We will be welcoming baby number 4 to our family in early April of 2018, and we are so thrilled to have another baby in the house so soon...!! This baby and my last baby will be only 15 months apart, and I'm sure will be the best of friends when they grow up...I can't wait to watch yet another sibling bond flourish. Motherhood has been this crazy, incredible journey for me, and it's such a pleasure to be able to share little bits of it with you all!
My husband snapped a few photos of me the other day, at 20 weeks along (halfway). I'm so thankful for him, he can always get those genuine smiles out of me, even when I'm not really "into" pictures. And this new dress? Yeah, made me feel really pretty...and the Hunter boots made a perfect addition.
There is nothing like finding a good deal on something you really want, right before the holidays. This weekend is the weekend to do a lot of that shopping. I am looking to score on a carpet cleaner and an instapot, because apparently that is what you get really excited about as an adult...
I have come up with some really good deals for this year's sale on photography sessions, and I hope you can take advantage of one of these!! All session fees must be paid in full by the end of the weekend for the discount via PayPal. Birth Story sessions and Doula services excludes the due date months of April and May, and Mommy & Me sessions can be scheduled any time in May or June. All the sales are listed below for you, and linked to details:
This mama contacted me about documenting her scheduled cesarean section, and to show everyone that every birth truly matters, and that each one worthy of beautiful photographs to tell their story. Having an 'empowering birth' is really in the eye of the beholder, and will look different for each family; This birth was so incredibly empowering for this couple, after their first birth ended in an emergency c-section. I am beyond elated for them on the arrival of their second baby, a healthy boy! Everyone was so calm in the O.R., and this little man came out so quietly, and so gently. I knew mom was nervous when she didn't hear an immediate big cry...but when he finally did let one big cry out, the tears came flowing. He was quickly weighed, measured, and wrapped up, ready to be given to a very excited mom (with the nurse's steady hand to help). Once we were back in the recovery room, she gave him his first feeding, and he was a nursing champ! After waiting for an hour before any visitors could come in, their daughter was finally allowed to come in to meet her new little brother, and let me tell you...Total cuteness overload!!!! Just take a peek for yourself.
I will be saying goodbye to my dearly-loved home studio soon, but I am going out with a big BANG and hosting these awesome Holiday Pajama mini sessions for all the adorable littles I have photographed over the years!!! ...Don't you worry though, this doesn't mean I am not doing photography anymore, it just means that I am still searching for the perfect studio for me, and my art. So come join me for my very last mini session here, and help me say goodbye to this beloved space that has been home to my natural light studio now for nearly 3 years!
These 15 minute sessions include an all-white simple setup, and 3 digital images with the fee. Any additional images are only $20 [for this mini session only]. These sessions are just for the kids (sorry parents, I know you really wanted to show off those adult holiday onesies, huh? Haha). I so look forward to seeing you all there soon...Times available are listed on my Facebook page, pinned to the top post. You can also email me for availability: firstname.lastname@example.org
Much love to you all, and happy Holidays!!
One of the biggest joys of this job is watching loving couples become parents.
You can feel the anticipation, the excitement, the anxiety, and the fear of the unknown. The even better part? Being able to see how they change from the maternity session, to the newborn session; how having a baby has transformed them this early in parenthood.
I am currently booking 2018 maternity | birth | newborn stories,
and would love to tell yours...let's chat! email@example.com
What are all the things in a month that you could skip out on in
order to afford something that you value...Target or mall trips? Movie Theater tickets? Eating out at restaurants? Getting your nails or hair done? Going out to concerts? Going to the tanning bed? The HBO, Starz, Hulu, and Netflix account?
Mine was that fancy quad shot vanilla latte from Wake Up Call:
At roughly $5 per day, at 30 days a month...that was $150 a month! *eek!*
My basic Birth Photography package is $1,200; 25% is due at booking as a non-refundable retainer, plus 9 months of $100 payments, and BAM! You got yourself a birth photographer. Even better? Sign up for a free Gift Registry, and let your family and friends chip-in to make it even more affordable for you! Need a doula too? I got you covered! Birth Photographer + Doula client discount...does it get any easier? I think not.
If professional birth photography is something that you truly value,
it is not out of reach, I promise! It is so important to have these memories professionally documented, and I truly believe it should be an available option for anyone and EVERYONE. I can make it possible with one of my flexible,
no-interest payment plans. I would love to chat more about all the different payment options and packages available, contact me today:
If there ever was an 'ideal' home birth, this would have been it!
Mom & dad labored peacefully together in their room, while the midwives occasionally checked in on them to check heart tones of baby, and to see how mom was progressing; Hands-off, intuitive, peaceful, family-centered. This mama honestly did not look, nor act, like she was late in labor! The midwives and I went back downstairs to get a snack and to chat a little bit, while giving the family some space to labor alone, but then we heard pounding on the ceiling: baby was coming out!!!!
We flew up the stairs, and quietly shuffled into the master bedroom, where we found her so focused on breathing her baby down, and out. Their 3rd baby boy was born in water, surrounded by so much love, and his two big brothers even got to witness it; Such a cool experience for them, and me. And look at that sweet midwife's face!!! It says it all: she LOVES her job (Spokane River Midwives). Every birth is such an honor to be a part of, each story so unique and beautiful. Congratulations to the 'G' fam!!
This gorgeous couple recently got married, and the honeymoon phase definitely isn't over; the heat between them was simply too much...we had to jump in the water!!
