I met this Momma two months ago when she answered a model call for my maternity portfolio. I refer to her as the Calvin Klein of maternity photos. She was stunning, all the way to the end. I delivered her maternity photos the night before her little one entered the world and she looked absolutely beautiful. Who knows where she was hiding all 9 lbs. 1 oz. of Theo!!!!
Theo was a perfectly wonderful little model. He smiled, posed beautifully and didn’t barf on me! Added bonus because any newborn photographer knows that pee, poop and barf are all part of this “glamorous” job!
For me, the best part of this job is watching the emotion in the room, really soaking it up. The fullness of a new mother’s heart. The gleam in her eye when she looks at the life she created. The tender way she rocks and soothes her new one. I’m telling you, my life as a photographer is a darn good one!
