Right after I had Hudson, I started taking his photos and all my mama friends at The New Mom School loved his photos so they hired me too. At the time, I had no clue that I could actually make a living off taking adorable baby photos, hell I didn’t even know how to use my camera to its fullest potential but I did know I had a passion for this and passion can take you a long way.
I was actually writing a lifestyle blog at the time and used my camera more for personal than for business, which is how I met Alex. I interviewed her while I was pregnant and she invited me to take her classes. Little did I know that would literally change my life. Not only did I meet and become instant friends with her and the mamas in my class but I also grew a business from nothing and have made it into my dream come true. I stay home with my own babies, I snuggle other babies and I get to be creative the entire time. For me, it doesn’t get any better than that.
Now I get to photograph mamas at the New Mom School twice a month, I photograph Alex and her adorable family every chance I can, my business has grown more than I ever thought possible and I still get to snuggle babies.
To say that Alex and The New Mom School hold a special place in my heart would be an understatement. I could write on and on about how crazy it is that my life’s trajectory totally changed from a single email but it did and for that I am eternally grateful!
