I am very fortunate to have clients that trust me completely to make images for them. When Jim and Alison asked me to come up to Edwards, just outside of Vail, CO, for their Colorado Maternity Session, I was thrilled. I wanted to photograph some quiet moments shared between the them before their family of 4 became a family of 5. So many mammas hesitate to document this season of life because they didn't do it for their first child, they don't feel beautiful or they fear they will be uncomfortable in front of the camera. I say, do not hesitate to have these images made. They will be the images you and your children to look back at a later time in life. I create classic and intimate images of motherhood for this reason. I want you to appreciate your art decades down the road.
When making images of maternies, my approach is to create around what you are celebrating. You are bringing a new life into this world. I photograph your belly and the connection you, as the mother share with your child. There is also a heavy concentration on the connections your partner and/or the baby’s siblings all experience with each other. The moments in between moments, the milliseconds of time where nobody thinks anyone is paying attention, are what I love most to capture most.
What I love about outdoor Colorado Maternity Sessions is that you can have mountains, water or woods! We had it all for this couple's moody themed maternity session.
The Eagle River Preserve is the location we chose. It is close to their house and a place they frequented with their kids. When choosing a location, I alway suggest choosing a place that means something to you. You want a place that can help tell a bit of your story before your new season of life begins. Kind of a way to make time stand still and appreciate the adventures and quiet times shared by the parents before the beautiful chaos of a new little being in your life!
