I LOVE maternity sessions (have I mentioned that before??!!)Â And I love when clients let me take the reins and run with my creative (and sometimes off the wall!) ideas (especially when we go on location).Â Leah holds a special place in my heart because she is a Child Life Specialist, which is what I was for 10 years before starting my photography business.Â In case you don’t know what a Child Life Specilaist is (don’t worry- most people don’t..), we are the ones who help hospitalized children with the psychosocial aspects of hospitalization- through play and developmentally appropriate teachings.Â It is an extremely rewarding career and takes a special kind of person.Â My hat’s off to Leah!Â Anyway (sorry…I got off on a tangent..shocking I know!).Â We had a blast- and Leah let me “play” with some new ideas that I wanted to try.Â I love this image- so super sexy! We were not too sure what this graffiti said, but we would like to think it said “LOVE”.Â ha! Don’t mind me laying on the ground- I have a plan!Â And this was it!Â I know Leah was laughing at me, but I have been determined to master “sun flare” in some of my images.Â It actually takes alot of practice to get it right.Â I find myself walking around looking for light and light patterns all the time (I know- I need to get a life!).Â I saw this when I was going for a walk today and knew I had to bring Leah back to this spot.Â The light rocked!Â Love that sun,Â (I promise this was not something I did in post processing)…. And last but not least (actually, this is one of my favorites!).Â I have an obsession with cool chairs.Â So when I saw this ricketedy old thing in an alley, I had to use it!Â Never mind the splinters in Leah’s backside! CONGRATS Leah (and Ricky)!Â Cannot wait to meet Jocelyn!Â Thanks for letting me capture this special time for you!
