Having spent years as a compassionate nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), tending to the needs of fragile newborns and their families, I embarked on a new chapter of my career as a maternity photographer.
My time in the NICU was filled with profound experiences, from witnessing the resilience of newborns to supporting parents through moments of uncertainty and joy. It was a role that shaped my understanding of the delicate nature of early life and deepened my appreciation for the bonds between parents and their babies.
As I transitioned into maternity photography, I found myself drawn to capturing the beauty and anticipation of pregnancy. My background in nursing provided me with a unique perspective, allowing me to approach each maternity session with empathy, sensitivity, and a keen eye for detail.
I understood the physical and emotional journey that expectant mothers undergo and sought to create a comfortable and empowering experience for them during photo sessions. From capturing the glow of pregnancy to celebrating the love and connection between partners, I aimed to create timeless images that would serve as cherished keepsakes for families.
My experience as a NICU nurse also instilled in me a profound respect for the miracle of life and the importance of preserving moments of joy and celebration. Through my work as a maternity photographer, I found a way to continue nurturing families and capturing the precious moments of their journey into parenthood.
Today, I feel privileged to document the beauty and wonder of pregnancy, creating images that celebrate the unique journey of each expectant family. As a NICU nurse turned maternity photographer, I am honored to play a small part in the remarkable story of new life.
