I was so thrilled to have received such a random email like this! Someone almost on the other side of the United States has been inspired by my photography! She want on in her email to kindly ask if I would be a part of providing professional photography for her website. I couldn’t resist. I love helping other mommies, women, and passionate people so this was right up my ally. I provided her exactly what she asked for and she graciously gave me credit on her website. I so excited to be a part of this with these ladies. They are fantastic and are doing something really wonderful for all women out there who choose to be “normal”….not everyone wants to have their precious baby in a hospital and sometimes religion or heritage might frown up hospitals as well. These ladies offer a solution to that problem, and an amazing one at that!
I know they are a little far away for any of the mamas out here, but you can check them out and educate your self about doulas, home births, etc. And at the very least, just go by and say hi and check out my photos on their website. They are still fixing the website up a little still.
Here are the photos that I provided them. Enjoy. And…once again, Thank you Elizabeth for inviting me to be a part of your amazing website and gift in providing education and services to mommies all over!
You might recognize that many of these portraits are of me. Totally not my decision! I granted Elizabeth full access to all photos and she choose specific ones all on her own. A couple are of some of my first pieces of work from a first newborn session and some are from my own personal birth experience when I had my daughter.
This shot (above) is of my pregnant belly. I had just been admitted to the hospital with contractions and they were checking the baby’s heartbeat at this point. So, who took the photo? My wonderful back up photographer and second photographer….and hubby!
This shot (above) was one of my first newborns. Not technically “my first” but one of em’. I love shots like this where daddy’s strong arms hold such sweet tiny babies.(above) Yup. That’s me. I find it hilarious that it looks like I’m wearing makeup but that’s beside the point. I had a c-section with both my children and my obgyn was so fantastic to let hubby bring in the camera to document our daughter’s delivery.
(above) Another one of my first newborns. Her she sleeps on her mommy’s shoulder. Look at all that peach fuzz on her back..how sweet!
So, there you have it. You will see all of these photos through out Elizabeth’s website. I hope that you enjoyed today’s blog! Thanks for stopping by!!!
