If you have poked around for more than 30 seconds, you know by know that I absolutely love supporting families through birth and getting to tell their story with photographs. I love, specifically, when I get to be a doula for family and then also tell their story. It shows they have a great level of trust for me and we usually develop a strong, unique bond. But not all families are comfortable with or drawn to birth photography, so those families often choose to book a Newborn Lifestyle session with me. I was so excited to do Alistair's Fresh 48, but my camera had other plans and I quickly learned that having a backup camera is not just a "good idea" but a necessity... so don't worry... that mistake will never happen again, because I immediately bought a backup camera and fixed the other... what a lesson to learn! Between illnesses and hospital visits, our session ended up getting rescheduled multiple times. And that sucks. However, I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason and always work out... I am so glad we waited for these photos because we got some adorable interaction with this little dude who is almost a month old already! Plus I got to go back and see Little Man at one month old! I don't typically get to see my clients' babies outside of facebook after week 2. Also... side note... you do NOT need to have a perfect house for photos.. but umm WOW. This family's minimalistic decor made such a beautiful setting for their photos. The whole session felt so relaxing and stress free! I felt so spoiled!
