So I went with a fellow Newborn/Maternity photographer from here to a Maternity Photographers Retreat and training weekend in Logan, Ohio. Ashly Collins from Ashly Collins Photograhy organized the training and her work is beautiful. I met up with eight other photographers from around the US. We stayed at a place called Crockett’s Run in Hocking Hills all together in one cabin. All of the photos were taken on the property. There is a river that runs outside that most of the photos were taken next to but there are also tents you can stay in which is where the only indoor session was taken. There were hundreds of photos but I wanted to show one of each model or model and husband that I loved. It ended up being many more photos than I normally share on a blog post but I didn’t want to leave any of these beautiful moms out!
It rained almost the entire trip but I bagged up my camera and shot for hours on that Saturday. I was drenched but it was worth it! I even got a shot of a couple in the rain that I LOVE! I was way out of my element since I do most of my maternity sessions in the studio but this was a lot of fun stepping out of my comfort zone and learning new ways to make the mommas feel special.
This first photo is one of all the moms to be. Aren’t they beautiful and look at these dresses! I have since ordered a few more dresses for my collection for moms to have to pick from when they come. These are all Sew Trendy Dresses which are top of the line in the maternity dress field. I love being able to have everything a mom needs to wear and they don’t have to worry about buying something just to get pictures taken in. I want every mom to feel like a superstar!
