I have photographed many pregnancy and newborn sessions but this one has always stood out to me.
I met up with Heather and Mike for their maternity shoot at Irvine Regional Park. I learned of their incredible journey over the last few years as they persevered to get to where they were that day. Science is amazing. I learned that their two little miracles were once outside in the world and they got to see the tiny embryos before receiving in-vitro fertilization. Wow! How amazing is that!?! They even had pictures of them as embryos. Mind. Blown! We had a wonderful shoot.
They are here!
The twins are born healthy and happy at Loma Linda Children’s Hospital.
Fast forward a few short (but I am sure very long months to Heather haha!) and those two little embryos grew beautifully and perfectly in their mother’s womb and are now healthy, happy, and fairly large for twins! Last week, their little boy and sweet girl were born right on time, weighing in 6lbs 11.2oz and 7lbs 2.5oz. Both 19 inches long. What blessings! Here is my favorite picture of them as embryos framed above them and now as a beautiful babe’s in the world again!
Isn’t that precious? I just can’t get over how amazing and miraculous their journey has been…to TWINS! I look forward to watching them grow up.
Each journey is a unique and wonderful gift. I’d love to tell your story in photographs for you to cherish forever. Let’s capture this special time. Contact me here.
