First of all, I’d like to give thanks to the midwives and the amazing birthing community of Santa Cruz. This photo would have never been possible without them, especially not without the space that Roxanne Cummings offers through her birthing classes, thank you Roxanne for getting us all together!!!
Only a few months ago this photo was just a dream, a surreal thought locked in a room with 12 couples sharing dreams of love and happiness with their expected new family member. -One lucky baby moved to Colorado (Storm), and baby Emma left before the photo was taken.
These 10 little babies all met while they were still in their mommies’ bellies, after all of them made it into the world, we got together to celebrate our darling little miracles.
Black and white portraits seem to be favorites for most, how could I disagree?
For some odd reason, pregnancy has made me a bit less modest…So in lack of another pregnant person, I decided I had myself.
With the last photoshoot I took I was so excited to share the outcome that I skipped telling a bit of my story and of how I got started on this photographer path.
Ever since my husband allowed me to play around with his new camera 8 years ago, I got mostly attracted to nature. I like to space out on scenery, imagine that I can be all over the landscape myself. And from shooting seagulls, I went all the way to underwater photography to finally land on a new career path as a family photographer.
I’ve always felt nervous taking photos of other people, but for some reason I always end up surprising myself with the results, so I finally gave it a shot and that is how littledarlingphoto.com was born.
Being pregnant has really slowed me down, and sitting in front of my computer editing photos of adorable families, pregnant women, and babies has become my favorite activity for the last few months.
This week I am finally done setting up my studio anticipating that the cold weather won’t allow me to take as many outdoor photos as I’d like; for that reason I want to share my favorite shot of the last beach sunset photo session of Jen and Matt, they are due on December 21st and of course I can’t wait to capture the first few days of their little baby.
