just the most fun, over the top, sexy maternity session ever.

If you have lived in the Portland metro area for longer than 5 minuets you know this amazingly beautiful and witty soon to be mama. Daria is absolutely fabulous in every way, so when I heard on the radio she was expecting I just knew I had to do her maternity session. When she contacted me and asked if her fantastic husband Dallas could come, I said heck yeah!

We had a great time. I just love a pregnant mama that wants to show her sexy side.Β  Daria & Dallas wereΒ  a riot, and I think we got some great images!

Here are a few of my favorites so far:


You can tell Daria is loving being pregnant, she looks so comfortable with that beautiful belly.



They are so perfect together.


Such a bombshell this mama.


She knows how to vamp it up!


How perfect is the big belly heart. So glad this dress still fit D!


I love that they got all giddy talking about their little dude. He is going to be one loved baby.

So after a few of the ones above I asked Daria to break out a comic book or two.

I always like to include people’s art and passions.Β  Well a comic book or two later we ended up in full on Batman costume! How freaking rad is Dallas for making it work. πŸ™‚


this one is my personal fav.Β  I love the contrast of the belly & the batman.Β  I could see this one printed BIG.


Miss Daria art directed this shot. Have I mentioned they were super fun? I love clients with a vision.


and this one is just so them.

Daria & Dallas, I had an absolute blast meeting the two of you. Thanks for letting me have free reign over your home to make the shoot work. I hope you love these as much as I do. I can’t wait to hear all about your little dude. He is one lucky boy! I am already having visions of him cradled in super hero arms. πŸ™‚ And as I do for all new clients I would be happy to offer you a blog challenge. If you can get 25 people to comment on this post I will throw in an 11×14 mounted wall print. You know that is if you can spare a little room on your beautifully covered walls.

So get commenting people.Β  How could you not have something to say!

    Sonia - OMG this has to be the BEST ever maternity shoot Em!!!!!!

    Just so amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

  • May 5, 2009 - 11:15 am

    olivia - these are amazing, Em! D&D look amazingly happy. and i agree, i can’t wait to see the baby nestled in batman’s arms!!

  • May 5, 2009 - 11:19 am

    Farrell - I can only imagine how fun that shoot was! πŸ™‚

    And how cool is it, that the husband agreed to dress up as Batman (newer costume; you can tell by the lack of an oval background for the bat symbol on the chest)?!

    You can easily tell how much fun the couple were having. I can only surmise part of that was their intrinsic nature, and part of it was the ease they must have felt around the photographer. Good work, Emily. ;^)

  • May 5, 2009 - 3:24 pm

    Brittany - OMG Daria you look BEAUTIFUL! And Dallas looks AWESOME as Batman. I just have one thing to say, after Baby Xander is born (amd I right in assuming the Buffy spelling will be used?) you should really put him in a plaid shirt and baby jeans and make him look like Buffy’s best bud and side kick. And ya know throw all the Buffy comics around him. That would look so cool. And “Batman” has to take some pics with him too. Loved all the pics, thank you so much for sharing!
