Maternity Photographer in Castle Rock, CO

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Time to take a peek at my shoot with Nick and Nicole.  We met last week amidst the threat of rain but the Colorado skies were kind to us, just a few minutes of waiting in the car and we were good to go.  Which by the way I was very grateful for because they drove all the way from Arvada!!
These two have quite a story, in fact, Nicole first contacted me from the hospital.  We weren't entirely sure if this maternity session would happen in the hospital or in the great outdoors. 
 Nicole suffers from chronic pancreatitis, over the years she has had some surgeries that have left some scar tissue.  As her baby grew this scar tissue started to cause some very serious issues.   
 Intestines started to twist and turn, obstructions resulted and Nicole found herself in the hospital in a very serious situation. Her anatomy was going to need some rewiring, ASAP.  The sick bowel would need to be removed and her pancreas would need a new place to empty and all this reconstruction would have to happen with a little baby tuck inside.  
 Nicole was sedated for pain while Nick dealt with questions like "If we can only save one, which one  should we save?" Can you even imagine?
Nicole and the baby were given a measly 50% survival chance. 
 Praise God, they both made it through the surgery and hopefully Nicole will be able to make it to the 40 week mark with no more hospital stays. 
 The white bandage on her arm is covering a central line, she is unable to eat anything via the mouth at this time, so she is getting all of her nutrients through this central IV.  
 This wasn't the journey they expected but it is the road that is leading them to becoming a family of three and they wanted to document it all. 
 In August, they will welcome a baby girl!! And they will have reached the end of this portion of their life long journey as parents. 
 I wish these two former geologists turned, police officer and nurse many exciting and joy-filled days with their little girl.
 I had the chance to pray with these two at the end of their session and I would ask that we all continue to keep them in our prayers until their baby girl arrives!
 Nick and Nicole, what a pleasure it was to meet you.  I was honored to listen to your story and to capture just a glimpse of it on film.  Looking forward to our next shoot in August!!
