Rochester, Minnesota Photographer - JMEG Photography | Newborn Lifestyle Session - Allen Family

One of my very favorite things about being a lifestyle photographer is creating honest portraits of life. Being able to grow with couples from the beginning of their love story, all the way through the messy, chaotic, intimate seasons of parenthood.

I love being a part of every season, but If I had to pick one thing to be my favorite, it would be the transition of mother’s in waiting to the shift of new life. New parents, new family, and embracing the new normal of all things family. Creating intimate portraits of the beginning is my greatest honor, and with the Allen Family, this was no exception (see their Newborn Lifestyle Session below! xx)

I remember waiting so impatiently for the day I’d meet my baby boy, and today it seems so long ago that I first called myself, “Mom.” Now I feel like I barely remember my name some days (can I get a witness?) In this season, during this moment, on this day, and among the chaos, errands, tantrums, snuggles, and curiosity for all things, I’ve learned that each day holds an opportunity for newfound beauty and adventure. I’m so grateful to not only be a part of this life, but to have the chance to be here for yours.

Mal + Cody, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your journey. I love you both and you’re doing such a great job.

Welcome to the world, Baby Wyatt. You are so loved. xo
