When I photographed this sweet couple’s wedding last year, they had no idea we’d be meeting again so soon to photograph the arrival of their first child. The best surprises come in the form of little 7 pound, 1 ounces of baby love, though! And this sweet child has been prayed for from the first mention of her arrival. It’s a beautiful thing to see a baby come into the world, and it’s even more beautiful to know they are surrounded with the depths of love and attention this child has around her. We photographed her literally covered in the handmade love of family and friends – and finished the session with her soundly sleeping in the same wooden cradle that held her Mother’s Mother. The Grandmother she will never get to be held by any other way, but she will know well through memories kept alive through stories and photographs. Because these are the tangible ways of keeping the intangible alive. And the driving force behind this passion I live out behind my camera.
Welcome to the world, Abigail Grace. Yes child, you were prayed for, you will continue to be prayed for and you are oh so very loved.
