Today’s extra special…

because you turn one…

and the best thing of all is…

you life’s just begun!

 

I was so very excited to see the girls back in the studio today…some of you may remember I first photographed them when they broke out of the NICU almost a year ago after a long rough ride for the girls and their sweet Mumma. Their story below was absolutely heartbreaking but these rainbows not only survived but thrived and here they are one year down the track!

Dhani always knew she wanted to be a mumma but her journey has seen her fight just to realize that dream. In 2000, Dhani gave birth to her darling daughter Karley, and despite the struggles, the duo were ready to conquer the world together! But the universe had other plans & in 2008 Dhani met Ted and life was happy & full. They married in 2010 and it was everything. Dhani & Ted knew they wanted their family to grow but through IVF, struggles & loss, their dreams seemed so far away. Then in the most unimaginable tragedy, Ted & Karley were tragically killed in a car accident in 2013. Broken & lost, Dhani knew her story didn’t end there, she fought against all odds. Thankfully, not one but two teeny tiny miracles occurred when Dhani fell pregnant with twins! Light in the darkness, hope when all hope was lost. But this too, like the rest of her story was rocky & the girls, affectionately known as Snuggle Pot & Cuddle Pie for the first month of their lives, entered the world at just 28 weeks weighing just a kilo each….and the roller coaster began again. These little warriors were meant to be here though, sent from heaven by their papa. Against all odds & after 80 long & bumpy days, the girls were finally well enough to come home!

So today…we celebrated all that they have overcome in the past year…looking back at how much they have grown and seeing their adorable little personalities! I just adore these milestone sessions as we can see the transition from teeny tiny newborn to gorgeous big girls! Lets take a look back and then a look forward…

Thank you girls for coming all the way back to the studio to celebrate this last one-derful year…it’s been an absolute treat to watch you grow from teeny tiny miracles to the

gorgeous big girls that you are today.

And as a special treat we did a little cake smash…not something usual for Amanda Maree Photography but for these girls who have come through so much…the mess and tears were worth it!
