Kacie…pregnancy is beautiful

Pregnancy IS beautiful and if you are pregnant you should consider having artistic maternity portraits created.  Why?  Maternity portraits capture your changing, growing and radiant body!  Celebrate the life growing inside of you and capture moments that you can share with that little miracle when they get older.  My favorite photo of my mom is a picture of her 9 months pregnant with me!  This is a moment of your life that you will never have again.  You might have other pregnancies, but not this exact one ever again.  And if I had a dollar for every time I heard… “Oh I wish I would have had maternity portraits done” or “I wish I would have known that maternity photography was a thing when I was pregnant.” or “I didn’t have any pictures taken when I was pregnant because I felt huge, and now I regret it.” …well, let’s just say I’d be a rich woman.

This gorgeous mama-to-be actually stopped me in my tracks.  I had been running a model call for maternity when I saw her at the BabyExpo and I literally called out to her across the aisle.  Can’t you see why?!  My goodness, she’s beautiful.  She was reluctant too…like so many moms I meet!  But we had such a fun portrait session in the studio and she loves her portraits!

Don’t let your doubts stop you.  I have over 14 years of experience in accentuating the BEAUTY of the pregnant body.  Give me your trust for an hour or so…together, we can make you into a piece of art!

Looking for models!

From time to time Barefoot Photography goes looking for models for creative sessions. If you are interested in possibly being a model, email me at kw@kimberlywhipps.com.  I can send you details about how modeling for a creative session works.

Looking for Models

Current Model Search

First, I am looking for a pregnancy model who is or will be 34-36 weeks along during the month of May or early June.

Next, I am also looking for a mother of two daughters who are both 10-18 years of age.

And lastly, I am ALWAYS looking for newborn triplets. I would prefer the babies to be 2-4 weeks old.

If you, or someone you know, falls into any of the categories above, please EMAIL me at kw@kimberlywhipps.com with a snapshot. I will forward you a link with an application and details.

Please share this with anyone you know who would qualify and would like a complimentary session. Thank you very much!

Jeanette – Six Months – Portland Photographer

Meet little Miss Jeanette, or Netty – the cutest little nickname ever.  Netty came to see me with her family…mom, dad and her two big brothers, who happen to have 4 paws.  I love when families bring their dogs into the studio for a family portrait session!  She was all smiles, and like my middle daughter, the happier she was, the wider her mouth was.  HA!  Such joy.  Netty was an absolute pleasure to photograph.  Are you looking for a Portland photographer for your baby or family sessions?  I would be happy to meet with you for a pre-consultation, so give me a call or send me an email.  But enough about that…let’s enjoy some really big smiles!

Family Portraits

If you have a pet that you would like to join in for family portraits, please do not hesitate to ask.  I can’t promise to make them smile, but I’ll do my best!  The hardest part is getting them to sit still…but once we get that, getting them to look is no trouble.  And look at little Netty here with her boys!  So precious…an wonderful memory!

Tween and Sibling PortraitsSibling Portraits

You know how they say, the cobbler’s kids have no shoes?  Well…it holds true for photographers too, my kids have no shoes.  (Hee hee)   Actually…it is true that I rarely get my own little faces into the studio for updated portraits.  But I am so thankful I finally found the time in their busy schedule and mine to take these photographs.  For these portraits, we really wanted to capture their personalities  at this moment, their favorite things, how they are beginning to define themselves as individuals.  Your family session can include both tween and sibling portraits!

Maybe you have someone in your life starting to do the same…a budding artist, a football star, a future veterinarian?  Perhaps we can capture a similar moment in time for you!  Did you know that
“tween” mini sessions can be done at any time?  Mini sessions are typically a special event at Barefoot Photography, but I think tween portraits are overlooked, and necessary, so I offer them at any time.  Contact me for more information, and do it today before your tween becomes a teen and then a young adult!  Careful…could be happening right now!

Capturing Individuality!

Oh my goodness, this girl and her stuffed animals.  I don’t like to throw around the word obsession…but there are over 120, so what would you call that?

But never the less, look at the joy they bring her!  So glad we captured this moment before they stuffed animals are replaced with make up and boys.

Tween Portraits

And, our soccer star!  This girl plays on two different teams and almost ended up on three.  She is a rockstar and her focus and determination is inspiring.

Throw a challenge down and this girl will conquer it.

Tween Portraits

The lure of the stage…our girl in the limelight.  I still cannot believe that she started this adventure just two years ago and is already singing, dancing and acting

with more heart and passion than people who have been at it for years. Watching her perform is sheer bliss!

Tween Portraits

So proud to call these three ours!  “Behold, children are a gift of the LORD.” Psalm 127:3aTween and Sibling Portraits

mariena – 36 weeks – Pregnancy Portraits

It is such a pleasure to have a client come back again and again for pregnancy portraits, and so it was with Aaron and Mariena.  I photographed Abby when she was just a tiny bundle, and now she’s the big sister!   These portraits were taken during their mini maternity session.  Did you know that a mini maternity session is a complimentary add on when you book your newborn appointment with Barefoot Photography?  A fabulous option for moms who want to capture their pregnancy but don’t need a full session.
