Last year, I wrote a blog called “My journey to the bump” and shared our story about the issues I have been going through to try and have a baby.
Fast forward to this year, the update is we are still trying. It turns out I didn’t need surgery on my uterus as everything was completely normal after my MRI. We are starting fertility medication in April in hopes to make baby Peake a reality.
I’ve had so many people ask me lately if it bothers me to photograph newborns. My answer is no. I love my job, I love working with expecting parents and new parents. I’ve always photographed newborns but the last year I have really put my all into learning everything I can about photographing newborns, the safety, posing, wrapping, everything.
This last year, I have shifted my focus in my photography. My passion is photography Maternity, Newborn, Children, and Family Portraits. I stepped back on photographing weddings. I feel I have grown so much in my job this past 2 years.
You know, when you go through situations in life that help you see “clearly”. I went through 2 terrible losses in 2017 within 32 days of each other, I lost my stepdad and my Nan. It made me realize just how short life can be and how happy I am that I took photos all the time of my family because now, that is all I have of them.
That was the year I decided to put my everything into my business and switched into a full time photographer and started a in-home studio. It was the best decision of my life. I have been taking online courses in Newborn Photography, Studio Photography, Toddler & Sitter Sessions etc. The best part of it all is all the baby snuggles.
Since sharing my story, I have met some new friends that shared their journey with me. It gives me hope and encouragement. By me sharing my story, I hope to bring encouragement to others!
Below is some samples of when I first started Newborn Photography.
Below is recent Newborn Photography I have done. I have grown and can’t wait to keep learning.
