Throughout my entire career of being a newborn photographer, I finally got the opportunity to photograph a full motherhood journey here in Kaiserslautern. It’s really hard to describe how much this entire process has filled my heart with joy and how honored I feel. Although I don’t think I will specialize in birth photography, I would love to still offer them once we get back to the states. All 4 of these took place within a 5 week timeframe and it’s crazy how much their lives have changed.
I learned so much about a woman body and how unpredictable birth is. I won’t go into detail but I ended up spending 14 hours at Landstuhl Regency Medical Center with the Morales family. Although things did not go as planned, Levi Alexander Morales arrived into the world on October 17th, 2019 at 4:05am. I came back just shy of 48 hours later to capture some in hospital photos before Josh and Caryn brought their baby home as a family of 3. About a week and a half later, Levi slept through his entire newborn session!! It was a miracle!
Before you scroll down to see all of my favorite images from Levi’s newborn session, I have to give a big shoutout to my Shutter Lover babes for all of the support with photographing my first birth. I went live in our Facebook group in a mii manic because I had no idea what to expect. I received a lot of guidance and I am so thankful for them. <3 Josh + Caryn, thank you so much for trusting me to capture such a special chapter in your lives. I can’t even begin to explain how grateful I am and I have to say, parenthood looks greta on you both! <3
I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my.. Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]
One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]
If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
What is the first thing an engagement photographer thinks of when a client says they want to do their photos in Washington DC? Sunrise. Daily I go back and forth between whether or not I like sunrise or sunset better. I have to say though after Julie + Jordan’s engagement session, I prefer the lighting […]
I am a new photographer to the KMC area and I am so happy that Josh + Caryn chose me to capture their maternity session at Burg Lichtenberg! I just got back from visiting family and friends in Minnesota and Maryland on Friday and got to jump right back into photography yesterday with these two. […]
I had the honor of being the photographer for a family friends wedding at the beautiful 7 Vines Vineyard that is located in Dellwood, Minnesota. I could start off by telling you about the wedding day but I am actually gonna give a little back story. I met Ashley and her family back when […]
