“I’ve always known that I wanted to be a mother, and so when the time finally felt right I couldn’t wait! I’ll never forget taking that pregnancy test and it showing the faintest 2nd line! I took a pregnancy test every morning for the next week just to make sure it was real! One thing that caught me by surprise was how much of a rollercoaster being pregnant was. There were days I loved being pregnant and others that felt so hard. Those hard days all became worth it though the day I met my son. It was such an incredible experience bringing him into this world and feeling that he was mine so immediately. Our first night with him I remember being so exhausted from labor and delivery and at the same time just so happy to be able to take care of him. That sentiment has held true over these past three months of his life. At times I’m beyond exhausted from the day of taking care of my sweet boy, but as soon as he’s asleep I find myself looking at pictures and videos from the day and looking forward to holding him and taking care of him when he’s awake again.
Being a mother has fulfilled me in a way I could never have imagined.
Anders is my first baby and so it was extra important to me to capture our first little bit at home while he was still so young. I love that I can look at the photos and remember what those first couple weeks were like.” Amber, Mother
“They were so easy going and fun to be around! I also photographed their birth so we had spent hours talking already. It felt like a day with friends just photographing their new addition! I absolutely adored the way their little babe would look at his parents. Even as a newborn he’d just stare straight into their eyes and was as calm and peaceful as can be.
Motherhood is my most favorite thing to capture! It flickers by so quickly and I feel, as a mother myself, that I notice the little details that are only there for a short time. Like the way their little arms hug around mom, the looks they give, the gentle touches to mom’s face or hair. There’s nothing I love more then sending a mom their photos and witnessing them seeing those special details captured forever.” Dana, Photographer
