Hollis Maternity Session: Baby Makes 4

Love this artistic approach that Charlie & Violet Photography takes with maternity photography!  Not your typical maternity shoot!  I feel like this is going to change things in the maternity world, you watch!

This was such a beautiful session. Hollis and her husband brought along Ryder and he wanted nothing to do with it. Mom and Dad tried everything to get him involved, but nothing was working. The minute I suggested he jump on Dad’s back – it was all over. He was engaged and the family pictures really soared to new heights. I have gotten so many compliments on this session and its artistic approach. I am really proud of the work.

Gear Used:
D800 Nikon body, 50mm Nikon lens, Alien Bees 400, Large shoot-through umbrella.

A Few Days New

A precious newborn shoot from Forever Young Photography By Paige.  Love how she was able to get so many great natural poses out of their walk in the park.  The scenery makes me want to move to San Diego for sure! :)

FACES

Stuck in a rut when it comes to photographing your own kids (or nephews and nieces in this case)?  Then get all up in their face and tell them to do their worst!  I guarantee the result will be interesting at the very least :)

If you like what you end up with then take it a step further with this idea from Jane Ammon photography that we posted a while back.

 

Why?You can't see me.I'm tough.

What TRUE INSPIRATION is – Part 2

Today I have the honor and privilege to share a follow up to what has been (IMO) the most inspirational story ever featured on IMB!  Roughly 16 months ago we featured Leah Brady Photography on the blog in a post titled What TRUE INSPIRATION is.  It is a story about the Landefeld family and their daughter Scarlett Rose who was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy.  With a child of my own with special needs, I am sure that Annie and Ryan have faced a tremendously difficult path in caring for their daughter, which at times has probably felt impossible to continue on!  Yet their unconditional and beautiful love for Scarlett, as evidenced in these photos and video, is a true inspiration to all of us no matter what stage of life we are in right now.  It is a session that saved Leah Brady’s photography career over a year ago as she reminded us then – Love selflessly, unconditionally and like today really could be your last day with your child.
