Powell Maternity Session

Sometimes in your life you meet someone and you don’t realize until years and years later that maybe they were put there to help you change your life. Laura and I went to high school together. We had some of the same friends and would run into each other here and there but it wasn’t until much later that we began to form a relationship outside of acquaintances. I was honored to photograph her first maternity session several years ago as well as her daughter’s newborn pictures. She contacted me again about doing a maternity session for their newest arrival, another girl too! Of course I was over the moon.

While I absolutely love documentary style sessions Laura enjoys the more formal genre of photographs and was unsure if she wanted to keep the beach theme that we did with her first born or do something completely different. We sat down one night for a consultation to talk about ideas and instead a wonderful thing happened. While we did briefly speak about photography we also ended up talking to each other about some of our own insecurities in life and what followed was each of us building each other up based on them. It was so wonderful to just sit down and talk to another woman, to build each other up, empowering each other based on our own different but similar fears and worries. I left that consultation feeling wonderful. I felt confident, I felt strong and empowered and I hope that she felt the same way.

A short time later she contacted me again and wasn’t sure if she was feeling the beach theme that they had done before and another amazing thing happened, something that has never really happened to me, she asked me what my absolute unhindered vision would be instead. Knowing she enjoyed the more formal type of photography I did of course keep that in mind but after I explained my idea she said she loved it. She was feeling inspired again and excited and so was I. Almost all of my clients trust me to some degree or another (or they wouldn’t come to me) but no one had ever essentially asked me, What do you see for us? and then trusted me completely to deliver it.

I don’t think she realized just how much asking me that question, me honestly answering that question, her trust and enthusiasm in her answer to that, her cooperation to make it happen and her response to the final images really helped my confidence and inner strength. And if she doesn’t realize, I just want to say thank you. She sent me this quote just the other day and it’s so true,

“When women support each other, incredible things happen.”

Let’s remember to support each other, we need it more than ever. <3

Here are just a few pictures from our session together. If you love the pictures, please leave a comment below and spread some love! And if you want to book, send us a message! The Powell’s chose the complete digital collection (a lifetime high resolution digital gallery of all final images and printing rights) for their custom session. We can create the perfect one for you too. XO
