If this session doesn’t make you long for photos with you and your baby, I don’t know what else will!
Cedar Falls Motherhood Photographer
I first met Morgan via Instagram through our mutual friend, Dr. Sara Cahill. You see, besides being female business women, we all had something else in common – our love for doodles. I had seen photos of Morgan with her Aussie Doodle and struck up a conversation with her. From there, I learned that her husband is serving our country abroad on a deployment and took a moment to share with her how grateful I was for her sacrifice and his service.
In case you didn’t know, in my early career, I worked as an engineer on military jets and helicopters. We lived near an Air Force base, and several of our closest friend were pilots and pilot wives. In doing life with them daily, we saw first hand the tremendous sacrifice families make for our country when their loved ones deploy.
It wasn’t long before Morgan asked me if I would consider doing their homecoming photos when her husband Brady returned from his deployment. I had done this for a couple families in North Carolina and was excited to have the opportunity to do so for Morgan.
But her story is unlike others. You see, Morgan and Brady have a son named Barrett. However, Barrett has only met his daddy via Facetime. On the same day that Morgan and Brady found out they were expecting their first child, they also found out that Brady would deploy before the baby’s birth.
This homecoming will be a homecoming like no other. This homecoming is about a daddy meeting his baby boy for the first time. This homecoming is about a family of 3 finally becoming 3.
Until then, Morgan expressed an interest in a session for her and her son Barrett. Here are their beautiful portraits from our private field in Cedar Falls.
