How I connect with other Moms
I know from my own experiences that I have had two extreme differences, one being a vaginal delivery at the Ottawa Birth Centre and the other via C-section at the Ottawa General Hospital with the twins. They were both very unique with different challenges, and not similar, but they taught me that motherhood, and sometimes the way you become a mother doesn’t change. I have such a huge advantage I feel as I was able to experience most of the types of births you can have, so I truly know how these women are feeling when they step into the studio.
For this session, it was purely something that I knew deep down that the client would appreciate me coming to her. Her baby boy was already 6 weeks old and she knew that she wanted to capture this stage of his life before he grew out of the little newborn stage.
I don’t often get requests to come to clients home as I charge a fee to travel, but I know why these repeat clients opted for this option was one that a new mother shouldn’t have to experience just after having a baby. It’s hard to see it in these happy photos, but like so many mothers that I talk to, they are dealing with other issues that arise from pregnancy that not too many people tend to talk about.
