A few weeks ago, I made the comment here (Facebook) that I would LOVE to photograph twins……….almost instantly, a sweet momma who had just given birth to a beautiful set of boy/girl twins, contacted me. To say the least, I was super excited! I planned for 10 straight days, looking at their pictures and imagining them in all the little set-ups I had planned. Day and night, they consumed me, they became like my own little babies………. 2 days before our scheduled session, I received a text from their mom saying that they would be unable to make their session and thanked me for my time, but there had been a death in their family.
Minutes later, I was contacted by a very close friend of their family letting me know that baby girl Austyn had passed away. One day short of her 1 month birthday :(((
I can’t imagine the pain of losing a child, it’s just unimaginable. I do know that even though these babies were not my own, but they had consumed my life and grown their own little special place in my heart, as I make every session so personal.
A couple of days ago, mom brought baby boy Trent into my studio and let me just tell you, it took lots of prayers of strength (I had so many people praying for me) to get through and hold it together. I was most certainly being guided by a higher power to take these pictures, as I could not see a thing through the tears………..
Facebook, please show some love for the family and sweet baby Trent in this memorial picture with his twin sister.
