My name is Jayme Okerblom and I am so glad you are considering Miette Photography. I am a long-tenured Highland Park baby photographer and Highland Park maternity photographer, with over 25 years of experience and a background in high fashion and art photography. This helps me create timeless, elegant, authentic photos that look as wonderful in 20 years as they do on the day you hang them on your wall.
One of my favorite things is working with a family as it grows and changes. I love starting with maternity photos, then newborns, six-month photos, one-year photos, and family photos. My repeat clients become friends, and I have many who have been with me for years.
A Safe Photography Session For Your Newborn
One critical consideration when choosing a baby photographer is the safety of your infant. Some local photographers use trendy poses and props that could put your infant at risk. I went to a NICU nurse and trained with her on how to safely handle infants, especially their delicate necks and heads. I’m a mother of two and an advocate for kids, so safety gets my full attention at every session.
Maternity Photoshoots That Are Elegant and Simple
If you’re considering maternity pictures, remember that the focus should be you. Too many props and a busy background distract and move the eye away from that focus. I keep the photo compositions simple and elegant, with complementary soft lighting — my style definitely leans toward minimalistic. When I meet or speak with my clients before their maternity photo session, we talk about what to wear, too, which can range from sporty and casual to sexy and glamorous. If you’re considering semi-nude photos, please be sure to read my post, “5 Questions to Ask Before Booking A Semi-Nude Maternity Photo Session.”
Almost any photographer can manage to take a handful of good photos during a session, but you deserve more than a few. An experienced photographer will create lots of looks and poses, and offer high quality with every photo. I provide between 60-80 final images and all of them are keepers! If you’re looking for a highly-experienced photographer to help you make amazing memories, please give me a call (or text) at 214-864-5787 or use the website contact form. I look forward to speaking with you about how I can best help you decide on a photographer to create heirloom-quality photos for your family.
