Witchy Maternity Shoot - Seattle Fine Art Photographer

Hollie and Merlin came to me with the idea of doing something different for their Seattle Maternity shoot.

Please don’t take this literally or be afraid - we did not put any witch spells on the baby or sell it to the devil or anything like that. We just wanted to get real artsy and dark for this maternity shoot.

So we braved the cold and powered through what turned out to be one of my all time favorite maternity sessions of all time in the history of my maternity photographing life.

“Lady of the silver moon
Enchantress of the night
Protect me and mine within this circle fairly cast.
Earth Mother, mother of the sleeping earth,
Keep safe all who gather here
Within the protective shelter of your arms”

Becoming Beatrice

This was the introduction of a very important character in my life, BEATRICE.

I did not know until this shoot if the images would come across as “funny” or not, which is not exactly what I am going for.

Erin is the perfect model to introduce Beatrice with, because my Beatrice embodies ANIMAL RIGHTS, and my friend Erin is vegan. I fact, half of what Erin and I talk about is animal rights, no joke.

We shot this at a park in Tacoma WA. Erin and I stopped by UXC (my favorite vintage clothing store) and I scored this dress that matched the barn and background so well (first photo) for 35 bucks. I love that place.

To make this the perfect trip to Tacoma, we enjoyed some awesome vegan dinner after our shoot at TOP OF TACOMA- a killer dive bar with good food. The next morning we drove to Olympia to Wolf Haven where Erin volunteers so I could take a tour and listen to the wolves howl. The place is amazing. I strongly recommend either a visit or a donation.

From Beatrice to you all, have a wonderful day, and eat some tofu please.
