Sage & Waverly | A Denver Motherhood Session

For a little while I've been working on the motherhood sessions and I have to say I'm just dead in love with them. Maybe it's my own motherhood tinting my impressions, maybe it's because I'm meeting the most amazing mothers, maybe its because this project is just so honest, real and full of the complexity of mothering.

Whats the best thing about mothering? “ You know when you’re right at that edge, and want to maybe murder your child? But then they do something so sweet and cute and you feel like your heart with explode for loving them so much?

These portraits are some true hearts work; I love to see the joy and the bonds between moms and their children. The patience, the tears, the kisses, the cuddles and of course, the tubs!

The Crying Baby | A Denver Portrait Story

Why would I want a photograph of my child crying? Don't we all want images of our sweet babies being perfect, smiling doll babies?

Sure. It's great to have images of your child looking super happy and loving their little life. Definitely. But as a parent, you know your little angel is not laughing 100% of the day. Some days are hard, some are full of struggles and wails and boo hoo babies. Those need extra hugs, extra snuggles, extra love that only we can provide. Those days are hard now, but as our sweet ones grow up , they turn to our arms less and less for comfort. Those damp, sobbing hugs will become a sweet memory of when we could fix it with a kiss on the forehead and a song.

Personally, I love the crying baby images. There's something extra true and real about them and yes, I make them of my son too. Ou power as parents is limited. We can't take away their sorrows, but we can hug them into feeling better and those days are numbered.

Before & After 2 | BTS on a maternity edit

Our second BTS editing blog is on a big favorite session this year, my maternity session with Kacey. Her session was so much fun to both shoot and edit; most images are corrected for tones, colors and more contrast. I was a big user of contrast filters in the dark room back in the day!

Remember, editing is there to enhance what you've already made. My editing process is based very heavily on my shooting process which, in turn, is designed to get in camera exactly what I want.
