Portland Lifestyle Photographer | Masha Georgiev | Details

I've been meaning to post a blog about this topic for a while, and since today is a pretty chill day, I figure I could tackle this topic here.

DETAILS!

So many of you ask me questions like,

"Should I have my make up done?"

"Should I have my hair done?"

"Should we do a posed session or a lifestyle session?" 

"Should I get false lashes?"

The simple answer is I don't know. The reason why, is that so many of you are so different. What may work for one family, does not work for another. In fact, in the beginning I used to always suggest that Mom's have false lashes for the dramatic effect. Later I realized that although I love the dramatic volume look, some moms just don't. Some want a more natural look.

Some families want a totally 100% posed photo session. They want me to take control, guide them, pose, them, turn them, and direct them every step of the way. Others, (like myself) want a more natural, organic feel photo session, and anything that even resembles posing is out of the question. 

So what's a photog to do? The best solution is often the simplest. 

Before booking any session, I schedule a convenient time, when you are most relaxed (weather that's in a coffee shop, or a play ground, or in the comfort of your own home) so we can meet each other face to face. This is the time for you to get to know me, and I get to find out all the little DETAILS  that you have been dreaming of! This is when I LET YOU TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT YOU EXPECT. I like to take detailed notes when we meet, to make sure I don't forget anything at the time of your session. (This is my favorite part!->) This is also the time for us to brainstorm about what kind of session you want? How your hair, makeup, lashes, and wardrobe will be. We can play around with any ideas you may have! If you don't have a hair or makeup person, I can recommend some for you! I have many contacts and resources at my disposal!

THE POINT IS - IT'S WHATEVER YOU WANT!

I love my work! I love meeting new people! And I love coming up with new creative ideas for you to have as UNIQUE of a session AS YOU ARE!

So let's get together, and plan your personalized session that is unique to you and your family!

*WARNING* This post contains images of Birth, and is for mature audiences ONLY. Readers may find these photos graphic. Thanks for stopping by, fellow photo lovers!

I have a special treat for you today, and it comes in the form of a cute newborn named Odessa. She came into this world on May 10th, 2016 weighing 8 pounds  4 ounces and measuring in at 21 inches long.

Her parents, invited me to take pictures of the birth at their home. What an honor to capture such a pivotal turning point and special moment in their lives. I know they will treasure these pictures forever.

Little Odessa is just as darling as can be. Capturing her little chubby cheeks, tiny feet,  and cute sweet face was so much fun. What a sweetheart!

Portland Birth Photographer | The Art of Birth

As a Birth Photographer in Portland Oregon, Your baby's birth is one of the most timeless and momentous occasions of your life. Whether it is your first or fifth child, no two births are ever alike. Nothing compares to the moment you meet your little one for the first time. The beautiful beginnings of a new family, new traditions, and a new life. Sadly, these memories can fade so quickly. I can barely remember what happened during the first hour after I delivered my son. Adrenaline and excitement clouds your memory. Birth photography helps capture & preserve these precious memories for you. Parents at that time are so focused on a million different things- the health of mom, the health of baby, the pain! Who wants to think about taking pictures at a time like this?! That's where I come in! Wouldn't you rather hold your partners hand during this special time, than be distracted by taking photographs?

I am there to capture your birth Story.

I am there to capture that special once in a life time moment, when you meet your little miracle for the first time. When you hear their first cry, when you finally get to hold them in your arms after months of anticipation.

I regret not hiring a birth photographer for my son's birth.

That's why hiring a birth photographer makes such great sense!  You are promised beautiful professional looking photos.....and of course a tear-jerking Birth Story Slide Show!

Here is an example!
