"There is nothing sweeter or stronger than the bond between mother & son. When I met Mackenzie & her sweet son Nash, I was inspired by her gentleness & her confidence. The way she looked at Nash with his wrinkled little forehead & adorably long legs & arms. From the minute I met them I know how in love this mother was with her son. He was only content to be in her arms, the warm embrace & familiar smell of his mother.
With baby in one hand & a bottle in the other, she tried to get little Nash to fall asleep. Though initially longing for those sweet sleepy baby photos, we quickly realized how truly special the in between moments are, so needing to be caught on camera & kept forever. Those little moments of soft whispers to quiet her crying little one & holding him so close so that he feels safe. Too soon, he will use those little long legs to run around & play sports and I am so thankful for the privilege of capturing little boys first few days of life so that these sweet mommas can remember these days forever.
My personal story includes the love & loss of a sweet baby and therefore I am ever so much more keen to capture the moments of mommyhood. These moments are precious & I have realized that we don't know what tomorrow may bring, therefore treasure each & every day even the hard ones, for they make up a story more precious & beautiful than we could ever imagine."
