maternity boudoir photography

I was really excited to surprise my propellers with this special shoot.  Maternity is such an intimate and beautiful thing to shoot that is often overlooked. As wedding photographers, this is a common progression for our brides.  It is so amazing to be able to reconnect with your past couples as they begin this next journey.  I wanted to give my propellers this experience – this was the first maternity boudoir shoot for most of them.

I gave my propellers priority to shoot, so these are just a few that I got while demonstrating/instructing.  You can see some of my propellers photos featured at On to Baby!

propel workshop review | angel

“Caroline used to be a physics teacher, so I knew that her love of teaching would bring a new level of learning to her workshop… From the time that I arrived, I was impressed at the amount of detail and planning that went into the day…  A fabulous breakfast, materials (all in pretty branding) were provided and even the seating was arranged. One of my favorite sections of the workshop was that prior to the workshop, Caroline asked us to send in 5 of our photos…We did a group experiment with the photos and that lesson in itself has forever changed the way that I look at my photography style and my branding.

Caroline let us  have individual time to shoot the details and couples and arranged the shoots in a way that we were able to create our own art and sense of style. It was very inspiring to watch my new friends work!

I have totally re-worked my branding… and I have a lot of good changes that are in the making! There were so many things that I have taken away from this workshop… a lot of things that I should have been doing for years and had NO idea… most importantly I have achieved my personal private goal that I’ve had for 7 years that I shared in confidence with the group at the workshop. It was a lovely, fun day and I can truly say that the video on her Propel workshop page portrays the excitement of the day!”

propel photography workshop review | cheryl m

“Propel left me a new level of self confidence, a new circle of contacts from all over the United States and a fire to go and revamp my business.  I learned I was not running a “sustainable business” and needed to remove the emotional part that was clouding my pricing vision.  I learned to trust my vision, stop questioning myself and really go for my goals.  I was so happy with the location as well as vendors presented…

Every single detail from start to finish was impeccable. Propel was Style-Me-Pretty beautiful.  SO much thought and planning went into the workshop – any new propeller will be thrilled.  I do have to say all of the materials and vendors, I have either visited their sites multiple times or purchased from them because they are the best and I want the best for my business.  I was once told, successful people invest in themselves – Propel was a great investment for me!
