Shanna & Vivi


Shanna & I have been mommy and photog friends for a few years now. Early this year I met her beautiful new daughter, Vivi in this field at sunset for some gorgeous breastfeeding newborn images. This weekend I got to meet with her again at sunrise in the same field to celebrate her (almost) one year birthday.

The confidence that Shanna shows in these images isn't a front. Watching her grow as a woman, mother, photographer and friend has been an absolute blessing. Happy Birthday, Sweet Viv.

The Last Time

Mother & Daughter Mini SessionI met Mama A in 2012 during a breastfeeding mini session with her Baby G. These two ladies were SWEET AS PIE and G reminded me of my own little babe, Norah. Imagine my giddiness when I received an email from Mama A booking me for another mini session this year. I love any opportunity I get to photograph mothers, but when they are repeat clients, and when they are as genuine as this woman is, you get excited about it!

I received this email a few days after I delivered their images "My husband and I are dying over the pictures!!! Thank you so much.  I love them.  And I love how you captured G's smile that reflects her joy.  And {she} hasn't asked to nurse since then so you may have truly captured the last time I'll ever breastfeed!   Bittersweet."

You see, G is the youngest of many siblings, and the last baby Mama A plans to nurse. Little unexpected gifts such as this fill my heart.

Thank you for allowing me to photograph you during this time as a nursing mama, A. You are a joy.
