Hey there. I'm Bree, and I hope my story helps you understand why I do what I do.
Maternity, birth, and newborn photography was never going to be my focus. Then I had a baby. And it was life-changing. Don't call me a cliche yet though, because I wasn't one of those moms who loved being pregnant, or who was super prepared. Yes, I was excited for the baby, but the pregnancy…not really. I became a mom 4 years ago when I married my husband, and I thought I got the best of both worlds…an incredible son without the stress of labor! I'm being a little tongue-in-cheek, but you get the idea.
Then, I had her, our sweet Addie, and I was floored. I just got it. I finally understood the magic of carrying a baby, and those crazy fast nine months meant SO much more.
But I couldn't go back and get any more pictures of those 9 months together (I was too modest and unsure of my changing body to really have any photographs taken of me). I couldn't go back and hire somebody to photograph the weekend of her birth, even though it was the most amazing, emotional, and breathtaking of events.
Fortunately I got my wits about me and did hire a newborn photographer. But I don't want anyone else to look back and wish. So that's why I'm here…to photograph these precious times, so that you can always always always return, through your photos, to the magic of becoming a mom; whether for the first time or the fifth.
