Although I don’t really advertise myself as a ‘portrait photographer’ anymore, every now and then a project comes around that I can’t refuse.
Plus I totally miss photo editing.Â Something about unwinding after a long day with a gorgeous image in front of me awaiting my artistic transformation is super relaxing. Ahhhh…
(Pssst….want to learn how relaxing this can be firsthand? I’m teaching a free week long photo editing lesson online starting August 12th — learn more and/or register HERE)
This project was one of those ‘can’t refuse it’ type of deals.
Since ‘going pro’ with my photography I’ve had a dream of being part of a birth and getting to document it. My day job held me back from making this dream come true for quite some time.
Then, the mama-to-be here, who I shared an office with all last school year, found out she was pregnant with her first baby the day she took my DC/MD/VA Momtographie Class back in February. With the decision to quit my job this summer also came the decision to make this personal project of mine come true.
Thank you friend for inviting me in for what will surely be a special day in your life.
You two are absolutely glowing in these images and I can’t wait to meet your daughter with you in a few short weeks! xo.
