The Traveling Dress Collective - A Motherhood Society Collaboration

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.

Sage & Waverly | A Denver Motherhood Session

Denver motherhood baby child photography 

For a little while I've been working on the motherhood sessions and I have to say I'm just dead in love with them. Maybe it's my own motherhood tinting my impressions, maybe it's because I'm meeting the most amazing mothers, maybe its because this project is just so honest, real and full of the complexity of mothering.

Whats the best thing about mothering? “ You know when you’re right at that edge, and want to maybe murder your child? But then they do something so sweet and cute and you feel like your heart with explode for loving them so much?

These portraits are some true hearts work; I love to see the joy and the bonds between moms and their children. The patience, the tears, the kisses, the cuddles and of course, the tubs!

Before & After 2 | BTS on a maternity edit

Our second BTS editing blog is on a big favorite session this year, my maternity session with Kacey. Her session was so much fun to both shoot and edit; most images are corrected for tones, colors and more contrast. I was a big user of contrast filters in the dark room back in the day!

Remember, editing is there to enhance what you've already made. My editing process is based very heavily on my shooting process which, in turn, is designed to get in camera exactly what I want.
