The warm early morning sunlight shines on your face, and the wind blows gently through your hair. You nestle deeper into the warmth and softness of your sweater and place one hand tenderly on your belly. You close your eyes take a deep breath, reveling in the knowledge that you will soon be holding the child whose feet are pressing against your hand. This season of your life is precious and deserves to be artfully and reverently documented by someone who understands the honor of the task.
My hope is that though my photographs, you will be able to see yourself through my eyes. You are strong, and you are gentle. You are compassionate and resilient. You are beautiful, and you are brave. You are hopeful. The child with whom you share your body will soon be cradled in your arms, and the joy and anticipation that shine in your eyes warm my heart and stir my creative soul.
This is why I photograph motherhood. The love and excitement with which you await the arrival of your child inspire me to create photographs that are authentic and soulful. Your days will soon be overflowing with feedings, diaper changes, baby coos, and more love than you can imagine. But for now, I encourage you to soak up these last quiet, peaceful days while you and your baby share a heartbeat, and I will create a collection of images that will become a cherished heirloom for you and your growing family.
