I photographed The R family back in May at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain- I remember it being a gorgeous day for a session! I met them through our mutual friend, Becky - who's wedding was the last blog post before this one. Brenda was one of Becky's gorgeous bridesmaids!
Brenda was (and remains, along with myself) in a support group for women in Massachusetts going through IVF and Becky introduced the two of us. She invited me into the private group and it has been such a source of strength, information, and sisterhood. I wouldn't have been able to get through IVF half as well as I did without Brenda and the other women she introduced me to in this wonderful group!
Within a few months of joining this group, Brenda got her BFP (big fat positive) with twins, Addison and Jacob. Her and Josh were SO excited to be welcoming their babies into the world. Tragically Jacob passed away in utero a couple months before they were due to be born. The strength that Brenda and Josh have showed through this unthinkable tragedy has been immeasurable. You'll see the beautiful necklace in the photos below that Brenda wears honoring Jacob.
Though missing their beloved Jacob, their daughter Addison is a gorgeous and wonderful girl. She is now a little over one year old and is one of the cutest little girls I've had the pleasure of photographing. Check out a few photos from their family session inside!Read More
