This was probably one of the most special newborn sessions I have done to date. This sweet little girl is loved so much, not only by her family but also by a tight-knit photography community and others all around Hampton Roads.
... I'm not even sure where to begin with this story, so I guess the very beginning is a good place, huh?
I first met Brannan at a newborn workshop in the Fall of 2013. We immediately hit it off and I remember during introductions, she mentioned her love for newborns and that "maybe one day" she'll have her own. At the time, I didn't quite know everything behind that statement but as our friendship grew, I got to know more of Brannan's story. A few years later, Brannan and her husband, John, decided to try IVF in order for their dream to come true; they chose to share their story in hopes to help fund the expensive procedure. Immediately, the immense love and support from the community for these two started pouring in.
John and Brannan waited almost ten years for this. I'm so honored to have been there to help capture some of Cecilia's first moments.
