Motherhood is beautiful

Motherhood is beautiful and we feel so privileged to get to witness the progress from pregnancy through the first days of life with baby. We see moms at all stages of life, first time, fifth time and every time in between, and it is always so beautiful and such a gift. We often see mothers while pregnant (many moms also call us from the delivery room to book their appointment!) It is extra special when we get to photograph mom’s maternity images and then newborn and family photos after birth.

Abby came to us for maternity and newborn photos. Her maternity session is so beautiful, she was truly one of the most gorgeous pregnant women we’ve seen. To see her then, glowing and anticipating the most wonderful gift, to now when she finally has her sweet little baby girl in her arms, it’s just priceless and full of miracle moments. It’s why we do what we do. Abby, motherhood suits you perfectly!

Savannah at 1 Year

Oh how we love our Bijou Baby Planners! We feel so spoiled, actually, to be able to see them several times through their first year of life. It’s special, ever-changing, entertaining, and so incredibly fleeting. When we see baby at 1 year, and think back to what they were like at just a few days old, well, we really can’t believe we are so lucky to have this gig. We get to know them, we watch them grow, we see their personalities sprout, and hopefully, we see mom and dad come in at their last session bit more rested than they were at the very beginning.

Savannah, now one year old, visited us for the first time as a newborn at just 10 days old. Her newborn session was beautiful and all about her very beginning as a winter baby — cozy and timeless! At 6 months she was full of chunky happiness and sweet giggles. Now, at one year, Savannah is full of personality and feisty, but oh so sweet. Mom chose to order the image of her standing atop a chair as a huge wall canvas and we couldn’t be happier with that choice! An authentic, iconic image of little Savannah that will remind mom and dad of exactly who she was at this stage.

And the cake smash? Well someday we bet you’ll learn to love cake Savannah.

It’s Mommy Mingle Time!

We love our community of mommies. We spend a lot of time talking with, supporting, and of course, photographing mothers and their babies in Bend, Oregon. We also love getting involved with the community outside of the studio. Mommy Mingle was an idea born out of the hope to provide moms with a fun, social gathering where we could all mix and mingle, and also learn about pregnancy and parenting resources in the area. Four years later, here we are, getting ready for the fourth annual Mommy Mingle and we are so excited to once again help plan and support this awesome community event!

A large draw to the event is the raffle, an amazing collection of prizes that mommies go crazy for and the best part? It supports a local nonprofit, Family Access Network (F.A.N.) F.A.N. advocates link Central Oregon children and their families to critical basic need services with the goal of keeping children healthy and in school. Incredibly important work for our local families that need it. Together with our partner, Baby Phases (a beautiful local shop carrying all your baby needs including furniture, gear, cloth diapering, clothing, toys, & gifts) we’re hoping to welcome more local mommies than ever before on May 20 (the Night Out Event & Raffle) and May 21 (the Shop for a Cause Event).

Just look at how mommies line up for this event! The first 50 through the door get an awesome goody bag, so there’s great reason to get there early.

Oh, and we’re so excited about this! Our raffle prize donation is a Jems Session. One lucky mom will win this  fun, life-style type session! Capturing your child and all their personality, it’s the perfect way to freeze time, just as they are. We can’t wait to see who goes home with this one! We’ll keep you updated.

Fun lifestyle children

Other event sponsors include: our very own Belinda and her design company BD Designs, Bend Nest Magazine, and Sarah Daily Media.

Beauty in the Waiting | Maternity Photos

Pregnancy is that time of waiting that for some lucky women, can be the most magical experience of their life. We know very few women who exude that joy and also, look this good pregnant. Abbey is even more beautiful on the inside than she is on the out. Shot in her 39th week, little Annika was born just a few days late but oh how gorgeous she is. We can’t wait to show more from this gorgeous maternity session!

Just think how happy baby will be to look back on these photos of mom and dad looking so excited for her arrival.

Maternity photography is a gift, and we love to photograph beautiful bellies.
