This is something that we should address, just how amazing she did in the cold. It is no easy task, posing, barely clothed, barefoot, outside, in general.

Add in the bitingly cold winds, & it can be three times as hard.

I am here for it though, I even stripped down to a body suit of my own, because, if she was gonna be freezing, I can be freezing,

& I wanted to be ready to get in the water, if we so chose.

We started in the grasses, and worked through the winds, getting used to shooting and dealing with the weather.

Once I put the blanket down, she was getting used to the whole shindig.

I asked how she was feeling and she responded, with joking gestures and genuine smiles.

I knew it was cold, but she really did power through, looking beautiful, graceful and FIERCE.

I did mention, in case we got in the water.

I tested it with my toes, and it was too cold for me to feel comfortable, and balance and focus and direct, but this gorgeous Lady.

She walked right in and went out as far as she felt comfortable, & SHE. WAS. GLORIOUS !!!

The blue hour was perfection, her gown matched perfectly, her hair and make-up, taken care of by the talented and amazing Renee The Beauty Slayerrr & Desired Couture, House of Beauty, exquisitely matched the mood and tones.

I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect, except for maybe, a little less wind. 

 

BUT WAIT, THERE IS MORE !

 

She brought cowgirl boots yall! 

If you didn’t know, I am obsessed with cowgirl boots & I wanted to be able to utilize them,

with a cute pair of blue jean short shorts and one of my go-to creamy, lace, boho poncho’s that has never let me down.

Viva Las Vegas, BABY!

I just love a beautiful belly bump, & my most recent Las Vegas Maternity Session, PROVIDES

 

During our consultations, Mama Bear let me know that blue was the color she was leaning towards. I absolutely LOVE BLUES, oh yes, I love blue pops of color! I love Blue Skies, Blue Accents, Blue Wardrobe, it is simply, one of my favorite colors to work with.

She found the perfect gown online, and Mama Bear styled herself 100%.  She rocked the session, a la naturelle, with little to no make-up & hair styling. I am ALL about my clients, ahem MODELS, choosing the look that is right for them. Not everyone wants a lot of hair and make-up, & I absolutely understand and cater to each individual’s choice.

I knew I had to come in on a weekend, and given mama bear’s due date, we went with an earlier option during the month. There is a point in time, in a lot of women’s pregnancies, where everything is just, HARDER. Having gone through two pregnancies myself, I absolutely GET IT. I wanted their session to work best with their schedule, I knew it had to be short and sweet, but also, beautiful and a one of a kind experience.

Wardrobe, Check. Scheduling, Check. Location…Ok, this can be a hard one, because the Vegas Valley has so many options for landscapes. You have the Mountains, you have the Lakebeds, the Desert, the Lake itself! & that’s just outside…

 

Luckily, my clients knew what they wanted, and the location was quick and easy. Joshua Trees, Mountains, Desert. This is literally one of my favorite landscapes, I have a half sleeve tattoo dedicated to all of those things, so I was EXCITED, to say the least.

Meeting my clients for the first time, is always a favorite of mine. I love seeing their wardrobe, and smiling faces. I love being able to capture some of their most memorable moments. I truly consider it an honor, & it is also FUN! Photoshoots should be fun, Right?! We should all enjoy ourselves, let go, laugh a little, enjoy where we are at, in the moment.

& would you believe, this was their first photoshoot! Ever! They were absolute pros, coulda fooled me. & within about, 20 minutes, we were finished with their GORGEOUS session. I also didn’t want to make mama bear walk far, and the trail we chose, was the perfect distance, from the car to the actual shooting area.
