I was so excited to see this beautiful mama and her family back in the studio again for another round of maternity photos! Is a photographer supposed to have favorite clients? I don’t know, but Torie and Andrew have been with my photography business since the beginning and I absolutely love them. I first did their engagement session (ten years ago now—can’t even believe it!) and also did their maternity photos when Torie was pregnant with Chloe. They are just the sweetest.
It was so fun to see how much Chloe has grown! It’s always a treat when my newborn clients come back to see me. She is such a cutie and I have a feeling she’s going to be a fantastic big sister!
During their first maternity session, Torie brought her own purple gown (which she looks gorgeous in, btw!) She gifted the maternity gown to me after her session and it has been worn by so many of my clients. Torie chose to wear it again for this maternity session and then also brought in a new rainbow dress to signify this little one being a rainbow baby for her and Drew. After this session she gifted me the rainbow dress as well. (Told you she was the sweetest person!) I think that’s such a lovely gesture. Maternity gowns (especially the fancy ones used for pregnancy photos) tend to get very little use by just one person. I love that Torie decided to pass those dresses on for other expecting mothers to enjoy and feel beautiful in!
We also used my sheer beaded gown for some beautiful low-key photos, and I absolutely love how they turned out! Torie has such pretty coloring and looks great in everything.
Such a pleasure to do this maternity photography session for one of my favorite families! I feel so lucky to be part of capturing memories for families throughout Oregon. If you’re expecting, celebrating a special occasion in your life, or want some just-because photos of you and your family, I hope you’ll reach out. I’d love to get to know you!
