A little over three years ago, I met Jess. I met up with her after answering her ad offering her Doula services. I was pregnant with my third babe and felt I needed extra strength and support during the hours of birthing need. Little did I know when I made the call that I would meet an extraordinary person and it was one of those conscious moments where you know you’ve met them for a reason, there’s always a reason. Jess is that person you want to keep in your pocket and call on when you need a hug, an ear and hear words of encouragement or even a comforting tea. Jess has three beautiful babies, her third, Ziggy is 8 months old. He is delightful, super fast, super active and loves the camera, so it wasn’t difficult capturing that sunshine smile. What I love most about this photo session is that it was all about capturing the love and connection between mother and child which rarely gets witnessed in our every day happenings. This session was about nurturing the emotions post partum and documenting the every day bond Jess has with Ziggy and holding onto that because we know how fleetingly it leaves us, especially when we know this babe will be our last.
Thank you Jess for inviting me into your home and allowing me to document and share your special one. x
