Another maternity session! One thing I love about doing these sessions is that I now see these little nuggets (babies) afterwards and they are too cute for words.
For this session we went to a park between both of our homes. It was way off the beaten path and void of people. Perfect!
There was a small clearing and the weather was near perfect, it’s always just the wind we have problems with.
This is such a classic and wonderful maternity shot. All 3 family members in one. Little guys first picture!
I love barn door backdrops, especially red.
Baby boys first pair of sandals.
Heather brought this pretty blue polka dot ribbon to the session, she was ready to pop!
Turns out it was good we did this session when we did, because baby William came early.
So, let me start off by saying this was such a fun shoot. Not only were there SO many places to photograph on this property, but it was a gorgeous day!
Does it really get much cuter than that? I don’t think so….
Her son Jayden was a hoot. He was making me laugh the whole time.
I absolutely love this photograph of her silhouetted by the window!
Such an adorable little family. I am always honored to capture such precious memories.
A few weekends ago I was fortunate enough to photograph one of my favorite families! I met the Martinez family during my time as a preschool teacher to their young daughter Kaylee. For some reason, Kaylee found me hillarious, and vise versa.
For the family photos, her great dane “Muncher” accompanied them. I love when families incorporate their pets!
This giant guy was so well behaved.
The session was at HighBanks Metro Park. If you have never been there, I HIGHLY recommend it! It is truly a gorgeous place to walk, hike, and take the kids. The trails wrap around the entire park.
This girl is such a ham. Every time I see her she has a whole new vocabulary and an increasingly adorable wardrobe.
Let me get this off my chest…i’m a poor blogger.
Many times I have started these pages and they never seem to get past the first post.
But not this time! This will be a new creative outlet with all my thoughts and ramblings on past & present work. The work done for my clients as well as myself.
So to start, I wanted to share some images I took at the Perkins Observatory. The place itself is…interesting. Off the beaten path, it can be found by following a very small sign, up a dirt road (through a golf course).
I’ve never seen another person at this location each time i’ve been there. In fact, I’m convinced it has been shut down each time, but the fliers out front state they are in fact open for tours.
The windows are one step away from being boarded up. Power lines have fallen in the back, water is pooled at the bottom of the basement stairs, and moss covers the stairs.
It didn’t really feel ‘creepy’ to me however until I later reviewed the images. They seemed like they were of an abandoned building, even though they were not.
While I was there it actually started to storm. I jumped into my car at the last minute, and waited it out. Afterwards it was almost surreal. Every plant and bug was covered in water droplets and a light mist.
It is a beautiful and secluded little area, right off of 23. You can’t hear cars or people. Just nature.
