Indianapolis Maternity Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography
Ya’ll, I had the MOST fun maternity session this week. Not that all my maternity clients aren’t amazing, but very rarely do I get pushed to do something totally outside my comfort zone. This session gave me a completely renewed sense of passion and energy. When I first spoke to Dawn on the phone about our session, I could tell she was a little nervous to just come out and say “hey, I’d love to get all sexified for my maternity session,” because I’m sure she didn’t want to make me uncomfortable, and that was super sweet of her, but I knew what she was getting at when she told me she wasn’t shy and had done some swimsuit modeling in the past. So, I just straight up said, “let’s do a boudoir-type session,” and she was like “yes!” and I was like, “yay!” Or, something like that, I can’t remember the details.
Onto the session, in walks Dawn and her husband Scot, first thought was “whoa, are they tall, and GORGEOUS!” I didn’t want to be one of the hundreds of people who undoubtedly asks if he played basketball, so I didn’t, and we got started and I made lots of requests for him to make himself shorter, which I’m sure he really appreciated. They were so fun and down to earth and just laid back about the whole session. Then, at one point it came up that Scot does actually play basketball. He played in the NBA for 11 years. Scot Pollard, a pretty impressive player (according to my Google search,) was an Indiana Pacer for a few years, and also won a championship with the Celtics in 2008 during his final year in the NBA. Obviously, I felt a little dumb that I didn’t even know who he was, but then again, I’m over here like “hooray sports, do the thing, win the point” so hopefully he wasn’t too insulted. What excited me more than basketball is the fact that Scot is also competing on this season of Survivor! He got back from filming in Cambodia in May, the season premiere airs on February 17th. I will definitely be tuning in.
Dawn and Scot met in Denver, they say they were in the right place at the right time and there was an immediate connection. They’ve been married for 2 years now, Scot has 3 beautiful children from a previous marriage, and he and Dawn are super excited to add to their brood.
Dawn was a complete natural in front of the camera, and Scot, well, Dawn was a complete natural in front of the camera. Yeah, I’ve got jokes. No really though, they were both amazing to work with. Dawn is simply stunning, and so very sweet, I had so much fun working with her. I can’t wait to see how beautiful their baby boy is, no doubt he’ll be a big guy! Without further ado, here’s a little teaser from the session. So far, I have it narrowed down to 100 favorites.
