Missoula Mountain Maternity. Mothering in Skin has intention.

#Motheringinskin. My oldest daughter told me that the purpose of a hashtag is that others will use it. I said,

“One day they will.”¬†

Mothering in skin. The beauty. The push the pull. Stretch, release, love and surrender.

This mothering was hot and wet. Maternity photography in the great Northwest. Rocky Mountains!

I am not okay with a session just anywhere, anymore. I guess I never was, I have always encouraged my clients to choose a location that means something to them. And if you don’t have an idea, then yes, I will come up with one. Maternity is an adventure and adventure in Missoula, Montana is what settles so many of us here. Hiking, skiing, hot springs, rock climbing, cabins, and campfires.

To play devil’s advocate. Adventure takes place in the intimacy of one’s home, next to the nearby creek–it is mainly the intent and spirit one brings to the session. Your baby is going to be the biggest and best adventure of your life. I guarantee it.

So use it. #motheringinskin  How will you use it? Show us your journey. Tell us your story. I am listening.

Looking for artful documentation to tell your story- please be in touch.

Missoula Maternity

I have had the honor of photographing some really gorgeous maternity sessions recently here in Missoula. I’m drawing some fans from Butte, Anaconda and transplant Washington mamas! This has been such a joy, stretching my wings in different directions, making these mama connections. Showing mamas just how beautiful they are. Not sexualizing but emphasizing the body, the change that is happening from within.
