My name is Jayme Okerblom and I’m so pleased you are considering Miette Photography. I am a long-tenured University Park baby photographer and University Park maternity photographer, with over 25 years of experience and a background in high fashion and art photography. This informs my style, which is timeless, elegant, and authentic. Your photos will look as relevant in ten years as they do on the day you get them.
I love working with families and watching them grow and change. We start with maternity photos, then newborn, six-month photos, one-year photos, and family photography later on. I become close to my repeat clients, and many have been with me for a long time. When you’re choosing a photographer to work with your kids, you need to think about their safety. Some photographers pose babies in trendy ways or with questionable props. This could put your child at risk. I studied under a NICU nurse and trained on how to safely handle newborns, especially their fragile necks and heads. I’m also a mother of two and a child advocate, so safety is a top priority for me in every session.
If you’re wanting maternity photos, remember to look for a photographer that will keep the focus on you. If there are a lot of props or a visually cluttered background, the eye is distracted. I compose my photos in a simple and elegant way, always with complementary soft lighting. Before your University Park maternity photo session, we will discuss what you could wear, which might range from elegant or laid back to sexy and glamorous. If you’re considering semi-nude photos, please take a look at my post, “5 Questions to Ask Before Booking A Semi-Nude Maternity Photo Session.”
Remember, almost any person with a decent camera can get a few good photos, but you deserve more than a handful. An experienced photographer offers the best quality with every picture, and encourage a lot of looks and poses, and offer high quality with every photo. I provide around 80 final images and all of them are keepers!
If you’re looking for an experienced and sensitive University Park baby photographer or University Park maternity photographer, please give me a call 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.
