As today is International Pregnancy and Infant loss day, I thought it only fitting to blog about Kate, Matt and their daughter Sienna. Two years ago, Kate and Matt needed the services of the Heartfelt when their beautiful daughter Sienna silently entered this world. Sadly, their story is not an uncommon one and members of Heartfelt are reminded of this far too often. So when I heard Kate and Matt were expecting their ‘rainbow baby’, I admit there was a selfish little part of me that longed to witness their joy when their baby arrived safely into their arms. I knew I’d found the perfect family for my ‘Random Act of Kindness’ photography session.
When Kate, Matt and Lochie arrived for their session little Lochie’s onesie said it all; “My big sister is a princess in heaven”. Armed with the obligatory nappies, spare clothes, wipes and big sister Sienna’s teddy bear and butterfly, we spent the next few hours photographing 6 day old Lochie. It was such a perfect way to spend a Sunday morning. So welcome to the world little Lochie, I know you will be surrounded by love and bring your Mummy and Daddy endless joy. I also have no doubt that your big sister Sienna is most definitely a princess in heaven xoxox
