Heather Wilkinson Photography
Hello! My name is Heather Wilkinson from Heather Wilkinson Photography in Shreveport, Louisiana. I specialize in maternity, newborns, and weddings…but my absolute favorite is maternity, because there is nothing more beautiful than a glowing momma-to-be. I would love to say that this session was meticulously planned months in advance, but that would just be a big fib! With only one week of planning, my original plan for a woodsland-themed maternity session failed after searching for a mossy forest wonderland turned up nothing. I decided to alter the original plan slightly and go with an ode to mother nature. Many of the props were everyday décor in my studio. My gorgeous momma-to-be was a former co-worker and the moment I heard she was pregnant I just had to have her model! My hard-working assistant, Dominique Hankins, helped me with posing, scene setup, and anything else that I asked for! This session allowed me and my assistant to learn a little more about the prevention and treatment of chigger bites; hot Louisiana summer heat and a tall grassy field will get you some bug bites, but it will also create a beautiful nature styled session – just don’t forget the bug spray!
