I love being a Colorado lifestyle newborn photographer & as I’ve been diving more and more into lifestyle imagery that is more deeply connected to my clients and their lives I found myself really contemplating parenthood. It’s amazing how having support systems are so so deeply important but also how the strength of motherhood is so persistent and big.
During pregnancy I’m fascinated by the body and how the body changes to develop this little being but I’m also so fascinated by the deep emotional capacity, and the limits of that emotional capacity and how it is all dealt with in this transformation of family growth. I’m not a parent at this point in my life so I am sure that I am missing a lot of the complexities within the way lives are changed by having a child but it’s been humbling to watch the transformations a bit more deeply with my clients.
A few months ago I met & photographed Allison & Rob for their maternity session & just a few days ago I met sweet Edyn & she is the cutest little bundle of sweet that I’ve ever seen. Rob had to leave town for work pretty directly after Edyn was born and I can only imagine how difficult it’d be for everyone.
Allison’s love for this child is immediately apparent & so big and so genuine that it’s hard not to burst with joy with her. As a Colorado lifestyle newborn photographer, my work takes me all over the state sometimes. I drove down to Colorado Springs on a snowy morning and had some time to kill so I drove through Garden of the Gods which was lightly covered in snow and looking more magnificent than I could imagine so the morning began with magic already.
The moment I stepped into their home it was radiating with this incredible warmth that I can only attribute to the pride & love for this sweet little beauty they just brought into the world. Allison wanted to go ahead and do a shorter newborn session and then do a secondary one when Rob is home from work. It was important to get the newness of their sweet baby girl but the importance of capturing their sweet family all together feels overwhelming and so emotional to me. I cannot wait to see them all again soon.
