Made Awake-Baby Harbor | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL Newborn Photographer

I’ve been holding onto this beautiful session for a while. I photographed Sarah and Harbor a few months ago and was completely honored when my favorite motherhood online publication accepted my submission for a feature on their blog. It’s such a stunning session and I’m so excited to be among such a beautiful collection of motherhood photographers with a likeminded heart for motherhood and its role.

Please go take a look at my feature on their site and then get lost in all the beauty that The Fount Collective shares.  I share my heart for photographing motherhood there and I’d love for you to read it all. Here’s a tid-bit:

“I am passionate about photographing motherhood because I am passionate about the sacred roles of motherhood. Something miraculous happens in our hearts when we have a baby to call our own. A part of us is made awake that seems to have been resting. A dormant, secluded section that, once aroused, quickly seeps to overflowing all other areas of our heart.”

You’ll have to visit The Fount Collective to read the rest and see more beautiful images from this session.

Baby Lucy | Sarah Gray Photography, Tallahassee, FL Newborn Photographer

Precious Lucy was 15 days old when I went to her grandma’s house to photograph her on Saturday morning. She was perfect. Tiny. Smooth skinned. Her mama was glowing and exhausted and so.in.love. with little Lucy.

When I come to a home for a newborn session, there is something so refreshing to me about the newness of life and being so fortunate to be so close to it as often as I am. We stepped inside and went upstairs to a room with a big, bright window that allowed the morning sunlight to pour in. Give me a good window and we can make beautiful images. And I LOVE how these images turned out of sweet Lucy.

Welcome to the world, precious girl.

Zoe, 6 months

This sweet girl is getting cuter and cuter. Her family lives in Atlanta and I get the blessing of photographing her every three months (as part of the baby plan) when she’s down here to visit grandparents. We met at my favorite local park, Dorothy B. Oven Park, and spent some time under the beautiful oak trees taking pictures of her newest milestones. She’s a doll. Also, her mama is dear to my heart. When my own girls were babies, she was a blessing for a few hours each Monday morning so I could get out of the house and run errands, go sneak off somewhere and edit photos, or just take a breather. A wise woman once told me that one of the ways you successfully make it though the early years of parenting your sweet babies it by taking a lot of breaks. That advice has proven to be one of the many keys to making those earliest years most enjoyable. I love my babies hard, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need mommy-time too. Zoe’s mama was the vessel that provided those moments of respite for me early on and I am forever thankful for her.

Happy 6 months, Zoe!

Mother’s Day, 2015

Happy Mother’s day to the mommies celebrating their first mother’s day with a new baby. Some of these little ones made their mama’s a mommy this year, while others of them helped make it sweeter by joining their siblings. To each of the mom’s represented here, for all you do: the diapers you change, the tears you wipe, the tummies you fill, cuddles you give, sweet shampoo you rub gently onto tiny soft heads, pacies you find in the dark, cheeks you stroke, socks you match, and the bounce-and-sway motion you’ve adopted in everyday life… your little ones are learning to trust you, to love you. You’re doing amazing work and I hope you are told it often. You are incredible, mama.

Happy Mother’s day.

And because I’m a sappy mess this year with a new little one of my own, I’m celebrating all those milestones along with you. As my mother’s day gift to you, please enjoy 50% off any purchases from your newborn, baby plan, maternity, or family session gallery taken in 2014/2015.
