Port Huron, MI Winter Maternity Photoshoot

Dramatic Red Dress Outdoor Couple Maternity Shoot

winter beauty photoshoot.jpg

   There are 2 ways you should show up for a portrait session-
1- As you are. But RAW. Don’t hide any part of yourself, be ready to release your true , natural self.
2- As a new side of yourself you’ve never seen before, experience yourself in a new way.
   For Syme and Ryan’s Maternity Shoot they opted for number 2. When we first talked on the phone Syme told me she wanted to go all out for her Maternity shoot so she was breaking loose and doing everything she would never do for this moment in her life. She hates winter, she’s not one for dressing up... so of course she opted for a Winter shoot, in the snow, and she was even going to wear a floral crown. 
   Fun fact about the first time Syme and Ryan met- Syme was wearing sweatpants and a Tupac shirt. My day was made when I heard that, as she’s standing in front of me, polar opposite, looking like an Iceland Snow Mermaid in this red dress that fits her perfectly and also screams a lil Jessica Rabbit! She’s this little thing with a beautiful, bold personality to make up for her short height. Ryan is more quiet and sweet, but the way he looks at her and the way she smiles at him lets you know- these two are the real deal.
   Our first meeting was hilarious, talking about how magical their shoot was going to be that all the forest animals would probably run out of their dens to circle around her like this woodland Goddess, which, yes, she’s not that big into nature, but if that happened, she said she wouldn’t complain. We got a bit carried away.
   So, of course, the day of their shoot the snow melted. In a panic my creative brain kicked in and I knew I just needed something to mimic that whimsy feel. I found a hard pile of plowed snow in the corner of a parking lot and that’s what we used to create our magical snow mermaid shots. Sometimes you just have to trust the photographer’s vision.
   They went from spinning and dancing in the pine trees, to elegantly swaying with the wind on the icy beach shores, to lastly cuddling up on top of a snow pile.
   It was effortlessly stunning, it was true, it was love, and it was just in time bc that itty bitty, sweat pea of a baby came earlier than expected, less than a week after this!

Mother Nature and New Mother collide for Maternity Session

Summer Maternity shoot floating
on the water's surface

Natural Beauty at Sunset in Port Huron, MI

   Is ‘becoming a mother’ something you were born to do, or something you longed to do? It’s a natural, beautiful, inspiring process- creating an entire human with just your own body.
   Claudia was completely embracing this moment in her life and was ready to celebrate it as the organic and ethereal process it is through a photo shoot!
   While designing the shoot I wanted to work with nature and have it feel a bit fairy tale, a bit fashion, and a bit serene. Floating her on top of the water’s surface gave us that soft, maternal feeling. After that we embraced the raw aspect of pregnancy by showing off Claudia’s beautiful curves and enhancing her effortless beauty by stripping away all the unnecessary things and leaving her with just herself and that feeling of motherhood. This was also a graceful way to show off all of her artwork as well. Lastly we chased the sun as it set and celebrated soon to be baby Rory in a field of day lilies as the orange glow engulfed her.
   A few weeks later 1 became 2 and Claudia was officially a mother to a newborn.
   This experience was such an elegant way to end half this cycle... the end of pregnancyto enter into motherhood.

   11 years old and I knew no one where I had just moved to, except for the girl who rode her bike through my neighborhood. It seemed like every summer after that we would accidentally meet up and ride through the neighborhood at least once together.
   15 years old and we were at the beach every single day that summer. Almost every night we would have a sleep over. My bike ride friend had quickly became my best friend, and we went through all the typical growing up stuff together- boys, crappy boys, dances, bad dancing, shopping, the first time house party, driving, and laughing way into the night. She had this outer tough shell that was hilariously funny because when you actually knew her she would laugh at anything and was that friend you could count on, for years.
   16 years later and that same girl is now an amazing, caring mother of (soon to be) 2 kids and has a kind man by her side to take the adventure with. She’s one of those cool moms I love- she takes it seriously, but she knows life can’t be that serious, which is turning her son (and I’m sure her daughter too) into the smartest, most caring, truly unique little individual.
   She hopped the border when she got older and moved to Canada, so that gives me the perfect excuse to explore new areas when we go visit her! This time she took us to Springbank Park, which is huge, this is only a little slice of it, but what’s special about it is the last shot of our night was in the same exact spot where we shot the last shot of the night at their FIRST maternity session.

Spring Maternity Session on Lake Huron

A Spring Beach Session in Lexington, Michigan

A Maternity session with the whole family

meternity love in the summer photos.jpg

    Amazing how a bump can turn in to a baby. How you see a woman one minute and a mom the next.
   Kelly and Nick came to me later in Kelly’s pregnancy for a maternity session. It was Spring in Michigan, so we had to pretend like it was a warm day on the beach when in fact, it wasn’t! It was windy and cool. Fooled ya!
   Shortly after this Kelly gave birth to an adorable little boy and it took her a bit to get back in the studio to view everything. The change of the seasons had also changed them from a couple in to a family. I can’t imagine what it felt like for her to come back and see herself as this totally different person! She had evolved so much in just a few short weeks!
   Those changes are what makes up an amazing story- this is theirs:

Oh, and P.S. You HAVE to see how SWEET Kelly's FIRST baby is... her itty bitty pup. Take a look.
