When the first one came our newborn shoot was quiet, still, reflective. I was a new mom back then too.
When the second one came there was activity and movement, it wasn’t so quiet nor pensive during his newborn shoot.
By baby #3, it was a full on busy and bustling household in motion. We spent most of the shoot in the room where she was born, surrounded by a banner of encouragement made by friends during Liz’s blessingway. The flags that made up the banner had words of encouragement like, “you’ve got this” and “the power of 3”. I have to say that three does look pretty good on this family.
There’s a ring that gets passed from expecting mother to expecting mother as babies are born safely through Liz’s family, she was getting ready to pack it up and send it on to the next momma-to-be. A few pictures with its magic first…
The gratitude I feel for the families who have worked with me from the beginning of their marriage story through the birth and growth of their babies is so strong it makes all typed words read hollow and trite. But maybe pictures describe the bond. I truly love you guys, I relish the mayhem and welcome Ellie with fondness and joy!
