Oh my gosh! This family & 1st birthday session is seriously the CUTEST ever. Seriously. EVER!
But really, I love capturing such special moments in people's lives, and there is so much that is special about this session. Keep reading, you'll see! It's even more meaningful when I get to do this for friends and family.
Danielle and Robb are the mother and father to the adorable boy you see in these pictures, Harrison. These two were introduced by Danielle's late friend back in 2010 and hit it off immediately. After patiently waiting about 2-1/2 years, Robb asked her to marry him. After getting married in fall of 2013, they decided they wanted to build a family together right away and started trying for a baby. In July of 2014, Danielle became pregnant, but after 9 weeks, had a miscarriage. It was such a horrible heartache. They continued to try and try and eventually she had to meet with an OB in 2016 to discuss what could be done. She began with ovulation tests for a few months and then had to setup an appointment to start on ovulation medication in June. As any family might get at this point, they were discouraged and had pretty much given up hope of becoming pregnant.
In May, she had this feeling and decided to take a test. That feeling was right, a positive test, she was PREGNANT! In January of 2017, these two welcomed their beautiful rainbow baby, Harrison James Bach.
In the later half of last year, they wanted to try for another baby, not knowing how long it would take to conceive again. Well, after a few months, they discovered baby number 2 is on the way!
I'm so extremely excited for my good friend, Danielle, and everything the future has in store for their wonderful family!! Now enjoy these pictures celebrating their family, Harrison's first birthday (cake smash), and a picture hinting at the arrival of baby number 2!
