This job is 99% good times- and I’m brought in to help capture those good times and #good vibes . But every so often it can be hard. Like- my life and mind and heart get taken over by your stories. Shortly after I took her mothers maternity photos, this little love was born early and spent 5 weeks in the NIC-U- but that’s not her story. Her story is that she’s strong, and brave, and a fighter. Her story is that the beginning was hard but it built her and her mama and her daddy, into warriors. Her story is that she was prayed over and for, long before they met her- and by multiple folks whom she may never meet but wanted to see her thrive. So yesterday when I held her- I held her to my chest for a little while longer then I normally would and her mama and I talked about big things like life and #fate and divine plans. And THAT is what makes my job more than a job. It’s an exchange of lessons and love and human experience. And it binds me to my clients and I’m the most grateful for that. This isn’t just me posing babies, this is me getting the privilege of introducing them to the larger world and telling their stories. Meet Ellie, her energy is pure light and fire.
