Last year, Sabrina came to me to shoot a momma + me session. We made plans and talked about incorporating a gender reveal since she was also 12 weeks along! The day of our session, she received some devastating news. At her doctors appointment, the nurses were not able to find her little girl's heartbeat.

After her procedure, I met with her and her son, and incorporated her daughters memories in the photos. I watched this beautifully strong woman share her story with me, tears rolling off her cheeks, while holding her son so close. I felt for her. I shared her story on my Facebook and the stories started pouring in. So many mommas experiencing such heartache, relating over their experiences, and grateful for this strong mom who showed the world her vulnerability!

As a photographer it is about so much more than pretty pictures on your wall. To me, it is about preserving memories, moments, and most importantly feelings. The feelings of joy, intimate love, and even sorrow. Sabrina welcomed her baby girl this year and I am so grateful to the amazing mothers that trust me their stories!
