I want to ask for prayer for a sweet family! Mr. & Mrs. Trevino gave me permission to share their sweet girl with you today. I am honored to be a photographer for a foundation called “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep”. This allows me the opportunity to provide the gift of remembrance photography for parents suffering the loss of a baby. I started doing this amazing photography after dear friends of mine lost their sweet baby boy. It is such a blessing to use my passion for photography to help someone have a treasure of their beautiful baby during their time of grief! I have been nothing short of amazed by these families and their beauty in the ashes.
This past week I captured this sweet Mommy and Daddy as they said hello and goodbye to their sweet Mayella Harmony. I watched them stamp a keepsake of her precious hands and feet. I watched as this sweet daddy and their amazing nurse Amanda washed such a sweet and beautiful baby girl and helped dress her in her beautiful newborn outfit and matching bow. Both mom and dad selflessly loved one another and were so strong for each other during this unimaginable pain.
Today is Mayella’s service and today I am thinking about these two parents and the heartache they are walking through. There is no doubt in my mind that they carry the strength of the LORD! My prayer is that you both allow the LORD to use you in a mighty way and that you trust in Him in those moments of weakness and struggle that will follow. I am so thankful you are celebrating her little life. I celebrate your sweet girl with you today! I thank God for the moments you were able to spend with her and grieve the moments that were taken from you too soon. I pray the LORD will restore your hope and your heart. I am so sorry for your loss. You are loved sweet ones!
