Numinous Beginnings - New Boho Luxe Portrait Series

Numinous Beginnings Photoshoot by Amanacer

This is Mandi before Mila.

I'm excited to share with you some captures from a new bohemian-luxe portrait series I shot from the heart. You see, two weeks ago I was distraught to learn my 9 month pregnant friend hadn't had a SINGLE non-iphone photo taken of her during her entire pregnancy. It just wasn't right! This beautiful, hard working babe deserved better, not to mention I wanted her daughter to have some special photos of her mama during that special time before she came to the world.

So I grabbed a few of my favorite bohemian looks from the "boho closet", snapped up my makeup brushes and zoomed over to Mandi's house. We had a lovely afternoon while her hubby barbequed with his buddies, and in the end I hope she'll always cherish these photos from one week before her firstborn transitioned from planet Mandi to join us on planet earth. Here's to numinous beginnings.

I felt as though a numinous beginning, that mysterious garden that brings forth it all, was now.

Such tenderness, in those last evening rays, whispering "Mila, Mila, Mila." Before she came to us, the liquid presence of her joy was already felt in a thousand tiny handshakes.
