About a month ago I grabbed coffee with local makeup artist Carisse, from Beauty by Carisse, and struck up a sweet friendship. Her work is absolutely amazing and her heart for showing beauty in women of all ages and stages is beautiful. So when she mentioned wanting to collaborate for a styled shoot (and when she showed me a photo of her model best friend) I was more than thrilled to be included!
I had such a blast styling and photographing this session and spending the evening with Carisse and Marcela at Tower Grove Park. Since I largely shoot with couples, it was a treat to get creative and capture such a sweet season of life for Marcela as she awaits her baby boy’s arrival. I think you’ll agree with me (even just in seeing the collage so far) that Marcela is downright GORGEOUS and her beauty was only amplified with Carisse’s magic touch!
Enjoy some favorites of mine (there were honestly too many favorites!) from this sweet maternity session.
