Redwoods Maternity Photography

"She was one of the rare ones, so effortlessly herself, and the world loved her for it." ~Atticus

A walk in the Redwood Forest with this beautiful momma to be was absolutely magical. I was just about to post a model call for maternity when I stumbled upon Maya...30 weeks along and glowing. More to this story to make it perfection is that just not long ago I had photographed her wedding in the Redwoods as well. 

I chose to keep a more natural vibe on these...neutrals and softer greens with lots of natural light falling through the canopy.

Southern Oregon Vineyard Maternity Photography

Several years ago I received a message from sweet Aaliyah. She was inquiring about my senior rep program which I was no longer doing at the time. However there was just this magic draw about her that made me want to not only get to know her but capture her raw natural beauty. There are some people who just glow from the inside out I think and she was one of them. She was one of the most incredible representatives I've ever had.

Fast forward to this year and she became the most beautiful momma to be. I approached her for a personal project that I would style her for a maternity session and take a few photos at a local vineyard in a greenhouse they had there knowing it would work rain or shine. I was actually going for a more dark moody feel but instead we were blessed with sunny skies, fields of flowers and blooms on pear trees. We were able to relax first on Schmidt Vineyards patio and enjoy refreshments prior. Shooting this was only about a 15 or 20 minute window of time. The more I grow in photography over the years, and the more I go in with a vision, the less time I find necessary for accomplishing lens magic.
