Babies aren’t always born the way we hope they will be. C-sections happen and NICU stays happen. Sometimes what is a happy time is also an extremely difficult time. Sometimes that’s the case even when a birth goes exactly as we had hoped.

We take all of these experiences and feelings with us, and we process them, and they are part of our journeys, and of our babies’ stories.

It’s so fun to look back at this family photo shoot from last winter!

Little boys in superhero pajamas. Holiday traditions. Blankies and cribs. Dirt and rocks and leaves. Chocolate milk. Stories and snuggles and family time at home. ♥

I’m so excited to be offering FREE maternity sessions for families who book a winter (December, January, February) newborn session by October 6, 2016! Welcoming a new tiny human is a big change for a family. Maternity sessions to me are about capturing what life is like for a family before their new baby arrives. It’s such a special time!
