Michigan Maternity Photographer // “Spoil The Mamas” Maternity Event!

This past weekend we had a fun-filled maternity event for all of our #hetlermamas.  Pregnancy can be rough and no one knows how much until they actually go through it!  Since Joe and I are adding our second baby this summer, we thought it would be fun to spoil our expectant mamas with a free mini photo session and a fun goodie bag!  I think we accomplished that!

We also used this event as training for our team…..to warm up for the upcoming portrait and wedding season.  Because it was so quick paced, it proved to be challenging, but everyone walked away learning a thing or two…..!  All in all, I’d say it was a success!

Here are some photos that I took of these lovely ladies……minus one who took some announcement photos we can’t share yet.  Soon enough!!

I photographed several of these couple’s weddings in the past..so it was so fun to see them again and watch their family grow!

Making sure our team continues to grow in experience and talent is SO important to us.  People may think we are crazy for doing free events, but what’s wrong with blessing people and learning at the same time?!  I’d say nothing!  I can’t wait to see all of these new little ones…!
