Meeting this momma was a long time coming. 

Martha and I met years ago on Instagram. She had just gone through her 3rd (of what would be 5) miscarriage. I couldn't get her out of my head. Her entire infertility process has been something she used to make her stronger. She fought for the, now 2, beautiful children she has all the while raising money for others who also dealt with infertility. It was an amazing process to watch. 

We had never met in real life until little Leo made his presence. It was honestly one of the most incredible things to see this family of 3 so seamlessly become a family of 4. It was truly meant to be. 

This is why I love what I do. Birth stories and fresh 48 sessions are my favorite. I feel like there isn't a moment in time that is filled with more love than holding that new baby, no matter how they came to you, and realizing that they are yours and you are theirs forevermore. 


She's starting preschool this fall and it's the first time I won't be able to document a major life moment for her. I was with her in the hospital, I was with her when her Aunt got married and she gained a new uncle. I was there when she turned 1 and I was there when she went on her first trip abroad. It kind of breaks my heart that I'm missing this one.
