So, my wife is a self-admitted control freak and stresses about most things. As a mother-to-be, I was sure that having her pregnancy photos taken would be no different. I’m not sure how she found Miss Madison Photo Props but she was enamored with the photos and was “all in” on the process. Leaving nothing to chance, my wife decided she would get her dress from Miss Madison herself…you know…so she could control part of the process. Better to like the dress she picked out than risk a photographer selection. Miss Madison was receptive to her choices but I think also picked up on my wife’s tendency for control. So, when Miss Madison disagreed with my wife’s dress selection based on her small stature, a carefully crafted suggestion for alternate dress was proposed. My wife fell in love with it immediately and really felt like Miss Madison was trying to insure the best possible outcome and not just pushing ideas or a higher cost dress. All in all, it was a wonderful process for my wife with low stress and even relinquished a little bit of control. Thank you Miss Madison.
” I just received this gown just two days before this client, and when she put it on, it was like this gown was made for her. I am sure that you hear this all the time, but I TRULY love getting your gowns in, and my clients always leave feeling like a million bucks! Thank you for all your hard work, beautiful designs, and top notch customer service.” ~Alyssa Henderson
This is my 3rd pregnancy and first time doing maternity pictures. Wearing your gown made me feel beautiful. Thank you!
I honestly can’t remember where I originally came across Miss Madison Photo Props other than it was on Facebook. I was able to join her preferred photographers group and just stalked at the beginning. I loved her beautiful gowns and was in awe of the talented photographers who were sharing just stunning images of their maternity sessions using her gowns. I knew I wanted to offer that experience to my clients. I do remember the first gown I ordered however! Sunny sometimes does fun games in her groups where the winner gets an additional percentage off their purchase. As many of you know, I am a competitor so I was determined to win! My persistence paid off and I was able to snag a discount code which was awesome for a photographer who was just starting out and didn’t have a huge client base yet! I decided to use my code to purchase a gown for a fundraising opportunity I was planning. My husband’s cousin had recently invited us to be a part of the Denver Walk to End Alzheimer’s event. We had agreed to be photographers the day of the walk but I also wanted to raise awareness for the event, disease, and caregivers in honor of my grandmother who battled dementia at the end of her life. I was offering photo sessions where a portion of the session proceeds would be donated as long as anyone in the photos wore the color purple to honor those fighting the disease. So I ordered my first Miss Madison gown in lilac so I could offer a beautiful purple option to my clients and honor my grandmother (Violet Weller) at the same time.
I was thrilled with the gown and the outcome. My client asked at the session where it was from as she had a black tie event coming up and the gown was so comfortable and it made her feel so pretty. Combined with the high quality and wonderful customer service, that was enough for me to continue ordering from Sunny.
I have been able to add several other gowns from Miss Madison to my studio closet since that first Anna gown purchase. I consistently go back to her shop for several reasons. One is the amazing customer service she and her employees provide. When you order a Miss Madison gown they provide an estimated timeline for your purchase to arrive. I love getting updates from them when my order is assigned to a seamstress, and then when it is finished and ready to be shipped. I also get tracking information with every order. I love that I am able to know these details. It makes it much more personal and easier to connect with the women who are helping me to make beautiful images and memories for my clients.
Another reason I continue to order from Sunny is the quality of her gowns and the attention to detail she provides. I fell in love with her Piper gown (yes, partly because it is the name of my daughter!) and ordered one in moss green. Once I had it on a client, I was even more enamored with it. I feel asleep one evening thinking about a couple of ideas I had for my next gown. I messaged Sunny and was able to express my ideas about using a mesh fabric on my next gown. She responded just as excited as I was and created a gown that far exceeded my expectations. Not only did she replace the lace in her original design with mesh, she custom dyed the chiffon to be a match to the new color that was created when the two fabrics were layered over one another. I was blown away by her attention to detail that she demonstrated when creating this gown.
Her designs and colors are also varied and meet the needs of so many of my clients. One way this is evident is in her line of girls gowns. The versatility that this option adds to my sessions is so appreciated. I have had several young girls wear my Charlie gown and they love how it makes them feel like a princess. The colors she offers are also beautiful – deep, rich, and luxurious. But her women’s gowns are just spectacular. I have her Everly design in Denim Blue. I love this gown and the mix of fabrics it offers. I think the sleeves are my favorite. I also recently acquired one of her newer designs – the Scarlett gown. I selected her Mauve color for this purchase. I was also able to customize my purchase by adjusting the length of the sleeves. One of my favorite aspects of this gown is the full skirt – it adds so much drama to images and yet the gown is still comfortable to wear. As I have already mentioned, Sunny makes customizing her gowns so easy. I ordered her Mia gown and it was so quick and easy to add sleeves to my order as I was wanting an option for colder Colorado winter weather. The options are endless! Each gown that arrives from Miss Madison is just as well made and gorgeous as the last. And a little bonus is how good the box smells when you open it! She adds a little extra touch when she finishes your order and I love how good her gowns smell and look fresh out of the box!
I am so excited to see what new designs she has in the works for spring and summer seasons and am so looking forward to continuing building my client closet with Miss Madison. If you are in the market for a gown for a special occasion, look her up! I cannot recommend her enough. And I love that I am also supporting a strong #bossbabe to boot! Thank you Sunny and Miss Madison Photo Props for all that you do!

My name is Jacqueline Uiterloo, I am from Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I am the owner of Jacqueline Elisabeth Photography, specializing in Maternity, Couples, Children and Families. My journey started in 2014. I’ve been in the photography business for 3 years now. I own 6 maternity dresses from Miss Madison Photo Props. When I received my first gown from Miss Madison, I was blown away by the quality! The fabric is amazing! It doesn’t wrinkle at all! You do not have to iron after washing. I already had some dresses from other designers and they wrinkle terribly! The designs from Miss Madison are gorgeous and romantic. They accentuate a woman’s body perfectly! My gowns from Miss Madison are stunning and my clients love them! I can’t wait to get my new dresses, I am so excited! Therefore I can absolutely recommend Miss Madison’s Gowns.
I have an obsession with maternity gowns let’s start with that ! When I first found Miss Madison gowns two years ago I was excited to find such a great selection of on trend styles at a price that wouldn’t put me in debt ! After my first purchase Though I was hooked not only on the beautiful dress , but the amazing customer service and beautiful personality of the designer Sunny Wells . She’s always available to answer my questions and listen to my crazy custom requests I like to dream up . I can’t stress enough how great to is to feel like you’re dealing with a friend and not just purchasing from a faceless company . Sunny really cares about all her customers and makes them each feel special , make sure to join her VIP group for lots of fun and helpful tips and a community of great gals! But back to the dresses , I get sidetracked lol. Let’s talk fabric , the one thing I really love about her fabric choice for knits is that its so wrinkle resistant , if you have a collection you understand how time consuming it is to have to steam two to four dresses before every session , saving me time is aces in my book ! The stretch is also perfection for all the many shapely pregnant mamas that come to me . I never have to worry about size ,they stretch and caress all the right places to show off the beautiful curves ! My clients feel so special and gorgeous at their sessions and I can’t stress enough how important that is for both them and me, to make a session amazing! I just really love these dresses , and I order so many I can’t even tell you how many I have anymore 😉
