I feel like this post needs a bit of a back story to be complete. Melissa and Ryan came into my life in 2011. From the first time I met them I felt like I had known them forever…we instantly clicked. The day I got to spend with them, their family and friends documenting the beginning of their lives together was a complete honor. Melissa and Ryan are completely perfect together and in their short 2+ years of being married they have encountered so much joy and sorrow. In 2012 Melissa and Ryan welcomed a baby girl, Molly, who was born at 25 weeks gestation. I followed Molly’s journey until the very end and the faith that Melissa and Ryan showed throughout her short life was completely inspiring.
Melissa and Ryan recently welcomed sweet baby Henry into their family and I’m (once again) completely honored to have been invited into their home to photograph him. Molly and Henry already share so much together and I’m glad we were able to include so many of her mementos into Henry’s session. Henry is loved beyond words and it was such an incredible experience to be able document the snuggles, laughter and joy.
