Can we make Maternity Monday a thing because this session deserves all the posts! This was such a beautiful + special session. Dale + I were so very honored to capture this special moment in their lives because this wasn’t any normal maternity shoot. It was a celebration of life, love, of perseverance, of dedication, of a long + hard fought journey to parenthood.
M + A have been looking forward to becoming parents since they got married back in 2013. They shared they had tried, unsuccessfully, over the following years + after experiencing heartache + heartbreaks, they decided to explore IVF.
It had been a couple of months after starting their IVF journey when they found out that their hard fought battle, the tears that stained their cheeks after another negative test, the nights they lost hope that their prayers weren’t being answered - all of that was gone because their long-awaited miracle was finally on the way! Having both grown up in CA, they knew they wanted to capture this memory in a place where they could be surrounded by the magic + joy that they could feel growing in M’s womb.
M+A reached out to schedule a session for both video + photo so they could share their amazing news with their friends + family! The love between these two is so life giving + Baby M is so blessed to have such amazing parents! I know they’re so excited to meet Baby M!
M+A had been Star Wars fans for years - so much they they got married on May 4th! It was only fitting that we commemorated Baby M’s first photo with the backdrop of the one + only MILLENNIUM FALCON! The force is strong with them…
M + A, Dale + I are so incredibly excited for the upcoming arrival of your young padawan + are honored to be able to help you share the news of your growing ‘ohana with your friends + family. Congratulations on your wish coming true!!!
