I am honored to enter the most precious place: my client’s home to meet their brand new baby! I met this sweet family a few years ago when their oldest was 6 months old. Now he is an older brother. You can’t tell from these photos but we were set up in the bathroom floor. Image me standing on the bathtub to capture some of these overhead. It was the best light in the house…and the great thing is you would never know. Holding this sweetness definitely gave me baby fever. It is amazing how fast they grow, as I just placed my own 5 month old down for bed. She was this little once. Mama, hold onto these new days. Snuggle them longer. Thank you for the honor of capturing these for you! I can’t wait to watch you grow little one!
Kimberly has been my doula (natural birthing coach) for my past two deliveries. Kimberly’s career is supporting mother’s as they labor through bringing their child into the world. Kimberly watches mother’s unite with their own children, all while there was a hole in her own heart as she hasn’t known her own birth mom. A precious DNA ancestry gift from a client, began to open the door for Kimberly and her birth mom to be reconnected. The test connected her to a cousin and eventually to her mom. 40 years later, they are united! When she asked me to take photos of their reunion birth, I was honored. Kimberly’s story of adoption, how she found her birth mom is simply beautiful. I love how God is true to His word: “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Just like birth stories, the long time of laboring is quickly overlooked and forgotten, as a mother embraces her beautiful baby. I pray this too would be for Kimberly and her mom–that their togetherness now would overshadow the years apart! Kimberly shared her story here and I know that it is well worth reading. Thank you Kimberly for the honor and joy of capturing these for you and your mom.
When a pregnant woman glows…it isn’t because it is August in East Tennessee, but because she is absolutely stunning! I loved everything about this session! The morning couldn’t of been anymore perfect. And Hannah. Beautiful. I absolutely can’t wait to meet their sweet little man in a couple of weeks!
Stunning. This beautiful mama to be is absolutely lovely! This is my favorite spot to take photos and this family loved it too! It wasn’t too hot early morning and it was the perfect place to celebrate their coming bundle! I have been taking photos of this family since their little guy was 6 mo old…I absolutely can’t wait to meet little boy #2 in September!
Mama and her sweet little mini me joined me in the park for a little morning session. It was perfect! These two are just precious! Look at those eyes!! It was a beautiful morning to capture love between a mama and her child! Mommy and me sessions are my favorite!!
“Her children rise up & call her blessed.” It is very clear that these women love their mama and each other. What a rainy day that made us enter the most cozy spot! They laughed at each other, embraced each other and you could definitely tell they were family (red hair and all!) I love how unique these women were and even how they interacted you could see their personalities come out (whether their sister called it out of them)!
All boy: dirt, sweat, chasing him around the park, getting too close to the water, jumping from the playground…this session certainly showed me the adventerous spirit of little boys my daughter’s age. Mom & me were worn out after this session at the park. I told her she was super mom!! It wouldn’t be a toddler session without wiping tears and little hands. Love this little guy and his sweet mom!
It’s been a growing season!! My family is growing as we are adding a sweet little bundle this July! Our other one turned two and continues to amaze us with smarts, sweet spirit and how big they grow! My Mops (Mothers of Preschoolers) group is growing and we have a fabulous theme for next year, “Be You Bravely!” Our garden is growing with each rainfall. To watch little seeds (both literally & figuratively) grow and flourish is such an incredible blessing!! I have been one busy mama & wife. And thanks to a fabulous camera I am capturing this growth on film!
