I finished these photos weeks ago. They have been sitting here in a draft version of this post ever since, and I have come back to this post over and over without actually submitting it. Why?
Because I have no idea how to put into words just how much of a blessing it was for me to be able to take these photos.
If you know Shana and Jason’s story, you know why being able to take their maternity photos was something that I never expected to do. Adoption photos? Yes. But maternity photos? Nope.
And so, every single time I have tried to put into words just how much joy I felt during every single second of this session, my eyes have welled up with tears and words have failed me.
I still don’t have the words. I still don’t know how to say just how happy I am that Shana and Jason will soon meet the little boy they have prayed for. I still don’t know how to say just how much love my little family has for this little family. And I still don’t know how to say just how lucky I feel that God caused my path to intersect with Shana’s.
All I can say is that my life is better because Shana and Jason are part of it, and Otis will be one of the most loved little boys in this entire world.
We can’t wait to meet you Otis. Your mommy and daddy have been waiting for your arrival for years. ❤
