So....I told you about being able to take part in my very first Birth session!!!! You can read that story here >> http://www.brettaelmorephotography.com/blog/2016/9/welcome-baby <<
SUPER exciting stuff has happened to me this year!!!!
Well, not only did I get to do a Maternity shoot and a Birth Session...I also got to do my very first Newborn Session!!!!!
These are all new types of photography for me. I've had to do a lot of research, praying and soul searching to determine if this is the true direction of my photography.... (???)
The answer is YES!!!!!!!
I feel like I have a calling to photograph these special, brief moments in women's lives almost to the exclusion of all other photography!!
I do still love photographing flowers and I always have my camera handy for whatever may catch my eye at any given moment, but photography for women is where I see my business going...
So now you get to meet Baby J. We waited and prayed and cried and waited some more for this little one to make his appearance and he was totally worth the wait!!!!
He is so beautiful!!!!!
I had an extremely hard time deleting excess photos!!! We're talking 300+ photos to go through!! Many of them very similar and equally cute!! I think I managed to whittle it down to about 40!!! (Gasp!!) Let me tell you, it was not easy!!!! I struggled and fought with myself over the ones I had to delete in order to bring the right photos to my client!! It took so much longer than it should have because I felt a very personal, emotional connection to these photos and this session!
I hope my future newborn sessions aren't quite so hard to manage!!!
Without further ado....here is Baby J. at 9 days old!!
Cuddled in the blanket his mommy was making during labor!!!!
I heart this SO much!!!
Special time with Grammy!!!
He has an old soul.....
Sweet, precious family!!!
