God knew my heart needed you.

After loss, and then the rainbow blessings of two sweet little boys, followed by more heartache and broken dreams, this little gift arrived. Perfectly packaged with soft auburn hair, curious and alert newborn-blue eyes, complete adoration for her loving mama and a little finger she has her daddy wrapped tightly around. This sweet baby is indeed heaven-sent, bringing with her healing and hope. Daddy, Mama, and a pair of big brothers had all their dreams come true; finally, their little girl to love, cherish, spoil and protect for the rest of their lives. They could not be happier.

The 48 hours immediately following birth are a complicated medley of magic and infatuation, somewhat miserably coupled with pain and physical discomfort. There is so, so much to take in, so much to recover from, and there's this brand new little person in your family that you are head over heels for who comes with her own set of opinions, needs, and you just can't get enough of her. There's so much newness, so much to learn about each other, the very thought of missing any little detail makes your hormonal heart fall apart. That is why I love the idea of a fresh-48 session. These are the pictures that bring it all back. Your memories of those fleeting days when your child first entered your world are important to hold onto. Get pictures during those first days. You will cherish them.
