Worth the wait

Every baby that comes through the front door of my studio has a story even though they are very new residents of this great big world.

This past week I had the pleasure of photographing Little Miss Journey. Her name is significant because Journey’s parents, Travis and Jenny, along with her big sister, Bailey, journeyed all the way from Colorado to Dallas to meet their newest addition to the family.

The wait is finally over.

Adoption can be a heart-wrenching process. With three failed adoption placements in the past year, this little family is feeling blessed to get to bring home their new baby girl. Their heartache makes their Journey that much more special to them. If you would like to know more about their adoption journey, you can read about their story in their blog at I loved how they put their faith in God and trusted him to bring them the baby that they were supposed to have.

Big sister Bailey is 4 1/2 and don’t forget the 1/2. LOL! She was so happy that her wait for a new sister was finally over. Bailey had the most beautiful smile as we took her first pictures with Journey. Talking about photogenic and fun. I have a feeling these two girls have many adventures waiting for them.

I’m feeling pretty special that Travis and Jenny would allow me the honor of capturing Journey’s newborn pictures. Journey was the perfect little model although she didn’t want to miss a thing.
I finally convinced her that she needed to rest her little eyes for the camera.

I hope you enjoy Journey’s pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. Isn’t she the most beautiful baby girl? I’m so looking forward to photographing these two girls as they grow up. I have a sinking suspicion that they are going to make history together. Welcome to the world, Miss Journey. God handpicked you specifically for this precious family and you were definitely worth the wait.
