“When I was looking for a mother and baby to model for the workshop, I reached out to my friend in Southern California who is also a photographer, and she suggested this beautiful momma and baby since she had worked with them before. I’m so thankful she connected me with Val, because she and baby Sky were just perfect. They were not only beautiful, but just such a wonderful vision of motherhood; that closeness and intimacy I wanted to provide for the attendees. This particular mother and baby girl exuded that magnetic energy; the kind that soothes and comforts and is a gift to witness and preserve. What an incredible experience for the attendees.
Oh I just adore preserving each season for mothers in photographic form. These days with little ones are so golden, yet so fleeting, and to show mothers the beauty and connection that lives there inside their motherhood, is such a necessary way for me to get to connect with them, and also show them how valuable they truly are. I love the opportunities for connection photography affords me. As we meet and get to know one another, it is an opportunity to share with other mothers my own trials and victories through motherhood with the hopes that they might also be prompted to share their own. Sharing our journeys with one another, our beautiful truths, this is what breaks down walls, forms connections, creates a solidarity between us that says, you are never alone in what you are going through… let me offer you a hug or let us rejoice in your triumphs.” Alexandria, Photographer
