Maternity Portraits

Welcome! I'm Nimi, an award-winning and leading maternity photographer in Minneapolis. My studio is located in Eden Prairie, MN. As a mother, I know how important documenting this special time is, not only because your pregnancy lasts a short time but also because, as the support structure of your family, you are often thinking about everyone else before yourself. This session is for you to have your moment. A chance to be pampered, to feel beautiful, to feel special.

To assure that you will have an amazing experience, we schedule an in-person or phone pre-session consultation where we will gather all the details for your session including wardrobe, styling, and personal items in order to plan your session. Nimz Photography also offers a selection of gowns and outfits for you to wear during your session.
