What have I been up to lately? Gearing up for wedding season, prepping new gear and spending countless cold days indoors with my kiddos. Before my first wedding of the year coming up this Saturday, I thought I'd share some of what I've had going on in front of my lens lately. I won't lie, most of them are just playing around with my own kiddos at home--it's my off season! However, I do have some new material to share. Enjoy!

March 30, 2016 - Welcome Grayson

My first blog post! Yay!

I've long thought about creating a blog as a way to share more of my sessions without bombarding Facebook and to give a personal touch to my business. So, for my first blog post, I thought I'd share one of my recent & most treasured sessions...little Grayson's arrival.

Why birth photography?
To be honest, I've always wanted to shoot a birth but never had the opportunity. When my daughter was born in December, I dreamed of having a photographer there to document the wonderful experience. However, I fell into the same excuses everyone does--"I can't afford it". What! Me! I'm supposed to advocate the value of such photos. Yet, I made the mistake of forgoing the birth photographer and I sure wish I wouldn't have.

So here we are.
Kristi and Bryan were awesome enough to invite me into their delivery room while they awaited their first child, Grayson. Kristi was a trooper and made it through 36 hours of labor to welcome a beautiful baby boy! We captured some beautiful, emotional images that I know they will treasure forever.

Thinking of hiring a birth photographer but not sure how it works?
We begin with a pre-session consultation to discuss your preferences and so we can get to know each other. I remain on call surrounding your due date and will come to the hospital when you are 5-6 cm dilated. I then stay until the baby arrives and up to an hour after, no matter the length of time (the following birth story included a 14 hour shift at the hospital for me!) The images are edited and delivered to you within one week so you can relive the special details over and over again.

More details about birth sessions on the Birth Photography page. Questions? Contact me. Until then, enjoy the beautiful images below, and keep the tissues handy <3
