"Joy comes to us in ordinary moments. We risk missing out when we get too busy chasing down the extraordinary."
– Brene Brown
This family quickly made a place in my heart. Mom found me online and contacted me, hoping to get some family pictures before Christmas. When I asked to know more about her husband, son, and herself, she explained that she and her husband were a little on the older side when it comes to being newer parents, had been married for a while, and after multiple losses, finally gave birth to their miracle baby boy. He was the biggest joy in their life and while they did wonderful and fun things before having him, he was the most important part of their lives thus far. They valued their time together and she just wanted this sweet season of their lives to be documented. I was immediately so excited to meet them and photograph them.
I knew their story of grief, triumph, and strength was such a part of who they were and I also knew that there would be love radiating from them. It didn't take long after physically meeting them to see just how grateful they were to have each other. This little boy will always know how much he is cherished and wanted and he has a whole community of friends and family that feels the same. What a wonderful blessing. It was such an honor to be able to take these pictures--one that show their happiness and love for one another. These are the times where I feel so overwhelmed with gratitude to have this job and meet extraordinary people along the way.
