A Little Faith

Earlier this year, a sweet mama-to-be reached out to me about a pregnancy announcement shoot.  She wrote about how she’d already lost two babies, and was praying and believing that this would be her “rainbow baby”, which comes after the emotional storm of a loss. Given our own family’s story, I felt privileged to be asked to help them capture this moment in their lives.

I was so excited to hear from her again many weeks later, that they were ready and feeling great for their shoot!  Just entering the second trimester, they’d done genetic screening that showed a healthy baby.  Praise Jesus!!  The joy and love shared between this couple was palpable, as was their confidence that God is in control and has good things planned for them.  I’m grateful that baby-loss families can rely on an infinitely loving God to carry them though both the pain and joy in this life.  And with a healthy baby on the way, there is so much reason for celebration!!

Though She Be But Little, She is Fierce!

“Though she be but little, she is fierce” – William Shakespeare

This adorable little family was a joy to shoot, particularly since they are friends of mine.  This Shakespeare quote came to mind while I was editing their images.  Their daughter’s bold gaze is just mesmerizing!  When I took the last shot below I was afraid the backlight would spoil it, but it turned out to be my favorite from the gallery. Those blue eyes and pale skin, she’s such a beauty isn’t she?!
