There is something absolutely magical about lifestyle newborn photography. Getting to capture families in their own safe haven, the place they do life – the place they first bring their babies home to – it is all so beautiful to me. And it is for this very reason I quickly knew I wanted to specialize in this type of newborn photography, and gave up my photography studio altogether.
It is also the reason I decided to quit my full time corporate job, teach myself photography, and start my own full time photography business. See, I am not one of those that dreamed of being a photographer since I was little. In fact, it never even crossed my mind until I had my daughter and hired a newborn photographer myself. Unfortunately that experience was not a good one – from the actual session itself to the entire client experience. But I’m truly so thankful for that now. It is because of that experience, that the idea of becoming a photographer myself entered my mind. I just knew that I could teach myself photography and would make sure my client experience was the absolutely best it could be. I would run my business the way I, as a mother, would want to be treated from start to finish. Fast forward 8 years later, my photography business is thriving and I get to shoot exactly what I love to shoot – newborns and motherhood.
I adore this session in particular because you can actually FEEL the love through the photos. This beautiful couple struggled a very long time with multiple miscarriages, two failed IVF treatments, and miraculously finally conceived naturally. It is truly such an honor to capture images like these for all of my families, as each family has their own special and unique story. So to have a very small part of that, knowing these will be images they will be sure to always cherish, I’m forever grateful.
