MY NAME IS RAYNA AND I’M IN LOVE WITH TRAVELING, MY SWEET HUSBAND, THREE CHILDREN AND TWO FUR BABIES, STRIPES, THE BEACH, LAUGHING, AND PHOTOGRAPHING EVERYTHING I CAN! PICTURES HAVE ALWAYS TAKEN ME TO THE HAPPIEST OF MOMENTS. THEY REMIND ME OF THE LITTLE DETAILS FROM MY WEDDING DAY, AMAZING FRIENDS I HAVE MADE IN THIS LIFE. PICURES HOLD THE MOMENTS OF WHEN MY CHILDREN WERE BORN. THEY HELP SHARE MEMORIES WITH DADDY WHEN HE IS DEPLOYED. PHOTOS ARE MY ANCHORS.
This was my first newborn session of 2016. I photographed her parents earlier in 2015 because they were going to try to adopt. They needed new photos to put into their package. This photo would help the birth mother decide who to gift her baby to. I received an email from baby A’s dad in December asking about my schedule for January. I easily gave him some details and had not heard back from him until roughly two weeks prior to this session . He quickly filled me in and said they were chosen by a birth mom and she just had her baby! We scheduled her session and got baby A in as soon as possible. This session was so heartwarming. This session secured my faith in God, and His plan for each of us. I was whispering to this sweet girl that she was the luckiest girl in the world because (most) anyone can have a baby, but she was chosen, hand picked by God and by secular powers to go to the family she is with now. Baby A, you are loved.
