“These are the days I want to have captured. The days I feel so completely out of control and emotionally spent, yet so full of love and joy my heart could explode. I want to remember being outnumbered, the sound of their little voices, their sweet features, and the glimmer in their eyes over welcoming a new baby sister. The first few weeks after bringing a baby home have been some of the most magical days of my life. I wouldn’t want to pass up any opportunity to remember and treasure these memories forever. The talent behind the lens, Elle, is a dear friend of mine who has now captured three of my four babies in their early days. She is incredibly low-stress, relatable, and so good with kids which is highly important in a newborn session with multiple children.
After having my first two without difficulty 19 months apart, we suffered two back-to-back miscarriages. That was a painful, dark, tough season for me, balancing the grief with being present for my people. In His perfect timing, the Lord filled the deep well of grief that had been carved out of my heart with the perfect gift of sweet Caroline, the baby in these photos. She was the one we had prayed for all along, our joyful, spirited little girl. I remember just sitting and tearing up taking her in as a newborn, and I’m thankful to have heirloom photos of that special season.” Audrey, Mother
