Our gender surprise, a gorgeous baby boy. It still amazes me how peaceful my birthing environment was; quiet, dim, calm. All things my hospital birth was not. Not only was I able to feel in control about my labor, I felt an incredible feeling of empowerment — I am feeling I still ride 4 weeks later!
Thanks to my husband, I pretty much know the best locations for any outdoor photo session in the area and thanks to his skilled advice, I can estimate if the conditions ( tide, sunset facing and time of year) are favorable or less for the purpose of the photography session.
It is the most sacred experience and closest to the divine, besides giving birth. No matter how many times I have walked into the birth space and attended the love fest party of a family giving birth, I always leave high on happy hormones, with a heart full joy for the hope that a new life may bring to the world.
I stumbled upon the story of Alfie James Evans almost by mistake. I was immediately drawn to him and his formidable parents Kate and Tom, who fought for their baby for months after, due to his diagnosis with a degenerative brain condition, the Liverpool hospital he was hospitalized decided to switch off his life support.
This image recently made top 100 in the Shoot and Share (http://shootandshare.com/ ) annual contest.

I am always so happy to introduce new spots to my clients, even though they may have lived locally for years, there is always an opportunity to see something new and unexpected. Maternity Sessions can be that magical if you choose the right photographer 😉
From the moment I walked into their house to document their birth, all I could sense was peace. Mom decided to transfer to the hospital at some point and despite the madness of lights and revolving door of nurses I usually witness, this time, this birth was calm, respectful and honored.
You will usually find most children these days busy on a computer or phones and tablets. Or you will find them watching television. All these activities cause them to sit in one place for a prolonged duration.
Learning photography will pique your child’s curiosity and help them become more creative.
