There aren’t many greater feelings of longing and pining than that of waiting for a child to love and raise. As something that I now find is far more common than I ever knew, infertility has become such a strong, driving force in my business as a newborn photographer.
I get so excited for each and every client that brings their new baby into my studio. It could be that they easily got pregnant with their first, second, or third child, or it could be that they’ve adopted a child to round out their family. Those families are so precious to me, but none is more precious than the couple who brings in their newborn for whom they’ve waited years. Whether adoption or medical avenues were their choice, the excitement is still the same, and it’s always such an honor to document this special time for them.
Brad and Heather are friends of mine from church, and I’ve been praying for them to be connected with a child, their child, for a couple of years. Heather gave me the exciting news about Baby Hannah on Thanksgiving morning, and I cried tears of joy for this sweet, sweet family.
Here are some of my favorite images to date, if for no other reason than the fact that I know that this baby girl is with two Christian parents who prayed for her years before she was born, and God made sure that she found her way to them.
