I have known this sweet girls family for 5 years. Embarrassingly I met them when I first started out in my photography journey and Ame was kind enough to let me come into her home, with my two girls in tow, to practice on her two little girls. Over the years she has stuck with me through the growth of my business. I’ve shot birthdays, holidays, family and so much more for them. So of course when Ame contacted me to cover this journey for them I was all on board!!
Pregnancy, birth and even motherhood is different for every woman and I am happy to be their for all of clients to meet their individual needs.
Ame went in for her 3rd ceseran. Let me be totally honest, c-sections scare me. Not because I don’t trust medical professionals, I do. I have the utmost respect for the amazing midwives, physicians, nurses and staff at our local hospitals. They are are rocking the birth world in amazing ways!! Why do they scare me? Umm hello knives, stitches, operating room…..To me a woman who can champion through that deserves a medal, a badge to wear with honor. That woman will go through hell or high water for her child and I applaud YOU! Don’t get me wrong vaginal birth sucks in the most amazing way and we too deserve a medal. How about we all get medals for being moms on any given day because truthfully-it’s hard. Not always, not even most days but their’s a reason woman do it and not men 😉 (totally kidding dads you rock too!) Medals and badges for all parents!!
Their birth story- While it’s not my job to put into words anyone’s birth story I give it my all to speak their story through images.
Here is a look at Annabelle’s newborn session and birthday!
