A Miracle is Born – Raleigh Wake Forest North Carolina In Home Newborn Photographer

This isn’t my story to tell…I want these photographs to speak the words that I cannot seem to put together, but in order for you to fully grasp the impact of these, you need the background, so here goes…

This is my beautiful friend Harmony and her gorgeous family…when she was around 9 weeks pregnant, she underwent a single mastectomy and soon started chemo because when she learned that she was pregnant with her 2nd child, she also discovered she had breast cancer.  As you can see from these below photos, she gave birth last week to a healthy baby boy!

Harmony still has a fight ahead of her, one filled with more chemo, more surgeries, radiation…all while bonding with her new little love and being the best mother and wife that she can be.  As tough as this road may appear to be, she has so much love and support, that she will never be alone…and she now has this little amazing gift to show just how strong one can be…

When this journey began, most of our friends did not think that it would be possible to carry a baby to term, while undergoing treatments for breast cancer, but with the guidance from her oncologist, among others, Harmony knew that she could fight for not only herself, but for her unborn child…

and he’s amazing…just like his mother…

Newborn Avery – Raleigh Wake Forest Garner Cary North Carolina In Home Newborn Photographer

Oh how I love sibling shots…Emerson was such an amazing big sister, loving on her little sister, Avery, the whole time…she is such an incredible big sister and so gentle and kind.

I had a wonderful time with this family!  They were so welcoming to me and Avery was a perfect little sweetheart!  I hope that you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!  Don’t forget to watch the special video at the end of this post for a behind the scenes look at Avery’s in home newborn shoot:)

Newborn Julian – Durham Raleigh Wake Forest Garner In Home Newborn and Family Photographer

Most of my newborns are photographed when they are less than two weeks old, however occasionally parents decide after this time frame that their new little love needs newborn photos, which is where I happily step in!  I met and photographed Julian in his home when he was 20 days old.  Julian’s Mommy had followed my newborn prep instructions to a tee and Julian slept like the perfect little man that he is…seriously, he couldn’t have been anymore perfect!

Julian’s Grandmother was on hand from out of state to assist me, which was so nice, as we were able to incorporate some items from Julian’s Mommy (and also his Daddy’s) childhood. The 1st blanket you see Julian on was his Mommy’s when she was a little girl and the blue/green blanket in the following pictures was his Daddy’s when he was a baby…I love to incorporate special items into each in home newborn shoot that I do:)

Check out Julian with his Daddy in the food truck that he owns…let me tell you, that food smelled AMAZING!!!!!!!!!  Since we had Julian with his Daddy’s job, we had to show him paying a shout out to his Mommy’s job, wearing her stethoscope (she’s an ER doctor).

Lastly, be sure to check out the special video that I made for Julian’s family and leave them some love!

Father’s Day Surprise – Garner Wake Forest Raleigh Family and Child Photographer

It is always so nice to photograph families of friends that I grew up with!  I was so very excited when Nicole e-mailed me that she would be in town from Arkansas and wanted to do a session as a surprise Father’s Day Gift for her husband…I hadn’t seen the two oldest kids since the oldest daughter was 3 months old…and now they have a new sister!  We had so much fun playing at Oakview Park last week, being silly, laughing and showing off some potty training skills…haha!  These kids are so well behaved and I just wanted to spend hours with them!

Tim, I hope that you have an incredible Father’s Day with your gorgeous family!!!
