This mama-to-be was incredible to work with. She arrived with ideas to incorporate all the spirit animals that had come up around her pregnancy. Turtle, otter and snake were all incorporated in special spots. The gender of the baby is unknown and the parents-to-be refer to it as little otter, which I think is so sweet! The playful otter swims on this woman's forearm. I love how the turtle is a strong, protective presence.
It was a glorious hot summer afternoon when we slipped out of the studio for photos - on a sweet little neighborhood trail near our home in Louisville, Colorado. It was blazing hot so we first slipped into the quiet little forest for some shots, then traveled out into the sun where the mama-to-be did some amazing dancing in the bright sunlight!
We ended with some dear images taken beside purple flowers and a sweet sun-ray blessing.
