Coordinating Maternity & Newborn Shoot / M. Newsom Photography
I met my friend Meghan while looking for a photographer for our maternity session. So I was blessed when I found that a friend & photographer all in one person. She is generous and gentle and loves my family well. I've shared some of her pics here & here & here, and you might have seen a couple of these before, but I love how she carried out my desire to coordinate our maternity shoot with our newborn pictures. One of my favorite parts about working with her is she always comes with a creative vision + the means to carry that vision out. She doesn't just come equipped with a camera bag, but with ideas and lots of experience.
I knew I wanted to use my Genet scarf from live fashionABLE. The scarf is named after the woman who made it, a woman who was a part of the sex industry, but now through the making of this scarf is "able to embrace her role as a mother." You can read Genet's story here. After reading, you'll know why I love (besides the fact that it is beautiful). You can find Genet's scarf and other women's scarves (and some cool leather products named for their creators) for purchase here.
