When Maternity Session turns into a Family Session, you sure can expect lots of energy and that’s exactly what we had when a sweet daughter of this glowing expecting mamma joined us.
So glad we hugged tight and let her be a center of attention for couple frames. Those moment will fly by and since soon she will be a big sister, attention seams just a perfect thing to give her, right?
It was all about love, new life and bright future. That light couldn’t be any more magical and simply perfect for the occasion as you can see.
Soul, joy and illuminating beauty, that’s all I see when browsing once again through those images. Such a blessing to be able capture those for them!
Dreamy, soulful, beautiful opportunity to capture love of two people that not only awaiting their first child, but they love each other so deeply that I was afraid images won’t be able reflect on how much.
Session full of intimacy, trust and happiness. Session that I will surely never forget and I am so very much looking forward to photograph first days of those two people becoming parents!
Two locations: home and Atlantic Beach during stormy weather and pure beauty.
My first maternity Shoot Out was hosted in Seattle just a couple of weeks ago!
I got to tell you that I wasn’t so sure about this idea at first, but oh, boy!! I am so glad I did it!
There was a lot going on, since while I was there I got news about the possibility of a category 4 hurricane hitting my hometown Jacksonville, FL, where my children and husband were. So you can imagine that my heart was pretty much out of my chest between phone calls confirming that they were fine.
A perfect shoot out for me meant a small group of women, whom I could come to know by name, who’s work I will be familiar with. That was really important for me.
I not only wanted to help them see light and shadows, being able to use small indoor spaces to their advantage, and of course, get beautiful images, but also feel a sense of connection and knowing that I am an open book.
All was ready. Snacks and water on the table. Stunning pregnant lady arranged to meet us at the hotel room where we were shooting. Casual comfortable clothing chosen.
Purposely I did not clean all the space before they came, so I could show them how the “before” looked and what we can do with it. After rearranging some furniture, so many possibilities of light came forward! After closing the blinds, so many new shapes, forms and moods were created… Shadow plays such a huge role in indoor photography for me!
To see excitement in all the ladies’ faces and constant screen sharing was the best, BEST result ever! Each of them were rotating with each different light spot and every single one of them grabbed so many amazing images and showed me a new way to reflect our model’s beauty.
Atmosphere was just amazing!
I was left with a warm feeling and an appreciation for being able to share my abilities with ladies whose talents are simply not deniable!
After this, I know this can not be first and the last time…
Planning Spring workshop in Colorado is already in progress, but I think I found another way to express myself in this photography world!
I am looking back at this session and smiling. This little girl’s mom told me that her daughter is quite shy. Pretty much 30 minutes into the session we were chasing each other and holding hands and she smiled with the best toothless smile ever!
So sweet that this big sister was a part of her mom’s Maternity Session!
Connection between mom and a daughter is one of the most beautiful ones and to capture them in such a great moment is just heartwarming, wonderful experience!
Did I mentioned that I am in love with the rainbow flare image of mom??!! Stunning! No editing tricks there, just right lens.
It was just amazing to be able not only travel to see my family in Europe, but to also help my clients there as well.
There is a little bit of melancholia when I think about Poland.
It’s been over 2 years when I’ve been there last time and saw my family. It felt pretty incredible to drive around and find spots for session. Even though it was pretty cold in the beginning of Spring, the excitement and photographing this beautiful mom to be kept my soul and spirit warm.
This is new beginning of spreading my services in and outside of United States. I am so looking forward to all maternity, children and family sessions outside Florida!
When another photographer, whose work I follow, asks to shoot her Maternity Session…
IT’S SUCH AN HONOR. It’s simply such an honor for others to put trust in me. I feel this way about every client of mine. There is something even more special, when somebody who understands photography so well and who is so very talented, decides to book a session with me while they are away from home. Floored? Yes, I was floored. Most definitely! I know this lady for quite a long time,through Clickin Moms mostly, but I pretty much follow her work all over social media. So when I learned she was coming to Jacksonville AND booked a session with me, AND I would meet her family and see her beautiful belly, I WAS ALL IN. Head first! Hahaha, not kidding! I have to tell you, I loved their kids! Such fun, sweet kiddos and I think it is fair to say I made friends with them for life. Ok, joking! But we did ended up drinking milkshakes together and eating burgers, so that tells you something… We were hungry. Ha! We wished to have a little more time, but I simply couldn’t wait to get back home and upload those images! This mom was glowing! I gasped pretty much each time I was taking picture of her and wind came to frame…
I feel like I am giving you too many words. Just look, and you will know exactly what I mean.
