I met this family 2 years ago with their first born son- August. They had a fur sibling named "Noodle" which was a Shih-Tzu breed and so well behaved. Now fast forward some time- I hear news they are expecting a new member to the clan. A baby girl! I love when clients keep be connected in their journey. I feel like a part of me is given to the session whenever that happens. Like a self-proclaimed Aunt(haha).
I made a cute Easter setup and some other new approaches too. Big brother was curious and the idea of a new baby hasn't yet "sunk" in yet. I live for these moments!
Every mum deserves to be transformed into a gorgeous goddess that she is. Carrying a child is a beautiful process and all babies are carried differently. I can say it's one of those moments that I didn't grasp for myself as I felt "large", hiding from the camera at all costs. Something I regret now looking back.
I dedicate maternity sessions with a more editorial approach. It's bold, it's wholesome with just a splash of magic.
I want to make each session as tailored as possible to what the colors in each family's home is. Momma mentioned she will have a space themed nursery for her lil' man so I do my best to add little bits and pieces to the session. I've been lucky with all these babies having such amazing fantastic hair by the way!
Big sis is such a doll and I couldn't help but mention that the parents make adorable babies. I mean, the proof is in the "pudding"!
This little lady's middle name is Rose. Of course, her parents wanted to incorporate real roses into her session! I even purchased a special rose backdrop and headband just for her too. Because, I love spoiling my babies.
Not only is she super gorgeous, but the amount of hair she has is just a tad fuller than mine at this point =P
I met this lil' guy and fell in loveeeee! I design my sets prior to scheduled sessions and his hair was so magnificient. Momma wanted a very minimalistic approach and I am all for it. Nothing makes me happier than seeing parents have a hard time picking out their photos(because then that means I did a good job, maybe too well haha).
Just look at those blonde locks and squishy cheeks is enough for me to want to keep him!
I see a lot of families, Jessica and Patrick Ginn are amazing folks with amazing girls. I just cannot express how amazing my job is, in fact.. I don't even consider it a job when I get to spoil babies. These girls were so caring for their new baby sister and I just couldn't get enough of their dynamic. It really reminded me... what joy it is to have a bigger family.

This perfect, precious boy is on cloud 9. I know every baby is different but he was just soooo chill.
I've never had a baby with such relaxed hands with little to no startle reflex. I was literally able to pose him in any way and he would of been happy. To this is a great start of a year!

Jax, the boy with the most amazing curly tin drill hair. He's also so smart, polite and full of energy. Mom wants to see about getting his portfolio done and submit them to agencies. I told her to look no further, we can plan a play date and I'll just capture his spirit and fun personality.
It was nice to get a break from the rain lately here in Portland Oregon so we made a trip out and got these spunky yet sweet shots!

This is one of those situations where I would pay the parents to just let me play with their babies, haha! Who doesn't want to see twin babies on their first birthday doing after cake? No one.
Of course, dressing them up is part of the fun too but more so that that- their life will forever be connected to each other. They need to have as many memories to look back on as possible.
Because, they went through about 500 face expressions all within the hour!

Going back to my roots. I've dedicated a tremendous amount of years to fashion and editorial commercial photography in the past.
Being on set with models, editors, wardrobe stylist, makeup and lighting crew is something I left behind and I do miss from time to time.
I'm going to focus on bringing some of that back for my studio maternity photo shoots. Yes, I do everything myself now but my heart belongs to editorial. I love everything refined and artsy about a beautiful Mum-to-be.
