Are you looking for a photographer for your cleft cutie?
My mission to show the world just how beautiful all babies are, including cleft babies, continues! I know first hand how scary it is to hear that your child will not look how you imagined. My son was born with a cleft lip and I imagined the worst because of the images portrayed of cleft babies in the media. Then, he was in my arms and I realized just how beautiful he is, even with the cleft. Ever since then, I’ve had a dream to change the world’s view on cleft lip babies and show just how beautiful they are. I’m thrilled to share this cleft baby photo shoot today!
I promise friend, you want to have portraits with your cleft baby to look back on.
Soon enough, they’ll have their surgery and you will be eternally grateful for having gorgeous, professional photos with your cleft cutie.
I added my most favorite of her toward the bottom, be sure to scroll all the way to see them!
