As a photographer in the Washington DC area, it’s no surprise that being able to express myself creatively is an outlet for me and my energy. When I get the chance to be super creative for shoots, it doesn’t feel like work at all. Honestly, I really love to be able to think about the colors, designs, shapes, and feelings I want to evoke with my images. It gets me really excited to pick up my camera – and a little anxious too, because I always want my clients to love whatever we’ve created in the end. I truly believe it’s important to do what helps restore your soul – creative rest, included. That’s why I’m SO excited to be sharing Allison’s spring maternity portraits with you today. I loved designing this session for her and her family!
When Allison reached out to me about her spring maternity portraits, she wanted to keep things super simple. Which I totally understand. As we got talking, I began to get a design in my head that had flowers, a couch, and a gorgeous colored maternity gown. I shared my ideas with Allison and she wasn’t too sure. She felt like it was going to be too much! But, I asked if she wanted to try – it’s my area of expertise after all – and she agreed. With the green light, I got to work finalizing the designs for her beautiful creative maternity portraits.
As the day of the shoot arrived, I was SO excited to see what she had to say. And she loved it. I’m so happy that I was able to capture these stunning creative spring maternity portraits with a beautiful floral arbor for her and her family. Thank you Allison, for trusting me – both to capture your special moments and to create something beautiful. If you’re expecting this year and want to have your own creative and unique maternity session, let’s talk!
