Hope for Baby Marion

You may remember this couple from a shoot I did early this year... This mama was expecting at the time, and had a beautiful baby girl about three months ago. Unfortunately, they have been going through any parents worse nightmare for the past two weeks, as that sweet baby was on life support, having suffered brain and optical hemorrhaging. I don't normally share these kinds of things, especially on this page, but I'm making the exception this time. The mama is not only a photo client, but also one of my best friends since the 6th grade! This family is going through a really difficult time, and they could really use some help and positive thoughts and prayers right now. Please take a minute to read their story, share, and if you are feeling giving, donate too. Thanks so much!

P.S.- This is our daughters together just about a month ago...

And here's their fundraiser page that I'm keeping updated for them…


Gemma Grows, Part 11

22 months

24 months

Yup, my baby is now TWO! The first year kind of felt like a year (lots of sleepless nights I guess??), but the 2nd year flew by at lightning speed. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be mommy to this most amazing child. She's sweet, smart, beautiful, clever, silly, fun, kind, and just plain awesome! Happy 2nd birthday Gemma! You've opened up and grown my heart in ways I never knew possible.
