Jess and B are having a baby!
Our wonderful friends Jess and B are having their first little one this December. We couldn't be happier for them! See these photos bigger and prettier on Nathan's blog.
When we talked about the look for the shoot, Jess and I went directly to one of the most talented photographers who brings an artistic and timeless look to the whole genre of maternity photography, Sophie Phillips. We decided on a lovely location, out in nature and long, flowy dresses for her wardrobe. For props, we went went with less-is-more. Jess brought a little leather-bound book of poems that B had given her as a gift. I also made a flowery garland that I thought would add to the look. She saw it and said, "I get it. Fertility goddess." I said, "Totally! Anthro just put out a maternity line. And today we're shooting their catalog." Which I think we basically did.
My favorite shot from the day:
Nathan also took his camera-- a film camera! All the black and whites are film, as well as some of these color shots. I couldn't be happier with these shots. And I couldn't be happier for Jess and B! We can't wait to meet your new little one. Something tells me Baby Archer will be one adorable and talented kiddo.
