it’s here! | dfw birth photographer

Nothing I could say could quite compare to the email I received this morning. So, I’ll let Callie speak for me.

“I have already lost count of how many times I have watched the slide show and looked through the digital files. I want to say thank you, but I that seems so small compared to how truly grateful I am to have these images. The past four weeks have been so enormously emotional and uniquely sentimental for me. Everyday I am amazed by my capacity to love both my amazing husband and our sweet baby boy. In that first moment when I saw him I was completely overwhelmed by the fact that he was mine and that he was created out of this amazing love I have for Matt. Although I am sure I will never forget that incredible rush of emotion, I now have this beautiful and emotionally raw slide show to accompany it. For that we will be forever grateful. My hope is that others will see the beauty I feel when I look at these images and that they will want you to capture those fleeting moments for their family. You have an unbelievable gift and I feel blessed that our family has been a small part of your journey.”

You have the green light to use any of the images. I know a few have a lot of behind and leg action, but it is what it is…
Your super fans,
Callie, Matt and Ghirin

I’ll be posting a few of my favorites later, but for now, I want to share one of the greatest experiences of my life with you as a whole. Enjoy!

(make sure your volume is turned up to fully experience it!)
