Beatrix and Jony Maternity Studio Session! Indianapolis, Indiana

February 4, 2020

“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.” ~Anne Christian Buchanan

Meet Beatrix and Jony and the bump!  Beatrix found me on the instagram [shoutout to Insta and hashtags for working and bringing my work in front of those who connect with it!].

We met up at the studio in the Stutz building, and created some BEAUTIFUL maternity photos for them [and Beatrix invited her brother to be in a few as well].  She came with the casual sweater outfit, and then this beautiful pink maternity dress that highlighted the belly.  I am sort of obsessed with that dress.  Many of my maternity sessions up to this point, have been on location, so we wander around outside, which generally lends itself towards more casual everyday clothes than beautiful flowey dresses.  I think it fit PERFECTLY for the studio session, especially on the dark background, it made it feel so moody, and you can almost feel the anticipation of that new baby coming into the world.

I love my job.

Also guys, I think photography is so cool.  I mean, I KNOW, it’s my job and all, and I studied it, and whatever, BUT, the cool thing is, I speak a handful of words in Spanish, and they speak a handful of words in English [I actually think Beatrix is great at speaking English; WAY better than my Spanish; but still].  We had sort of a language barrier, BUT, that didn’t stop us from making BEAUTIFUL art for her last days pregnant!  I love that.  I love that my job reaches people that don’t speak the language I grew up knowing.  I love that photos are taken all over the world, and valued by people on every continent and many languages.  It’s so cool.

So here you go!  This beautiful family welcomed their baby not too long after our session, so I’m grateful we got it in before she arrived!

Beatrix, you are a delight.  I’m so glad you found me.  Eres encantador.  Jony, you clearly love Beatrix so much, and I’m sure you will love that baby just as much.  Claramente amas tanto a Beatrix, y estoy seguro de que amarás a ese bebé de la misma manera.

¡Me encantó trabajar con ustedes! ¡Gracias por contratarme! 

Felicidades por tu nuevo bebé.

Cheers!
