Inspired Light and pregnancy

“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”

Baby Bump : Maternity Photography

featured baby, Maternity & Newborn

Pregnancy. A powerful, magical time for your body to create new life. If you are the one actually experiencing it you may often feel otherwise – the nausea, exhaustion that is so intense you can barely walk across the room, and your precious body morphing into something that you hope will go as planned. For me, I’m pregnant right now and the “glow” feels more like a bus ran over me. However, every time I look in the mirror at my growing belly or feel the baby I can’t describe the happiness. Its so crazy to feel that you can love a person that you have never met. It’s so important for me to document this process (even though I don’t really feel like getting anywhere in front of a camera!) Over the next few weeks I have a few sessions that I booked for myself to make sure I can share this journey. I’m doing one at 20 weeks, and two more closer to my due date. Yes, thats lots of maternity and I think its important to share because I’ve heard so many moms recently say “maternity is just not worth it,” “I feel terrible, why would I take photos of that,” etc, etc.

In the meantime, it is very important for me to start pulling images from the archives that have never been seen. For years I’ve focused on lots of intimate work but very rarely actually share it online. If you didn’t\dont know I actually shoot a lot of  editorial maternity photography. Thank you so much to my clients that are willing to share their images with the world now, because I don’t want this kind of natural baby beauty to go hidden any longer. I absolutely LOVE this type of photography and need to start doing more of it and sharing it! If the photo above looks like your cup of tea-shoot me a message! Lets document your bump in all of its naked, beautiful glory. In my opinion clothes cover the bump soooo much and you can’t really appreciate it. Theres something so soft and special about a mama and her baby in the raw. natural. real.

Family Portrait in the Park

Family, Featured Family, Kids

The family portrait. It’s something we are all familiar with, and most do not look forward to. Visions of kids running and crying, refusing to cooperate, and lots of time spent standing around waiting for it to be over. As a photographer you don’t want this to be the common reaction (obviously). I do take pride in my ability to rock out large family groups at weddings in no time and keep everyone happy. It took lots of weddings and many different routines to figure out the magic trick to families.

This has been a very busy year for me! I booked more weddings than ever, we are building a house, getting married, and opening two new businesses. I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about where I want my work to go and whats important to me, our family, and how I want to spend my time. Significance has always been a priority and something I am constantly striving for. I want to take images that matter! The closer I get to creating my own family the more I realize how important time is and how precious each moment is with your loved ones. Getting back to my roots, I love images with a film grain. I started out in a darkroom and spent time working with each image-by hand in the dark. The time consuming (and expensive) process was challenging, fun, and contributed to a lot of creativity in my work. I’m blessed that my clients are willing to take a chance and give me the freedom to create. “I trust you” is my absolute favorite thing to hear – its the creativity green light. Documenting moments is an intimate process that doesn’t come easy to everyone. It can be nerve racking, intimidating, and seem uncomfortable, which is why I recommend letting go and letting your photographer take the reigns to tell your story.

I was so happy to meet Molly and Max before their big day to catch a few photos and meet baby Jane. Their wedding at The Monastery was beautiful and ended with a bash on the dance floor. I will post sneaks soon!

Tween Fashion Photo Party : OTR

Family, Featured Family

When you’re 12, into fashion, and your friends I’m not sure there could be a cooler birthday option than a Tween Fashion Photo Party in OTR. These girls blew me away from the moment they stepped foot in my studio. All very confident, excited and ready to WERK. They showed me that I am now old and need to update my social media knowledge. haha. It was so fun to get to hang with them and see all of their personalities come to light in front of the camera. Oh to be 12\13.

All I had to say was “model pose” – they nailed it.

The girls had a blast creating their own snaps in my studio. They had tons of their own ideas – this was not their first day in front of the camera!

Quite possibly the coolest mom ever. Hair blowouts, dinner in OTR, and a cool photoshoot, followed by ice-cream #perfectday

Kristin + Conan’s Maternity Photography Session : Ault Park

Family, Maternity & Newborn

I wanted to share this sneak from Kristin + Conan’s maternity photography session in Ault Park this week. They are so sweet with each other and this image is a great representation of their caring sides. These two couldn’t be cuter! I can’t wait to meet their little girl soon. Images like this are my favorite way to photograph maternity. Sweet moments in time that only happen once.

Puppy Pictures : Cincinnati Pet Portraits

Guess who stopped by to visit today….the cutest baby ever with his mom, my good friend Ashley. To be completely honest I haven’t picked up a camera in quite some time, because I’ve been so busy editing. It was so refreshing to get back in the game!! This is my first new collection of the year 🙂
