I am so excited to be back behind the lens after giving birth to my beautiful daughter, Hannah Taryn, in March. The world has taken on a whole new meaning for Curtis and I. Our joy has been profound since finding out I was pregnant in July, but we never imagined how much love we would have for this amazing little lady once she arrived in our arms!
My photography has also taken on a whole new depth of meaning. I feel so much more privileged to capture a family's precious moments, especially in those fleeting first few days and months. I know how fast it goes. I woke up last week with a smiling, cooing, kicking baby - the tiny, precious newborn days are just a memory already. I have new fire in my belly for newborn and maternity sessions. I want to shoot birth photography. All fueled by that wondrous experience of becoming a mother.
So with the new blog, a new start. In addition to regularly sharing client photo sessions, I'm looking forward to sharing my personal experiences as a new mother - the good, the bad, and the downright challenging - through my personal work. I'm looking to connect with my clients in a deeper way, and give more back to whomever stumbles upon this blog.
And so I introduce you to my new little muse... Miss Hannah. Hannah arrived in March, 8 days late, and a full pound over the doctor's pre-labor estimate. She is full of personality and has the fluffiest head of wild hair I've ever seen. She is an answer to prayer, and the light of our lives.
