“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.” – Anne Christian Buchanan
I am often asked what my favorite sessions are to photograph. Without a doubt, hands down, newborn portraiture brings such joy to my heart! All the details from the way the light fills baby's face, to documenting all that is newborn from eyelashes, tufts of hair, their sweet little chests rising and falling as they sleep. It's indescribable. The room is also 90 degrees so it may not be for the faint of heart, but it's worth every second. I pour my heart and give my soul to every baby I photograph. This may seem dramatic unless you've worked with me before but providing you with safe posing, amazing textiles, and fantastic light is the heart of my portraiture work. However, maternity sessions are a close second favorite! When you're pregnant, it's such an exciting time because you are carrying a precious, perfect little life. You feel your baby's kicks and a photo shoot showcasing your pregnancy is a wonderful way to celebrate all that is feminine and soft. I encourage your spouse to participate too so that we can also portray the love between expecting parents. Because I adore newborns and pregnancy, I offer a fantastic package that acts as a fine art piece in your home. It's simply called the "Maternity + Posed Newborn" Package and is $900 + sales tax. For both sessions you're presented with an array of stunning images and clients save $100 by booking together. You can read more about investment here.
Here is a lovely family who I had to honor of working with! I'll be previewing some of my favorite images from their outdoor maternity session as well as their in home posed newborn portion. Thanks for stopping by!
After the maternity session, I simply told the lovely couple to let me know when Baby arrives. They ended up waiting to find out the gender of the baby and they called Baby "Sunshine" while they were expecting. The nursery is yellow and filled with all that is soft and yellow and just sweet as can be. So, during the maternity session we used some cute props from their home that are also in the nursery, such as this sunshine sign.
And of course, when baby was born...IT'S A GIRL! A beautiful, chubby, perfect, and ever so stunning bundle of joy. This in mind, I designed a session that reflected both the nursery colors (soft yellow for the sunshine nickname) and then also incorporating my favorite rustic, antique cradle and soft blushes, cream, and other hues such as mauve, apricot and peach.
