Studio Maternity Sessions
Many of my clients love the appearance of all in-studio sessions, especially during our cold winter months in the state of Michigan. Studio sessions have a clean, simple look but still have beautiful contrast. Studio sessions are great for clients expecting during the cold winter months who don't want to brave the cold. Or clients who prefer a modern and simple esthetic to their portraits. Let's create some art together!
OUtDoor Maternity Sessions
Is there anything more beautiful than a Michigan summer? Well, our springs and falls are equally gorgeous. Come join me and we will enjoy the beauty of the great Michigan outdoors and capture the perfect photos with the backgrounds nature has given us. I love a beautiful sunset and the golden tones before the sun goes down. And many of my outdoor sessions end at the lake... my happy place!

Isa chose to have her session all in-studio. After arriving at my studio, we spent some time in front of my client closet and she chose some amazing gowns to wear for her session.
Then we got to work and had a great time. Here are a few of my favorites from her session with me.

cara's outdoor session
What a gorgeous Michigan summer night we had for this session with Cara and her family. I met Cara and her family at the beach 2 hours before sunset so we could capture her images during the golden hour and end the evening on the lake with a gorgeous sunset.
Here are a few of my favorites from her beach shoot. Enjoy!

carla's studio and outdoor session
Carla looked so stunning for her maternity session. We started at my studio where she picked some gorgeous gowns from my client closet. After photographing her studio images, we headed outdoors. It was a breezy summer evening so the blue silk dress she chose blew beautifully in the wind. We finished her shoot at the lake where we had the most gorgeous sunset. Here are a few of my favorites from her photo, enjoy!

breann's studio and outdoor session
This mama was an absolute goddess for her maternity shoot. Breann looked stunning in each of the dresses she chose from my client closet and she chose a few of my favorites. She wanted a complete glam vibe and I think we nailed it. Due to the weather, she had a sunrise session and it was a beautiful fall morning here in Michigan. We finished with. in studio images.

Alyse's outdoor and studio Session
This is the second time I had the pleasure of working with Alyse and her family. This time around, she was expecting a baby girl, so she chose a gorgeous plum gown for her outdoor fall photos. We also got some beautiful shots in my studio, so her gallery had such a lovely variety of images. Here are a few of my favorites from her family fall maternity shoot. Enjoy!
No two pregnancies are alike… each maternity session is customized to your style and preferences. Every client has access to my exclusive maternity dress closet that is always growing.
Every session starts with a conversation where we will discuss your goals for your photographs and that's where the planning begins. Every last detail is considered to create a one of a kind boutique photography experience so you can treasure the memories of your pregnancy for a lifetime.
The ideal time to photograph your baby belly is between 32-34 weeks. Every session starts in my studio two hours before sunset.
My studio is located in the hills of Clarkston. I service Southeast Michigan and the Metro Detroit areas. I have clients that have traveled from all over the state of Michigan for their custom pregnancy photo sessions.
Congratulations Mama, let's get the conversation started! I am excited to hear all about your pregnancy. What are you craving? Are you having a boy or a girl or is baby a surprise?
Based on your preferred method of contact, I will reach out to you via email or by phone to chat with you about my sessions and the experience you can expect by hiring me to be your photographer. I will also ask you some questions regarding your preferences to make sure I am a good fit for you and your family.
1. Say Hello
2. Design consultation
After our initial contact, we will schedule a virtual meeting to get the fun started. During our consultation together we will start designing the perfect session for you. No details are left out and all your preferences are taken into consideration.
During the consultation I will show you all of my product offerings and go over all the investment information with you. My goal for this meeting is to leave no questions unanswered, so we are both prepared for your shoot. Let's get you booked!
Your big day has finally arrived! Nervous? Excited? No matter how you’re feeling, I am going to be there guiding you and posing you in the BEST way that features your most amazing characteristics. When you arrive, we will take about 15 minutes and pick your wardrobe from my client's closet. Then it’s time to shine! Sessions usually take 90 minutes to an hour for maternity and family sessions. Newborn sessions usually take 2-3 hours depending on how the baby is settling between poses.
3. Let's make magic!
This is arguably the most exciting part of the experience (other than receiving your final images, of course!) This appointment is scheduled for a date within 2 weeks of your session and is where you will view your soft-proofed images for the first time, choose your favorites, and place your order! While I do not fully edit all images for this appointment, I do fully master retouching a few images so you will have an idea of what your final images will look like!
During this appointment, we will narrow down your images together and you will decide if you would like to purchase a collection of images or a piece of wall art created specifically for you or both!
4. viewing and ordering appointment
The day is here, you get to take your gorgeous custom artwork home to display, enjoy and share with family and friends. I will send you home with all the information on how to care for your artwork to insure it lasts a lifetime.

A photograph is the pause button of life...
Our photography session allows you to preserve special moments forever! Together we will create amazing photos that you can enjoy for many years to come. And pieces of art that can be passed on for generations. My goal is to provide a custom boutique photography experience for you and your family. Each session is tailored to your requests and preferences down to every last detail.
I highly recommend Kat Figlak Photography! She did our family photos and I am SO in love with them. She made the whole family feel so comfortable and was even able to get my very serious two year old to smile in all the pictures! We've had professional photos taken before and these are the best photos we have ever taken without question. I will cherish them forever! I'll be using Kat every year for family pictures:)
I would recommend Kat over and over again. She made the whole maternity and newborn picture experience so special and comfortable. She even endured my whole family with our suitcases of clothes...which I realized I didn’t need! She has an amazing setup. The photos were phenomenal and even the way she delivers them to you is so special. I can’t wait for my little guy to grow so we can plan our next shoot!
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan
I found Kat on so many platforms with so many people recommending her work and when I say I needed her, I really did! This pregnancy is so important to me and my husband and I wanted someone who I knew could capture my journey perfectly.
Let me start by saying she is very thorough and explains in detail her work, packages, and pricing. There is nothing left unsaid and you know what you're investing in. The day of the shoot she had such a huge selection of dresses to choose from that whatever you envision, she will make it happen! During the shoot she makes you feel comfortable and safe. She always checked to make sure I was okay with the different positions as well. As she was coaching, I loved how she was willing to do whatever it took to make sure I was satisfied. She’s so sweet and nice and truly cares about her clients. We’ve also hired her for our newborn pictures because I know they will be just as amazing as her other work! Thank you so much Kat! She’s more than a photographer, she’s an artist capturing important moments in everyone’s lives.
Kat is not a photographer, she is a gifted artist and modeling coach. I am so uncomfortable in front of the camera, but she suggested where to put my hands and where to look – making it so easy. She offered me her entire closet full of gorgeous maternity dresses to choose from. I think we tried 8-9 different dresses, countless positions, and did some outdoor and studio shots. She even welcomed my husband and 2 year old into the photoshoot (and boy, was my kiddo difficult!). The experience was wonderful! And then I saw the photographs… I was speechless. As I looked at my pregnant self in these images I can honestly say, I’ve never felt so beautiful, strong, and powerful as a woman in my entire life! She was able to artfully craft each photo in ways I didn’t even think were possible, replacing my face in one photo for another I liked better, adding a water effect, and a window backdrop. She even edited out the bag of goldfish my son wouldn’t put down. The time and attention she put into each and every one of my final top 17 photos goes well beyond the norm in the profession. If you are looking for a photographer that will give you 50+ digital photos that will never leave your computer, Kat is not for you, but if you are looking for 15+ digital and printed images that you will deeply cherish forever, I can’t recommend Kat highly enough. She’s incredible and worth every penny.

Kat is THE best!!!! Her warm personality makes the shoot comfortable and fun. Her attention to detail makes the end product something to cherish for a lifetime!
