Model Search: Maternity and baby portraits

Posted on January 31, 2010. Filed under: Articles |

Hey folks!  We are so excited about the model search we are running during the month of February. 

If you read our entry from last Sunday, then you already know that we are now specializing in maternity photography and baby photography.  Because of this, we have been working on some fantastic new ideas for our sessions, but we need some mamas and babies to work our magic on! 

Do you, or somebody you know, want to be featured in our studios marketing campaigns!  This is a perect opportunity to have your maternity portraits done or to capture your baby in a beautiful piece of artwork for your home or office.  The best part is… your session is complimentary and you get an 11×14 fine art print as well!  That’s a $210 value and you will receive all of the usual time, attention and gorgeous images that we give every client.

So we’re putting out the call.  Email us at with your name, telephone #, if you are expecting we need your due date and if you have a little one then we need their age, and then write a little bit about why you would like to be included as one of our models. 

To read a bit more about the model search, take a peak here…

And don’t forget to pass this on to all of your friends, mothers groups, etc.  We want to hear from everybody and include a diverse group of mamas and babies in the images for our marketing campaigns.

Thanks gang!  And remember… Life truly is Beautiful!

Specializing… Maternity and baby photography

Posted on January 25, 2010. Filed under: Articles |

Well, with the start of the new year has come changes for me personally as well as for the business.  One of the things that I’ve discovered over the past year or so is that I am absolutely, completely in love with maternity and baby photography.  The thing is, I already knew that.  But after making the move to Portland almost a year and half ago, I went into a frame of mind that because I was starting my business over, I somehow had to start over in terms of taking whatever types of sessions came my way.  In doing that, I began to move away from what I am truly passionate about and I started to lose some of my motivation and creativity.

But that’s the fantastic thing about life… we always have the opportunity to change and grow.  I am rediscovering my love of photography as I begin to get back to the roots of what I love to do.  I am truly passionate about shooting sessions with expectant moms and the sweet little babies with their baby smell and tiny fingers and toes.  The intimacy of those types of sessions drive my passion and creativity. 

Because of that, we’ve decided to bring the studio back to it’s roots as well by specializing in maternity and baby portraits.  That doesn’t mean that we won’t do family sessions with our little clients moms, dads, siblings, dogs…whoever!   It just means we’re going to be focusing on the start of these new little people’s lives, and I’m going to be throwing my heart and soul into it which means all of you are going to get the best of me!

I so look forward to this new year with all that it brings.  I am going to be posting a new article here on the blog every Sunday night with lots of sneak peaks from sessions throughout the week. 

So thanks for following us and I’ll talk to you soon!
