Sometimes you have clients that can only best be described as your “muse.” Ashley is one of these clients for me. Not only is she the absolute sweetest person you’ll ever met, but she just inspires me to go beyond the box to create something magical and unique for her. I first met her when I had the pleasure of photographing her and her now husband, Javier, for both their engagement session and wedding day. Having the opportunity to work with her again for maternity portraits for the impending arrival of their beautiful baby girl was such a rewarding experience. Ashley put her full trust in me and when I came to her with this idea for water portraits, she didn’t even hesitate to say yes. I knew that Ashley was having a natural home birth and I wanted to convey a sense of peacefulness and calmness for her maternity portraits. Bringing her session directly into nature; into one of the most powerful elements within it, water, was the perfect way to convey the amazing process of childbirth and also add an element of drama.
