cortney and tony


I’m truly not sure where the inspiration came from to do Cortney and Tony’s maternity session around a clothesline. Typically I’ll brainstorm with my clients for the inspiration behind a shoot, as this is a very important part of the process to make sure the session is a true reflection of the people in the photos. However, Cortney emailed me and said she had no ideas and did I have anything in mind.

And for some reason a clothesline came to mind. Maybe because I associate babies with lots of blankets? With fresh clean laundry (I know mother’s everywhere might be rolling their eyes at that one)? I don’t know. But I DO know I saw a clothesline in my mind. I pitched the idea to her and she was sold, so clothesline it was.

It seriously could NOT have been a better day for this specific session because the wind kept the blankets and sheets on the clothesline moving constantly which made for such fluid images.

I also need to be sure to write a shout-out for my Aunt Lisa for letting us do the photo session in her backyard . . . and at the last minute lending us a couple extra blankets to fill the line! You’re the best!

 I just love when I get the chance to work within a little theme for a session because it makes for inspired photographs!

Cortney and Tony’s newborn/family session will surely be on the blog before we know it!
