"There are only a few things that I was sure I wanted to do or be in life. Being a mom has always been one of them. Both my husband and I agreed that we would try to get pregnant right away. But, as they say, "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry". It took a full year to conceive Stella and although that year was filled with disappointment each month that passed, I wouldn't change a thing. That year helped us to appreciate and realize that having a baby because you want one, isn't always a given. that year helped to make Stella's birth that much more of a gift and a blessing...
...She has truly been our ray of sunshine since the day she was born. Each day is brighter because of her. I can barely remember what our lives were like before her.
The one thing that I didn't anticipate is hw scary being a parent is. The love that you have for this little person is overwhelming and the thought of something happening to them is crippling. I mean, I, of course, expected to love my baby, but this love is at a whole other level than anything I have ever experienced. I cannot begin to put into words because it is a bond unlike any other. I find myself trying to stop and soak up every moment. The moments in front of Annmarie's camera were no different. It was such a happy day for us and I think that is captured in the images." Elizabeth, Mother
"It is always an honor to photograph a motherhood session for a client that values the relationship between her and her child more than any other visual element in her image collection. Elizabeth chose the perfect color palette and textures to showcase the powerful, quiet, and pure bond between and her sweet baby girl, Stella.
At just three weeks old, Stella was grasping strongly to her mother's fingers at times and at other times, she was sleeping peacefully in her arms. It was the most beautiful thing to witness - a mother and daughter building a relationship to stand the test of time." Annmarie Swift, Photographer
