I thought I was going to be spending my day cleaning and organizing my basement. Instead, I got a call from Heather and spent the afternoon at Sacred Heart with twin boys. They were so tiny and perfect, born at 21 weeks. They were strong and lived 1 1/2 hours.
My heart breaks for the parents, especially the fathers. They don't get the bonding like the mothers do, until the baby is born. Such a sweet family.
I wish I could at least show you a picture of their tiny feet, but they aren't my pictures. so to give you an idea of size, the babies weighed aprox. 1 lb each and the longer one was 11 1/2 inches.
I feel blessed to be doing photography for these families. It has really been healing for me. I have always wanted to work with babies, I never thought it would be like this. I know things such as these happen for a reason, I would have never had the opportunity to do what I am doing now if it hadn't been for Olivia. I feel that not only did her life have a purpose, but it gave me one too. Photography has always been a hobby of mine, I never really wanted to make a career out of it, so why not use it for a greater purpose.
