Introducing Lyla Claire! This adorable angel came to me just 8 days after she was born at Paoli Hospital, and I loved having her and her parents in the studio.
I always love when both parents come to a session so they can be part of documenting this amazing time. And I especially love when they’re so comfortable that they can catch a nap, like Dad did during the session!
Every baby is special, but I was especially touched by Lyla’s story. Her parents had suffered a miscarriage before Lyla was born, so to welcome this little girl into their family after that loss was nothing short of a miracle for them.
Here is Mom’s story:
We found out about our first pregnancy in October of 2016, two weeks before I was to fly to China to do missions work at an orphanage. I briefly considered not going but felt God still wanted me to go, and I’m so glad I did. Meeting those children and being able to advocate for their adoption when I got back home was one of the best experiences of my life, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
When I got back to the states a few weeks later, however, I found out that I had miscarried. We were absolutely devastated, and I struggled with guilt over my decision to travel to overseas. My doctor assured us it was not anything I did, and it shouldn’t impact my chances of having a successful pregnancy in the future. She told us to wait a while before trying again, but God had other plans, as we were shocked to find out we were pregnant again by February 2017! My pregnancy with Lyla went super smoothly, and we are so blessed to have her in our lives!
