There is so much emphasis put on the engagement ring when you are getting married...
I am taking a break from the normal blogging schedule today to share with you a little slice of my personal life. Since I had Dexter over a year ago I have found my whole focus in life has shifted. Dexter has become my world and Nik and I will move heaven and earth to make sure he is happy. As you also know photography is very important to me and I strongly believe that capturing moments with your family is as important as capturing your wedding day. I have already documented My new born shoot by S6 Photography and Dexter at 6 months here by Jess Petrie on the Blog. Today I’d like to share with you a family shoot we had with Jon at S6 Photography a couple of weeks ago.
This shoot is a little bitter-sweet for me now, I love looking at these images as they show my family unit and remind me how lucky I am. However when these photos were taken I was pregnant. Now I am not.
We unfortunately lost the baby this week, I was 9 weeks pregnant, no reason why it went wrong, it just wasn’t meant to be. I am a strong believer in fate, so I guess this just wasn’t the time for us. What the whole experience has done is remind me just how lucky I am. Only a few years ago I was told I would never have children. However, a few years on and Dexter was born, with the help of a truly amazing lady who donated her eggs and some very clever scientists. So, today I am grateful. Grateful that I have the love of my amazing husband, grateful for my gorgeous little boy Dexter, our miracle baby and, grateful for the wonderful friends and family I have around me.
So today go and give those you love a big hug and be grateful for having them in your life. Never take them for granted as you don’t know how long you have with them. I only had 9 weeks with my tiny baby, but I would rather have had those 9 weeks than none at all.
If you haven’t got any photos of your loved ones, get your camera out, book a photographer or take some selfies….what ever you do make sure you record those special moments, they are gone before you know it!
