Our first shoot-out in Oregon was bitterly cold and windy. While all of us photographers bundled up in cozy down jackets, Genevieve braved the cold and windy air like a champ, flicking her gorgeous hair in the wind for romantic, feely, moody maternity photos at the breathtaking overlook.

Stormy styled the session perfectly by ditching the traditional flowy maxi dress for more organic feeling pieces of clothing by utilizing the brands free people, piper and scoot, and the simple folk.

If I learned one thing about visiting Oregon, it’s how unpredictable coastal weather is. While our prior family session at the coast was moody and overcast, and our morning session in the dunes was foggy and romantic, the sun showed off in all its glory during this beach session – YET, it was freezing and windy (great for pictures but not for notoriously cold photographers)

The second we got out of the car, I knew I had completely underestimated how cold it was. Still, luckily, Suzy lent me a cozy brown sweater, and my fingers stayed unfrozen throughout the beautiful session that ended with birds flying over our model family into the sunset.

I can’t remember when I started following Evann on Instagram. Still, there was just something about her that seemed genuinely sweet and captivating – aside from her being beyond gorgeous on the outside.

My goal for 2023 was to take on more personal projects, push myself out of my comfort zone, shake up my routine, and rework my website and editing look to feel more authentic.

Therefore, when I saw Evann’s post about her pregnancy, I spontaneously reached out to her, and within weeks, we photographed her maternity session at Paige Avenue’s studio in St. Louis (who by the way is the master of 🔥🔥 boudoir)
