As many of you know, I'm currently pregnant with our third son, due November 24th. Surprisingly, even after being pregnant two other times, I've never had maternity portraits done! I had a vision of exactly what I wanted- something more natural, boho style, and as always that gorgeous golden light. I asked my fellow photog friend, Heather Riley, to meet me and use my gear to get a few images of me and my family so I could edit and print them. I am SO grateful she agreed because I'm extremely excited to finally have a great portrait of my own family to print and hang in our home. 

 

I asked my hair and makeup artist, Jessica Musselman with Arbonne, to come over that day to doll me up for the session. I'm great with photoshop but definitely not a hair and makeup type gal- she did amazing and all of her products are natural so that's a huge plus for me. I always recommend my clients to get their hair and makeup done to take the pressure off and feel a bit pampered on their session day. 

 

My dress was custom made by Mova Light Maternity based in California. I had a vision of the dress I wanted to wear so I emailed them and she sketched it up and make it exactly how I wanted it. This gorgeous custom down is now part of the growing KMP Maternity Client closet! 

 

Here are a few of my favorite shots from our session:

Houston Maternity Photographer | Rachel's Forest Maternity Session https://www.kimberlymacrae.com/blog/2017/9/houston-maternity-photographer-rachels-forest-maternity-session I've known Rachel since elementary school, so I was so thrilled when she contacted me to do her maternity portraits! She is currently expecting their second daughter, Harper, in October 2017! 

It was a joy meeting her husband Francisco and her 3 year old daughter, Hayden. Look at her gorgeous hair! She was an absolute doll! 

Rachel borrowed two gowns from the Kimberly MacRae Photography Client Closet. She chose the baby pink Aurora gown from Leah Maria Couture, and the sheer white lace gown. They looked incredible on her!

A few more of my favorites:

We did the session reveal two weeks after the session and they chose some great products- a 20x30 gallery wrap with brushstroke finish, 11x14 vibrant metal print, and an 8x8 custom linen album. I can't wait to deliver their products for them to enjoy for years to come! Thank you so much for choosing me to capture this precious time, you guys were a joy to work with!

The Coco Family https://www.kimberlymacrae.com/blog/2017/6/the-coco-family I really love photographing families, especially fun ones like the Coco family! They were so sweet and such a joy to work with! After having to reschedule multiple times due to the rain, we finally got a break and shot this session at my tree location near The Woodlands, Texas. 

 

Little Evangeline had me chasing after her and playing the whole session, she was the cutest! She was a great little helper, too.

But her little brother, Jean-Luc, was just as cute! She was so gentle with him, giving him kisses and hugs- The kind of stuff that makes your heart melt! 

And giving hugs to her mama and daddy, too.

Jean-Luc was so precious! When I met his mommy for her pre-session consult he was so tiny! I really couldn't believe how big he was at our session about 2 months later. He smiled and loved playing with his daddy. 

It was a wonderful session with a wonderful family. They loved their images and purchased a gorgeous custom signature album with a silver linen cover and gorgeous fine art metal print.

Thanks so much to the Coco Family for choosing me to capture this previous time in your life! It was an honor.

Melissa's Sunset Maternity Session- The Woodlands, TX https://www.kimberlymacrae.com/blog/2017/2/melissas-sunset-maternity-session--the-woodlands-tx Melissa & Jake are expecting their first child, baby Audrey, in March!

I met Melissa for her pre-session consult and I was immediately excited to work with her and take her maternity portraits.  I really love when you meet clients that are so excited about their portraits, it makes you even more excited! She wanted a natural, soft background so we decided on the "tree" and "field" locations in The Woodlands, TX.

My maternity clients also get complimentary use of my Client Closet to choose up to two dresses to wear for their portrait session. She chose the elegant Ivory flowy gown from Parfait Couture, and my sheer white lace gown. We chose the lace gown for the sunset images- those were absolutely *stunning* but we'll keep those shots for them to enjoy ;) 

Their session was definitely one of my favorite sessions to date. They were so much fun to photograph and everything from the weather, locations, dresses, and lighting was absolutely perfect!  

During their session reveal & ordering night, I got to take a peek at her nursery and it was gorgeous! Light pink, sage green, and touches of gold- it was soft, feminine, and really beautiful. 

 

 

This was one of my favorite shots because you can feel the love between them.

A little (big) change... https://www.kimberlymacrae.com/blog/2016/12/a-little-change I've got some exciting news!

I've been working behind the scenes for the last couple of months to put together a new business model to better serve Kimberly MacRae Photography clients in 2017 and beyond. With these changes I will take fewer clients each month to really focus on a quality experience for each client. I aim to provide a full photography experience- from a pre-session in-person/phone consult where we get to meet and go over vision, wardrobe, location, and collections. 1-2 hour on-location shooting time, session premier night where you get to see your images for the very first time and order GORGEOUS professionally printed products. I'll help you decide on sizes, placements, and material. 

Some of the products I'll offer are: metal prints, gallery wraps, mounted prints, custom slideshows, reveal books, luxe image boxes, and albums. I'll also offer high resolution digital images for purchase as well. 

I have a few samples, one of which is my luxe image box. This beautiful wooden box holds 20 5x7 mounted prints and a custom USB drive with your digital images. 

I'll also offer Gallery Wraps. Images are professionally printed on premium canvas, sprayed with a protective gel coat, and finished with a black backing, saw tooth hanging bar, and non-slip rubber bumper.

Canvas Canvas

And finally, one of my favorites, vibrant metal prints. These are AWESOME! They are super clean and sleek with a nice shine to them. Colors really pop on metal prints and I was amazed seeing one for the first time. 

I am so excited for this change and I can't wait to provide top-notch service and products to my amazing clients! If you're interested in scheduling a session for 2017 please contact me at (281) 979-0200 or [email protected]
