Introducing Baby Gianna Starer! This cutie pie came to me for her newborn session just 10 days after she was born at Reading Hospital.
I was thrilled to hear that Mom was recommended to me by a friend of hers whose pictures I had done. It’s such a nice feeling to hear that not only is my work in baby photography appreciated, but that my clients trust me to be able to do the same for their friends. It is a trust I always strive to live up to.
Both Mom and Dad were over-the-moon excited to welcome little Gianna into the world after a long and emotional journey to becoming parents. So, listening to them gush about their little girl, it was so easy to get swept up in their joy:
Our long-awaited prayers have been answered with you, Gianna. You are everything we were hoping for and more. Our hearts are so full! Mommy and Daddy love you very much! There is nothing we wouldn’t do for you, and we promise to take care of you always.
I also love their story about how they picked out Gianna’s name:
Gianna is named after both her paternal and maternal grandmothers. Her paternal grandmother’s name is Anna Marie, and her maternal grandmother’s maiden name is Starer (the ‘er’ is silent). We also loved the meaning of Gianna, which is, “God is gracious”; extremely fitting, especially since God has truly blessed us with this child!
Even the way they talked about finding out the gender was filled with nothing less than ecstasy:
When Vince and I found out we were having a GIRL, we were beyond excited!!! A baby girl is exactly what we have been hoping and praying for! Gianna is our perfect little miracle, and our hearts are so full of love for our beautiful baby! Our family is now complete!
Michelle & Vince, thank you for bringing your beautiful miracle into my studio. I loved getting to be part of your joy!
