Whimsical Maternity in Red Rock

Officially now a Nevada maternity photographer (my first shoot in this amazing state), but before I begin writing about our really rad Red Rock trip, I wanted to tell the amazing story of this sweet family. They have waited so long and endured such tremendous battles to have a baby. A little from the mama to be, Ashley:

Being parents was something we prayed years for. We both knew God had a purpose and a plan, but after enduring infertility and several painful miscarriages, we weren’t sure how that prayer would be answered, if ever.

After 914 days of waiting and two failed IVF attempts, God had answered our prayers in His own perfect timing. Our son is due any day now and we just sit in complete astonishment of how the Lord has worked such a miracle in our lives. The Lord truly does make beautiful things out of dust! We can’t wait to finally hold our son in our arms and tell him just how much we love him. We are so thankful and grateful for God’s goodness and faithfulness.

Their story gives me chills. When Cristina and I were prepping hair and makeup, we had the honor of hearing Nathan and Ashley’s full story first hand. They tried so hard, did everything they could to get pregnant. How amazing is it, that they are a living example of what happens when we give our trust to God. He knew these two would be amazing parents, it was already in His plan. Sometimes we just have to let go and let God do His thing in our lives.

It is such a joy to not only capture a story of this beautiful time in Nathan and Ashley’s life, but to celebrate the miracle of their precious baby boy as they patiently await his arrival.
