Little Rock-Photographer for New Moms - Christine and Her Son

June 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Last summer I had the opportunity to spend a beautiful day photographing Christine and her son in their Little Rock, AR home. I did not post photos at the time because I was not sure that a boudoir page was the proper place for them. I have decided that these images are a perfect fit for my website, and here is why. 

My photography is about intimacy, and what is more intimate than a mother's bond with her infant? I use my camera, lighting and experience to help a woman pause from her hectic, whirlwind life and and reconnect with her beautiful, sensual side through her personal, intimate photographs. My photography captures the wonderful, tender intimacy of a loving couple during their boudoir session. In this case my photography is about creating beautiful images of the intimate connection between a new, loving mom her child. I think it all fits.

Christine is a full time Postpartum Doula and CLC. She is a doula for Arkansas Family Doulas - http://arkansasfamilydoulas.com . My session with Christine and her son lasted several hours and was very relaxed. We started with a little playtime on the patio of their home so her son could get to know me a little. That was followed by a quick snack.

Bath time was next and this little guy had a lot of fun splashing water and playing in the bubbles! After the bath it was time to relax and get ready for his afternoon nap.

I went into the living room and enjoyed time speaking with Christine's friend Sondra while Christine and her son enjoyed their peaceful nap. In about an hour they came out rested and ready to go again. We set up the following set of images, some of my favorites of the day.

I had so much fun working with them. Twenty or thirty years from now Christine may be sharing these images and memories with her daughter-in-law as they wait for the arrival of her first grandchild. 

Thank you to Christine's friend, Sondra, for helping throughout the day. Sondra is the owner of Arkansas Family Doula's. If you live in Arkansas and are expecting I highly recommend that you visit their website to learn about how they can help you as you bring your new family member into your home.
