Love & Strength

I don’t know about you but the last few weeks have left me drained…I am wiped. Between a torrential downpour of rain last week, a case of the sniffles in my house this week, the constant barrage of depressing news, and throw in bit of a lingering post holidays coma, and it makes me want to curl up and not want to come out for awhile. But…nothing make me looks at the world in a more positive way and hopeful that we can all come together for our future than witnessing a new little one’s first few days in the world (especially an extra precious one with a beautiful older sister.) 😉

These three ladies had my heart at hello. I have known their mom since high school and felt so honored to take their pictures at such an incredibly special time. However, with so much joy there is also heartache as she lost her husband to cancer after the birth of her first.  In a time when I think for anyone it would be hard to move forward, she created this precious gift and is fulfilling their wishes for growing their family.  She is inspiring, beautiful, strong, brave, and I can only hope to have even an ounce of her strength. They will grow up knowing how amazing their mom is, how wonderful their dad was and just how much they are loved. I know he is watching every day and is so incredibly proud. And thank you for giving me something so pure, so selfless, and so wonderful to cling to in this crazy crazy time…
