How lucky am I that I get to do this for a living??? Believe me, there is not a day that goes by that I do not thank my lucky stars. And as a busy momma, I don’t get out much. Not even to see friends or family. So sometimes I get to see them when they book a session with me. Y’all don’t know how much that means to me; truly.
Caden is such a sweet, even tempered little baby. He was so good during our session (can a baby even be bad? Is that even a thing?). He let me pose him and cuddle him and snuggle. Fun Fact: I pretty much cry at some point during every newborn session I do. I am so overwhelmed by the beauty of all of it. Of life, of this new little being, these incredible, pure and innocent little souls. And I get to be with them during the most magical time of their lives (in my opinion).
And the moms (dads too of course), but the MOMS. My appreciation for and awe of women is immeasurable. I don’t know if it is because of my own experiences. I guess that must be part of it. But women…what we do. What we go through. The changes to our bodies, to our mind, to our emotions to our SOUL. We don’t come back from that. Once we go through pregnancy, we are forever changed. There’s no going back. Sure, this may be my opinion, but I feel it in my own soul. How lucky am I that I get to be with them, sit with them, hold their babies, at probably the most vulnerable time in their life. To listen to their stories of childbirth. Of fear, of strength, of sadness, of overwhelming love and joy. We are souls having a human experience and I feel that most when I am with a mom and her new baby.
So I may have gone off on a tangent there, but HI! My name is Joan Marie and it is a pleasure to meet you. This is me… and
THIS IS CADEN…and OWEN!!! Have you EVER?!? <3
