I met Kristin and Branden a few years ago through my husbands family. I felt so honored when they asked if I would photograph their baby girl. Little did I know how long of a journey they had been on to get here! Being able to be there with them just a day after Brenna was born I could see just all the emotions that they were going through. Excitement, love and relief. Seeing their beautiful baby girl healthy and here had to be one of the most amazing feelings after the road they had been on. Kristin and Branden were kind enough to allow me to share their story and some photos of their sweet little Brenna.
"A year ago we were beginning an unknown chapter in our infertility journey when we began injections for IVF. We were lucky enough to have a great support system to help us & give us grace with the hectic schedule & hormones that the IVF process entails. We counted our blessings when we learned that we had beat infertility and were finally pregnant. We grew together as a team as our pregnancy got complicated almost immediately with vanishing twin syndrome, hospital visits, bedrest for 13 weeks, then high blood pressure & ultimately little girl flipping last minute. But we were given the best little miracle on January 22.
After battling infertility and finally getting ready to welcome our daughter we knew we’d like to remember the first moments we became parents with pictures as forever keepsakes. Everyone tells you how quickly time passes & how fast they grow and it is so true but something you can’t truly understand until you are in the thick of it. We are so grateful we did the fresh 48 session to have those pictures to look back on the first hours after we became parents which were such special moments for us. The pictures we have are truly priceless!"
