She sent me a message, we set a photoshoot date for the next weekend, and little did we know, a new arrival would come so shortly after…
I met Carrie and Seth at a fun location on a Sunday evening…gorgeous mountain views and a sunset behind it that creates this magical glow for the desert in front of it. As I talked with the mom and dad to be, I learned that they had tried for years to have a baby on their own and were finally successful with the help of IVF treatment. Carrie was now 36 weeks pregnant and they were so ready to meet their little girl. It was such a touching story, and I loved getting to know Carrie and Seth as we documented this special moment that they were uncertain if it would ever come.
Little did we know, just two days later on Tuesday, Carrie would go into labor and sweet little Remi would make her way into the world! I posted a photo on Instagram from their session, and Carrie instantly commented saying she were in labor at the hospital! Crazy!! I’m so glad we got our schedules to coordinate so quickly because baby girl came so unexpectantly!
Carrie is such a strong woman and encouragement to me from day one of meeting her! Her & Seth’s story is so powerful and the way they are using their story to speak into others is amazing! I am so happy I was able to be a part of their dream, and give them timeless images of this precious time in their life.
