There are so many wonderful moments that I feel extremely blessed to be a part of and photograph. One of the most amazing things I've had the opportunity to photograph and witness are the births of my little nieces. Many of you may recall Lucy's birth story and Lola's birth story. What an emotional roller coaster, yet it's such a spiritual experience, photographs do not do it justice. I was thrilled when Jill and Kenny told me that they wanted me to be there to photograph the birth of their second baby girl Jade. What an intimate experience, to be honest I debated whether or not if I should blog these, but the images are too remarkable to not share (plus, I have the blessing from Kenny + Jill to share). Not to worry, I kept it clean!:) So here you go, let the images speak for themselves and tell this wonderful birth story of Jade Matilda!
I'm SO happy I get to have another beautiful niece in my life! Jade Matilda this aunt already loves you so much!
Many of my blog followers already know that I like to use TOTALLY RAD ACTIONS! to color tone my images, these actions help make my images look "RAD"-tastical and it's super easy to use, especially when you're using the RadLab to work these actions! I've also had a bunch of requests from followers to post the recipe I used on Jill's last maternity shoot. It also just happens that today is the LAST DAY to take advantage of the TOTALLY RAD ACTIONS! Mother's Day sale, so I thought I'd do a post featuring an actual mom along with the action recipe I used for this particular shoot (note: my recipes are constantly changing to fit the look of each individual shoot, that's the beauty of Totally Rad Actions!). Also, I have to say that I'm proud to be an actual "Radvocate" because 1. I LOVE the Totally Rad Actions! and 2. I get a little change in my pocket for each person that clicks through my blog to purchase their own actions or RadLab (the RadLab is worth every penny and beyond easy to use, don't worry, the lovely people over at TRA have a tutorial on their site that makes it even easier to use)!
