I had a pregnant Mumma book in a newborn session for her baby boy that was due in early January, and I was so excited to hear that he had arrived safely into his new family! However, excitement soon turned to worry when his Mumma contacted me to tell me her brand new miracle was gravely ill and that they had to stay in hospital for an undetermined amount of time.. I kept in contact with them checking in to see how their little bundle was going, and all though it was touch and go for a while, 4 weeks later he was given a clean bill of health and was finally allowed to leave hospital! YAY!!
We scheduled his session so we could include Mummy, Daddy and his handsome big brother to come down from Brisbane and create some wonderful memories together for them to keep and look back on. Not only were these photos important to capture his newborn features like most sessions, it was to rejoice and celebrate his arrival home finally to his loving family. A family that had spent such a long time in a hospital room with machines and monitors, now being able to spend time at home in a baby's room with a toys and love.
So Melissa and Lachlan, congratulations on your now healthy baby boy Elijah - he really is a little miracle. xx
