So, those that know my work, whom have possibly visited my Instagram: millie_dee_photo or my website: www.milliedeephotography.com, know that I am a studio photographer. I love love love my studio in the Landing section of Roxbury Township, New Jersey. I offer maternity there, along with newborn and headshots and seasonal Holiday photos as well.
Directly across from my studio is a park. A nice sized park with three softball fields, a walking path and a playground for little ones. When this mom asked me for outdoor portraits, I hesitated, but thought, why not? Not only do we have this beautiful park across the street, but the back of the mall I'm located in has a beautiful rock wall and little overgrown path that would be perfect for some portraits. So we planned it.
Mom came in, had her hair and makeup done by the fantastically talented @Desiree Tunnerro and we headed outside as it was a gorgeous spring day out.
As we're in the overgrown path taking some pictures, we can hear the landscapers getting closer and closer and we were close to an area that they needed to landscape, so we ended up moving to the rock wall.
At the rock wall, we could see a couple of the barbers from the barbershop on their break, so I asked one of them to help out with a standard dress flip. What a good sport, Thanks, Steve @fresh cutz barbershop! He had no idea what i was asking him to do, but he did an awesome job with a fabric toss! Right after that, two guys had told us that they were getting ready to open up the sewer line and that it was going to smell really bad really quickly. So....we ended up moving again.
We had a gown change and then we headed across the street into the back part of the park with all of the gorgeous greenery. Don't you think, there was some Dude just kind of walking in the back of some of the photos...(really??). This day was comical. This mama and I couldn't help but giggle through the entire session over what was happening around us.
We took some photos then walked a bit to the other side of the park for a few more, then we ended the session, time was up and we took alot of gorgeous photos. As we're getting mom settled into the back of my car, we're realizing there were probably 10 ticks if there was one embedded in the gown! Oh No! as soon as i parked, i had her strip out of the dress. (yes, she had a layer underneath the gown so she wasn't naked), but I didn't want it on her body any longer than it had to be.
We checked her, and I stored the gown outside and ripped the ticks out before bringing it to get washed. This was a such a memorable and fun session with this gorgeous mama, who was celebrating her second pregnancy in these portraits.
My only regret is not getting more behind the scenes photos of everything that was going on around us, sometimes what goes on behind the scenes could be its own photo session in itself.

Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
