Portland Family Photographer: Feels of 2018
It seemed 2018 was the year my family photography work really took off. I was pregnant and couldn’t shoot as many weddings, so that opened me up to the change. It was such a significant year, because my husband and I had been trying for a second child for over 5 years, and through the magic of IVF we were finally able to get that baby we’d been wanting for so long. This was the year after the worst year, when we mourned the loss of babies that didn’t make it. Uhh – making babies is hard, and beautiful, and joyful, and also strange that we’re even able to create a separate life inside our own. I can only hope these photos shows a little of all of that – about how hard, beautiful, joyful, and strange being a parent can be. The first and last photo and a few in between are of my own children, because we’re all in this crazy parenthood thing together.
