I love photographing newborns. I love being a mama. I wish I could have had someone follow me around with a camera the first few months of being a mom. It's such a fleeting time and you're so tired that it feels like a big haze. And suddenly they're six or two and talking your ear off. So, I try, in a short two hours, to be that photographer for others. Capturing some posed and some natural moments...and even in the posed moments, looking for real stuff. Because that's what makes me happy. Life. The real stuff.
Thank you to all the families who've invited me into their homes to capture such a beautifully exhausting time of life. And congrats to Steph and Darren. Your babes are beautiful and sweet and I adore them!
