Tacoma Newborn Studio Session | A Sweet Sleeper
Oh, what time of the year to celebrate! For most of us, we celebrate Christmas by spending time with our families, opening gifts, and sharing delicious meals. This family, however, had a little more to celebrate than that – they had the wonderful experience of spending Christmas with their newborn baby girl. What a blessing!
I had the joy of having this precious new baby in my studio for her newborn session. And wow, look at how gorgeous she is! Her cheeks and hair are just fabulous! Her mama and I had been chatting and planning for this sweet baby girl’s photo session for months before her arrival. We had a beautiful session planned, and her mama’s pose and prop wish list was simply gorgeous! Well, unfortunately, life can throw us some major curve balls and can change things on us when it’s least expected.
This mama had complications after her little one’s arrival. I can’t imagine the overwhelming stress these complications can cause, and I am so grateful that this wonderful family stayed strong throughout it all. Not once was giving up an option. One of the most inspiring moments for me was when her family and best friend rallied together to make this session happen – and they did it all as a surprise for this much-deserving mama! She had absolutely no idea what we were all pulling together to make her baby’s session a reality.
We knew how much these pictures would mean to her, as she has been looking forward to them for weeks. We wanted to give her a Christmas present that she could cherish for a lifetime. So, there was really no option – we all felt like this had to happen for her… and it did! Her wonderful support system pulled through by surprising her with a newborn gallery in the hospital right before Christmas. The family was so sweet to relay to me how incredibly happy she was, which made me want to just sit and cry (happy tears, of course)! I am so overwhelmingly excited that a whole bunch of super sweet people worked together to make a beautiful mama’s dream come true.
