I met Maiki at a little coffee shop in RiNo, Crema , to talk over what she might like for her maternity images. We talked a lot about sunshine and warmth and a go with the flow feeling.
When we got the actual day, well, a few things happened. One, it was terribly stormy and dark, no sun soaked, dreamy images to be made! I also met her husband Ezra and got to see their dynamics together. It was a totally different story from what I had imagined making.
Ezra & Maiki have a firestorm, electric connection. When they are around each other it's like everyone else in the world is gone, they are a true power couple. We decided to just run with it and the incoming storm.
Maiki brought a dressing gown that she had bought for her wedding night but not gotten around to wearing ( there may have been drinking involved ;) ), so we made some dream images in it which are some of my favorites from the session.
A few months later and Juhan was here and we got our sun-soaked images after all!
Of course, dad was the proudest of papas.
We did the session at Ezra's parents house and his mom had the most AMAZING garden. We took a lot of her clippings for the day and made a beautiful little flower wreath for Maiki and to wrap around Juhan.
Juhan was super cooperative and so we did some clean, white on white detail images to capture all that squishy, new baby perfection!
Parenthood suits you both!
