Pure Love – A Mother & Her New Daughter

By  |  3 Comments

This beautifully documented mommy & me session from Bethanne Arthur Photography is going to tug at your heartstrings. This new momma’s expressions are so beautiful and little Ellington is such a gem. It’s so clear to see how loved this little darling is. We positively adore this story. <3

This session was incredibly special for me. I know Sarah and her husband, Tommy through work, and I also knew about their longtime struggle with infertility. For years, they tried to create a family of their own. Eventually, they looked to adoption. It wasn’t an easy road for them at all, and they have finally welcomed baby Ellington into their lives and hearts. Upon hearing the wonderful news of their successful adoption, I gifted Sarah and Tommy with a photo session. I contacted Sarah about doing a sweet “mommy and me” session at one of my favorite locations (The Studio – Hampton Roads).

Watching Sarah with Ellington was such a beautiful experience. If anyone deserved this miracle baby, it is her and Tommy. They are some of the sweetest, kindest, most loving people I know. I couldn’t be happier for them they their wish and prayers were finally answered. Ellington is such a lucky little girl to have been brought into their lives. Tommy unfortunately had to deploy within a couple of weeks of them bringing baby E home, but he receives constant updates and pictures of Sarah and Ellington. My heart aches for their family to be whole again soon. Their story is one that is touching, beautiful, and filled with an indescribable amount of love.
