Advice to My New-Mom Self (Part 1)

by Alex

Becoming a Mommy for the first-time is one of the biggest life-altering moments of your lifetime. It's exciting and overwhelming and amazing and exhausting all at the same time. Everyone has their own advice to share, which can also be really overwhelming for a new Mom, trying to weed through it all. 

We asked our Little Nest family (built of so many Moms!) for the advice they'd wished they had when they first became new Moms. The response was so amazing, that we've decided to split it into a series of blog posts for you!

Modern Mom: My Infertility Story

by Laura

Welcome to our Modern Moms series! Throughout the week leading up to Mother's Day we are featuring mothers with unique stories to tell who are part of our Little Nest community.  Know someone who should be part of it?  Submit your story to Alex at Little Nest Photo dot com.

Becoming a mother was a long journey for my family, as I know it has been for so many people. For years we celebrated with others as pregnancy announcements appeared, waiting patiently for our time to come. As a children's photographer, the reminder that we were struggling with fertility was daily and stinging.

Why Photography Makes the Perfect Mother's Day Gift

by Alex

We may be a little bit biased, but this Mother’s Day, we think that this is the year that family photography makes the most perfect gift. Not only does it allow Mom to freeze time and hold onto those fleeting moments with her children, but family photography is truly an heirloom that she will treasure forever.

What could be a better gift than that? Especially when it captures the way her youngest snuggles into the nook of her arm, the way her children laugh with each other, or the way her husband looks at their children.
