Georgia bound!

I am no longer booking sessions for El Paso – there are less than two weeks until we move to our new home! I have met some wonderful people here and I am so thankful for all of you. I will post here once I am ready to begin booking again in Georgia. If you have a session booked with me or we have spoken about a last minute booking, you are still good. Thanks, everyone!

Some updates.

Hey everyone! I realized haven’t really posted sneaks from sessions here since May (so here are a few!). It has been a busy few months! My husband deployed and we went on a month long trip back east. Now, school has started for the littles and so has soccer and gymnastics…and soon I will begin college courses.

I post more frequently on Facebook and Instagram (elizabethlomanphotos). Be sure to follow me!

I will be taking a small, two week medical leave in November. That break will not affect anything that is already booked for November.

Placenta encapsulation

Elora contacted me and asked if I would be willing to photograph the encapsulation process of a placenta. She knows that the art is still taboo to most and not really understood. By photographing the process, she hopes people may see it in a different light.

“Eating your placenta after birth is said to aid in postpartum recovery and help ward off the baby blues. There’s no scientific evidence that it works, but some mothers think it’s worth a try.” – babycenter.com

The top left photo is a potpourri mixture made by Elora to mask the smell during the steaming process. The third photo shows the sac still attached to the placenta. Bottom two photos show Elora giving the placenta a thorough rinsing. 2016-03-29_0013

After the placenta is thoroughly rinsed, Elora removed the sac. Top right shows the placenta baby side up as the next photo shows it mommy side up. After the sac is removed, Elora placed the placenta into a pot and left it to steam. 2016-03-29_0014

Here you see the placenta after it has been steamed. Left to completely cool, it is then ready to be sliced thin and placed into a dehydrator. The slices were in overnight to remove all moisture. 2016-03-29_0016
