Maternity sessions with little kiddos included are such a blast. I love the variety of images created, that bonding experience between the siblings (maybe it’s just their mutual wariness of the camera, although we played enough fun games for them to forget about it), and creating and preserving memories for them for years to come. Bonus: we were lucky enough for a gorgeous summer sunset to add some magic to the images.
So… I LOVE maternity sessions. And I love playing in water. So I was delighted when this adventurous couple agreed to get in the creek with me for some fun maternity photos and the feeding of my creative soul!
Sometimes I need to create wholly for myself, free from an agenda or specific expectations. So I was delighted when a fellow photog friend suggested we head down to the river for some wet, messy creekin’ shots. We met first thing in the morning hoping for a beautiful sunrise, but we were greeted with a dark and drizzly day. It ended up being perfect for capturing the mood. As much as I love that golden hour glow, I find the mood that shadows and contrast create is equally beautiful. See for yourself.
For the last several years I have volunteered my services to raise money for the Columbus Babywearing group by hosting fundraising mini-sessions. This year things worked out a little differently due to covid, but I was still able to host a few families in my backyard studio who are members of the group. Got some great shots of them snuggling their babes!
