The Newness of Life During a Pandemic

This season has been one of confusion, loneliness, and even perhaps grief. The quick reality of life having to come to a halt is…confusing. We live in such a fast-paced culture that being forced to slow down is a big ask. And then you throw in bringing new life into this world, but not exactly in the way that you imagined your birth plan.

We have friends who are pregnant with their first baby and are understandably let down that their wonderful baby shower plans moved to a virtual shower through Zoom. We have another friend who was in the hospital with complications for 34 days and then birthed her baby 6 weeks early. The list goes on and on…but the point is: In such a difficult and confusing time, our hope is to serve you well! Though we cannot be there to celebrate your newest blessing, we would love to offer timeless images to you by editing some of the sweet moments that have already been captured!

We want to support you!

We are here to help support you in any way we can! Knowing we cannot be with you and take your images for you, we want to gift you with what we are able to do! We had many births and newborn session lined up, but they didn’t work out unfortunately. And listen, do not stress over not being a professional photographer, not having a “good camera,” or having a good angle. These things are nothing compared to priceless moments that you won’t ever get back! We all know that BABIES DON’T KEEP! Who’s crying?!

From the time Covid-19 began (March 23rd) until May, we are offering to edit your iphone / DSLR images. You may upload up to 10 images through this form: #laborinthetimeofcorona

These are all cell phone images! Technology has come a long way, amirite?? Document these moments and submit the form with up to 10 images! You won’t regret it!! 🙂 You can complete the form here. I believe a google log-in is required. If you do not have a google account, you can sign up for free and then submit your files!

There is a donation link at the bottom of the form if you would like to donate however, it is not required in order to be a part of this project! We would love if you sent this link over to any friends you know who did not / will not have the chance to have a photographer to preserve these moments before their precious baby grows! The link to donate is is here: www.venmo.com/LSphoto

Thank you to Laura Foote for the inspiration of this project!
