It’s a funny thing, chatting with clients before I meet them. Imagining, pre visualising and preparing for their session. Without even realising I am creating a picture of them in my mind, but not of how they might look, but of how they will be. This can be the difference between a smile that is vacant and an expression that beams love and thoughtfulness. Images that remind people of how they felt in that moment.
Then I meet them for the first time. New parents, not sure of what is about to unfold, bringing with them the most precious thing in existence, the gift of a new life. I always appreciate the way they trust in what I am doing for them. Trust that I will capture just what they are after in this critical time, so soon after birth. Trust as I guide them into positions, knowing I am only doing so for their benefit. Trust that I will take good care of their baby while I hold them, cuddle them and soothe them to sleep. Trust that I mean what I say and with the deepest authenticity, love to hear their stories and am truly rewarded in the work that I do.
I continue to be blown away when I meet the most wonderful clients. People who give me the warm fuzzys. On this morning I met the most beautiful people. Beautiful in a way that is beyond anything you can see. It is something you feel. This little boy is very lucky indeed. He will feel loved. He is loved.
