I have waited for you….like never before.
There is nothing more amazing than watching a family and their journey unfold and it is the biggest privilege to be a part of that story in some small way.
In 2010 I met the most gorgeous little man…and when I say little, I mean little. Spencer was born at just 26+4 weeks and weighing a mere 880grams. After an astounding 105 days in hospital with us we sent him on his way to grow and flourish.
Now you can imagine how excited I was when Spencers mumma got in touch to tell me they were expecting again. After such a traumatic time with Spencer, I must admit, I was holding my breath and sadly this new little life was not destined for earth. I can’t even begin to imagine the heartbreak of losing a bubba and all the hopes and dreams you had for the pregnancy and for that little life and its future. Again….a sweet babe came to be…and again this little love was also not destined for earth. For five years Spencers mumma and papa dreamed of adding to their family and then in 2015 their hopes were answered. After a complicated pregnancy the most divine little being arrived earthside at 37+3 weeks!
A sweet rainbow after the ravage of the storm….Rocco.
Today, Spencer brought his mumma and papa…and most importantly his gorgeous new brother Rocco to spend time with me in the studio and together we had the best day! Rocco was a dream and it was so nice to see everyone again, especially Spencer who is doing amazingly considering his rough start.
How sweet is this little bunny Rocco brought with him?
Gaaaah….that smile…does it get any sweeter?
I always ask families if they have anything special they want to bring to include in their session and I may have squealed a little when Rocco’s mumma said she was bringing this wooden crate!
And as soon as I saw this cute little froggy friend…I knew he would fit perfectly with this vintage dolls bed…sigh..this has to be my favourite from today.
Oh hi there gorgeous boy…..
And one last one for this sneak peak.
Rocco thank you for being so lovely and for all the hard work you did to heal your families broken hearts. You were definitely worth the wait.
Yamini and Ant…I feel so blessed to have watch you grow these past 6 years as a family and I am so glad you chose me to capture special memories for you today.
Spencer…I am so proud of the gorgeous big boy you have become and you are the best big brother that a little bubba could ask for. Rocco is one lucky little man!
