I’ve been away from the online world for the last several days and probably won’t post as regularly this week. Last month I posted about the non-profit Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, a organization that connects photographers to families facing the loss of an infant. In that post, I briefly mentioned that I was preparing for the birth of my dear friends’ son.
On Wednesday morning I stood in the delivery room as they welcomed their new son into the world. For three days they invited me in to capture his sweet life. He was perfect, but his little heart just wasn’t built for this world. I stood at my friend’s bedside as her precious boy left her arms for Heaven. All he ever knew was love. Every mom loves to show off her baby and with her permission I am getting to give you a glimpse at his handsome face. His story is still being written and one day I hope to get to share it with you.
I will never be able to put into words the depth of the beauty and pain of those 56 hours. My heart is broken. This week I’ll be with friends and family honoring and celebrating the life of a boy who forever changed mine.
Heaven can’t come soon enough.
