Baby Makes Five. Santa Clarita Newborn Photographer.

 

I am going to be super honest with this blog post. This in-home newborn session I shot a few weeks ago was different. When I showed up at my lovely friend’s home she was in a mood. Fellow mothers, you know the mood: “The house is upside down but, I just had a baby. And I’m exhausted just looking at it.”

Yup. That one. She told me right away that a photo session is not what she wants right now. I left my camera down and just came to talk to her. My hopes were to just give her the ability to let out her feelings. She did. I gave her the opportunity to reschedule. I could do it another day.

We kept going.

I know looking back at these images she might remember her sour mood. Her overwhelming feelings of needing to clean everything. But, I also hope she remembers her postpartum bubble. The immense love for her new family of five. The feelings of gratitude for her body. The days with her supportive husband home taking care of her. I hope she sees her beautiful new days as a mother of three. I did.

With that thought in mind I quietly come in to capture those fleeting moments that will fly past you as quickly as a second on the clock. Don’t let those seconds become hours and then days without capturing your ever changing family.

Book your session now!

What I love about these in home newborn sessions is that it’s not so much about this one new little soul, as much as it is about all the other people who are here to love him. It’s a family affair.

 

And goofy kids happen. Their little quirks are captured and I love that. Take a look HERE for my favorite behind-the-scenes photo.

Los Angeles Twin Breech Birth

Los Angeles Twin Breech Birth

I am so excited to share this incredible birth! I feel that the longer I do this job and the more birth stories I blog, I tend to use the same adjectives to describe the beauty of life. There are no new ones here. It’s almost as if words just don’t do it justice. Each and every time. And I will be honest, even a photograph can’t do it justice sometimes. But, what a photograph can do is more powerful than words, it can bring the memory back. It can hold it. It can be the memory keeper. When I look at my own birth stories with each passing year I go flying back to the feelings of those days. I hope that I am able to provide those same moments to my clients and one day they will have a story to show their children.

 

Marisa contacted me about a month before her due date with her twins. A boy and a girl. We spent some time talking about what her previous births were like. They were epic. All of them had a unique story. I knew that this birth was going to be no different.

So fast forward to the birth day. She had managed to hunt down (and I truly mean hunt down), an OBGYN that was as scarce as a hen’s teeth! You see, very few OBGYNS know how to birth a breech baby, let alone two babies. This rare doctor she found was only working one day out the month. One twelve hour shift. Out of 730 hours in a month. He worked on her 37th week and one day of gestation! He agreed to catch her babies if she made it to that day and hour.

So that was Marisa’s new life goal, to make it to that day.

And by golly, SHE DID!

The room was filled to the brim with labor nurses, LVN, respiratory teams, NICU and a few residents and a midwife. The energy was wonderful. They were ready to meet their babies!

Hello beautiful soul!

Beautiful boy had to go to the NICU based on his weight at birth. He was perfect in every way.

You can hear more about Marisa’s pregnancy and birth directly on a wonderful podcast by Dr. Berlin called Informed Pregnancy.
