“I’ve always dreamed of being a mother, so when I found out at the beginning of the year that I was pregnant, I was beyond elated. She came into this world 10 days after her due date ~ we were obviously just itching to finally meet her. I knew the love would be instantaneous, but it was just far greater than I could ever have imagined. It’s a love like no other where I think my heart may just explode at any moment. And the cuddles around the clock are just the best, despite the lack of sleep. In the short week, we’ve had our Emmy Lou, motherhood has been the ultimate rollercoaster ride – abundance and deprivation, joy and despair, comfort and fear, gratitude and weariness, confidence and doubt. What a week it’s been, and boy, we’re so excited for what’s yet to come.” Christie, New Mother
“Christie and Jan are dream clients truly, the mother Christie is a dear friend whom I have known for many years. That’s what made our session all the sweeter. Getting to document this important milestone for someone so special to me was such a wonderful gift to give. Knowing her backstory, her journey to finding her life partner, and to motherhood just makes my heart want to burst with joy for her and their beautiful adventure ahead.
I am obsessed with motherhood and just adore documenting this journey for women. Since I became a mother myself 3.5 years ago my world changed in the most beautiful way and I discovered the importance of documenting family. My own daughter Jasmine is by far my most photographed subject. The journey of motherhood is one of my favourite things to capture and I can see myself doing this well into old age.” Zelda, Photographer
