~ Psalms 139:13
The photo session that I blog about today is really a special one. A friend of about 20 years had her baby about 3 weeks ago and I was so blessed to have the honor in taking her son's newborn portraits. It was such a special moment, with a special family, with a special little boy. Her story is below and how God blessed them with a precious son.
When our beloved son was born last month, my husband and I felt like the luckiest and most fortunate couple on this planet. Having tried to conceive for years with no luck, we finally placed our hearts in the hands of an amazing fertility specialist, whom we now characterize as an ‘angel walking this earth.’ After our first round of in vitro fertilization and all the prayers, fears, tears, injections, ultrasounds, surgery and medicine that accompany the process, we were blessed to receive the life changing news that we had long awaited – WE were PREGNANT! After the most beautiful nine months of pregnancy, our precious William Atlas was born on September 10, 2010 at 10:11p.m. and weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces and was 20 ½ inches long. I will never forget the look of irresistible adoration on my husband’s face when he gazed into William’s eyes for the first time, which provoked an instantaneous reflection on the past year and I am eternally grateful to him for all of his patience, Kleenex-providing, support, encouragement and unconditional love.
Bursting with pride and wanting to share our joy with the world, I could think of no better photographer to capture our emotions than Erica, a friend of over twenty years. Erica’s attention to detail and passion for photography is palpable and we will forever remember our newborn photo shoot experience with her in our son’s nursery while my husband and I hugged tightly as she photographed our little prince. Thank you Erica Rose Photography!
