There is something positively enchanting about Motherhood. When I was really delving into what I wanted my newborn work to embody, I instantly knew I wanted it to be so much more than just about the newborn child. You see, newborns are precious and sweet and you could add just about any cutesy adjective in the mix but Motherhood… parenthood is a powerful thing. And the bond. There is quite nothing like that bond. We all love differently and in different ways. Families are all vastly different yet there is one commonality. Soul. Soul and love and commitment. And the ability to tell a story-a story that is just beginning. What a privilege it is to help do that from the very beginning. And if I am truly blessed, I will get to watch these babies grow. As a mother and a business owner it just embodies all that I love.
This sweet family welcomed their first child in the family this spring and I have been so excited to share. I have been quietly testing the waters in lifestyle photography to make sure it was truly where my heart is. If my heart isn’t in it- I can’t commit a million percent. I am the committed type. It took some reflection but coming back to these images reaffirmed that. I just want to capture connection. It doesn’t matter how or where. It just needs to be authentic. The tenderness and pride this Mama had written all over her when she looked upon her newborn was all that and more.
