I have to brag on this amazing new family…
When you get married, you often will repeat these words,
“Through thick and thin, in Good times and in Bad” and it’s relatively easy to feel on top of the world when you say this. You feel pretty strong, pretty invincible as you the hold the hand of your new life partner. Time passes and then, you (might) have a baby. This feeling of strength, that you can do anything, has completely changed. Your heart is no longer protected inside of you, it is now in and all around this little person. There is a sense of complete vulnerability. Your every hope is for your child to be healthy and safe and happy in your protection.
Say hello to Traci & Phillip’s baby girl Olivia. This little angel spent 118 days in NICU; Parents out there, you know it’s hard enough to be away from your newborn for 1 or 2 nights. She is doing so awesome and is now happily situated at home in the arms of her amazing parents.
I am typically the one to rock newborns during the sessions, getting them back to sleep, but Olivia was noticeably more comfortable in the arms of her Daddy or Mommy. For being so young, she just knows who is who. It was precious.
Traci & Phillip, you’re doing great! Thank you so much for letting me photograph your beautiful daughter and one of your first family portraits. Wishing so many blessings your way!
