I am a mother to two beautiful girls, and as they are leaving their baby years behind and becoming toddlers I find myself thinking daily “how did they grow up so fast?” Everyone tells you these early years disappear too fast, but it doesn’t really sink in until you are in it yourself, folding away their swaddles and newborn clothes, switching out teething toys for crayons and balance bikes, and thinking how is my tiny, squishy, little newborn old enough for her first ballet class.
We can’t stop these fleeting days from rushing past us, the best we can do is pause and take the time to capture our babies with their first toothless grins and drooly faces, their tiny hands in ours, their sweet embraces and giggles. Someday the only way we will be able to relive these beautiful moments and feelings is through the photographs we take.
I live to capture these special moments in my own life and would be honored to do the same for you. Whether it’s the anticipation and excitement of becoming a new mother through a maternity session, the joy and awe of holding your little one for the first time with a lifestyle newborn session, or the wonderful, beautiful (sometimes chaotic) early years.
As our babies grow and seasons change, maybe one day these photos will bring you back home, even just for a moment.
