Not every one wants birth photos, but every baby deserves his or her first days captured.

Birth Day sessions meet families where they are: hospital, birth center, or home. I come and capture your baby within in the first 48 hours of life. These sessions can include family meeting the baby for the first time, just mom dad and the baby, or just the baby himself. These photos are much more “lifestyle” images and very little posing is done.

The Value of Newborn Photography

posted in: Newborns | 4

I know what you’re thinking. You’re a newborn photographer, of course you are going to say newborn photography is “important”. While that’s true, I want to tell you, as a mom, why newborn photography is so very important to me.

My last baby, Apollo, was born by emergency c-section. He had a bit a rough start and needed to be observed in the nursery for while he as worked on his breathing skills. Within hours he was resting peacefully in my arms, having been declared “perfect” by the doctors. A photographer friend came to visit when Apollo was six days old and helped me capture these beautiful newborn images. I will be forever grateful to Emily for that.

At age 18 months Apollo was diagnosed with a double aortic arch, a type of congenital heart defect. His heart defect required two heart surgeries and the placement of a g-tube. While I valued these photos before, I  absolutely treasure them now.

Never again  will I see my son’s precious scar-free back.

Never again will we see his unmarred little tummy.

I’m not ashamed of my son’s scars. They are symbols of his struggles, his suffering, his  resilient spirit.

Each scar tells a story about Apollo’s life.

A story I hope he will someday be proud to tell.

My son is a fighter. I love his body, scars and all.

When Apollo was born we had no idea what struggles he had ahead of him. That’s why newborn photography is so important to me. I am so grateful to have captured sweet newborn body. Just as I proudly capture his now scarred, but repaired,  body at two years old.
