When I first saw this space back in September, I remember thinking I would just go see it so I could get it out of my mind. Of course the complete opposite happened. It instantly felt right and the light was so beautiful. I spent three days running the numbers and trying to convince myself I didn’t need it, but sure enough first thing Monday I was in there signing the lease and the rest was history.
I have since spent months getting everything ready and imagining all the different lifestyle sessions I would be able to do there. It was out of this that the Simple Sessions were born. I loved the idea of quick, simple, beautiful sessions that I could offer during the cold winter months while staying true to the lifestyle brand I have built. While backdrops and props work for some, I wanted something different that focused on connection, authenticity, and real moments between families. This is where the studio bed came into play, as every single session centers around it where families can play, snuggle, and simply just connect. I wanted these sessions to feel like one of those relaxing Saturday mornings where the whole family piles in bed together – when there’s no rush to be anywhere, no schedules to meet, and they can just be together, making the kind of memories that count.
So when the time rolled around that I finally would get to do my first full session there, I felt excited and nervous all in one and thankfully, it did not disappoint. This Simply Maternity session was amazing from start to finish and I am so excited to finally be able to share sessions from this new space. I met this family back in the fall when we did fall portraits, and they brought the best energy. As a blended family with three older boys and a fourth one on the way, these guys have their hands full in the absolute best way.
There are so many moments I love in this session. There is no denying the connection and love these two share, and it is uniquely theirs. That’s the thing about these sessions; the location and the poses are the same, but what makes them stand out is the connection each family brings and it’s different for every session. The little looks, laughter, the way she looks at him with so much joy like he’s her everything, that can’t be faked or replicated. It is uniquely their family story.
I would love to give your family a session like this. I am now offering Simply Maternity, Simply Newborn, Simply Family Snuggle Sessions, and Simply Us Couples sessions in my studio, located on Fulton Road just a few blocks from Belden Village Mall. If you are interested, contact me today! And P.S. that white lace dress is part of my Client Closet and available to borrow for your Simple Session!
