A few months back I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous beauty as she was getting ready to welcome her third child! Her first two are girls, and was now expecting a boy. A boy!! So when the forsythias were in bloom, we travelled just outside her back door so we could include her two beautiful girls in this maternity session. We then went to a nearby lake where the wind was blowing ever so slightly. We shot a few pictures there, and then found this gorgeous stone church and we knew we just had to stop.
Little baby Jax is now 2 months old and I just had the pleasure of photographing him a few days ago. Those images will be coming soon, but first, here he is still cookin’, and the little sisters who are so excited to welcome him into their world!
Maternity sessions are some of my favorite sessions. There’s a sweet, soft, loving look on the momma’s face, and I love the excitement that swirls around the upcoming event. Add really fun big sisters, and there it is …. my heart just melts.

Maggie Bokor is a real gem. She’s one of those lovely people who speaks from her heart, who is in touch with her soul and is in tune with all that surrounds her. She is talented beyond belief as an artist, jewelry designer and creator, writer, marketer, Nia dance instructor, Reiki practitioner, musician, singer, songwriter … oh, the list, I’m sure, could go on and on. I’ve known her for years — we’ve collaborated on projects several times, and she’s my good friend.
Inspired by nature, Maggie’s jewelry is organic, timeless and elegant. She pours her heart and soul into each piece she creates, and it shows in the beautiful sterling silver earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings she produces. I love that she ties each of her lines to a natural element, and that each line is meant to awaken a feeling of self empowerment, strength, and serenity. One of my favorites, her Echo collection, arouse feelings of connection. But instead of me telling you all about this and her other lovely collections, visit her website and see for yourself. (Maggie and I have had a few model sessions and you’ll see much of my work on her website. More on that in another blog post.)
Maggie’s beautiful work is available across the country in many exclusive galleries and shops, including Abacus here in Portland and Archipelago in Rockland. She makes it easy, too, by offering on-line shopping.
My own line … whaaaaat?????? Get this …. Maggie is in the process of designing a line of jewelry specifically for me to offer my brides. Imagine that! I’m so darn excited!
So a couple of weeks back I spent a few hours with Maggie at SoPo Art Studios in South Portland where she works her magic. It was a joy to capture her as she worked the details — sketching a design, crafting the clay, smoothing the rough edges, adding gemstones, soldering, polishing and packaging.
Be sure to visit her website and reach out. Like I said, Maggie is a real gem and her jewelry is special and unique. As is she.
