What a wonderful way to end 2015, with the birth of a baby I have been blessed to photograph from the very beginning.
Last summer I was contacted by this very nice lady, who wanted my help in photographing her pregnancy from the announcement, to the gender reveal, baby shower, maternity through to the birth of her little one and of course little ones newborn portraits.
I was so excited to be able to play a peripheral role to this family's journey. Such an honor and a privilege.
So for the last several months I have enjoyed watching this family grow, momma and daddy, take on their new roles.
The birth of this baby was by and far one of the most powerful experiences of my life. This momma was a trooper, so amazing and just stunned by her ability to listen to her body and have a baby. Her husband was a rock start support for her. Just amazing, so thoughtful and responsive to her needs. Such an awe inspiring event to watch unfold behind the lens.
Then we have the star of the show, Little Miss Scarlett, a darling sweet heart. Who actually hates to be touched when she is asleep! So kinda my nemesis in the newborn photography world. Two sessions later we got some shots of sleeping beauty and nestled in her name sake color no less!
A huge shout out to Summer Birth Services for being an awesome doula and friend to work with. If you or someone you know is looking for birth services either from a doula or from a photographer please contact us! http://summerbirthservices.com
