Maternity photos with a Vegas twist

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Last year when I went to Vegas to attend WPPI, I was standing in line waiting for Jerry Ghionis’ platform class and started talking to the girl in front of me. What a small world it was; she was from Calgary! I hadn’t seen Stephanie since meeting her then, but we agreed we’d definitely get together in Vegas again this year (don’t worry, I’ll have a post coming about that soon enough!).

This year found her with a baby in her belly, so we decided some Vegas maternity photos were in order! The Vegas strip has a million fantastic photo locations that always get the gears in my head going, but I just couldn’t make it past the hallway to the convention center at MGM! The colorful walls called to me…

Stephanie was willing to strip down in front of all the other photographers walking by, and it was fun stopping for everyone who was chimping the back of my camera to see what we were up to! It was so much fun and challenging working in a totally different environment for maternity photos; usually I prefer to use a lot of natural light and give the photos more of a soft feel, but if you’ve been in any of the casinos in Vegas, you know they are very dark and very dramatic! My mom acted as my lighting assistant with my single strobe (I wanted to travel light – no pun intended), which made the shoot much easier, seeing as how I didn’t have a light stand with me ;)

Check out what a cutie Steph is… (more…)

Maternity photos with Amy and her family

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

This afternoon I met such a sweet family! Amy, Tarek, little Zak, and big fuzzy Captain are expecting baby #2 next month and invited me over to take photos of their family just before the new addition comes. Amy and Tarek are a darling couple, Zak is adorable and full of energy, and of course I loved Captain because I loooooove big dogs! Needless to say, I had a great time! (more…)

Cara’s Maternity Session

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

I love following up with past wedding couples of mine, so I was excited to hear Cara and Kurt are expecting their first baby within the next month! I had a great time doing this maternity session today, and I hope I didn’t torture Kurt too much. Their dog Tigger must have remembered being in their wedding photos because he made a point of trying to pose in some of these (their cat couldn’t have cared less though).

Mia’s Maternity Photos

Friday, August 28th, 2009

I hadn’t seen Mia since just after her little guy Braxton was born, so it was a pleasure to join her, James, and Brax to capture their maternity photos before their second child comes. Mia is and will continue to be one hot mama! We made a studio out of their basement and I had a such a great time with them (especially tricking Braxton into the photos!) :)

Laura, Colin, Nate, and soon another!

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Laura is expecting baby number two soon, so today we did her maternity photos with the rest of the family! I had a great time shooting this laid back, fun family, and am so impressed at little Nate’s modeling skills! (All this after he announced he wasn’t going to be in any photos just before I got there.)

I’m so happy I got to do this shot… I’ve been wanting to do it for a while!

Lindsey & Jeremy’s Maternity Photos

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Lindsey and Jeremy are expecting their first baby, and wanted to get some photos done before the baby is scheduled to arrive in just under a few weeks. They are such a cute couple, not to mention really fun… we threw in quite a few silly shots (which I am not posting here, as I don’t know how Jeremy feels about having his belly on the internet), and made sure to include their first “baby” Marley the dog in a couple photos.
