Eastern Oregon Boudoir Photographer | maternity session in La Grande

You may recognize this mama-to-be, as I recently posted images from the couples session I did with her and the proud-papa-to-be. River, a fellow photographer, is now a fellow Mama! Her little girl, Ivy, was born about a month ago now. I probably shouldn’t say little, though, as she was over 10 pounds. Congrats to you, River & Levi!

Portland Oregon Boudoir Studio | sweet maternity session

I occasionally get asked by clients, in almost a panicked tone, if I have to share their images. The answer is absolutely not! Yes, I love to share my sessions because my clients are beautiful,  I’m proud of my work, and it gives future clients inspiration for their own sessions, BUT it is not a requirement that you sign a model release! If you want to keep your images to yourself, I will absolutely respect that. I’d say about 1/3 of my clients keep their images private. It also doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing” situation. You can pick and choose which images I share. For example, this beautiful mama must remain anonymous for a variety of reasons, but she gave me permission to share these shots.
Can I also brag here for a minute? These were shot in front of a window and some $10 Ikea curtains. Sometimes I feel like the MacGyver of photography.
