"I felt you. You were a pea. Then a lemon. Then an eggplant. I followed advice. I read twelve books. I quit caffeine. Could you tell I was scared? I talked to you, sang to you...I wasn't ready. But then you were here. Ten toes. Seven pounds. Love. Big fat love. I held you. I fed you. I realised that I would spend my life doing things to make you happy -- and that that would make me happy. One day you will smile and say my name -- and you will grab my hand with those little fingers. I will open my heart and love will rain down all over you. You'll giggle, and I'll do it all over again. And we will walk hand in hand. Until you let go. I made you, but you made me a mother."
Following the journey of two becoming three. Welcome baby Izaiah.
I absolutely adored hanging out with Yarlini and Cam a few weeks before their lives changed forever, then catching up with them after their little guy arrived. It truly is the hardest and most beautiful journey, and I am honoured every time I am invited to be a part of it.
If you are expecting soon and interested in a session, take a look at my Welcoming Baby Collection. I meet you for a maternity shoot, followed by your choice of a Fresh 48 or Newborn session. Not just to remember this special time in your family’s life, but to tell your story, with all the emotions and love that comes with it.
