As a primarily natural light photographer I've been nervous to introduce strobes into my work and even as I was using them in other portrait work I hadn't tried the look with maternity yet, then I took a class from the best studio maternity photographer in the world, Lola Melani, and I had so many new things to try.  I could not be more in love with the new looks I'm able to achieve by adding strobes and silks into my maternity work. I could just photograph maternity like this all day every day and be a very happy woman.  

When Lauren told me she used to be a professional ballerina my heart nearly leaped through my chest. My two favorite things dance and maternity in one package!!  Lauren you are one seriously beautiful and talented mamma and it was such a joy to capture this moment in life for you.
