Baby Brynlee | Richmond VA Newborn Glen Allen Baby Photographer
Every life is truly a miracle and the most precious gift on earth. Brynlee is even more of a special little miracle because she gave her parents quite a scare during her mama's pregnancy. At 23 weeks Laura had to have an emergency rescue cerclage, a procedure in which stitches are used to close the cervix during pregnancy to help prevent pregnancy loss or premature birth, and went into premature labor twice. Laura wrote, "My heart was broken, given the thought that she may not survive! Every week I said being pregnant is a true miracle". There is enough fear and anxiety during pregnancy and any complications can sometimes be too much to bear, but Laura and Baby Brynlee were strong and on September 16, 2015 at 8:35am weighing in at 6lbs 12oz at 40.1 weeks Brynlee made her grand entrance into the world!
I met Laura while looking for an assistant to help me during my fall mini-sessions. An aspiring photographer herself she inquired about the position. We planned to meet and she had told me she just had a baby. I mean literally just had a baby that week and it just so happened that I was in need of a newborn model for some new tiebacks and my new vintage sewing box that I couldn't wait to use as a prop. So our meeting turned into a mini photo shoot and I instantly loved Laura and Brynlee! Just 3 weeks after giving birth Laura did assist me during my 11 mini-sessions that were all packed into one day ( I told you she was strong). Laura wrote in my "Book of Life" the following about her experience:
"Her birth was very peaceful and amazing despite the pain! I just looked at her and cried, overwhelmed with joy to finally hold my precious gift"
Welcome to the world Brynlee! May your life be filled with much love and happiness!
My vintage sewing basket that I found at an antique market on my way to GA. I LOVE It!
Look at that face!! If we only knew what she was thinking!
