photographing my birth photographer

Geoffrey and I met and fell in love with Sasha when she was one of the instructor’s at our birth prepardness class. She was also a doula, mother to four, and birth photographer. She wore many hats.

Sasha was one of the few people that was present for the duration of my labour. Because she was there for the most important moment for our little family, I think that I will always have a special bond with her. So as you could imagine, I was honoured when she said that she would like to hire me as her newborn photographer. She was about to give birth to her fifth child!

After her son arrived, I waited a month before driving out to their farm. It just so happened that it was also her birthday. How lucky was I to be able to not only meet that little cutie, but to spend an hour with her on such a special day? I swear, sometimes I have to pinch myself just to make sure that this new path that I’ve recently begun is real.

These are just a few of those photographs. To book a session, please visit Prudence + Me Photography.

    • Thanks love. It’s just a snippet of the 300+ photos that I edited, and were the first few of the time that we spent in her bedroom. The ones outdoors with the whole family were really beautiful!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • A few weeks ago we were running around in short sleeve dresses. Now we're in jackets and hats. 🍂 A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend!
