“I closed my eyes and grabbed his hand for one last push, his tears etched into my heart, “it’s a girl”, he said, with awe. She had always been mine but my understanding of the gift of her was only just beginning.
Emma Grace. My little girl. Over the 42 weeks I spent waiting on her content little self, I prayed for her to be filled with joy. What a delight it is to see her bright smile and sweet personality develop in line with that prayer!
As I’ve learned my role as her mama this year, I am overcome with gratitude for the treasure that is our relationship. It felt so fitting to celebrate with the joyful beauty of this sunrise session, capturing our sweet moments together. I tell her, “I love you because you are mine”, nothing she can do will ever change that. She is a gift of giggles and grace. I am the luckiest that I get to shepherd her little heart for a lifetime!” Lindsay, Mother
“I had the honor of photographing Lindsay, Zach and Emma Grace a few days after her birth and then again for this, their mother-daughter session to celebrate her first birthday. Emma Grace’s sweet smile and blue eyes are captivating just like her momma’s and it was such an honor to be there for these great milestones in their life. Lindsay is a talented wedding photographer and was even there to capture the birth of my daughter. It is wonderful beyond words to walk alongside fellow business owners, photographers and mothers during these sacred and joyful parts of life. Photography has changed my perspective on motherhood and vice versa. What a treasure to preserve these moments that celebrate life! Life is worth celebrating and remembering and what makes my job so incredibly meaningful.” Andrea, Photographer
