Although this isn’t a “typical” maternity image of mine, I truly enjoy stretching my creativity and experimenting with my clients.  For this example, L wanted a shot similar to this and we made it happen. I *love* her look here:  her expression, blowing hair, hand delicately touching her face, other hand (with a touch of attitude) on her hip, lines & shadows created by the fabric, and lastly her perfect belly.

Life as a photographer, for me, means constantly learning and stretching my abilities and creativity  — I always welcome client ideas (and I’m glad clients welcome mine)!  What’s really been eye-opening lately, is an online form I have clients fill out when they book a session.  Their answers truly help me plan for the session and know what type of photography they lean toward.  I REALLY take those seriously — I know it will help our connection even more!

Stay tuned for my latest and greatest in “stretching”!!!  I have some fun equipment coming any day now and look forward to sharing it with you!

Have one incredible day!  ~m

I had THE BEST morning with this super fun couple who are expecting a baby in the next few weeks.  They were all smiles and full of great ideas.  🙂

We had fun (minus the ant pile!) roaming around a desert flower-filled greenbelt near their house.   Then we whipped up a natural light studio-ish set up in their living room.  Quite new for me!  I loved being able to experiment inside with a backdrop — I think it’ll be awesome for newborn shoots, too!   Anyway, back to today’s session…

Stunning!

Fun[ky] post-processing with an extra bit of blur.  🙂

Inside images coming within the week!  🙂  I do have to leave you with THE CUTEST pic of their current baby girl — Daisy the Goldendoodle.

An AMAZINGLY sweet, well-behaved doggie.  She was a crack up!

Can’t wait to meet the new baby!  Best wishes, you two for a speedy, safe delivery.

Have a great day!  ~m

I love how different this image is.  In the world of photography, images are so often inspired by other images we’ve seen and felt a connection with.  It felt good to just be in the moment and do my own thing.   

I love how her eye looks right through you — my eyes long for the other half, but are also content and a bit intrigued by what I see. 

See more of this shoot here,  here and here

Tonight I went to a photography workshop that revolved around newborn and maternity photography.  LOVED it!  Any time my brain can be filled with photography related tidbits, I’m a happy gal.  And when those tidbits are baby and prego momma related I’m seriously THRILLED!  🙂

Oh, and FL sessions are TOTALLY done.  Wahoo…happy dance!  I’m right on schedule with current clients too.  🙂  Now I just need to do some workshop editing, website updating, and there are also going to be a few blog changes coming up…be on the lookout. 

Have one lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by!!!  ~m

S and J are full of love, life and just plain awesome individuals.  What makes them extra-special though, is how they are when they’re together.  Tender, loving, hilarious, fun…   During our shoot today, I loved how every once in a while hubby would step back and really admire his wife.  He’d tell her she was doing a great job, or sigh that “she’s so beautiful” sigh.  Gotta love that!!!

^ Check out that love!

As a mom, I always want to tell first-time parents how wonderful the journey to (and through) parenthood is.  I remember people telling me that (and thinking, “I know, I know!”)…BUT the only way you can ever really understand that is to have a child of your own.   I can’t wait for them to experience this new direction their lives are about to take.  As they embark on this new “adventure” with cautious feet, my only advice is to merely be themselves.  There is one lucky little guy inside that adorable belly, and two very lucky parents are about to experience “family” in its purest form. 

^  SO peaceful

I had SUCH a nice time today with you two.  I can’t wait to meet your “strong” little L and see all of you together as a family!   Thanks for a special evening.  🙂  ~m
