Happy Mother's Day | Fort Collins Family Photography

Fort Collins Family photography, Miranda L .Sober Photography, Mother's Day 2016

To all of you lovely mama's out there, I want to wish you a beautiful Mother's Day. You deserve all the hugs, kisses, flowers, and giggles in the world. I hope you are spoiled on your day.

As many of you mamas may know, I'm completely baby c-r-a-z-y. I dream about having my own children one day. I am patiently waiting (my husband may disagree, haha) for that special day to come, but when it does, I know I will be on top of the world. So until then, I live through each of you and your gorgeous daily lives as mamas, hoping to document that timeless beauty for you. I cherish you, and your babies.

'Someday' by Alison McGhee and Peter Reynolds is one of my absolute favorite children's books. My own gorgeous mama gifted me this book not long ago, making it even more special. I owe all I know as a daughter and wife to her, she's the best. If you haven't read this book already, I've shared it's story below. Grab the tissues sweetheart, you're going to need them.

One day I counted your fingers and kissed each one.

One day the first snowflakes fell, and I held you up and watched them melt on your baby skin.

One day we crossed the street, and you held my hand tight.

Then, you were my baby, and now you are my child.

Sometimes, when you sleep, I watch you dream, and I dream too...

That someday you will dive into the cool, clear water of a lake.

Someday you will walk into a deep wood.

Someday your eyes will be filled with a joy so deep that they shine.

Someday you will run so fast and so far your heart will feel like fire.

Someday you will swing high - so high, higher than you ever dared to swing.

Someday you will hear something so sad that you will fold up with sorrow.

Someday you will call a song to the wind, and the wind will carry your song away.

Someday I will stand on this porch and watch your arms waving to me until I no longer see you.

Someday you will look at this house and wonder how something that feels so big can look so small.

Someday you will feel a small weight against your strong back.

Someday I will watch you brushing your child's hair.

Someday, a long time from now, your own hair will glow silver in the sun.

And when that day comes, love, you will remember me.

My Favorite Things, In-Home | Fort Collins baby photography

Fort Collins baby photography, MIranda L. Sober Photography, lifestyle newborn photographer As I've mentioned before, those in-home lifestyle baby sessions just tug on my heart strings. So, as a newborn, baby and family photographer, I of course absolutely love what I do! I am able to travel to your most sacred place, and document your most precious moments. It's got me head-over-heels, so in love with your family and what makes yours unique. Here are just a few of my favorite things about in-home lifestyle sessions:

  • It's Where the Magic Happens

Within those walls is where the magic happens. It's where your family is free to be who you are. During lifestyle in-home sessions I am able to witness the beauty of your everyday life. It's the little things, like rising from from bed and reliving your morning routine day after day. It's where you bring your newborn baby from the hospital. It's where your little ones learn and grow. It's where you kiss each tiny nose goodnight before all of those sweet dreams fill the night sky. It's yours, and it's magical.

  • It's Special to You

Unlike outdoor sessions, your home holds a special place in your heart. Your photos will not only share who you are as a family, but share an important backdrop as well. Your home is your home, unlike any other. It's unique to you and your family, and says a lot about who you are and what your family enjoys.

  • Your Comforting Place

I have found that many individuals are more comfortable in front of the camera while they are in the comfort of their own home. It can seem less awkward and feel more natural to be somewhere you feel like you. Often times, I'll ask you to pretend like I'm not even there, like a fly on the wall. This way, I can photograph you and your family in your natural state, documenting those true emotions.

  • Those Details

If you know me, you know I drool over for those little details! Photographing in your home allows me to give myself a little tour (I'll ask first ;) ), and take photos of what I believe resembles your family and shares who you are. Like a song reminds you of a life event,  or a smell reminds you of someone special, my hope is that these detailed photos will one day set free even the smallest of memories you shared under your roof.

What I Want You To Know | Baby Photographer Fort Collins

As a Colorado photographer specializing in newborn, children, senior, engagement and family photography, I love watching families grow. It's part of my everyday job, photographing those big and special milestones or those years that just pass by as your children grow up all too quickly. From that moment you decide to spend forever with the one you love, to giving birth to your first born, to having everyone home for the holidays, those moments come and go. Sad, but true. If there is anything I wish for my friends, my family, my clients to know about being your photographer, it's these: • Not Every Session Is The Same

Every session is different. Although you may select a photographer, perhaps me ;), based on photos you have seen within their portfolio that you adore, it will be different. It will be different because it is YOURS. Your session is about you and the ones you love. It's all about the things that make your family, the honest, the messy, the beautiful. No one will have the same love your family does. No one will have the same smiles or the same hearts. No one will have the same story. That is what makes yours, yours. And it's worth documenting.

• I Will Do My Best

There is not a single session I photograph that I don't pour my entire heart and soul into. From your very first inquiry through the entire process, I am dedicated to you and your family's photography goals. I will go out of my way to create images that allow you to not only see, but to feel. I want to share your story and beauty with the world around you, because it deserves only the absolute best.

• I Jump Up And Down Like A Kid In A Candy Store

Before, during, and after your photography session. I may even through out a little squeal of excitement here and there. I am always so excited for your photography session, but even more excited to share your images with you afterwards. Knowing me, you'll see a glimpse of your photos before you even get home ;) Or sometime very soon following.

• You Will Cherish Your Photos Forever

Every single photo that is taken you will cherish, because not every photo is the exact same. Each and every image holds it's own pretty details and is a part of your story as a whole. It may seem like an oxymoron that I, as a photographer, would try to convince you that photographs are something that you NEED. But it's not, and you do. Even before I made my journey into the photography industry, I was proven this true. You are not guaranteed tomorrow, and neither are the ones you love, so those images may one day be the only thing you have, what you NEED to remember their every perfect feature. To remember fragments of your life way before the hustle and bustle of today.

• You Mean The World To Me

You do. I promise. And I will make that very apparent. Even after meeting you once, you will forever be a friend in my heart. In a world where everyone is a photographer, your options are endless. However, by selecting me, by trusting  me as your photographer, by supporting me and my dream, You. Are. Gold. Thank you. xo Baby Photographer Fort Collins, Miranda L. Sober Photography
