Pinks, purples, dresses, painting pictures, playing with momma and loving on sister…. these are things that tell their story.

This beautiful momma welcomed home a new baby girl for all to love and snuggle on and for their storyteller session, I was welcomed into their home for a little sneak peek and introduction of new baby, Miss Hadley.

While baby sister was able to get some rest, her big sister and I spent some time playing with eggs, puzzles, dress up and more! Here is a sneak peek into their storyteller session.

Introducing Baby Sarah. “Sarah” – which means “lady” or “Princess” in Hebrew. And a princess and a lady she is. I can tell that she will have a smile to melt the hardest of hearts, the eyes to calm a soul, and words that will bring peace.

 

The last time I really spent with this momma was years ago back when we were both expecting a new baby. For me, it was baby number 5 and for her, it was baby number 2. I was there for her wedding, her first baby, her second baby….and again for baby number number 3. And they are some beautiful kiddos!!! The most sweetest and kindest family with the biggest heart. My heart was so happy to see this momma again and to meet her newest baby.

Baby Sarah is GORGEOUS!! Such beautiful creamy skin, plump and tiny, perfect amount of roll, the sweetest little nose and precious tiny lips – she even has her mommas toes.

Here is a sneak peek into our session we had recently.

Being a baby photographer has many joys. One of my favorite perks, is being able to hold and snuggle new babies. Their tiny features so delicate and pure.

Baby Claire came to see me a few weeks ago – 5 pounds of adorable cuteness. Her mom and dad looked so happy and it was so sweet to watch them snuggle and connect with their daughter. Photography is such a joy. But connecting with the families is the best gift ever!

 

I created a special birth announcement for them. I learned during her maternity session, that this hubby serves in the military and just moved from my old stomping grounds in Virigina.

Introducing a new baby buck – Knoxx

When I received the news that this momma was expecting… first, I kind of had a feeling before it was announced and then second, I jumped up and down. My husband has gotten used to the fact that I do a little celebration anytime I get the good news that my clients and friends tell me they are having a baby. Gosh, I get so excited with every announcement!

I have had the pleasure and honor to be able to document each new baby of hers and I was thrilled beyond words to be able to document this little guy and all his tiny details.

Over the fall, we did a maternity session to announce their arrival of their little buck, Mr. Knoxx. Her session was stunning with the fall sunset. I had so much fun just being with her family and watching them love on each other. Feel free to read all about her maternity session or fill up on some eye candy over on Pinterest.

Finally the day had come when I was able to meet their little buck and get some of my own snuggles. The first time seeing him, my heart just melted and I think my voice went up two notches in baby talk. He is so handsome – such the looks of a little man. Perfect! And he was amazing during his session with me. It was very hard not to want to make this mom and dad stay longer just so I could get more snuggles in. Baby Knoxx is so loved and adored not only by his sisters and his mom and dad, but also by so many friends and family. I am so excited to watch this little guy grow up. I promise you will see more of him gracing the pages of my website and social media.

 

Here is a sneak peek into our newborn session.

Christmas was coming and we knew that a baby would soon be here. The C family were expecting baby #5 any day and have been waiting patiently to see if they were going to hold a new baby girl or a new baby boy.

I was asked to document their birth as it had been a dream of this momma’s for a while. So I was thrilled when I was asked. There is nothing like witnessing a baby come into the world and seeing who amazing God made women to give life!

You can view their Pure Moments Film or keep reading to hear about the birth.

This momma is a very strong woman. Labored for days. Weeks. News came daily that no progress had been made which if you had experience a long labor you know how hard that news is to accept. Your body feels terrible, pain comes and goes, nothing brings comfort.

On January 2nd I received a message that labor had finally stuck around and was moving pretty well. She had reached 5 cm. I jumped out of bed, excited and happy to meet this baby. I had my thoughts they were expecting a boy and I wanted to stand right along with them and cry with joy of a new baby. I arrived at her home just as the sun was coming up. The midwives were there, the kids were all awake and enjoying the company of their nana and gramma. Life was moving along and we were all excited to finally meet this little baby that was all snuggled up inside their momma.

Hours had passed and although there was some progression, it still wasn’t as much as momma had hoped. You can see the stress and exhaustion over momma’s face. The hardest part about documenting a birth is feeling helpless. It is my nature to want to help in any way that I can. But I knew she was in good hands and I also knew that if I was needed for anything, she would have asked. Finally it was all agreed that what she needed most was to get complete rest. Everyone was to leave and just let her have her own space to move and sleep as she needed. The baby needed her to do that too. So, I packed up the gear, said a silent prayer and left to get some lunch.

 

A few hours had passed and as the evening came in, momma knew the best thing that she could do at the moment was to get out and walk. Since it is winter here in Idaho, the best place to walk would be the only store that doesn’t have closing hours – Wal-Mart. I decided to meet her there and document her walk around. I admit that I too have taken that pregnancy stroll, but I was not as smooth as she was. Again, I admire how strong this momma is. Half the time you couldn’t tell she was having a contraction, she would either just slowly walk or just hang her head. Once in a while there would be a moment where we would stop and just have to rest. Oh how my body could feel that pain for her!

After we spent some time walking the isles, we parted ways and I left her go back home to rest as I stayed close by waiting for her text that the contractions had sped up. Unfortunately her contractions stalled again and it wouldn’t be for another few days until she was able to meet her new son.

January 7th. The morning was glorious. The most beautiful and clear sunrise. There she sat all snuggled in her bed, she was holding Mr. Thorin Phillip. 8 pounds and 13 ounces of baby! A handsome chuck of boy.

It was such an honor to be able to be a part of something so incredible. I love being able to watch my families grow and I love meeting all the new babies. Being able to create a Pure Moments Film for this family – for this moment if their life- was a gift. I hope that their kiddos enjoy watching it over and over again as much as I do.
