Courtney’s Baby Boy // Maternity Photography Memphis Tn

After Courtney told me she was decorating her nursery with elephants, all I could think about was how great the zoo would be for her shoot! I love how versatile it can be for providing great opportunities to have a good time with whatever you are doing there. ( plus, ELEPHANTS!)  Courtney herself is probably one of THE cutest “mama-to-be”.  Her little boy showed us how great life can be even before he officially arrived.  I’m grateful we had the opportunity to create together on this, because the zoo holds a special place for me and I delight in any chance to return.  (especially if FILM is involved!)


Now, on to the post…. It’s jam packed with light and love and wonder for what is to come…c_101c_102c_103c_104c_105c_106c_107c_108c_109c_110c_111c_112c_113c_114c_115c_116c_117c_118c_119

Expecting LILY // Maternity Boudoir Portrait Photography Memphis Tn

I have recently joined a blog circle!   As a way to see more photography using film and introduce myself, and others to work we might not have seen, the circle from the FILM MAMA community was created.  It’ll be very exciting to see what everyone chooses to shoot and how the different films will convey the images.  So in anticipation of what is to come, I thought an expectant mother would be wonderful for my first share in the circle!  Her name is Kathleen and at the time, she was expecting her sweet baby Lily.

Please follow the link at the bottom to the next person in the circle! A short trip through the circle will be a “visual exploration in film and film cameras”.  You will know you are done, when you end up back here.  SO easy!

Thank you for having a look! The next photographer up is Lauren Radley !

Baby B // Maternity Portrait Photography Memphis TN

“Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man.

Bake me a cake as fast as you can;

Roll it, Pat it and mark it with B,

Put it in the oven for baby and me.”
