And Baby Makes 3

What a joy.  Literally a joy to photograph expectant parents Marianne and Ty.  Marianne contacted me to photograph her maternity portraits and she was full of ideas.  I love it when clients come into a session with specific poses or ideas, because that means they have studied the emotion behind a particular image.  The pose itself is not the defining factor of the image, it is what the pose conveys.  The emotion, the connection, the love.  And that is exactly what we were able to do together.  Marianne is a graphic designer, so she has the perfect eye to pick out images, composition and themes in order to present a particular final product.  And Ty is the owner of Makin it Reign, custom motorcycles and apparel.  Needless to say, these two are great at paying attention to detail.

There is no question Marianne and Ty have a deep seeded connection, but to be able to share those images with you, is well, a joy!  We spent about an hour together photographing their session in-studio, and with several outfit and wardrobe changes, we managed to capture some beautiful moments, all by paying attention to the details.  Stay tuned to the blog for the arrival of Baby Darien and their newborn session too!

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
