Eugene, Oregon maternity photographer: Leslie


I had so much fun doing this maternity photography session with Leslie! She came to my Eugene, Oregon photography studio a few days after Valentine’s to record this exciting time in preparation for baby’s arrival. This was a session of firsts for me, and I’m so glad Leslie was willing to be my first client to try out several of my new maternity options.

Firsts: New Maternity Clothing Options

Leslie was the first to wear several of my new clothing options. As a maternity photographer, I’m always on the lookout for beautiful gowns and outfits in a variety of different styles. I’d recently added several new pieces to my collection, and Leslie and I had a great time playing around with some different looks. She rocked every single one of them!

Firsts: New Lighting Techniques

One of the many things I love about being a photographer is that I never stop learning. There are always new things to try out, to perfect, and just to experiment with. Something that I’ve been focusing on recently is learning some new lighting techniques. Any photographer worth their salt knows the importance of lighting, and I’ve really been enjoying trying out some new methods. I used several of the techniques I’ve been mastering in Leslie’s maternity photography session, and I really love the look we were able to achieve.

Firsts: Professional Hair and Makeup

I recently decided to start offering professional hair and makeup as an option with my full maternity photo sessions. I’m so excited about this! Honestly, all of my clients are so gorgeous and I love bringing that natural beauty out with my camera. I look at professional hair and makeup services as a way to help my clients recognize the beauty in themselves and really feel comfortable and confident during their session. Leslie is a gorgeous mom-to-be and looked absolutely stunning!
