Happy #nationalbossday to me 😂 I think I should take myself out for dinner to celebrate! . In all seriousness though, being my own boss is tough! Sometimes I think it might be easier to have someone else telling me what to do and when to do it, but at the end of the day, I am so grateful to be in a position to run my own business and serve so many amazing people! I couldn’t be celebrating Boss Day without you! . Happy Monday, friend!
Sweet Pea sessions are almost here and I can hardly contain my excitement! Snowball fights have been added to the lineup of activities, along side pillow fights, reading Christmas stories, and enjoying cookies and milk. . Happy Wednesday! #clairewaitesweetpeas
Being invited to photograph any moment in a family’s story is such an honour, but it is especially humbling to be invited into the sacred, intimate moments. To preserve the most special memories of motherhood for the years to come. . I love photographing births and the hours in the hospital afterwards, I love being part of adoption celebrations. And nursing photos? Oh, be still my heart! . I often get asked about the logistics of birth and nursing photos, so here are a few things to know about these intimate photos. . 1️⃣ We will get to know each other well before I ever pull out my camera and take a picture! It is important to me that you are 100% comfortable with me so we can be sure to get the most natural, genuine images possible. We can meet for lemonade, chat on the phone, FaceTime or Skype! I will even send you my birth videos and nursing images so you know me as well as I am about to get to know you! . 2️⃣ These types of photos are not all or nothing! I have photographed plenty of births where I have stayed by mama’s head the entire time and the results have been just as beautiful as those who want images of their baby crowning. You are in charge and you tell me what you are comfortable with beforehand. And if that changes part way through the experience, that’s ok too! These sessions are all about you and documenting your motherhood moments. . 3️⃣ I only share what you say I can share! Any birth and nursing images that I share on here are shared with express permission from the families involved. You will have the option to approve the images and information that is shared from your birth or nursing session. I always love sharing these beautiful images, but never at the expense of making my amazing #clairewaitemommies feel uncomfortable! . Do you have any other questions about birth or nursing photos? I’d love to answer them for you! Just leave them in the comments below. And if you are ready to book a birth or nursing session, I can help you with that too! . Happy Tuesday, friend!
