Walk with me through the waiting and perseverance of James and April.
This beautiful couple of Gainesville, Florida,
will be married for ten years on December 30, 2017.
They have wanted for seven years to become parents.
And they have waited.
Finally, with in vitro fertilization (IVF)
and “God’s perfect timing”, as they gratefully reply,
their desire is on the way!
These two parents are bubbling with excitement over their
long awaited little ones- yes, two!
Fraternal twin girls.
Can you imagine being blessed with and anticipating
and then being prepared for two?
This is an awesome and unforgettable time for James and April as they wait.
The emotions are real.
I dearly love involving dads in maternity photos
and capturing some of the depth of their real feelings.
The love for their unborn babies is written all over those smiles.
James was good enough to stay for the whole session
and he doubled as an assistant for me at times,
tossing April’s wind blown gown.
April’s sister Mara also has twins, identical twin boys.
I can imagine that the entire extended family
is thrilled with the bonus of another set of twins,
but this time it is a set of twin girls.
A grand adventure is about to begin for James and April.
And they are documenting their story with photos,
love letters written loud and clear to their unborn babies.
Photos are a way of feeling and catching details forever,
the ways you glanced and wondered,
the smiles you shared looking down at your little ones,
so that years later…
what you value will not have been forgotten!
The dreams you dream
and the prayers you pray for your growing family matter…
The time of waiting and wonder until the miracle of new life
is finally placed in your arms…
These are moments that you never want to forget.
The journey to motherhood is a beautiful one and well worth documenting.
Pregnancy is such a touch of heaven.
If you had a doubt, doubt no longer.
Celebrate YOU and the precious LIFE inside you with maternity photos.
To capture the beauty of glowing mamas
while new life is stirring within them
is truly my honor.
