Maternity & Hospital to Home Sessions

We didn’t set out to focus on Hospital To Home sessions however, the ‘year of the baby’ showed me, personally, how much I LOVE working with families from the very start.

SHOWING UP AT THE HOSPITAL HAS BECOME ONE OF MY FAVORITE WAYS TO BEGIN TO POUR INTO THE STORY OF FAMILY WITH MY CLIENTS. Building a relationship takes time & investing in EACH family’s story is where I am focusing my time & attention this year. I REALIZE THAT ONE OF THE MOST VULNERABLE TIMES FOR A NEW PARENT WOULD BE AS THEY ARE ACCLIMATING TO NURTURING, FEEDING AND HANDLING A NEWBORN DURING THE FIRST 48 HOURS OF LIFE.

I am honored to be invited into this space and time as a family, its something i hold with great regard and promise to show up ready to love & work with you all from where you are at.

if you need to nurse, nurse. If you need a moment to breathe as the baby cries, breathe. if you need a moment to hug your husband, go hug him while i focus on the baby. i will meet you where you are at.

a couple weeks later, i will visit you at your home…when you are settled in, adjusting to life at home with you new baby. at that point we will laugh about the lack of sleep, the crazy moments, i will listen to you share what you love most about this time and we will be sure to photograph these fleeting days, so when your little is growing up you can look back and take a deep breath and look how far you all have come.

so while we didn’t set out with our days to be a narrative from maternity to family…i am realizing, this is exactly where our days needs to be. focusing on the full story of you & yours.

and if you didnt do this with your first, thats okay…lets begin, today.

lets get started

"We treasure the photos and film Jessica + Ben created for our family. They captured the beautiful magic in our "every day real life" and articulated everything incredible about seemingly ho hum moments. For us, those feel like the ones we want to remember forever (and ever). We felt so comfortable the whole time, they have such a calming presence that made it feel like we could really be ourselves- we ended up with so many treasures. They have given us a way to look back on real life exactly how we want to remember it. We laughed a lot too- Beyond talented artists, beyond awesome people. We couldn't be happier or more grateful!"
