Wow! February is about half over……time really does fly when you are having fun! It was an awesome year last year and was honored to photograph each and every family that chose to have me capture a special moment in their lives.
I really would like to try to blog a little more but I have never felt like much of a writer. I can chat your ear off if you let me…..but writing it out- not really my forte! With that being said, I am going to try stepping out of my comfort zone a little more this year, and I am starting with this featured blog post of this adorable family!
Mom contacted me when she was about 30 weeks pregnant and I was able to get a maternity session scheduled about a month later. We had beautiful fall weather and a great time capturing mom and dad before adding to their family.
Parker arrived a few days early and mom let me know so we could get his first photo session scheduled. I have parents fill out a newborn questionnaire prior to the session so I can customize exactly what I bring to what they prefer. Mom mentioned neutrals and navy blue and pretty much left everything else up to me! Parker was a great sleeper thanks to the new parents keeping him awake before our session. Welcome to the world Parker and congrats to the new parents!
“Angela Breckenridge Photography captures the most beautiful images. It was easy to contact and schedule sessions. The photos came out better than I could have requested. Angela was very flexible with scheduling and open to incorporating any specific requests. She made us feel comfortable during the sessions and she is very punctual and professional. I highly recommend Angela!” -Amanda D
I shared a little of this family on my Facebook page last week, but in honor of October being Childhood Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to share a little more about the beautiful Olivia. When I first heard from Olivia’s mom, she informed me that Olivia was an almost 3 year cancer survivor and that they were in need of updated family pictures. I was absolutely honored to be able to capture this amazingly strong family!
Olivia’s mom shared a little of her story with me to share with you:
When Olivia was 19 months old she was diagnosed with Leukemia. The onset of her disease was sudden and shocking. In the weeks following, we would learn that her variety of this most common form of childhood cancer was extremely aggressive. The cancer was not responding to treatment in the way that her doctors had hoped it would and the odds began to slip out of her favor. We were told that she would require a bone marrow transplant to have any hope of survival. Those were dark and terrifying days. Soon though, we would learn that a bone marrow match had been found and that this anonymous donor was able and willing to donate his time and his stem cells to save our little girl. We were filled with so much hope. Five days after her second birthday, Olivia received the gift of life. Now, almost three years later, she is still in remission and is living a very full and happy life. She will turn five in December and started pre-k this year. We are thankful beyond measure for each and every day with our precious daughter and to the young man (our hero) who helped to save her life.
Thank you for helping us to document this special time in our lives with beautiful images. We will cherish them always.
I feel like EVERY.SINGLE.SESSION I do is special, but what an amazing story to share! I know Olivia and her family will shine bright with so much love as they continue to grow! Read more of Olivia’s story HERE.
