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.

Motherhood Friends | Morden, MB Birth & Lifestyle Photographer

Sometimes, when you meet someone, you feel the connection immediately, sometimes that requires time and similar interest and common struggles. When I became pregnant with my second, I joined an online group filled with other women who were also expecting babies in July of 2013. As the weeks of our pregnancies passed and our babies came earth side, our connections grew. Through sharing stories of morning sickness, our labours and sleepless nights we found strength in our group. We carried, birthed and raised our babies together, as a village.
