I felt so honored when I learned that Kahlan’s first venture out of the house with mom was to come see me! Ohhhhh how I remember those first days/weeks… lets be honest, months… with a newborn. Simultaneously the most wonderful, terrifying, exhilarating and exhausting moments of my life!
Please, new mamas, know that I’ve been there. I get it. I have such a love and compassion for the tender, precious, life altering phase that you are navigating right now, whether its your first child or your fifteenth! (Ok, I’ve never actually had a mom of 15 in the studio.) When you come to our studio you enter a judgement free zone! Come as you are! Take a nap on our bed! Walk to the coffee shop below and grab yourself a treat that you DARN well deserve! I pray the studio is a place of peace and joy for you and your family!
And I remember what a peaceful, delightful presence Kahlan and her mom had. It filled the studio that morning and it was just a privilege to capture this sweet girl. I think you can really feel that energy coming through in each photograph, don’t you?
I do it for the snuggles.
