Hey guys! I'm so excited to finally officially announce the details for the Mother's Day Mini session weekend! One of the most important things to me when I began planning this event was to keep it simple and stress-free. As a busy mom of three, I like life to be as uncomplicated as possible.
"What are nuns doing on the beach on a cold, windy day?" my friend asked. "Good question!" I said. Then I asked myself, "what was I doing on the beach on a cold, windy day?"
They were probably doing the same thing I was, which was getting away from the places one might expect to find me, for some introspection and nature. Nothing more.
I remember that day pretty clearly. I was mostly alone, except for the nuns and a couple with a dog. I sat on a naturally occurring dune chair for a while, staring at the frozen lake and thinking about the past that had brought me to this point. I made my peace with it, saw the nuns, took a photo, and went home.
What is a newborn herbal bath? Well, as it relates to my photography, it's a time set aside for mother and baby, when I draw a bath and add an mix of gentle, healing herbs for both to enjoy. Then I add some pretty flowers provided by the wonderful Sugarfield Flowers). Baby relaxes and I take adorable photos of a sweet little baby in the water. And because a bath with a photographer can be only so relaxing, I leave a second packet for mom to use at her leisure when she needs a little time to unwind and be comforted.
This is little Henry. Just perfect.
