Cleveland & Lakewood baby and motherhood Photographer| Ashley Brandich
BABY it's cold outside! In January, I held a model search for a Cleveland winter Maternity Session. I took down 4 names of area models who were willing to brave having bare arms in the dead of winter surrounded by heaping piles of snow. I ordered the maternity dress and scarf to match and then we all patiently (and I mean patiently) waited for a good snowfall. We've had a particularly unusual, less snow, kind of winter. I got one opportunity in February but the snow had melted during the night of my planned morning session. When it snowed this week after being unseasonably warm and in the 70's in February, I pulled every string I could and squeezed in this VERY last minute session. I didn't want to take any chances that we might not get anymore snow this winter. So my elementary school friend (who happens to live a handful of blocks from me) and I hopped in my car and scooted down to the Rocky River Reservation. As some of you recall, that is my favorite spot for fall family photo sessions and it didn't disappoint for this winter Maternity Session. Andi and I braved (more her than me) the arctic 20+ degree temps as we hurried around the park snapping pictures, putting coats and gloves on and off, and hopping in the warm car for a brief moment to thaw before scurrying to another spot around the golf course. You would have absolutely no idea looking at these photographs that I was shivering with every click of my shutter as Andi made each picture look as warm as summer! She did a fantastic job and I'm in complete disbelief that I didn't have to edit a red nose in a single photo! These images are helping me round out my Maternity Session Portfolio that will offer images from every season outdoors as well as my In-studio Maternity Sessions.
