Doing maternity portraits, especially when both parents take part, is really special to me. I like to be able to show off that belly – but there’s something much more important I like to highlight, and that is the relationship between the Mommy and Daddy-to-be – and their anticipation and love for their upcoming addition. Doing this in the studio allows me the chance to use some dramatic lighting (flattering for EVERYone) to really highlight the mood, and show the beauty of Mom… Love these portraits!

As a professional photographer, it’s imperative to stay on top of my education. There are always new innovations, different methods, and just awesome and new ways to be inspired to create a new type of art. After Dark Education is a wonderful event where hundreds of photographers gather to learn from each other, and from volunteer mentors, who are pioneers in the industry, and who share freely and openly during this event that is truly like no other. I was considering attending when I heard it would be in Dallas, and was put over the edge when I realized they had chosen the Hilton Bella Harbor, right here in Rockwall, as their venue. It was amazing! Here are just a few images from the 3-day event – my mind was spinning afterwards!

I love maternity sessions – they are filled with such anticipation and joy – I love capturing that love and excitement – it reminds me of my own pregnancies, and I get so excited for my clients at what they are about to embark upon! Meet Lori & Jaime – I’m sure two of the best parents out there!
What an exciting time for this family, as they prepare to welcome a new member! Big brother probably doesn’t have a clue that his world is about to change drastically – so glad they took time to enjoy their family of three before welcoming their little girl at the end of the year. I look forward to meeting her – and will show you her newborn portraits as soon as I can!
I really enjoyed working with The K’s – we had a chance to do some portraits both in studio, and outside. This shot is always one of my favorite angles to shoot with an expectant couple – so I’ll leave you with just one from their session…

This blog post, while very late, is fitting today – because today I actually shot this beautiful couple’s newborn portraits of their 6-day old son. These maternity portraits were taken back in July – it was the beginning of this heat wave we are in – and T & Patchi were such troupers – they agreed to meet at 7:30 a.m. (that’s IN THE MORNING) to get their session done before it got too hot. We were able to use a private residence with a yard that was a DREAM – I so love shooting in new locations! If you’d like to check out their new son – head on over to my Facebook page – I just posted a quick one today, because I could not stand to share at least one!
I also have to add… Lately I have had an opportunity to do more maternity portraits, and then come back later for newborn portraits. Part of what I do is capture the connections and relationships of a family – whether it be one just in the beginning stages, or one that has been going strong for some time. I find it makes such a huge difference when I have a chance to meet a couple and get to know them during their maternity session – the newborn session just seems that much more special, and I really do feel like I gain new friends with each couple I meet and follow through this exciting first year!

I have had an influx of maternity clients recently – which just warms my heart… There is nothing like this special time, especially when it is your first child, as is the case for Crista & Jason. I have recently begun offering these maternity sessions as mini-sessions – and it works really well! We even had time to do a quick maternity silhouette at the end of the shoot – which I just love…

Shawane & Mike are such a sweet couple. They are expecting their first baby together – but between them, this will be baby #7! This baby is going to be so blessed to have six big brothers and sisters, on top of a wonderful set of parents… I can’t wait to meet him!

What a cute couple Lyndsey & William are – and they are excitedly expecting their first child, and I’m so honored that they chose me to photograph their maternity session, and I will also have the pleasure of photographing their brand new baby in a few weeks – I’ve had a string of newborn girls lately – and I’m so excited they are having a boy – watch for their newborn session to be posted next month! I really enjoy showing the relationship of a couple as part of a maternity session – some of my clients call this an ‘engagement-style’ maternity session – I love to capture the emotions they are feeling right at this very unique moment in their lives together…
