Mama Hawk | Maternity | Parenthood

The more I photograph parents about to begin their parenthood journey, the more I fall in love with my job. Erin and J are seriously beautiful, inside and out. This was a styled shoot put together by Kate Juliet Photography at 48Fields earlier this month, and these two seriously rocked the lens. They are both avid runners, mama had even run 3 miles the morning of the session. So awesome! From runners grace to many giggles, Erin and J are so in love with each other and are excited to welcome their little earth-side next month.

This session was so much fun and the light was amazing!! There is nothing like working with the setting sun to achieve some amazing colors, silhouettes, and wonderful grain. I hope you enjoy and I, of course, included a couple behind the scenes images.

be inspired. love authentically. live boldly.

Sweet Isha entered the world as a true power house. Momma labored at home for a good 24 hours when her amazingly calm doula made the call to head to the hospital. I got the text I had been waiting for and left the house in a rush to greet them when they walked in. Miss Isha had other plans. Don't worry, she just wanted to meet  her family earth-side as quickly as possible.

Momma was so strong and faithful in her body to really trust the process, and her husbands driving ;). Her water broke as she was walking downstairs to get into the car. From there it was a rush to the hospital, in early morning commuter traffic! A mere 14 minutes after the arrival to the hospital the lively Isha made her appearance and quickly snuggled in with mom and dad. There is nothing better than watching how a tiny human takes in their surroundings after being placed on mom's chest and hearing dad's voice "out in the world" for the first time.

Isha has made this wonderful and caring family a party of 4. I can't wait to share their newborn story!
