Photographs are often considered people’s most prized possession. It is the albums people would rescue from a burning building, the images they can’t bear to lose if their computer crashes. This tells us so much about the important role of photography in our lives and our desire to stay in a moment a little longer. Photography is a gateway to reliving these memories. The one true way we can freeze time.
Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory – Dr Seuess
We preserve through images important life events and these become the chapters of our story, each chapter woven together to form a narrative. Pregnancy without a doubt is the greatest metaphor for turning the page in your life story. The next chapter, new beginnings, possibility, change, beauty and wonder. This is something you need to capture and remember forever.
Growing up with a fascination for nature, I quickly decided that a creative outlet to express my love for the world around me was if I had a camera in my hand. Not always technically perfect, but creating art that is honest, simple and real. As a Mum, I am more aware than ever of how fleeting moments can be, how quickly time goes by and the importance of holding onto these moments and passing on and sharing these memories.
One of my favourite things to do is to flick through old albums at my Nan’s house, or after a busy day you will find me scrolling through my Instagram feed. All my most favourite memories in one place, seeing them always feeds my soul.
So I am here to offer the Mamas of Perth a chance to hold onto this most sacred time in your lives...
“Bec has an incredible talent for capturing the beauty of motherhood and her calm and friendly nature made our session so easy and relaxed. I felt so comfortable allowing Bec to capture this special moment in my life. Bec was fantastic with communication and did everything to accommodate me. I was delighted to receive my photos in a short time and was blown away by each one. I am so grateful to have these beautiful memories, I highly recommend her, it is totally worth it and was such a wonderful experience” Liron , Perth Western Australia
The philosophy of Barefoot Birth is embedded in my photography style. You won’t see any technical gear or flashy editing techniques and I am self-taught. I simply want to help others savour these delicious moments in your lives and I see such beauty in pregnancy and motherhood.
So I have decided that throughout the year I will be offering the Mamas of Perth Mini Photography Sessions. Keep an eye out on Instagram and Facebook for when these become available and for locations, times and all the details. It will be at the super affordable price of only $85 per Mama per session and only 5 sessions will be available to book so be sure to get in quick!
If you have a tribe of Mamas who are interested in between advertised times – be sure to get in touch to make this deal available – a travel fee will be incurred for this depending on location of the shoot.
These sessions will be available to pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy as well as those in early Mamahood (first 6 months) who would like to capture breastfeeding and those special cuddly moments together. If your pregnancy is currently being captured with smart phone bathroom selfies or hubby lacks the creative spark to intuitively capture those special moments and you want to actually BE in the photos with your baby, then perhaps these mini’s are for you!
“Bec captured some precious and beautiful photos of my pregnancy, I honestly couldn’t be happier with them. Bec’s down to earth and loving nature made the day incredibly enjoyable, I cannot thank her enough” Summer, Jarrahdale Western Australia
“Bec took my photos when I was 34 weeks pregnant, I wasn’t feeling sexy or beautiful, just big and heavy. The idea of a photoshoot wasn’t a high priority. In the end I loved every single minute of it. Bec was calm and relaxed and we even shared a few laughs too! It was so special and I couldn’t be happier with the memories I now have as a keepsake forever, I am truly grateful to Bec, her patience and her talent.”
Paige, Heathridge Western Australia
“Bec is extremely talented at what she does. My maternity photoshoot was perfect and I couldn't be happier with the final product. She made me feel extremely comfortable and beautiful. I am so grateful that she captured this special time of my life”. Liz, Coolbellup Western Australia
“Bec, thank you so much for my breastfeeding photoshoot! The day was relaxed and fun and I was totally comfortable. The photos are amazing and I will be highly recommending you to everyone. Thank you! Thank you!” Heather, Claremont
