Blessed | Safety Harbor Maternity Photographer

I'm always honored to photograph expecting mamas during this amazing time in their lives.  I'm thrilled when they choose me to document their pregnancy for them, and to give them photographic proof of the love for their child, that started long before they were even born.  And... when that expecting mama is a dear friend and fellow photographer, well that just makes it even more exciting for me.  Double that when you consider the beautiful story of how much Cilla and Bret have been through in order to bring Baby Steffen into the world... just makes me tear up with gratefulness for them and what lies ahead for their sweet family. The Baierleins and the Woodses have met up for three years in a row, every June, when they come down for vacation.  I photograph her family, and she photographs mine.  Imagine my excitement when we realized that during her visit this year, she'd be at the perfect stage for maternity photos!  I whisked her and Bret off to one of my very favorite locations for the evening.

Just four three! more weeks until your due date, sweet friend!  All my love and blessings.  It's been a wonderful experience to share our pregnancies this go around, and I'm so grateful for your love and support in return.  Much love.

My Maternity Keepsake Box.  Perfect for those clients who have limited wall space, or who choose to save that premium wall space for their upcoming newborn session!  ;)  This box includes 10 matted prints which you can display in several frames, rotate your presentation on an easel, or store in the gorgeous box on your nightstand table or in the baby's room.  These albums, and the following products, are created by Cypress Albums, a fabulous vendor with whom I'm honored to work.  Each of these products are individually handcrafted in a bindery; the mats are handcut, as are the fabrics.  My clients will have their choice of breathtaking Japanese bookbinding fabrics and Swiss ribbons to customize their own album or presentation box.

Above right and below are my new Heirloom Folios.  These folios enclose two matted 5x7 prints, and also can be customized with your choice of fabric and ribbon.  The sweet little folio with the pink bow above is one of the items you'll receive with your Digital Collection!  You'll also receive a matching presentation box (photos to follow later of that box!) containing a 5x7 print of each image.  Again, your choice of fabric and ribbon so that you can coordinate with your baby's nursery decor, grandma's living room, and the colors of your own home.  Genius, no?

Don't forget to ask about these items at your fall or winter session!  I will bring samples and swatches so we can get the perfect match for your display area.  And more samples are on their way to my doorstep, of the Heirloom Album and Heirloom Image Boxes!

Just to show you how amazing Cypress products are, take a look at this video created at the Cypress bindery.  You will see the work and involvement that goes into every piece of art that they release.  I'm so excited to offer these gorgeous albums to my fantastic clients!
