I first met this beautiful family for their maternity portraits. Candace was glowing with their baby girl. I still remember their session like it was yesterday, so when I got news that Emmaline was born sleeping, my heart broke. Candace reached out to me after and told me she was so happy to have those maternity portraits and remember their baby girl in such a positive light. It was one of those messages that makes you sob and know that you’ve made an impact in their lives. Photographing their family again was a joy.. Candace had a baby teddy bear that was weighted to match their little girl’s birth weight. A framed photo of her was also brought. She’ll forever be remembered and I know that one day, they’ll all be reunited.
Candace recommended the following organizations to donate to or contact if you or someone you know is experiencing a still born birth or miscarriage:
