They are one of the most beautiful families with their dimples, bright smiles, and Mom as a beautiful Meg-Ryan-look-a-like! We captured a little bit of Gavin (who will be graduating this year from Shakopee High School), some family pics, and one of just Mom & Dad. I always try to sneak in at least one of just Mom & Dad because its beautiful to see where all of this love started!
These two high school sweethearts will marry New Years Eve this year… Can’t wait to capture their continuing love story!
I thought by taking the day yesterday to think about what I wanted to write would help but I am still at a loss for words on how incredible this experience was…
Maisy’s aunt Shelbey (Keighla’s sister) carried her, loved her, nourished her and brought her into this world so unselfishly so Keighla and Paul could have the child they had waited so long for. Maisy couldn’t be more adored and loved by her Mommy and Daddy and the emotions from the birth show this through and through. As I was documenting this story (which was an honor beyond words ever express), I literally bawled behind my camera. I wish I had more words, but there is just SO much emotion & beautiful moments wrapped up into this birth that I just can’t find the words… Maybe someday I’ll rewrite this post, but for now, I’m going to let these images tell their story.
And yes… there is a medication (& a process) that Keighla took to help her own body produce breast milk, so she is able to feed her little girl. What a beautiful thing! <3
