October – Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month | Houston Newborn Photographer

While we’re busy trying to get our family photos and holiday cards done, let’s not forget that October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month.

I had one in 2014 right before Christmas. And that totally changed my life.

 

I was a workaholic mom before my miscarriage. I struggled to balance family and work. I was sleep deprived all the time, and barely had time to take care of myself…

I knew I needed a change. A drastic change.

 

I was blessed with another pregnancy three months after my loss. I prayed about the change God had planned for my life.

I had a strong desire to stay at home. But I wasn’t sure how that would all work out.

After months of prayers, I was clear that I needed to work less and give more time to my family… and to myself.

In 2015, I started my photography business, a dream hidden in my heart for many years.

I never knew that I would be so passionate about it. Now it just becomes part of my life.

I love capturing the abundant joy and pure beauty of new life.

I love how families come and spend time together hugging each other during the session.

Most of all, the friendship built with my clients has made my life so full.

No one would have thought that my loss would become a blessing for others.

 

I’m never regretful of my choice.

I’m even thankful for my loss.

My precious one is now 21 months old and my older one just turned six. I’m thankful for them every single day.

 

I wouldn’t be brave enough to make that decision in my life if I had never lost a pregnancy.
