Documenting the birth of a new baby is something I have had on my professional bucket list for some time. I am happy to say, I can cross that off my list, only to add it to my MUST DO OFTEN LIST! It was incredible. This was my very first hospital session and I must say, I absolutely LOVED capturing such an intimate and very special moment in the lives of the Schmeing Family. I have been following Baby E, Elena since she was just a few weeks old. Now, she is a big sister at 21 months, welcoming Emma Renee. I created a slide show for the family to share with family and friends which will remain private. Here is a peek of the storytelling session. If you are not sure what a storytelling session is, please check my blog archives. Storytelling sessions are my absolute favorite sessions. It’s a way to capture life behind the scenes as it REALLY is/was and a priceless way to pass on the story in the years to come. Obviously, it is an on location shoot, the choice of color or black and white is the discretion of the photographer. Storytelling sessions come with the option of a book, a slideshow, and or prints. This is a very intimate, lovely genre of what I do, and I would love to share it with you! Oh! BTW, when I was waiting at the Hospital for Danny and Mel to arrive, someone asked me if I was there to shoot celebrities. My response was, “Of course!” You see, ALL of my clients are celebrities!
Yesterday was such an amazing day. I shot the cutest newborn and “big” sister on location in their home outside of Louisville. I love seeing relationships at beginning stages. Anyone having a toddler and a newborn knows only too well the constant challenge of keeping baby safe from all the “love” the toddler has to share. If they don’t know, they learn very quickly.I LOVED seeing 18 month Abigail practicing such amazing self control when it came to sharing her “love” with her newborn baby sister. She would literally shake with excitement, as she tried so hard to be soft. It was precious. I am quite sure these two will be fast friends and their future together will be full of such fun and endless adventures.
So what does a photographer do at a Wedding, besides photograph all the fabulousness of the Bride and Groom’s special day?… Grab a VERY pregnant woman and photograph this adorable Mamma and Daddy expecting their second baby! How could I resist?
Sessions in the studio are always an option. Sessions at a nearby park are always an option. But. It’s always an option to have a session at places that are more near and dear to your heart. I love to plan a session that will highlight a day in your life. The regular routines of your day. Your normal. Your now. Your present perfect. I call these sessions Storytelling. I know life isn’t always as perfect as we would like. Our homes are not always as tidy as we would like. Children are not always picture perfect. We are not always picture perfect. But. If you wait until the perfect moment, it might NEVER, EVER happen. Perfect is NOW. NOW…is all we really have.
Sure. I can give you what you think is perfect. But. I’d rather give you NOW. P.S. This example is PERFECT 🙂 Xx00
