YOU + YOUR BABIES
If you’re a mama, I’m sure that all rang true to you. I’ve always been the documenter, even back in high school and college. now, as a photographer and a mom, I’m remembering another set of months went by and i need to shoot her! I’m always following her day with pictures and videos, seeing the perfect moment between Portland and CJ and capturing it. But you know what? I’m not in very many. mostly because I’m working from home, making her food, writing an email with one hand and feeding her with the other. I’m rarely ready, and have a red velvet baseball cap on most the time….so those photos I do take with her, my hair and up and no makeup.
But these times, its the best moments and days. and im building memories with her. how we brush our teeth together in the morning. or our morning walks. Her climbing all over me and standing behind me as i work, wrapping her little arms around my neck giving me the best hug.
It’s the most beautiful. and also the craziest. multi-tasking. busy. wonderful time. i’ve never been one night away from her and i’m her everything. i totally feel how they say, its the longest shortest time. and you know what, i deserve to be in photos where I’m with her, and where i feel beautiful and capture these memories that i will always have such sweet memories. i want to have the feeling i feel in my heart towards my baby to be captured on camera and in a physical form i can rely on later when i forget what its like to have babies in my house.
it’s all because of this that I’ve been building something I’m so excited for, which is: The Mama & The Babies event – where Mama’s can show up, hand their baby over to a babysitter only to have it replaced with a glass of champagne. Have makeup done by a professional. Have moments to yourself. And take beautiful, feminine, strong, lovely photos with you and your babies.
cuddle, breastfeed, play, be quiet, hold, love.
Any age, if they call you mama….you’ve got the 1st spot.
I put the idea out and there’s been an incredible response….so that just tells me, helllllllo we need this. I want so much to provide an opportunity where moms can step out of “I’m taking care of everyone” and put on “Let’s do something for you.”
Photos for you to remember this time.
But photos to look back on 50 years from now and they can look at the woman they love so much.
The Mama & The Babies Event will be Sunday, July 22nd. You’ll have a beautiful home to relax in and get ready in. Photos of you and your babies. White. Flowy. Feminine. Love. Babies. Kids. Mama.
I’m launching this on Sunday. I’m so beyond excited to see what mama’s will be joining. This is starting something good. I know it. Ready to make some art with you and your babies.
