Mayfield | Dallas, TX | Newborn Photographer

There are a few things I am passionate about. If you know me, you could probably name them, but as this blog is also for those that don't know me, here is my list: 

My Family. 
Labor of Hope. 

I met this sweet family through serving as the Director of Photography of a new non-profit, called Labor of Hope.  Kelly, along with Melissa and Kiesha, founded this organization in 2016. We provide holistic support services for families facing a difficult diagnosis for themselves or their babies while pregnant. Trisomies, CHD, other syndromes that are "not compatible with life" etc. Doulas, mentor couples, and photography are just some of the things we help with.

A year ago, Kelly gave birth to sweet Abel Paul, and their world changed.  A Trisomy 18 diagnosis and 15 days later, he went to be with Jesus. I knew of their story before I even met them. I had been praying for them for weeks, and a few short months later I found myself working alongside them as this new non-profit was born too. Their love for Jesus just radiates from both of them, as does their love for their son, and now their daughter too! 

Exactly one year, to the day, Abel's little sister, Mayfield was born 3 weeks early. She was determined to share a birthday with her brother!  Like Abel, she is precious. Fearfully and Wonderfully made. So beautiful and perfect. I was so excited to have the honor of documenting her sweet self and their family's love for each other. 

Thank you, Crawford Family for allowing me this privilege! She is precious and I am looking forward to another year serving alongside you all and getting to know little MJ as she grows!
