YOU GUYS!!!!!! Maternity is one of my absolute favorite sessions to photograph- it encompasses so much beauty, love and light. It captures one of the most incredible times in a woman’s life- the one where she is 2 people (sometimes more, lol), she is growing abundant and beautiful life within her and with it comes so much beauty and joy. Saying this, One of my favorite locations has to be Arabia Mountain on any day whether sunny or cloudy but, capturing that golden sun setting from the mountain tops the cake. I am so thrilled to share some of my recent favorite images with you all!!!!!!! ENJOY!!!!
Meet baby Clara Faye (seriously, how cute is her name!!!). She was a sweet little princess that just wanted mommy to snuggle her the whole time <3 Which made for some seriously awesome shots!!! I LOVE this sweet family and was way BEYOND excited when she told me not only was she expecting..but expecting a baby GIRL (she has a little man too.) As a momma of 3 boys my heart does a happy dance when I get to play with a baby girl in the studio!!! It's so fun to get to use the pinks/purples...yellows and sweet headbands. Clara looked AHMAZING in pink. Take a peek into what our session together was like.
MEET Baby BENNETT!!!! I have to put his name in ALL caps because...well...he was kind of a big deal. Bennett came earthside at a whooping 11.5 lbs...and shout out to his momma because she did it with no epidural! Now, lets preface with saying...big babies are usually not a fan of being moved..posed...and anything and everything I do during a session. Big babies are all about their food so.....a lot of stuff we had to do with him wrapped up nice and tight. He was so stinking cute and cuddley though so I couldn't even be mad about it ;). I think we were all surprised with what we DID get though. Take a sneak peak into our session with baby Bennett below.
Meet sweet baby Harper!!! She was a total dream boat in the studio. Not only was our session a blast but, seeing the glow on a new moms face is something that drives me to give them the best images I possibly can. My sweet families will have these memories..moments and details for the rest of their lives, not to mention they are generational. Didn't you LOVE to look at photo albums from your childhood, or your parents and their parents?? I know I sure did!!! I love that I am giving my clients THOSE moments and memories to last them a lifetime. Harper not only had the most beautiful coloring but she looked so beautiful on every drop and prop I put her in/on!!! Take a peak into our session below.
Sweet baby Sebastian!!!!!!! He was a dreamy little doll for his newborn session and big sis was SO thrilled to snuggle up to her new baby for pictures!!! I loved the diversity of our session from posed to lifestyle-esque for family. I am SOOOO thrilled with the new white room/bed set up in the studio, its the BEST addition I could have added. Take a peak to see what we did below!!! <3 ENJOY!
There are some things in life that come exactly when they are supposed too- meet sweet Brinley, Brinley was 8 days old and AMAZING for her very first photoshoot. This sweet little baby girl didn't mind being posed, moved or wrapped one bit. Mom was SOOOO excited that she booked me at only 15 weeks pregnant!! She knew that ANP studios was a perfect match for her and her blooming family and, I am so glad she did! Giving families these life long memories to have and to cherish is what makes every thing hard about this job SO worth it. I sit back and think to myself "I can't believe this is MY career, how did I get SO lucky?" Take a peak into our sweet session together and you will see exactly what I mean.
Hello ALL!!! I can't believe I am just now getting around to blogging this session, because its EVERYTHING!!!
This momma-to-be ROCKED her maternity sesh. Beyonce on loud (and repeat), fan going, and a stunning momma. What more can a photographer even ask for? I may have had more fun than she did (you totally get this if your a tog and you see that back of camera goodness.) This session rocked for so many reasons but, I loved being able to have full creativity of this shoot, as it helped me utilize new techniques and lighting structures for indoor maternity sessions. Most people think that a studio maternity session won't give you much variety....but, I beg to differ and, I just may have found my new favorite thing to do!!!!
