As a Nelson BC photographer, I know that I am documenting the most exciting and possibly the most worrisome times in a family’s life. Bringing a human into the world is at once miraculous and life altering. From the moments when you were two, and then suddenly you are three–nothing can prepare you for that transition. But we can combine maternity and newborn family photos to make capturing the big changes a little easier!
During their maternity session, Kate and Deanna shared the challenges of getting pregnant, what the process brought forward for them, and the roller coaster of emotions the journey had given them so far. I could feel their kind support for one another, how they leaned into each other when they reflected on the odyssey. Capturing this and reflecting it back to them with the humour, care and compassion so clearly evident in their relationship, was essential.
And then, we waited for their tiny human to arrive. When Deanna emailed that Florence had come home and they were ready for their newborn photo session, I could hear the absolute pleasure in her words. And it was real. The warm energy that surrounds them was accentuated, and their healthy humour was the perfect fit for all the crazy things that happen to your life when there’s a baby in it!
Maternity and Newborn Family Photos
I offer Fresh 14 sessions, which are done within 14 days of your baby’s arrival, and the baby bump is ideally in the last trimester. You can combine the maternity and newborn family photos and get 20% off! These are usually in your home, where everyone is comfortable and at ease. I spend some time getting to know you, so I can share that in your images. If you’re expecting, please send me an email through my website. I look forward to meeting you!
