newport,va maternity session: glam meets boho

beth is a wonderful mix of glamor, sparkle, and bohemian when it comes to style for her maternity session. she had just enough time for a visit to the studio before returning to her home in macedonia.  she was still early in her pregnancy but this would be the last time she would be visiting us before the baby came.  i personally styled her maternity session to match her personality.

for beth, the vision i had included dried yellow roses in her loosely braided hair. she reminded me that this is exactly how she wears her hair at home!  her one request was to have a photo to enlarge as a framed print for the baby’s room.  the movie, family stone, is a favorite of hers and she loved the maternity photo of the mom in the movie.  this idea inspired us to photograph the first image of  beth in front of the large window.  during her session, we laughed, talked, cried, renewed our friendship,  and solved all the world’s problems in an hour!

a former labor and delivery nurse of 25 years, I am now working as a hospital/home birth documentary photographer in southwest Virginia and loving it.  being back in the birthing room feels like coming home.  quiet, calm, and confident in the birthing room, I can anticipate the events and therefore, I am an excellent choice for photographing the birth of your baby.

    LOVE that first image, and the dress/flowers in the second are beautiful. I have to ask, which of these images did she decide to hang in the baby's room?
