Maternity and Family Portraits of the Baumgartners

This is a new family for Recherche Photography and we had so much fun! We were able to create maternity portraits of Natalie who is expecting their second baby in just a couple weeks plus family portraits plus portraits of their first baby who is a little lady by now! It was a whirlwind of a shoot, but that seems par for the course around here! As always, we were all surprised and delighted with the results. Hard to miss with a family as pretty as this. (How poetic.)


A Lovely Louisville, CO Maternity Portrait Session with Recherche Photography

Bright natural sunlight streamed in through my studio sky light and bay window the day we photographed Mariah’s maternity session. This mommy-to-be has the most gorgeous peaches-and-cream complexion and to-die-for hair. She brought in beautiful clothing options and made sure she had worn loose fitting clothes all day to make sure she wouldn’t have creases on her skin. She did her homework and I think it paid off!

Maternity Portraits with Lori & Mike


Whilst cleaning out my blog drafts this morning I realized I neglected to post this beautiful shoot with Lori & Mike! Eeeek!! So many shoots to keep up with! They’ve probably had their bouncing baby boy by now! Looking forward to that shoot as well and promise to post THOSE images promptly!

We quickly decided this little parasol was WAY too feminine for Mike, but this shot makes me smile. Too funny! (It was drizzling by the way which is why we got it out in the first place- not just a totally random prop!)09LoriMikeMAT 13LoriMikeMAT
I never really suggest what clients should bring for their shoots because I find that way everyone brings something unique! Isn’t this scarf pretty?! I loved it with my shimmery floral backdrop which I found in a flea market!19LoriMikeMAT 29LoriMikeMAT
Lori has THE most beautiful glowy skin. 30LoriMikeMAT 35LoriMikeMAT 36LoriMikeMAT
Feeling awkward in a photo shoot usually results in some very genuine laughs!39LoriMikeMAT
