Lyla, Evie & Fam

Some of you may remember Miss Evie. She is an amazing little girl whose story has touched so many lives, and truly changed ours. It all started a couple years ago with a NILMDTS photo shoot that (you can check out our blog post on it here), then it turned into an amazing story of Faith and miracles (you can see more about that here!). Well – we couldn’t be any more excited to share that Evie just celebrated her 2nd birthday in September. Her family was so gracious to let me do a photo shoot for them. They are one of the most amazing and beautiful families that I have ever had the opportunity to be around. I adore this photo shoot for so many reasons and I hope these memories are something they can cherish forever. Happy Birthday Miss Evie – you have no idea the impact you have had on so many people.

A very happy NILMDTS story…

One of my past NILMDTS clients shared their story today on KETV.  We are so grateful that they agreed to do it and to help us spread the word about Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.  Check it out at http://www.ketv.com/video/22184097/index.html
 and to read more about their family and their story check out their blog at http://www.eviejayne.blogspot.com/.  Just make sure to keep a box of kleenex’s close by and prepare to have your Faith renewed!

Last week I got to do a really special maternity shoot.  There are 2 parts of this story that I want to share.

I met with Lindsey and her husband John and their 2 year old Lyla the other day for a maternity shoot.  Lindsey shows up and is absolutely gorgeous – and 30 weeks along!  We had such a great time on the shoot – they were wonderful – Lyla was wonderful and the shoot went perfectly.   Their faith is incredible and it just radiates from them. I felt so blessed to have met them.

The 2nd part of this story – why it was such an incredibly special shoot was because it was a NILMDTS shoot.  Lindsey had contacted me a few weeks ago because they had found out at 20 weeks that their baby had Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type 2.  Most likely they will lose their little girl minutes or hours after birth.  The time they have with Evie is now – while she is pregnant – it is the time they get to spend as a family and the time Lindsey gets to feel her move and carry her.  I felt like it was incredibly important that they had a photo shoot during this time.  We will also do another after Evie is born and Lindsey has been kind enough to let me share her story and her pictures with everyone.  I hope this gives you a little better glimpse as to what NILMDTS is – and how it can be so healing to so many families.
