Our next adventure!

We have had so many adventures so far… When we moved to Alabama 7 years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be a successful photographer, have 5 kids, home school them, be planting a berry patch, or a fruit orchard, have bee hives, chickens AND about to build a farm house on 17 acres of land…

Our family is finally complete, and in less than 2 weeks we will be moving out of the only home 3 of my kids have ever known, and in to an apartment close to my favorite photography location.  Our land.

This video is to help us remember right now, before everything changes. Our dreams are on our doorstep and I can’t wait to document every beautiful detail along the way!

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – When 3 turns in to 4

How in the world do you slow time down!?!

It seems like just yesterday that I was taking this little boys newborn photos. <3

That was THREE years ago and now this precious boy is going to be a big brother!

The moments leading up to such a profound and beautiful change are so completely precious.  It’s hard to appreciate it sometimes, through the haze of the physical discomfort of pregnancy, but these moments are worth relaxing in to.  Every part of our lives shift when we bring a new little soul in to this world.  Documenting “right now” before everything changes is such a beautiful way to look back and remember how beautiful every single stage of your growing family felt.

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – 1 Year Little

I met Melody a couple years ago in Hobby Lobby as we waited in the fabric line to get something cut.  I looked down and she had the cutest little girls decked out the most gorgeous clothes!  I asked here where they were from, and she confessed that they were samples that she had made for her boutique children’s clothing label Petticoat Patch.  We talked the whole time we stood in line, exchanged business cards and have been friends ever since! lol

I was so happy when she asked me to take some photos of her with her youngest to commemorate his first birthday.  Happy Birthday sweet boy.

Soooooo many things to say.  Sooooo many photos.  Sooooo much love.

Where do I even start?

I have had these images in my head for SOOOOO long!  FINALLY the stars aligned and I can’t help but be over the moon for how they turned out.  I love newborn and baby photography, but I also freaking love natural environments in the light of sunset.  It’s just magical.  For a year now, I have been dreaming up how I could photograph newborns and babies outside, but I knew I needed to do it in my way.  I knew I needed to fill it with connection, and movement and emotion.  I knew I needed to create something I had never seen before outside of my imagination.

When I was talking to Tori about styling this session, I think it went something like “So I will have a basket for your baby, and have you in a yellow dress with a really full skirt and then I will plop you in the middle of a field with tall grass and wild flowers!”.  Thank goodness she said “Sounds good. I trust you.” Haha!

But seriously.  I don’t know how I could love these any more…  So I beg you.  If you have a baby (Newborn all the way up to “not quite sitting up yet” age) and you want images like these, CALL ME!!!  Lets make some magic in the golden light of sunset. <3

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – Sunnah

I had the immense privileged of  photographing this little ones mama before she was born.  It was a gorgeous evening, and her mama was just glowing!  Baby bump maternity sessions are such a special time, full of anticipation and expectation.  Both of her parents talked excitedly of her arrival, and as I watched her daddy help her mama through the field with care, I knew this little girl would be the centerpiece of their most treasured moments once she arrived.

Children have a way of enhancing and multiplying our love in ways we never knew was possible.  We as parents, can do things we never thought we could.  I know we are all capable of cleaning up poop, but before you were a parent, did you know you could do it, not only with love, but with excitement??? When my first was born, he struggled with high bilirubin levels and had to stay in the hospital for a bit.  After learning that poop was the #1 best way for them to flush it out of their system, my husband and I had a little party with every single diaper. lol

I know…  poop…  But what about sleepless nights?  What about financial sacrifices?  What about the fact that your social calendar is turned on its head, and that “mom body” will never be quite the same as it once was?

Having children sounds like a big huge drag…  Except that all of those things are just what we see from the outside.  These children we bring in to the world, dig out the best parts of us.  they inspire us to do all those incredibly hard, yucky, uncomfortable things, and so often, we find that we can do them with JOY!

These little ones grow us parents in to selfless, caring, nurturing people.

… and I honestly can’t think of anything more beautiful than that.

Oh, this precious little boy…  Every detail chosen, was full of sentimental history.  From His name, all the way down to the blankets used, have deep roots in the family he was born to.

I can’t explain how beautiful it is to watch 2 people, who have fallen in love, so hard and quickly, with a new and completely dependent little soul.  The selflessness and strength that rises up, in shadow of unconditional adoration can take your breath away if you are watching for it.

I remember with my first, awake when I should have been sleeping, staring at the little miracle that God had given us.  So perfect in every detail.  Watching him as his blond eyelashes fluttered with his dreams.  In those moments I can remember feeling like I could hardly breathe from the weight of my love for him, and the reality of the 18+ years of responsibility.

It’s overwhelming

It’s exhausting

It’s a love story I never tire of seeing…

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Lifestyle Photographer Jenni M Photography – Kai

Why is it that mamas anticipate and mourn a baby’s first birthday?  Why do we constantly weigh the excitement of what is to come (independence, growth, talking, walking, learning) against what will be lost. (snuggles, dependence, contentment, peek-a-boo, baby curls, teething)

Well, maybe you don’t, but I do…  My own little one is 10 months old right now and I am trying to soak up every single second.  It seems like when they turn 1, they are all of the sudden, on the go, and my baby, the one that has looked at me like I am the center of their universe, slips away just a little more every day.  That baby is replaced with a toddler, full of wonder, excitement, independence and an insatiable desire to learn.

BUT

I LOVE BABIES!  I have ALWAYS loved babies…  Why do they have to grow up so FAST?!?!  I am so incredibly excited for this next season of life that is about to be upon us.  It will be the first time in over 10 years that I will have a bit more freedom to travel (without the kids), but this “baby season” has gone by in a blink, and I am sad.  You would think that after 5 kids I would have gotten my fill. lol

 

My first year sessions are all about celebrating those milestones.  Exploring, standing, spunk and following what they are interested in.  This little guy was absolutely precious.  If I could end all of my sessions in the water, I would.  He had a blast and didn’t want to leave. <3

Happy birthday buddy.  Just know that you are probably breaking your mamas heart just a little bit every day just because you are one day older. <3

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Maternity Photographer Jenni M Photography – 3 Generations

It isn’t often that I get to include Grandma and Grandpa in a family shoot, but this sweet Mama really wanted to get some generational photos of the 4 most important men in her life.

I can’t help but feel incredibly sentimental when I look at these.  I have quite a few cell phone shots of my kids interacting with their grandparents, but these photos made me pause.  I think I may need to make time to document the generations for my own family.  We currently live close to grandparents, and great grandparents so other than needing to “make time” for it, I really have no other excuse.

Lets be honest, getting ready for photos isn’t something that ANYONE looks forward to. (myself included)  I mean, I personally have to find 7 different outfits that coordinate together, do 2 girls hair, make sure everyone is wearing matching socks (yes, that is a thing in my house) and get myself put together. (which is a whole other thing since I typically don’t “do” my hair) lol.

But these…  documenting your visual history… it’s so worth it. <3

Huntsville & Madison Family Children Newborn Maternity Photographer Jenni M Photography – Sange & Madhu

Any time someone contacts me asking about documenting their newborn, I typically ask if they had considered a maternity session as well.  Some say no, and I don’t push at all, but some say yes.  I ask for 2 reasons.  First, is that I offer a discount when a maternity session is purchased along side of a newborn session.  They go hand in hand in my mind, and I want to offer an incentive to those who are want to document their moments with me.  The second reason is much more sentimental.

This time, right before the birth of a new little life, is so precious.  It doesn’t matter if you are welcoming your 1st babe or your 5th.  Once that little soul is born, your world is changed forever.  Even though it is the best kind of change, (the kind that forces you to grow, to love and to stretch in sometimes uncomfortable ways) having a child changes you on the inside just as much as it changes everything on the outside.

So I ask…  “Would you like to add on a discounted maternity session?”, not because I am just trying to “up-sell”, but because this BEAUTIFUL reality that you know right now will be no more so very very soon.  With all of the anticipation, soreness of pregnancy and waiting, it is over in a blink.  This quiet time prepares us for all that is to come.

It is worth documenting.

It is worth remembering.

It is beautiful.
