Pregnant women sometimes have a hard time seeing their beauty, and sometimes I don’t even realize it. The maternity photography session, and the followup newborn photography session, with Lauren were so amazing. It wasn’t until I read her answers that I realized she felt anything but beautiful.

I would like to introduce a long-time client, and now friend, Michelle Seelig. Michelle and I met when she came to me pregnant with her twins for maternity photography. She has come back every year for family photography. I love working with her and her family. Every year I think, “how can I top what I did last year?” So I ask Michelle what she wants and she just
A new feature that we are starting here at JLP is Mama of the Month. These are women who are clients who I find inspiring and I hope you do too. I am using the question and answer format because it allows each mother to express themselves fully without being edited. For our first mama of the month I want to introduce you to Irene, an amazing woman who endured
I spent ten days at an artists’ retreat this past August and had a fantastic time. What came out of the program was a renewed sense of commitment to keep on progressing with my work with the pregnant female form.
