Jace and Eva's Maternity

 
 "For this child I have prayed..."

The opportunity to bring a life into this world is one that many people hope for at some point in their life. It's one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have in life. Sadly, the road to this moment isn't always rainbows and butterflies. There are many people who hit every bump in the road and every storm along the way fighting to have a baby of their very own someday. Jace and Eva weathered those storms and came across several bumps in the road over the course of the past two years.

All of the doctors appointments, invasive and unpleasant procedures, hopes being built up and then crushed with each negative test made them start to think that this may never happen for them. They continued to pray unceasingly, as did many who know and love them, remaining strong in their faith through it all! Trusting that God had the perfect plan for them, and held onto His promise that He works everything out for the good of His children! Then one day, they finally saw it! Those two little pink lines appeared on that pregnancy test letting them know they have a little one growing in Eva's tummy! They were beyond excited, and so was big brother! (the family dog)

Those dreaded doctors appointments have turned into appointments they look forward to, and long for so that they can catch glimpses of their little one's face and hear that strong heartbeat! Their sweet little Charley Jean is growing big and strong every day, as is the anticipation to meet her and see her precious little face for the first time!! These stories don't always have happy results. As someone who also struggled through my own infertility storm, I could definitely relate to this inspiring couple, even though every one's journey is different. Sometimes those procedures are in vain, and sometimes the story takes a different turn. This story, however, worked out the way that they had hoped and prayed it would! A story of struggle turned into a story of joy, and just in time for Christmas!

I'm so excited for this beautiful couple, and honored to be the one to help them tell and share their story through photographs! Only a few short weeks, and they'll be holding little Charley in their arms and working so hard to memorize every little detail of her sweet face and itty bitty fingers and toes! What a beautiful day that is going to be:)!!

Our session together was perfect from start to finish. From the beautiful sunshine, to the amazing and loving couple, and wrapped up with an incredible sunset! I am so looking forward to our next session together when I get to photograph these two lovebirds holding their daughter!! We will see you on your birthday, Baby Charley!
