The Beauty of Pregnancy {Maternity Photography, Life Prints Portrait Design}

Posted on March 25, 2010. Filed under: Image Posts, Maternity Portraits |

I had this couple into the studio the day before Shannon’s due date.  We were experimenting with some different lighting scenario’s and I happened to look up and saw the way he was looking at her.  I knew I had to capture that moment… and this was the result.  Pregnancy, and love, truly are beautiful. 



(Just as a side note… she delivered the next day.  Whew, just in time!)

We’re still looking for some very special newborn babies and expectant mamas to be the faces of our studio!!

Posted on March 10, 2010. Filed under: Special Offers |

We got some great responses last month to our model search and we’ve been able to shoot some sessions with the cutest little babies around!  We still have a need for some pregnancy and newborn sessions though, so we’ve decided to continue our model search for a bit longer.

 With the start of the new year, we’ve got some fantastic new lighting techniques and all around great ideas that we need to perfect and get sample images of.  Because of this, it’s your lucky day if you’re chosen to be included as one of our models!

We still have two categories for which we are searching for models, but we’ve narrowed the search down a bit:

We need approximately 5 expectant moms who will be between 7-9 months pregnant at the time of the session. 

We also need 8 newborns, and our criteria for the newborn sessions are very narrow.  We will accept applications for newborns who will be under two weeks old at the time of the session, however, what we REALLY need are little ones who are under one week old.  Our preferred age is 4-5 days old. 

Have you ever seen images of newborn babies where the little one is all curled up in a ball sound asleep?  These little contortionists loose some of this flexibility after their first week, so our goal is work with them during this special time that they still sleep most of the time and are oh so flexible.  Then we add some special elements to the images to accentuate your little ones sweetness.  All of this is what adds to the magic of those amazing images we are able to provide to our clients. 

And we’d like you to be a part of creating these magical and touching newborn images for our website and other studio uses.

Once we find the expectant moms and babies that we feel will work best for the sessions we are planning, we will meet with each of them for a session planning meeting.  For the maternity sessions, we will be covering a range of styles both indoors and outdoors, as well as a variety of clothing options from fully clothed, to draping material to fully nude.  We reserve the right to conduct the session per our criteria, but those that apply can specify which types of sessions they would be willing to pose for. 

Here is what our model search participants will receive (at no charge!):

  • An on location portrait session
  • a $50 product credit to use towards purchasing prints from the session. As an added incentive for this model search, we will increase the product credit to $100 for our moms and dads who are able to get their newborn session completed before the baby is 7 days old.
  • a 20% discount off any purchases you may choose to make from the sessions.  (If you are chosen as one of our models, there is NO obligation to purchase any images from the sessions and there will be no pressure to do so.)

As an added bonus for our maternity models, they will be given first priority in having the opportunity to have their newborn photographed as one of our baby models.  In order to take advantage of this, the newborn session must be completed within 7 days of the baby’s birth.

We are looking forward to having a blast with all of you ladies and the little ones!  If you would like to apply to be one of our models and receive a free session, just email us at  In your email, please make the subject line “Model Search” and in the email include your name, telephone number, your due date or baby’s current age, and please tell us about why you would like us to considered you or your baby as one of our models.  We will contact you within 24 hours. 

We are looking for a wide variety of people, so please don’t hesitate to get a hold of us and apply.  We love working with pregnant women and babies… it’s what we specialize in!  Because of this, we promise you that this will be an amazing experience for you.

We’ll talk to you soon!

Lora & Sue

PS- If you know any other mamas and papas who might be interested in this opportunity… don’t be shy!  Spread the word  🙂
