Tell your Motherhood Story...
A letter from the photographer....
Sweet, Mama Bear!
I'm so glad you're here. Thank you for taking a moment to visit Little Bear and learn how I will work to enhance your birth experience.
When you prepare for the birth of your child, you do a lot of research. You want the best of the best for your Little Bear! From cribs to swings, bottle feeding or breast, hospital birth or home, OB or Midwife, doula or no doula, you have a ton of options. The same goes for birth photography. There are tons of talented birth photographers to choose from. So what makes Little Bear special?
Hi, I'm Jaimie Zaki, and I own and operate Little Bear Services LLC, providing birth support and birth photography in New Jersey. When I think about the importance of birth photography, I think about my own births. Out of three births, the only one I didn't have professional photos of was the first. Looking back, I believe that having photos of the special moments during my son's birth would have allowed me to better process the sequence of events and find peace in my birth story. For the two births I do have photos of, I reflect often on those moments and feel a sense of warmth and joy. Seeing moments that I had forgotten even occurred is so special every time.
I am here to do just that for you... I'm here to capture the sweet, silly, wild, powerful, tender moments that come with the birth of a new baby. In addition to being a skilled photographer, my nursing background and doula training allow me to provide you with professionalism and a unique understanding of the birth space. I understand how sacred this space is and how vital it is to only have people who you are comfortable with and who understand how birth tends to progress and flow.
Additionally, because of my doula and lactation support training, I offer a variety of support add ons as a convenient option for my clients. Some families are limited with the amount of guests allowed in their birth space, or prefer to keep that number minimal. Because of the option to add on Doula Support, you can get "two for one"! This is special, also, as it means we are able to develop a connected relationship prior to your birth so that when it's "game day", you are able to fully relax and trust me. Support is the key in having a positive birth experience. Photography helps you reflect on that experience.
I'm so excited to meet with you and chat about which photo and/or support package would fit your family's needs the most. Let me know when your sweet little bear is expected to arrive and let's meet for a complementary consultation!
What are you waiting for?!
