After falling in love, getting married and finding out your expecting your first child, especially after feeling such a great desire sometimes to have a baby, you find yourself realizing how in love you already are with this new little person growing inside of you. After all of this it’s so hard to imagine how you could love another little addition as much as you love the first. Yet somehow, room in your heart is going to be made, you know that.
This woman. This friend of mine who I met so so long ago through another friend, her and I became close friends through our love for photography and art. I have done photos for her, she has second shot with me, we have chatted on deep levels during our lunch hours when we worked outside of our homes. I’ll never forget the lunch hour we shared at Tom’s Steakhouse here in our small town of Lac La Biche, when she told me that she was expecting her first. The emotion, the joy, excitement and even unbelief at how she came to know she was expecting was overwhelming! She had been praying for this little miracle for so long and it was finally a reality.
With the news of this pregnancy I relived those feelings of joy for her. Because of the miracle of her little boy, I knew she must wonder how she could love another just as much. I remember wondering that when I was pregnant for my second. I love how the room in your heart is expanded to love so so much more. Love is something that keeps growing, expanding and teaching.
I am so looking forward to all the more love I will be blessed to capture this year. In case you don’t follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I am offering Newborn Sessions for up to 3 deserving families as a gift, they just need to be nominated with a few beautiful words about them! Head over to bless someone who wouldn’t otherwise have newborn photos done!
Oh, and isn’t it nice to feel the warmth of summer through this post! Next weeks post will be their newborn session!
