Fresh 48: Verity Leigh
I remember getting the text on a Saturday morning while I was helping my husband hook up our new washer and dryer. "She's here!" Suddenly, my whole day shifted. I was bubbling with excitement for this sweet couple and their brand new baby. I could no longer focus on the tasks at hand, but instead wished away the hours until I could get to meet this sweet girl. Miss Verity was the sweetest little model for our session. She was contented to be passed around from grandparents, friends, to Mom and Dad. We even got to see a bit of those bright eyes right before I walked out the door. I love that God starts people this way. Isn't He good?
"And she said, “Oh, my lord! As you live, my lord, I am the woman who was standing here in your presence, praying to the Lord. For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that I made to him." 1 Samuel 1:26-27
I love Fresh 48 sessions. There is nothing, n-o-t-h-i-n-g, that captures such raw emotion like a family and a fresh new life. Mom and Dad are always in the hazy-over-the-moon-and-completely-overwhelmed-but-so-so-so-in-love stage that just makes my heart smile. I love new baby skin and hair and their teeny fresh-from-the-womb details. I love hearing birth stories. I feel privileged to be allowed access into the sacred bubble of a newborn's hospital room. If you'd like to book one of your own, let's chat.
