celebrity Brooke Burke

“I know that being pregnant is an incredibly challenging time, and most of you are probably not feeling so great about yourselves. But, if you can get past that and see the beauty in your bump, it is so worth capturing.

I am talking about pregnancy photos. I had a great experience shooting with Linnea Lenkus, who is one of the best celebrity portrait photographers around, and she specializes in maternity photography.

It is such a personal thing, but she made it so comfortable and intimate that I have had two sessions with her during both of my pregnancies. I will return to her again to photograph my son. My first session was with Neriah and Sierra while I was pregnant with Rain. I went back several weeks ago with David to shoot Rain and my growing belly. Once my son has arrived, Linnea will shoot him and then I will have a whole story. You can take a look at my photo shoot at this address.

I really hope you take the time to capture your pregnancy on film. It is priceless. Do not wait until the last month either, because you could miss your chance if you go into labor early.That happened to me with Neriah and I really regretted it. “

“Her artistry lies not only in her incredibly keen eye but in her ability to create a wonderfully warm and hospitable environment.  She made the session so much fun that I could relax and she could capture the best of me.  It really shows in the shots she took.  Thank you Linnea.  I will be back.”

-Gerry R.

“Linnea is one of the most amazing photographers I have come across.  We’ve been to a couple other less expensive studios, but they don’t compare to the beautiful artwork that Linnea creates.  She is so personable and is able to evoke such emotions from you to create such personal images.  We’ve been to Linnea for three sittings now; for a maternity shoot and two subsequent newborn shoots.  We have so many portraits from these sittings everywhere throughout our home;  two in our living room, three in our hallway and two albums on display.  To anyone who thinks the price is a deterrent, all I can say is that we enjoy her work every day.  What she captures is really priceless.”
