Capturing Maternity Magic!

Life seems to move by so fast, and it is so important to capture precious moments.When it comes to Maternity photo shoots, don’t trust just anyone to capture these precious times. We have so much experience with shooting Maternity. Not only is a Maternity photo shoot so important to document the exciting time waiting for your bundle of joy to arrive, but it also essential to have a Newborn photo shoot once your baby arrives. A beautiful and fun option with the newborn shoot is to include both parents.  These photos are so precious and will last a lifetime along with all of the memories that are made during this exciting time.

So much to talk about

First of all, I have been teaching constantly.  And I have schedule a lot of photography classes and workshops.  So now is the time to learn all my tricks.

I played around with water for a bunch of boudoir photographs.  Be sure to check them out.  Next summer I will be doing this again.

And maternity and newborn photography is always popular.  I love it when my maternity clients return for their newborn photos.  It lets me enjoy a bit of that special time in their life.

So much to tell

The big news is that I was part of a reality show this week.  I can’t reveal anything until it airs, sometime in December.

Pregnancy was the them as I have been very busy with some amazing future moms creating maternity portraits.    I love it when they bring in some new ideas.  Just when I think I’ve seen it all, they surprise me.

I was published again.  This time in a national fashion magazine called Eliza.  I did an underwater fashion shoot featuring retro swimwear.

Teaching and Shooting

The past 2 weeks have kept me so busy that I didn’t get a chance to post until now.

I’ve been doing a lot of teaching.  Introduction to photography, Boudoir photography workshop, Introduction to Photoshop and lots of private lessons.  To see what I am teaching next check out Orcatek Photography Workshops in Phoenix.

In between teaching I’ve had a lot of fun shooting.  One of my favorites was a maternity pin-up photography session.  As you can see, we had a lot of fun.
