Three weeks ago I was worried that Reagan wouldn't make it to today. Thank you God, for not just another day with Reagan, but the twenty eight days since Reagan's diagnoses. In my search online for support with Trisomy 18, I found out about a great program called, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. http://www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org
I contacted one of their photographers, Oana Hogrefe, to set up a maternity photo shoot. I spent the last week praying for good weather. God answered my prayer. It was sunny and beautiful. Our good friend, David, let us use his backyard. He has spent several years building waterfalls, and gardens, it's a true escape.
We just had a fabulous time being photographed. I truly enjoyed being able to capture this time in our lives, now 6 months pregnant. Besides what other time can a girl get her picture taken without her sucking in her tummy.
Oana is so very talented, always checking for the best lighting and best place for her to take the shot. Very creative too! Check out her work and you will see what I mean, http://www.shutterview.com
Thanks Oana for making today such a great memory. We are blessed to know you.
