Thought I’d just post a few “extras” from the Bump Smitten feature . . . (I love extras, outtakes, behind the scenes kind of stuff, myself):
This weekend, Elle did “step 3” of her “as you grow” package (you get pics at any 3 phases of life) for one of her favorite clients. We did maternity shots, then newborn shots & now the baby is a year old already! I can hardly believe it. Here’s a sample of the “as you grow” concept & a sneak preview from their latest shoot:
One year old:
The Daily Beast has published this list of creative baby names by Pamela Redmond Satran (I swear I think she used to be a columnist for Glamour Magazine way back when & now makes money selling books of lists . . . wish I thought of that) author of “Beyond Ava & Aiden.” I rather like Ava & Aiden, but hey, for all you expecting mamas out there, here’s just something else to look at. Who knows, you could discover the Emma of this generation . . .
(For what it’s worth, Elle loves the name Emma too.)
Elle is a huge fan of reality television. Maybe she should keep that a dirty little secret . . . . But since it’s out there, lately, one of Elle’s favorites has been the hilarious Bravo show “Bethenny Getting Married?” — it’s surprisingly poignant. Of course, I became interested when in the last episode, Bethenny decided to do a maternity photo shoot (see, you had to know I’d turn this post around to photography sooner or later) & I thought it would be a good opportunity to remind y’all that Elle does maternity shoots too. If you’re watching Bethenny, you may be thinking “the last thing I want to be is naked in a photograph while preggers.” Don’t worry – you can do your shoot any way you like. Elle has private studio space & also does a lot of maternity work outdoors too. Contact Elle for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good news for you moms-to-be, Top Shop, that kicky British store that has yet to come to SF has a maternity line you can buy online. Super stylish duds that I’d love to see in “regular” wear. And when can you ever say that about maternity clothes?! The days of Princess Diana’s bow dresses are long gone . . .
I thought these current offerings were cute —
this weekend Elle did a photo shoot with the gorgeous rachel who’s expecting her first child. here are a few favorites from this session.
