The Traveling Dress Collective - A Motherhood Society Collaboration

The Traveling Dress Collaboration is a brilliant creative project brought together by several photographers within the Motherhood Society (Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy Magazine's endorsed professional motherhood photography communication). As elite creatives, each photographer was impressed with one another’s different photography and editing style and they decided to celebrate different women, all from different ethnicity, different stages in their pregnancies and in different settings, using the exact same dress to make their unique visions come to life. Each photographer had one single week with the dress, a custom design from Sew Trendy Accessories; styling the dress with their own creative vision and shooting it with their own style, before mailing it off to the next person. To avoid creatively influencing the vision of one another, the participating photographers agreed to refrain from sharing the images until each of them had the opportunity to shoot with the dress and submit their images for publish in the magazine. The dress traveled around the United States between eight participants, each very different in shooting style and artistic voice, we are so excited to share this collaboration with you! 

 

I had the deep honor of photographing two mamas in waiting for my portion of the project. First time mama Jess ran away to the creek with me and dreamed in the water.

Jaxon : A fresh 48 & Newborn Story

We all know that Freshies are just about my favorite thing and this sweet snowy day was no exception to that rule! Little Jaxon Luke had made his appearance in the world and I ran right over to meet him! 

This little one had the most adorable chunky cheeks and the most impossibly awful smelling gas! It was a wild ride of " awww how cute and OMG what is that ?!?!" Good thing he was so adorable!! Mom and dad didn't care, and of course neither did I, too funny though. 

All of a sudden, it's two weeks later and I'm on my way to see that babe in his house; all snuggled up with mom and dad, and fur siblings! Everyone was settled into a nice routine and of course, a little bit obsessed with the new family memeber.

Many children are wished for and celebrated; this little one was SO wished for and his arrival was greeted with that impossible euphoria of a dream come true. 

Welcome to the World Jaxon, you are so very very loved already!
