Nicole + Michael // Urban Maternity Session // Portland, Oregon Maternity Photographer

What an amazing day. We started out with hair and makeup by the oh so talented Maggie Gettman of Maggie Gettman Beauty. I walked into Nicole and Michael's house and I felt like I had stepped straight into one of those homes from HGTV where you wish you just had an ounce of style that those designers have. And they have a huge, precious pup who walks around their house with a stuffed animal. It may have been one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. I also may or may not have dropped to the floor to snuggle her... I have no shame when it comes to doggy friendships. Once she was all glammed up, we made our way out... to the fields, the ferns, and downtown Portland. We finished with Mexican food because modeling ain't no joke, especially when you're growing a human. 
Baby Hazel made her way into this world last week, and you can bet that I will be inviting myself over to meet her next time I'm in the big city... and maybe to snuggle their precious pup again...
