The journey to parenthood looks different for everyone. Some arrive quickly with a clear and easy path. Some try for months, for years, through heart ache and disappointment. Some arrive by surprise and others are still trying to find their way. To get to this point where the belly grows and the excitement builds, it can feel like a triumphant chapter to celebrate and remember.
To be welcomed into the intimate home life of an expecting couple, followed by the arrival of their new baby is an honor that still moves me deeply. To be photographed in your own home, among your treasured life’s collection, surrounded by your favorite people is just… magical. To have a stunnnnning portrait of yourself as a pregnant Mama to look back on is priceless.
The Motherhood Experience is a two part photography package. We first photograph your life as an expecting mother- a maternity session to remember this time that has been for so long. Whether it is arrival of your first baby, or your fourth, each milestone is to be honored before you shift into the new.
The Natural Newborn comes next- a photography experience that follows your morning through feedings, burping, diaper changes, outfit changes, snuggles, swaddles, sleeping and taking it all in. When is the last time you were able to just be with your family. Two hours of uninterrupted family time. No distractions, no work calls, no errands. Just absorbing the sounds, the rhythms and the love that connects your family.
My time spent with this family was just magical. We wanted soft neutrals, simple and clean. She was inspired by a Style Guide I put together for her session, but also open to try new portrait images with strips of fabric and sheets.
