“These photographs were taken at my home , just days after my son was born. Having had a difficult birth, I was wary to be photographed so quickly, but our amazing photographer Olya encouraged me to memorialize these tender, early moments with my son and I am so glad that she did. Even a week later he had already grown and changed greatly, and I am so happy that we captured his true newborn self.
Taking these photographs at home, we were able to feel comfortable and familiar. Looking back , I feel that they truly reflect our everyday lives and capture the spaces we spend our days, where my son and I get to know each other. Those first few days and weeks become a blissful blur, yet I have these photographs to remember them forever. We both knew our entire lives that we wanted to have a family. Not so long ago, we were told that having a child of our own was not in the stars for us. We endured the hardest journey of our lives and in the eleventh hour God blessed us with our miracle baby. Having our son has allowed us to watch all our hopes and dreams come true. We celebrate our greatest gift every day, as we get to watch each other grow into the parents we always wanted to be. It truly is the most magical time of our lives.” Madeline, Mother
“The session took place in the couples beautiful and warm home where they spent much time dreaming of one day holding their long awaited for son. The beautiful connection between the couple was so special to witness. The couple’s journey to parenthood has been very challenging and to see them finally holding their baby in their arms was such a humbling experience.
Motherhood can at times seem like a blur, full of sleepless nights and a swirling pool of endless chores. Yet there are moments of stillness, where you feel like you can stay this way forever. Moments of taking in a deep breath and being present. You take in their scent, feel their soft skin against yours, look deeply into their eyes, and sense their calm breath as they settle into your arms and drift off to sleep. For a moment you close your eyes to indulge. Photography allows me to encapsulate such intimate and beautiful moments.” Olya, Photographer
