I'm not saying I didn't enjoy photographing pregnancy before I had a baby of my own, but compared to how greatly I love documenting this transition NOW versus THEN -- it is night and day. I consider it the highest honor to be invited into the last remaining moments of a couple's life before it is forever changed.
I have this friend, her name is Rhyan.
Her work is no stranger to this blog of mine, because she is the artist behind every mythological goddess in my Creatures Series.
She is currently in the throes of rebranding and redesigning her website, so we decided to get some babes together and play dress up. Rhyan is truly a wizard when it comes to hair and makeup. She creates the boldest, most stunning looks -- and it seems so effortless. She is creative through and through, and I am honored to count her among my friends.
Do yourself a favor and follow her on Instagram and Facebook so you can be the first to know when her new website launches, featuring even more photos from this gorgeous shoot!!!
Thanks to these lovebirds, Phoenix got to go on her first airplane last week.
Now, I LOVE California landscapes. But shooting with these Colorado colors, views, and light -- A DREEEEEEAM.
Oh, and Rick & Kelly might be the cutest thing things baby's bottoms (and I would know).
