One of my oldest and dearest friends flew me out to New Orleans for a beautiful maternity portrait shoot. We did more of a typical New Orleans shoot for her engagement pictures so we did something a little different for the maternity portraits. There’s a beautiful bird preserve near her home and it turned out even better than I imagined! Annabelle’s spirit animal is a unicorn so we had to do some unicorn pictures in there too! And of course I couldn’t forget the man behind the bump! Scroll down to the end! ;-)
Every woman needs gorgeous prints of herself. Every woman deserves to know that she is beautiful. Regardless of her age, height, weight, skin tone, skin texture, demeanor, dreams attained or unattained, EVERY WOMAN IS BEAUTIFUL.
Age should not be an issue. Weight should not be an issue. Self-worth should not be an issue. Money should not be an issue.
That's why I am offering a Name Your Price incentive. If you are thinking about portraits, but are unsure of which product you want and what you want to pay. Then you tell me. Tell me what you'd like to take home, and what you'd like to pay and we can come up with a pricing package just for you. I will work off of my basic price sheet and custom create a price point and product that you will treasure forever. Not sure where to start? All proposed portrait shoots should start at $500. This is my job, and kids and husbands are expensive. Yes, I have multiples of both. Hehehe... Just kidding. I put that out there to see if my hubby reads my blog. (He doesn't.)
Bottom line, you will never regret taking a morning for portraits of yourself. You will never regret spending money to immortalize yourself to your children and grandchildren. You will never regret having beautiful portraits of yourself on the days when you don't feel beautiful, on the days when you're sick, or alone, or feeling lost. You can always look at your portraits as a reference point, and see yourself as the beautiful, powerful, strong woman you are. And THAT is priceless.
I am an aunt! I've been an aunt for several months, but since I'm a slow blogger I'm just getting around to showing the portraits from my brother and his wife's maternity shoot. I LOVE my little nephew. He's the cutest thing ever! His little dimpled chin and his big, blue eyes. I know I can't do glamour portraits for a little boy, but I'm going to get photos of him soon! Here's a few of my favorites from the maternity shoot.
When my beautiful friend Amy got pregnant with her first baby I immediately signed up to do maternity portraits. We went to a nearby open space, and captured her beautiful tummy. Her husband Mark joined us for a few pictures. I love the couple portraits I captured of them! Amy radiated with all her mommy beauty, and took gorgeous pictures. Here are a few of my favorites.
