Baby S' Birth Story

When this sweet mamma first inquired I could immediately tell she had done her research and knew exactly what to expect and exactly what she wanted. Normally this is a photographer's dream. This time, it was more like heaven. This family quickly became my muse for the next step for my entire business. I've been wanting to find the time to bring this little business of mine to the next level, but finding the time to properly educate myself just wasn't happening. With her trusting in me to bring her dream to life, it gave me a deadline, which this procrastinator needs in her life! ;) 

Photography is my passion, but there are certain things it just can't capture. Things like the sweet tune of our little one's voice, your baby's first cry, the clumsy movements of a toddler who is just growing up all too quickly. Perhaps this lays so heavy on my heart because I myself am in the middle of all of these transitions in life. I feel their growth every second of the day with every ounce of my being. I think a great deal of my postpartum anxiety comes from the fact that I can't SLOW IT DOWN! Films have the ability to capture all of this and it is so powerful. You can't print a film and display it in your home, which is a huge passion of mine. I'll never stop delivering photography because of this, but having the ability to accentuate it with videography is so exciting for me! 

I feel this family needs no introduction. Through the mixture of film and photography you will quickly understand their beauty, love, and strength.

That's normally something we say to describe a count down until something we are looking forward to. It's NOT a figure a woman ever wants to describe her labor! This mama has the privileged of never looking at that number in the same way-and some pretty amazing bragging rights! I'm pretty sure I'd stick that one in my pocket to use anytime I was needing a break from chores! ;)

In all seriousness she was an amazingly graceful laborer. All you could do was sit back in amazement that a woman could endure so much, with such little sleep, and still have it in her to laugh and smile while she's at it! As this mom and dad got closer and closer to meeting their sweet little girl they sank into each other and relied on prayer to keep Christine going. They were such a beautiful testament of love and strength.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
