trigger warning: infant loss
When Stephanie reached out to me to work together, she was forthright about how special this pregnancy was to her. Of course, everyone who experiences the joy of parenthood feels a certain weight of importance and joy surrounding a pregnancy. However, after losing your baby, at any stage in pregnancy or life, the gravity of the journey I would imagine is woven in every step of the way. I wanted to make sure that this session was full of joy, life, and truly captures the beautiful energy between these two parents. Twin Ponds Greenhouses is always so accommodating and generous with using their beautiful greenhouses for my sessions, that it was so beautiful to be surrounded by so much growth, life, and sunlight. We all were cracking up the whole time, reminding us that life is precious, it’s fleeting, it’s important, and fragile, but that at the core of it all is shared joy and shared love. These two are incredible people, and I know without a doubt that they are going to be amazing parents to their baby girl.
