To say this session was special is a massive understatement. Liz originally reached out to me wanting a newborn photo session for the “rainbow baby” they were welcoming. If you already know what that means then you, or someone close to you, has probably experienced the overwhelming tragedy and joyful celebration that comes when you lose one precious life to later bring another into the world. For the Reed family capturing these moments was more than just welcoming gorgeous newborn Alexia into the world, it was also a stepping-stone in a journey of healing and celebration.
I was welcomed into their brand new home by Alexia’s big sister Sasha. This bright and busy little button hadn’t seen her freshly decorated room yet (the family is yet to move in) and it was my pleasure to capture her exploring it for the very first time! Her parents had decorated it with endless treasures for her to discover and it was clear that this room, along with baby Alexia’s nursery, had been a labour of love.
In fact everything about this session spoke of Liz and Stuart’s love for their family. For their two beautiful girls, and for Gabriel, the baby boy that resides firmly in their hearts.
Liz and Stuart – thank you so much for choosing me to capture this incredible page in your family’s story. You made me feel so welcome and it was truly my pleasure to provide these photographs of your wonderful family.
