Another beautiful round belly and even more beautiful baby on the blog!
Maternity and Newborn sessions are the most exciting and magical. Seeing and capturing the love between parents, the wonder and expectations during their maternity session always fills my heart with memories of my own pregnancy and how amazing it was to feel my baby moving inside me. Such a miracle my body was capable of! Growing a new life. The life I could not wait to meet and hold in my arms. When my little guy was finally born we truly became a family. He’s our pride and joy, the fulfillment of those dreams and expectations we felt when we watched his little feet push on my belly from the inside and listened to his heart beat so fast through the fetal monitor.
The memories of my pregnancy and my son’s birth are some of the most precious and I hold them close to my heart. My little baby will be 8 years old in just a few weeks. Time flies by so quickly and takes our babies away leaving first children and then grown up teenagers in their place. Documenting these precious memories in timeless photographs is the only way to remember what is lost in the sea of time.
Now when my baby boy is a second grader I get to enjoy his written notes amongst other things. He has always been a very loving and sweet child but some of the things he says still catch me by surprise and bring tears to my eyes. Like the note he gave me a few days ago. It was a small piece of paper folded as a card. Inside he wrote:
“From your mind to my heart”
“My Mother gave me life, I gave her a reason for life”
He drew a big heart on each side. How could you not choke up seeing those words written in his childlike writing? Where does he get such big words? And so true.
Anyway, congratulations to these proud parents on the birth of their beautiful baby girl. She is so pretty with her blue eyes and red hair! She did not feel like sleeping that day but she was that much cuter for it 🙂
