Another beautiful maternity and family session at my favorite park! This family was so fun and easy to work with, and mama chose the perfect gown to showcase her beautiful baby bump! I have TONS of gorgeous maternity gowns for client use (check some of them out here: http://junebugphotography.org/maternity-gowns-in-studio-june-bug-photography-mill-creek-maternity-photographer/ )

I’ve been meaning to do this post FOREVER…but I’ve been dreading photographing all the gowns I have in studio. There are just SO MANY, and they just don’t look as good on the hanger. I had planned on having Ana (my studio buddy) model all of our gowns..but she had her baby 3 weeks early!

Guess what?! I totally lucked out with this mama!! She came in a modeled almost ALL MY DRESSES FOR ME!! and she totally rocked it!! We were literally flying through all the different dresses, and laughing and having a blast. I am so happy she was up for it, because these dresses look so much better on HER than the would have on a hanger for a photo!!

Feel free to look through some of my favorite dresses available for client use! I have gowns of all sizes, styles, and colors. If you have a maternity session coming up, make note of a few dresses you might like to wear!!

I love the idea of having an extensive wardrobe available for my clients. Maternity photos are such an important milestone…but it is also a size/time of life that is very short lived. Maternity dresses like these can be VERY expensive, and it just seems silly for clients to purchase a gown to only use once.

newborn birth announcementI met mom and dad just a few short months ago for their maternity session. I knew within minutes that I was going to just LOVE this family. They are so sweet, loving, and clearly in love with their baby boy.

This little man LOVES to snuggle. SO much in fact, that he gets a bit grumpy when we tried to lay him down. Don’t worry, I won. Lots of snuggles, shushing, and sneaky maneuvers and he rocked every set up!

I love that he smiled for the family shot. of course he did. He got to snuggle his mama!

I want to wish Ana Nikic of AnaBella PhotographyBella Photography a HUGE congratulations!! She is simply the most chill mama, and her new baby girl Mia takes after her mama.
Ms. Mia was so good to us, like. SO GOOD. I went a little overboard planning this special little ladies session, and guess what? I USED COLOR?! Ana LOVES bright, beautiful colors…so I stepped outside my comfort zones (aka, varying shades of cream, brown, and gray) and used so much color. and tutus. and a crown. I know, who am i?!

No worries, though. I snuck in a few neutral set ups..and mama loves those too. Its funny to see the two styles side by side. Ana’s signature is bright, bold, gorgeous colors. Me, not so much. I love neutrals. We make a good team!

This little lady totally rocked her session! I had so much fun with her, and she braved the chilly fall air..in nothing but a tutu! :) She was a total trooper, and was all smiles and full of cuteness!

I just love sessions with babies who are sitting, but not yet walking/crawling! They are so easy, and such an adorable age! Mom, dad, baby and the family dog are all adorable, and I had so much fun working with them!

Don’t you just love the pumpkins? She thought they were AWESOME. Here are a few of my favorites from her session

In an effort to spend more time with my own family, I’ve decided to limit the number of weekend days I work…which is super difficult, because fall/winter is definitely BUSY SEASON for photographers! In order to fit in all of my wonderful clients, I ran a special family mini session day…and it was a total blast! I ended up photographing 11 different families, and it was so fun to see so many of my favorite families. I was definitely tired at the end of the day, but it was such a great day!!

Here are some of my favorites!

This little lady is homeschooled, and comes to me each year for an updated school photo. I have a special place in my heart for homeschooling families, as I worked for many years at a Homeschool Resource Center.

She is simply the sweetest, and has the BEST IDEAS. She spotted my unicorn headband as soon as she walked in the door, and I promised her that she would get a chance to wear it. We got through the “traditional” poses, and then she totally rocked the unicorn headband. Like, ROCKED IT.

I couldn’t let the session end without getting little brother in front of the camera, and the two of them are just the sweetest together. I love working with such happy, loving, fun families. Love it!
