Today I’m taking a look back at this time last year when Ceila contacted me about her mountain maternity session. She told me that she had looked at tons of portfolios and her choice was me! I’m always so incredibly honored and surprised when my clients tell me that. There is SO MUCH talent in Colorado and it’s always just so special when a client forms a connection with my work.
I was knee deep in busy season and it took me longer than usual to respond and her persistence to hire me was such a blessing. I was so excited to photograph Ceila & Niko. They had moved to Colorado not long before our session (and have since said goodbye to my sad dismay!) and wanted to showcase the mountain views that our state holds near and dear. We headed up to Mt Falcon which is a tried and true favorite for mountain maternity and had absolutely perfect light for our entire session.
Maternity sessions are always so deeply focused on the baby but I really wanted to showcase the relationship between these two incredible people. Ceila & Niko have a beautiful connection and good lord. The way that Niko looked at Ceila was enough to make you quake at the knees. They were both so very excited to be parents and already loved their little guy so much.
Ceila wore gorgeous gowns for her session and they really popped against the landscape. That maroon dress was to die for. It brought a classic elegance to the rugged yet serene landscape that Mount Falcon provides. Mountain maternity sessions will ALWAYS win my approval!
Also, can I tell you about how Niko was super stoked to be photographed? Honestly, so many men in general bemoan the process of being photographed and it was so refreshing that he was so excited for it. It is my mission to bring the fun back into being photographed so that it doesn’t feel like such a chore for so many people. I promise you, it isn’t as scary as we all make it out to be! And if you have fun with it your images will be fantastic!
Ceila & Niko are settled in another state now and while I wish so much that I could photograph that sweet little cherub of theirs, I’m so ecstatic to see them doing well where they are!
