I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to capture a few images with a fellow photographer for his wife’s maternity session. Mike Arick extended an invitation to a few local photographers to come along and photograph his wife Erika’s maternity session and I had to jump at the chance. It happened to take place at one of my favorite spots in Orange County, and one I don’t get to travel to very often – and a few stylized pieces Mike and Erika put together to make it totally unique.
I mean, check out that headpiece and wrap!! <3
I knew this would be a great chance to not only meet a few people (who had just been virtual until now), but also be able to try out a few new poses with a beautiful couple. I’ve been a fan of Mike’s work for the past year or so, and can’t wait for the day when we can come to him for our own session.
Well, I am SO glad I was able to capture a few images from Mike & Erika’s session and have the chance to meet them both. I really enjoy shooting maternity sessions, and being able to capture the excitement of a new baby – and in this case – the first baby
I hope 2014 brings a few more of these wonderful mama-to-be sessions!!
