“Ooh Spring, we feel you! New beginnings float through the crisp air. It is such a wonderful time ~ new life; hopes, dreams and endless possibility! Meeting this young family was such a treat! I loved spending a beautiful spring morning with them in their light filled Bay Area home and speaking to this beautiful mama about their new life with their 3mo old daughter Emma and their hopes and dreams for their future together!! I had such a wonderful morning with Jeanne, Erik and their firstborn little girl. They are so calm … so kind … and head over heels in love with sweet Emma! The way they looked at her .. and the way they looked at each other was so incredibly moving!
I think one of the reasons that I enjoy motherhood photography so much (aside from the artistic element) is the opportunity to spend time with such wonderful mothers. It is honestly hard to leave! I love hearing all about them … how they met their spouse… how they made their way to the Bay Area … and how they started their family. It really is so special to be let into people’s lives like this. It is this connection that drives me. It is this vulnerability and the willingness to share that makes me so grateful to cross paths with these women! They inspire me on so many levels!!” Tara, Photographer
