Since I’ve been on maternity leave, I haven’t shot as much as I would normally, and it’s starting to really tear me apart. I miss my camera. I miss the thrill of getting the shot. I miss how giddy I get when everything is going just as I imagine. I miss…photography.
Don’t get me wrong, I love – love – this little babe of mine more than words can say, I just need to get out and be creative and let my juices fly!
So, I did. And I am loving every single bit of this session! The hike into Snow Canyon Park was a bit hot (note to self: scope out the location before dragging the model along!), but it was worth it in the end. Miss Nikki is a natural in front of the camera. And her eyes – hello! Her make up was done by the fabulous MaskCara and was absolutely flawless, even after a 30 minute hike in the hot sun! And that bouquet…ohhh…that bouquet! Jocelyn’s Floral knocked it out of the park with this one! The dress (which is actually my maternity dress! The fabric is so lovely and stretchy, that it even fits Nikki’s tiny body.) is from Sew Trendy Accessories.
