August has been my busiest birth month to date. I took on more birth clients this month than I ever had in the past because each one was so unique and special ( I still have one more to go at this point).
I limit the number of births I take a month to ensure that I am available when you go into labor, no matter what time of day it is. I don’t book much of anything else while on call for birth for the same reason.
Sarah Beth is local photographer and dear friend. She is an extremely talented newborn and birth photographer (in fact we are each other’s birth back ups!), you need to check out her work! Sarah Beth Chamberlain Photography.

What I really love about documenting birth is that each and every birth story is so unique and different. Even within the same family, you just never know how things are going to go. There is so much story to tell, and so many details to each birth story that make it unique and special. Sometimes when we are in the midst of birth we are so focused on being in that moment that we don’t see just how strong we are or do we have the privilege of seeing all that is going on around us, and that is part of what I strive document. I want you to remember the moments from your birth that will transport you back to that flood of love, those first moments with your baby, and to see the strength and love present around you!

Throughout my life I have been so blessed in having met so many incredible human beings, people that have been willing to open their hearts and their stories to me, people that I believe undoubtedly were placed in my life for a reason. This is one of those families. I talk some about how we connected when I blogged their maternity session a few months ago, but from the time that Mandy moved to Las Vegas and began looking for a newborn photographer there are just so many cool coincidences.

I have been dying to get this birth up on the blog! There is just so much story and so much love woven throughout it all. If you have been following me over on my social media sites, you may have remembered me talking about this family when I posted her maternity portraits. Chris was deployed for the majority of their pregnancy and it literally was down to the wire, not sure whether he would be able to come home for their delivery. Luckily, he came home just over a week before Susan went into labor which worked out really well in everyone getting settled again and working through all that goes into a household with a deployed spouse.

Already Loved This beautiful mama found me after they moved here to Las Vegas and were in search of a maternity and newborn photographer. She reached out to me early to be sure she could schedule time for both, and I appreciate that. Because of the nature of births, the need to keep my calendar […]

I have been hanging on to this story for just a bit as I really wanted to post for April during Autism Awareness month. There are so many powerful, encouraging, and deep stories to share and I hope that out of them education and awareness as to what the many faces of Autism looks like, and how it is lived out with each individual family!
I am a local Spectrum Inspired photographer, which means that I am a part of a group of photographers that offer photography sessions to families living on the Spectrum as a way to raise awareness and education about autism. Please go check them out and the incredible work they are doing all over the world!

I am so excited to share this beautiful session with you for a few reasons!
First of all, I will be documenting this family’s birth and it is coming up soon! I just love sitting down and talking with families about their expectations, previous experiences, and what moments are most important to them in documenting their birth.

I have known this beautiful mama and her family for a long time! I work with Donna at the hospital, she is an OR tech on labor and delivery unit here in Las Vegas. She has gone on to be such a dear friend and is such an incredible soul inside and out. I knew her back when her triplets were born, and when I think about her as a mother, fierce love just totally comes to mind. These boys and her family are her passion, her true love, and her whole world. Her face just lights up when she talks about them!
I haven’t documented them in years, and so was over the top excited when she decided to book with me this year. I know it is a big investment hiring a family photographer and I am always flattered when families choose me, even when they know me! She made her family session a priority for the winter and it was so fun talking about outfit choices and locations with her in the weeks leading up to her session.

A couple of years ago I was fortunate enough to be become a Spectrum Inspired photographer. You definitely need to check out this organization and the amazing work they are doing for families on the spectrum. As photographers and storytellers, the opportunity to share the stories of families living on the autism spectrum is truly their passion and one that is near and dear to my heart, so it was a no-brainer deciding to apply as a photographer. I was so happy when I was accepted as a Las Vegas Spectrum Inspired Photographer into their program serving in my area.
If you are a photographer and would like more information on becoming a Spectrum Inspired photographer, please don’t hesitate to apply, there is a huge need and I promise you that you will be changed for the better!
