LIttle Rock Maternity Portraits

Little Rock Maternity Pictures – Little Rock Photographers

Some of my favorite shoots to photograph are maternity sessions. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who is glowing with life. Being a mother myself, I know just how special  this time is for a woman. It's also a time when most of women don't feel like their usual selves. As the days on the calendar inch closer to the due date, our feet and ankles begin to swell, backs begin to ache and fatigue sets in. This is the perfect time for an expectant mommy to spend some time feeling pampered and beautiful. Recently, I had the pleasure of documenting Julie's pregnancy. As a beauty and fashion blogger (check out her fab blog iHeartHeels here!), Julie wanted to look amazing and on-trend for her portraits, so we teamed up with Face Your Day Studios for styling consultation, hair and makeup. I love that we were able to capture several distinct looks for her that showcase Julie's personality and style. Here are a few of my favorites from her session: little rock maternity pictures ...

She wanted to document the cutting of their wedding cake and take some portraits to document their first year. I love this idea!! Here are a few of my favorite shots from their gorgeous session. These two couldn't be any cuter! ...

Little Rock Portrait Photographer – The Before and After

One of my favorite parts about shooting glamour and boudoir sessions are the 'before and afters.' I love seeing how people react when they flip through one of my before and after albums in the studio, and I love hearing clients tell friends about how they should check out my website to see the makeovers. The thing I don't love hearing is that many people assume that my work is VERY photoshopped because the transformation is, so, well, transformative. The truth is that most of the magic that happens at my studio is created in the makeup chair and right in front of my lens. Let me explain. For starters, almost none of my clients walk around looking like their 'before' shot. Who goes to the office on a Tuesday with no makeup, wearing sweat pants with their hair pulled back in a ponytail? No one. Second, who has their hair and makeup professionally done before work on a Thursday? No one. Well, unless you're a Kardashian. BUT that's how my clients arrive and leave my studio, and that's how they're photographed, and that's what you see in my before and afters. Before I begin every session, the stylist and I talk...

Little Rock Photographers – Little Rock Portrait Photography

Every girl, young or grown, needs a gorgeous photo of her mother. Moms, we're always behind the camera taking photos of our little ones, or dodging the lens because we aren't happy with how we look. Remember that you need to exist in photos for your children, no matter what. When they look back at what you've documented of their lives through photographs, you need to be part of those memories, too. Spending an afternoon getting pampered to create a gorgeous photograph of yourself may seem frivolous or indulgent to you, but you know what? For all of those PB&Js and carrot sticks prepared, those hundreds of loads of laundry, for picking up toys, hours of  homework, wiping away tears and kissing boo-boos, for cheering in the stands and watching proudly at graduation, YOU deserve to treat yourself and your kids deserve to have a beautiful photograph of you. They will cherish it forever, I promise. ...
