Being trusted to document these huge times in your lives is just the absolute craziest thing in the world. When I look back through these photographs and realized how precious and priceless these newborn memories are to this family I can’t help but feel completely inadequate. I want to give absolute perfection to every single client because the responsibility they are giving me as their newborn photographer is a weighty, precious one.
There’s something so dignifying about entering a strangers home and watching their life unfold before your eyes. The parenting that inevitably needs to happen while you’re there, the diaper changes and bathroom breaks, the feedings and the naps. The tired, happy looks between mom and dad as they sit peacefully together, just taking in the existence of life. To be given a glimpse at the raw, vulnerable lives of my clients is beautiful. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Grab a cup of coffee, take a look at their photographs and marvel at the beauty of new life that inevitable comes. Winter turn to Spring (eventually), the sun rises after dark, all things that pass away are made new in perfect time. Keep your chin up.
Your photographer friend, Steph
