“Since Logan is our first baby, I am still learning the ropes, as they say. Motherhood has been easy at times, and trying at other times. Throughout my pregnancy, I was so nervous that I wouldn’t know how to take care of him. It was quite a surprise to see how quickly the “motherly instinct” kicked in! I think motherhood means giving up pieces of yourself, but the return you get back is tenfold. The biggest thing I have learned is patience, with myself and with Logan, although, if you ask my husband I am too hard on myself. I think feelings of doubt and insecurity for first time moms are quite natural. We just want to be the best we can be for our children.
The experience with Liz was fabulous, as she is really laid back and makes you feel comfortable while being photographed. One of the reasons I chose Liz is because of how light her style is and her use of natural light. I also appreciated the fact that she traveled to our home for our newborn session. These photographs were important to me because I wanted to make sure I captured our little one in the early stages of his life. It is such an exciting time but also a bit of a blur so documenting him and all his tiny features was important me.” Lacy, Mother
“It was such a joy to meet and photograph Lacy and Blake. I first met them in October for their maternity session and absolutely adored them! I couldn’t wait to hear the news that baby Logan had entered the world and to see them as parents. Lacy and Blake were at such ease. I could tell parenthood came easily to them, and they were such naturals in how they handled their sweet boy. Logan didn’t want to miss the party so he chose to be awake for most of the session, but was so calm, taking in everything around him. I love these types of sessions as you can really see the connection between mother and child, as their eyes lock and the love in the room is almost palpable.
Photographing motherhood, specifically newborn sessions, is one of my biggest passions. I am lucky enough to be one of the first people to meet, hold, and love on these new babies. It is such an honor to be invited into a client’s home, catch a glimpse of their daily life with a brand new baby, and capture some truly memorable moments. The way dad cautiously maneuvers his new baby around giving him the most tender kisses, how mom snuggles her baby so close you can almost hear her silent plea to make time slow down, all the details that were laboriously poured into the nursery, making sure it is the perfect space for their little one to grow up. These are the moments I love to capture and make my heart swell.” Liz, Photographer
