Finding The Life | Volume 2 | Morden, MB Birth & Documentary Photographer

In a style true to myself, I left this months day in the life project to the very end. Last month I had no time to think about it, and had no idea how difficult it would be. This month I knew better. My husband had just returned home from a week away and I knew this day would be a great opportunity. We planned a family day to head into Winnipeg and attend the Festival De Voyager. Since having children, my husband and I have always split the weekend days for sleeping in. He takes Saturday and I take Sunday. This Saturday was no different.

Blessed With Boys | A family nourishment session | Morden, MB Birth & Lifestyle Photographer

This lovely family was the recipient of my Christmas giveaway. Momma's name was drawn for a nursing mini session. She was excited as they hadn't even had a newborn session done with their precious twin boys, who were now 11 weeks old. This family worked hard and waited a long time to be graced with these boys, so I was excited to be able to provide them with some memories of this very fleeting time.

As you all likely know, my favorite things to capture are everyday moments. Moments that make up a larger story. Many of you have trusted me to do exactly this with your family's moments. I've captured your birth, your family gatherings and your day to day moments. I attempted to do so with my own moments daily, my 366 project, and I failed. Life is busy, I find it so difficult to pick up my camera, it never feels like there is enough time.

Life Doesn't Stop | Morden, MB Birth & Documentary Photographer

I recently had a stay at our local hospital, this Momma was SICK! While I was there I missed a lot. I missed gatherings with friends, trick or treating and many more moments with my family. While I was there it felt like the world just stopped, but life doesn't stop. The moments kept happening, even if I was not there to bear witness to them. I'm so happy that I have deep friendships and my family was surrounded by amazing, caring people. They helped to keep the fun going, keep the moments joyful and the smiles on my babies faces.

Our Days | Morden, MB Birth & Documentary Photographer

Autumn came so quickly and has passed just the same. The air is crisp and the days are shorter. The entrance is starting to pile with big boots, poofy coats and mittens galore. While part of me is not looking forward to the many months of cold that we will endure, I love the feeling of life slowing down, settling in and getting cozy. This past weekend brought Dad home after much too long of a time away and Nana and Papa after too many months of not hugging them. This weekend also brought sunshine and warmth. It brought impromptu dinners with friends, hockey games with the neighbours and couch acrobatics.

Documenting Life | Beauty in the real moments | Morden, MB Birth & Documentary Photographer

You may have noticed a bit of a shift in my work recently. My heart has always been with birth photography, I've enjoyed it more than any other genre. This really got me to thinking about why is it that I love birth so, so much? Besides the obvious emotion and extreme beauty of the moments available for me to capture, theres more. I love capturing moments as they happen, I'm not telling anyone what to do, my subjects are simply doing what they do. Real moments.

As a mother, I know so well the urge to "just do it yourself". Sometimes those tiny hands seem less then helpful. It can be so easy to rush from one task to another in an attempt to finish the never ending to do list. But sometimes, we remember to slow down, we remember to include, we remember that these are the memories that will be written in their childhood forever. These are the moments that your babies will pass down to their babies.
