The moment you first meet him/her. The moment you are holding your baby in your arms for the first time. The look on your husband’s face when he’s watching the two most important people in his life come together. Tears of joy. Love. Warmth. Tenderness. The complete and indescribable utter happiness. Everything is perfect now. That little person that has been growing inside of you, is making their debut scene soon. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have that moment captured?
Your baby’s first day of life… how will you remember it?
There is no greater honor for me than to be invited to witness the birth of a child. We dedicate all our efforts to ultimately giving you pictures that will allow you to relive that day each time you look at them. There isn’t much I can say about the journey of carrying a child in my womb for nine months and giving birth. I have yet to be blessed with the opportunity to witness such miracle and have a child of my own. But what I have been blessed with is an intense love for human life. A desire to for others to see the beauty in the most natural and extraordinary things that most people overlook or pay little attention to. I believe every step of our lives should be celebrated. Starting with the day that you become a mother and your baby has his/her’s first breath. Because along the way, we always look back at where we came from. I can’t count how many time I have sat in my parent’s house looking through albums of me as a child. Wanting to know what life was like then. Seeing how much my mom and dad have done for me and how they valued those little moments. Like the day I was released from the hospital after being in an incubator for a week. They all joke that I looked like E.T. and after seeing myself… I have to agree. What a small and skinny earthling I was. I can bet you anything that if way back then, birth sessions were popular, my mother would of definitely had one. She documented my life, and I am eternally grateful that she took the time and energy to do so. Why I am sharing this story with you? Years down the road, your baby will be an adult and maybe like me, they will be curious. They will want to see the love. They will want to know the stories. And what better way to start. Photographing births for me is all about telling a story. Your baby’s story.
To those that have never heard of birth photography it may sound a bit alarming at first. They may assume that its very graphical and indecent. If that is your reaction, please, please take a look at one of the featured birth session slideshows. Throughout the whole session, there is are no private parts showing and every mom-to-be can be certain that we will try our best to photograph them in a way that will only make them look beautiful. Birth is beautiful. I have a lot of moms that look at the slideshows and they say, “Oh but that woman is gorgeous, I would never look like that! She doesn’t even look like she’s in labor!” . Future mom, they all said the same thing to me when we first met. We all see ourselves in the mirror with a magnifying glass. But the truth is, you are beautiful. Pregnant women are all radiant. Even when they don’t feel so. Because what we all see is the miracle of how months ago you were just you, and now its you and a tiny little human being inside of you. That makes us all gush over you and awe at what a marvel that is.
If you are contemplating this kind of session, rest assure in my 100 percent guarantee… you will not be disappointed. As much as I love shooting them, you will love the result. I have prepared a FAQ section for all those questions that may be running through your mind if you are considering booking a birth session. There is also a testimonial page with some of my previous mom’s and what they have written to me about their experience with having a birth session. If I could only shoot one thing for the rest of my life, this would be it. Although it means that I am on-call like a doctor and my life would depend on those baby’s that are delivered schedule, I would be the happiest girl alive. Simply because I know I give each and every family something they will never forget. Something special. The kind of gift that makes them cry and laugh while they sit with me and they first look at their pictures. And that for me, is the greatest reward.
