Welcome, mama

Motherhood: Are you currently longing for it? In the thick of it? Or maybe growing your little angel right now, waiting for the day he/she is finally in your arms?

Given my history on how I came to reach my title of Mom, I feel like God gave me this special gift. Through the darkest days of my life, He blessed me with these beautiful lenses, through which I got to see just how beautiful + meticulously designed every detail truly is. Going through IVF, then having complicated pregnancies, we got to see our babes SO often in utero! For a while there, we got to see our daughter 2-3 times per week. To this day, I still can't shake how quickly she grew/developed. I fully believe that I was made for that time in my life. Sure, I would have loved to have been a "normal" woman who didn't have trouble conceiving. And, yes, I know I would have found my own way to find the beauty in the natural process had that been my story. But it wasn't. Being blessed with that behind-the-scene look on all of it is something I will carry, remember and cherish for all of my days. Disclaimer: Don't get me wrong, I definitely struggled (...like hardcore) through both of my pregnancies. But when you have a life growing inside you, there's just no way you can say it was 100% bad. Anyway, those lenses are carried with me every. single. day. Even when my 5 and 2 year olds are driving me crazy, I can pull those glasses out and a smile just comes rushing on and takes over my face.

It's through all of this, that I reached the decision to capture motherhood for all of you. To be able to show you just how stinking beautiful the time we spend together truly is. To give those lenses God gave me over to you through your final photos. From the mama who is literally tearing her body apart to bring life into this world to the mama who is chasing after her little one, trying to get them to cooperate for family photos. Mama, it is all beautiful! But one of my biggest hopes through these lenses I hand over to you, is that you see just how beautiful YOU are in this role. God created you for this time. For these littles. You are something extraordinary and I truly hope you see + feel that when your photos are delivered to you. Honestly, the words escape me. I literally can't explain to yall just what I feel when I get the chance to do a session for you. Please know that I do not take it lightly. When you ask me to come into your lives, your homes, or your intimate birth space...I feel an instant connection with all of you through motherhood and I thank God for all of it!

If you're ready to document where you are in your motherhood journey, I'm so excited and I can't wait to meet you!
