Sunshine at the Beach

I'm so incredibly grateful for photography.

As time goes by (so quickly) we watch our tiny human grow and become more like a child each day. I'm reminded of the gift that photographs gives me. The ability to freeze time and remember those tiny toes, fingers and baby face forever. Giving birth to two beautiful baby girls and getting photos of those moments has been so precious and valuable to me. Even more so for Haven's birth. As It's helped me grieve and process though this difficult time.

I finally ordered some photos lastnight to have up in our home. Haven will always be our baby girl. We miss her everyday and can't imagine life without her, it's still hard and I find myself being overwhelmed by the waves of grief. But we're hopeful.

Hope is what carrys us though this difficult and painful time.

I am for sure a changed women, in many different facets of my life. Our loss and deepest pain won't break us down but we'll let it shape us and grow us to become more empathetic and compassionate humans. To see people and their grief and never think, "Shouldn't they be over this by now, it's be X amount of time." But to understand that everyone processes differently. I have more grace and love in my heart then ever before because of Haven. 

And again, having photographs of our little family is such a blessing and I'm so thankful for the gift of photography. I'm reminded of why I love it so much and am also hoping to jump back into photography soon.

With all that said, here's some frames from our trip to the beach in February. Enjoy xo
