Newborn Hospital Memories

So glad we had these done. Ever so thankful for our photographer who was spectacular. Simply amazed by the emotion she so candidly captured. These are moments I dreamed of this entire pregnancy. These are the moments I grieved never having with Nolan. 20-30-40 years from now, we will be able to look back on the photos and it will take us right back to the disbelief & pure happiness we felt at the time.131846_478941494893_88829519893_5516686_7428472_o

Thank you Maria, you gave us something that is more important to me in this world more than anything, memories.

I never ever want to forget this weekend, ever. It was filled with emotion and beauty.
