There is something extraordinarily special about having the chance to freeze moments in time with a photograph. Especially when it marks awaiting the arrival of a new life into this world. I recently had the honor to do a maternity session for a lovely couple in the beautiful and expansive Karura Forest. The colors, the lighting and the love that was felt in each frame created something truly magical! It felt like I was editing the illustration for a mondern-day fairytale, complete with a setting in the enchanted forest! To honor this feel provided by the setting, I edited to maintain bold jewel tones in either natural or matted coloring. As difficult as it was to pick a few favorites from this photoshoot, enjoy the highlights below.
