Newborn | David Böhmer

“Never let the odds keep you from doing
what you know in your heart you were meant to do.”
-H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

You have met David already, if you have missed it here is his Fresh 48. He was extremely chilled during this whole newborn session. He gave a few moans when we fiddled too much and he needed some milk but overall a sweet, happy, content baby. Any photographers dream for a newborn session.


How do we get to be content? Content with life, in a state of peaceful happiness……?       Now this, will never happen if you live to be someone you are not meant to be.

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you don’t like your journey, embark on a new one. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start loving yourself. Stop over-analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful and deserve to be heard. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people; we are united in our differences. Ask the person next to you what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Live your dream and wear your passion. And lastly, live and love in the truth.

I am still learning what contentment for me will be, but I am enjoying the adventure along the way. I don’t know what my future holds and no matter how hard I try I won’t know until I get there. I’m learning to live for today because yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.

Dietmar, Linda and newborn David, enjoy every moment of this adventure. May you always be happy and content!

“I have been delaying writing my birth story. It has taken me a while to process the events from that day, and the days and few weeks following, and to be okay with not writing a ‘perfect’ story with perfect English. I truly hope that being real about the latter, and that which follows, will make at least one other mom out there, facing a similar experience, feel less alone in having had a ‘good but not perfect’ birth

I have had the privilege to work with many wonderful doulas and I would like to say thank you! Thank you not only for your servant heart but also for what you are doing for woman. In a place of vulnerability you aid us in being strong, in a place of insecurities you reassure, in a place of fear you speak hope!
