When you share the deep passion for all things Kate Spade and photography, you know it is going to be a wonderful friendship. I met Maria about a year ago in an organization that supports creative entrepreneurs – The Rising Tide Society. She is fiercely devoted to her husband and daughters and is a proud dance mom. She cares for those who call her friend and is always encouraging them.
We were talking about how desperately we needed to update our headshots and so one day we got together and photographed one another. She does amazing work which I shared a recent post. But what she is specializing in is newborn photography– and she is incredible.
The whole session we were laughing about the windy day and how it may or may not affect our dresses. And for a side note, spanx saves eyes. Not that either of us “needed” them, but they help out when the wind catches your dress.
We both adore the variety of locations that you see in forest park, everything from ponds, gorgeous structures and wooded spots. I am always finding undiscovered locations that I adore.
One of my new favorite spots is next to the Jewel Box where there is this gorgeous willow tree next to a pond. It has a beautiful mix of whimsy and ethereal.
By the way, have you seen anyone else rock a band like that better? And this chica came prepared with multiple options. I told you we were meant to be friends.
As we continued to giggle through the session, we ended it at the Jewel Box where she perfectly matched her teal shirt to the building accents. Now that is thinking ahead. I mentioned this girl liked Kate Spade and she incorporated her love of it into our session.
