I was really looking forward to this shoot, first and foremost because I just love photographing babies, but also because I was very intrigued by the mom’s job title that was in her email signature… Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Inspirational Speaker, Author and Gratitude Expert.

It was the Gratitude Expert part that really caught my eye.  I’ve recently done a lot of reading about happiness, and one of the key elements is to truly be grateful for everything you have in your life, every day.  I’d recently read books like The Magic by Rhonda Byrne (author of The Secret) and The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, so I had to take care not to bombard my client with questions the moment she arrived.  After all, our meeting was about photographing her precious baby. But then I realized it was perfectly on topic, because isn’t Gratitude one of the most overwhelming emotions we feel as a new mother? She shared with me how grateful she is for her long-awaited and very beautiful baby boy. Just look at this face – can’t you relate?

Like me, I’m sure you want to know more about this mom’s intriguing job! With her permission, let me introduce you…

Lorraine Miller brings her passion for health, balance and gratitude to her clients. You can find out more about her services on her website Nourish by Nature, check out her books From Gratitude to Bliss and The Bliss Cleanse, and look into joining her upcoming group cleanse this fall.  I can tell you this: after an afternoon with this special lady, I was reminded to be more mindful of the abundance in my life and to practice expressing gratitude for all that I have – especially my family.
