The meaning behind the name…
I started my photography business in the beginning of 2008 and at the time the biggest decision was naming my business.
I re-branded at the end of 2015 to Alaina Nunez Photography, yet I just couldn’t drop my Simply Sweet Moments, so I decided to keep it for only Maternity, Birth and Newborn sessions.
I questioned myself trying to figure out why I couldn’t move on from a name I picked at the beginning of my photography business journey. Here it goes…
Lets start with the expecting Glowing Mama
I am simply amazed with how our bodies are created to hold, grow and nurture another human being. What… a… blessing! I know we don’t always feel beautiful with all the stretching ligaments, sciatic pain and leg cramps… But seriously mama, this time is precious and you are beautiful so lets capture this sweet moment!
“OMGOODNESS!!! These are so incredibly beautiful!!! Thank you so much for capturing this. It’s so much more than I could have imagined!!! IN LOVE!!!” -KA
The time has finally come to meet your little blessing!
I feel so incredibly privileged to document your baby’s Birth Story. It’s hard and totally not necessary to see what is happening around you while your body is doing the work it needs to. But there is a story that is going on around you. The expression on your moms face when you’re breathing through another contraction. Your birth support team who is helping you relax. The moment you set your eyes on your baby for the first time! The look your husband holds on his face that says “Wow, my wife is amazing!”
“Oh we are all in tears!!! Thanks so much for perfectly capturing one of the most important days of our lives.” -TB
“I adore the photos! They are precious to me. Thank you so much for these memories, they are beautiful.”
When I think of a fresh new baby, and how best to capture this sweet yet short newborn stage, I want my photographs to be simple.
Gorgeous lashes, scrunchy faces, big yawns, fuzzy shoulders, wrinkly fingers and toes…
How about how your sweet little one puts their hands on their face, sleeps with a furrowed brow or always stretches out that one leg that use to get you right in the side?
The moments that show your mamas voice calming your precious babe… The moments that show the awe and excitement a new little person brings to the bunch… the moments that show really “how tiny” your now 2 year old use to be.
These are the Simply Sweet Moments that make my storytelling mama heart happy!
So that is why I started out with this name and that is why I will keep it… Because I love photographing these moments.
