Photographing Bray, Leslie, and their family has been an honor since I first started working with them way back in 2008. Fast forward 7 years and 2 kids, and they are just as much fun as ever. It was a joy to see them again, as well as their ridiculously cute kids.. despite the two of them giving me a run for my money! I got a few more “outtakes” than usual, which I had to include at the end of this post
I cannot even begin to tell you how much joy it brings to my heart to share this session with you!
A little over 2 years ago I was contacted by Matt and Chelsea through an organization that I volunteer with called Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. They were expecting a little girl, but she had been diagnosed with Trisomy 18, meaning that she wasn’t expected to survive much longer than a few minutes. I showed up at the hospital just minutes after she was born to photograph the three of them together. I was at the hospital a little over an hour, and when I left she was doing amazingly well! (See the original post here.) Well, hours turned into days that turned into months, and sweet Ella is still here and thriving! I could not have been happier to get to see her and her parents again, especially as they are expecting another baby. Are they not the most beautiful family you have ever seen?
