I absolutely love when clients choose to add on a maternity session to their newborn session. Maternity marks the very start of baby's first year and this time goes by SO fast. It's one of my biggest regrets with both of my pregnancies - I never did any maternity sessions. Sad, right? I never felt beautiful enough to celebrate this amazing time. I was so wrong! Pregnancy is beautiful, friends!
These sessions also play another important role in my client experience. It gives us an opportunity to get to know each other before I am invited into your home, your personal space...newborn sessions always feel more relaxed when we already know each other. It's a very special thing.
This session was amazing. Everything came together so perfectly! The beautiful location, this stunning momma-to-be + her sweet husband...seriously, it was amazing. I could not be any happier with how this collection turned out! These two were so much fun to be around + they were SO sweet. I can't wait to meet their baby girl! These two are going to make wonderful parents. I just know it.
Thanks for such a great evening, Ashley + Chris! See you both again soon.
I've been wanting to get back into film shooting for quite some time. (Did you know my photography journey started at the age of 10 with a film camera?) I am in love with the look + feel only film can give...you just can't get that with digital. A few months ago I decided to jump in with both feet and take the leap...and I purchased a medium format film camera. This session was the first one I brought this camera to and I took a few shots. I was too nervous to do a full roll of film for fear of completely messing up. Well, to my surprise all 7 shots I took turned out. I am feeling much more confident now and can't wait to do more film at my upcoming sessions! I can feel it in my heart that this is a huge turning point in my journey and am so excited to see where this takes me.
