i am a newborn photographer. i may photograph many things, and truly wholeheartedly enjoy doing so, but…deep down..it’s who i am. i photograph newborns. and i LOVE it. perhaps it comes from my maternal instincts, my ache for my babies who are growing too fast. perhaps it is from my background as a labor & delivery nurse…and witnessing the miracle of life at its most raw, fresh and new state…having the blessed opportunity to be one of the first to welcome a new soul into the world. i miss that.
i have followed carrie & brit since the beginning. i marveled at how they could capture the purity of newborns like no other and i knew that one day, i wanted to learn from them. it has been a dream of mine to attend one of their workshops since they started holding them. i have always valued continuing education…it pushes & inspires me…and i like to learn from the best.
the weekend was a whirlwind. i have grown as an artist, made many amazing new friends who i will continue to cherish and soaked up the knowledge of two genuine, gifted and down-to-earth women.
i’ve decided to break down the images from the workshop into various blog posts highlighting each of the beautiful babies we met. i have lots of photos of some, just a few of others, but each was unique and beautiful in their own way. i simply adore these new people. their potential and innocence. it speaks to me in a way that nothing else i point my camera on can. it is truly, my calling.
our first model. he was a dream…
and because i simply COULD NOT decide…i am showing this one in both black & white and color. i absolutely love both.
