Oh how wonderful it is to watch a little one grow up! Sometimes it can be a little bittersweet to see it happen so quickly, but that’s what these Chickadee Sessions are all about: celebrating and remembering every little phase of that first year of growth. And Milo is growing so much and so well! What a joy to see his little face light up my frame as well as his parents, who are more in love than ever! We had a fun time grabbing some sweet portraits out in his grammy’s backyard before heading inside for a special photo shoot for part two! (Stay tuned!)
What an honor to help support this family through their birth story! I spent 22 hours with them from the time I arrived at their home, anticipating their home birth, then when complications arose joining them at the hospital to deliver there, through delivery and then into the recovery room to meet sister! It was a long one but I loved every minute–being a source of support for families during their birth is one of my favorite parts of this job.
When it became obvious that this little one needed to be born through a cesarean birth, Mama got her wish and the surgical team allowed me to follow them into the OR to capture that magical birth moments! I remember her talking to her medical team before the surgery saying “Please let my photographer come it–it’s the only thing left that can go right for me: to have birth photos.” Such a profound moment for me to remember that birth photography has value in that it is something mothers and families can count on through all the many variables of birth. It was such a wonderful experience to stand alongside this family and help support this amazing, powerful birth story!
Mother Bird Photography is proud to offer Your Chickadee’s First Year Sessions to capture all the major milestones of your baby’s first year! You may remember this little guys birth story from a few months ago–I was so delighted to be able to go back and see how much Milo has grown! His parents are doing excellent work and are just as in love as ever! I can’t wait to see how much he grows and changes this year! Enjoy a small sampling of this in-home session 💛 heather
