Bridget. Oh, sweet little miss Bridget.
At this point with my business, I only photograph newborn sessions at my studio in midtown Tallahassee. However, when I got the call that my cousin Brian and his wife Carmen had finally been matched with a baby, I may have cried and immediately starting packing.
Brian and Carmen have been going through the heartbreaking process of infertility, foster care, and failed adoptions over the past several years. They have been SO ready, SO READY for a child of their own. Whenever our families are together, Carmen is always holding and playing with the kids that are present.
One morning in March, Brian and Carmen got an email around lunchtime telling them that they had been chosen by birth parents to be the parents of a little girl! They immediately packed up and headed from Atlanta down to Tampa to pick up their baby girl, Bridget.
Bridget is SO perfect. I can’t believe that there is FINALLY a girl on the Galloway side! My grandparents would have been so happy! I got to meet her at 12 days old. She is the most alert newborn that I have ever encountered! She did not want to miss a second of what was going on around her! She would catnap for a few minutes at a time during her newborn session but would give us the sweetest smiles when she did sleep! LOOK at her eyelashes! I can’t believe how long they are!
