Fayette County Newborn Photographer

All newborns that I photograph are special to me.  Having parents trust me to create precious memories with their very new baby is such an honor and pleasure to me!  Sometimes nothing can prepare me for the emotions of newborn photography.  This session was one of those times.  In February of 2012 I met this couple and their precious son, Ethan for the first time in the NICU.  After struggles with infertility, they gave birth to twins, Alexis Paige and Ethan Wyatt.  Alexis went to be with Jesus soon after her birth.  Ethan was a fighter and tried to hang on but, at the age of just six weeks, it became clear that he needed to be with his sister.  I was privileged to be the photographer at his bedside just two days before.  There I photographed this beautiful boy and his adoring parents as they prepared for the difficult days ahead.  It is his tiny hand you see resting on that of his parents in the black and white photo in my newborn gallery.  I prayed for this family as they said goodbye to Ethan.  I prayed for them as they struggled to make their dream of a bringing home a healthy baby come true.  I rejoiced with them when I found out they were indeed expecting again and prayed all would be well.  It was with great anticipation that Alexis and Ethan’s little sister Ansley came into the world!  Healthy, beautiful and surrounded with love!

At just 5 days old she came to Legacy Portraits for her very first photo shoot.  She brought along two very special bears that were made from Ethan and Alexis’ blankets.  All newborns are special but, some will always hold a piece of my heart.  Ansley is one of those.  I’m excited to watch her grow!
