settled for ordinary before!

What to Expect

A maternity session with me is a unique and special experience.  You'll feel pampered throughout the session.  With beautiful gowns to choose from and professional hair and makeup provided during your photo session to enhance your natural beauty, you will look and feel like a celebrity.  


I completely understand that you may feel a little uncomfortable about your body at this time in your life, but I can assure you that the way I will light and pose you will make you look and feel beautiful. 


I also know that once your new baby arrives, life can be hectic and things can be easily forgotten. That is why I provide a full-service studio where all you have to do is show up, relax and enjoy the experience of someone taking care of you for once!




This service is not inexpensive. I like to say that it is reassuringly expensive since I know that my clients have exacting standards.


Your maternity and newborn photos are an investment in yourself both now and in the future.  It's an investment that will be repaid many times over throughout your lifetime as well as the lifetime of your children.


As the preferred maternity and newborn photographer among couples of distinction, my services are in high demand.  I strictly limit the number of clients I take on to ensure that I provide them with the attention and personalized service they deserve.

Ready to Book?

Are you ready to experience this world-class service?  Do you want to be a celebrity for the day? Or do you simply have more burning questions about how I can create the most extraordinary experience and images for you?
