Archive for '4. maternity'
This session was one of my favorite belly sessions, with one of my favorite people and at my favorite place in Seattle. Session took place at Discovery Park, I love Discovery because it is just a quick 10 min drive from the city and it feels like you are in the middle of no-where. This obviously took place several months ago when it was not quite so frigid here and the sunlight was perfect. Juliet and Justin have since welcomed miss Josefina into the world and she if perfect. That session coming to the blog soon. Until then enjoy the countdown to miss Josefina…
These are a few of my favorite things………
Those of you who know me know that I love pregnant belies and fresh babies, and when I get to photograph each step along the way it just really is one of my favorite things! Mary contacted me in the early months of her pregnancy to set up a maternity shoot and it worked out that I got to be there for miss Malia’s birth and we again reunited for a 6-month session. I am a Labor and Delivery RN and I get to be there for many births, this one however, was the first one that I had the opportunity to photograph and I have to admit it was beautiful and I got a little tear for this one.
The maternity and 6 month session took place at Green Lake and we were blessed with no rain & sunshine on both occasions!
Such a beautiful and fun family!
~ thank you Mike, Mary and Malia for such a beautiful experience
~before & after…….
Recently I have been more aware that life can present its sets of challenges and pains, I personally have family members that are close to me that are struggling with sickness, young and old. Life’s hard realities are ever present.
That being said, sometimes I am overwhelmed with the love I see in others. This couple is no exception. The number one thing I love about being a photographer is that I get a front row seat in people’s expression of affection and love for each other. I get a glimpse into how they look at one another and it is in these moments I am reminded that life is beautiful. Okay, I will stop there in an effort to not sound to sappy.
It is no secret I love baby bumps and today I am sharing a family that is expecting 2 babies which equals double the excitement. Enjoy, and I hope you feel the love
Hi there and Happy Monday!!!
Today I have for you one of my favorite types of sessions. Photographing bellies and babies is how I got started in this photography business world. Being that I moonlight as a labor and delivery nurse I have an affinity for both the beauty of a mother’s tummy and that little life that awaits inside.
The first part of this shoot I partnered with Jenn Blake from “bow tie & bustle”. Jenn came up with the concept and design for this super fun “bun in the oven” inspired theme. See more of Jenn’s work at www.bowtieandbustle.com. We were also featured on “On to Baby” a cute blog about all things lovely for moms and babies.
When little Sophia came I was able to photograph a few more gorgeous moments for this beautiful family.
