The Undisturbed First Hour & A Newborn Session | Morden, MB Birth & Lifestyle Photographer

When photographing births, I don't often get the opportunity to cuddle babies. When A mother finally has her sweet bundle in her arms, it is my job to document that, capturing the emotion. I do this very quietly and without disturbing the family during this very important postpartum period. The first few hours after your baby arrives are some of the most important. The way your baby is cared for and nurtured during this time can significantly impact their transition from the womb to life outside. This first hour should be focused on baby's first breastfeeding, mother-baby and family bonding. Having an undisturbed first hour has many benefits, such as:

Beautiful Mommas Make Beautiful Babies | Morden, MB Birth & Lifestyle Photographer

When I saw this amazing Mommas pregnancy announcement on Instagram, I could not have been more excited! I first met Jayme back when I was just starting out in the world of photography, and organizing my Beautiful Momma Project. Let me tell you, this woman is the definition of strength and perseverance. She exudes joy and love, despite the heartache she has endured. She so openly and honestly shared her story with all of you, with the hopes of reaching others who may have walked the same path as her and her family, I'm so proud of her

Birth | The Unpredictable Force | Morden, MB Birth & Lifestyle Photographer

Life can be so unpredictable, this is especially so in the nature of birth. We can make a plan, read a book, think it all through, but we don't really decide any of it. We can choose our caregiver, where we hope to birth, all of the little details. But that doesn't mean it will happen just that way. This is not a bad thing, or a scary thing......it is just a true thing. Luckily, it's not left up to us to decide for a reason, nature knows, it knows exactly how it shall happen. It will happen the way it's supposed to.

Cecilia's Birth Story | Morden, MB Birth & Lifestyle Photographer

Every birth I attend as a birth photographer is special and I hold those moments and memories dear to me. This particular couple has a very special place in my heart. 

Back when I was very first starting out as a newbie photographer, they were my first paying clients when I shot their engagement session. I then went on to photograph their wedding, family Christmas, maternity and eventually I photographed the birth of their first baby. It's so special that we have been able to experience so many firsts together, and walk this journey alongside one another. So often in my career as a massage therapist, my clients become my close friends. I'm finding this to be equally true in my artistic work, especially with birth photography.

Six Months Later | Morden, MB Birth & Lifestyle Photographer

Just as I am amazed by how quickly my own babies have grown, I always feel shocked to see how quickly my birth babies have grown. Once a family invites me into their birthing space and allows me to document those moments, our relationship is forever changed. I have an attachment to them and their babes that will last a lifetime.
