Remembering Baby

I have some of the greatest friends in the world :-) I went to get the mail today and there was a package from a friend of mine in Arizona. She had taken up donations from amongst my other friends from all over the country to send me, amongst other things, a bracelet commemorating the baby that we lost. The pictures truly don't do justice to how beautiful this bracelet is :-)

This charm has a rose on one side, and the word LIFE on the other, along with an amethyst colored crystal, symbolizing the month during which my child's life began...

This charm is a butterfly, with an aquamarine colored crystal, symbolizing the month that our baby passed away, and was able to fly away like a carefree, beautiful butterfly

And this charm simply says Wish, and has a topaz colored crystal, symbolizing the month that we had wished and hoped to hold our baby in our arms

And this charm has two little baby feet in a heart, symbolizing how my baby will always be in my heart... There is also a single teardrop, representing the millions of tears we have shed over the loss of our child.

And this charm symbolizes pregnancy and fertility, and has a moonstone (traditionally associated with promoting love and fertility), for when we are ready to try again.

How do you get him to sit still?

That's what everyone keeps asking me. "How do you get him to sit still for pictures?" lol The secret is, I stuck him in a tree! He simply couldn't get up and move! lol!

James at the park

I haven't updated in a while. This was actually a couple of weeks ago lol We went to our local park, which a few weeks earlier had flooded. Well, when the river flooded the park, it deposited a lot of sand, so it's like having a giant sandbox or going to the beach! It was so much fun :)

How do you photograph a broken heart?

Or shattered dreams?

I posted a couple weeks ago that we were pregnant. Some dreams end too soon as many of you know, and our baby has died. There are no words to express the depth of the love we already had for this child. He or she was very dearly wanted and will be even more dearly missed. I just wanted to let everyone know. If I think of a way to represent our loss through photography, I'll post it here.

God bless,

Fly Me To The Moon

Times like these make me want to run out and get a super long lens lol! I love love love looking at moon shots, but the longest lens I have is a 200, so I can't get the close, crisp shots everyone esle does. But these I don't think are too bad for a first attempt!! There was a total lunar eclipse last night, and while I missed the moon going into eclipse and in total eclipse (the moon was too low on the horizon -- yet another reason to move to London haha), I was able to capture a couple that showed the eclipse :-D
