her aura*

schmoopy, canon digital rebel xti

I had a few magical photo sessions with my friend Stacie yesterday and today. I am moved to tears when I observe her appreciating and soaking in every moment of this new journey. I was even more moved to tears capturing it with my lens. I feel so honored to have walked this fertility journey with her and to witness this miracle makes me speechless. She has such a peaceful aura surrounding her and her babe.

I am hoping this portrait will express it better than words.

I think that is a really beautiful thing that even in the midst of your struggle with having a child that you can yet be so happy for another who is expecting. I don't know if i could be there and I really wish I could. I tend to stay in the uglier side of my feelings sometimes and not enough time in the expansive, freeing end of them. I think that says a lot about your heart and strength.
