Floral Bath//Arizona Maternity Session

The Inspiration

After my own pregnancy, my view on maternity sessions shifted. There is nothing quite like the sensation of growing an entire life inside of your own body. Watching the way that little life pushes out against your belly completely reshaping it to be the perfect home in which to grow for 9 months, made me so obsessed with the curves of pregnancy. I had seen milk bath images floating around a couple of years ago and the more I mulled over the concept, the more perfect it felt for capturing the silhouette of a pregnant woman.

When I heard Christina was expecting her second little girl I was thrilled. She reminds me of my favorite Disney princess, Cinderella in the way she happily approaches the world and loves on the animals around her. I can just picture her singing to birds on her way to work. In addition, Cinderella blue looks stunning on her and I knew a blue floral milk bath would be the perfect compliment to her color.

The Session

Spring was filled with stunning pregnant mommies and I loved every second of it. This Floral bath session was one of my favorites (a close tie with our southwest inspired session found here). Christina has become a dear friend over the last 2 years of photographing her daughter, an element that added to the fun and excitement of trying out this new concept. She is stunning and I was thrilled that these images made her feel beautiful.

The Review

“These turned out so much more flattering and amazing than I could have ever imagined!  I’m planning to buy the gallery as soon as I can... obviously. Thank you so much for these!!!   I’m so excited!!!”

Introducing Spokesmodel Lexy//Arizona Child Photographer

THE INSPIRATION

When Lexy’s mom submitted for our spokesmodel program she had this to say about her daughter.

“My daughter is 11 years old, she loves art and crafts, drawing, and choreographing. She is a animal lover. Music is therapeutic for her and she loves posing for the camera. She is a Brave Princess Warrior….. She fights daily against Rare Chronic Disorders that never take her smile away.”

We were inspired by the positive and encouraging way Lexy’s mom spoke about her despite the daily obstacles she faces. Of course, because she mentioned animals, we had to ask about doing her session with our friends over at, Soaring Dreams Ranch, LLC. We feel these gentle giants always bring out the best in us and the kids we work with and we wanted Lexi’s session to be one to remember.

THE SESSION

Soaring Dreams Ranch agreed to making the session memorable and offered to trailer out the ever trusty Pascal to the desert for this session. The session happened at the start of wildflower season and we were excited to capture not only the first buds of the season but a stunning sunset.

A horse’s intuition is amazing. At each session with the ranch’s horses I am blown away by how they react and interact with each child on a different and very personal level. Pascal, sensing Lexy’s kind heart, kept turning around to check on her and hug her with his head. The images these two created together blew me away.
