Jeanine and Mikhail’s maternity session was nothing short of magical! If you’ve been following along on my blog, you’ll see their journey from their 1 year anniversary, to their pregnancy announcement, and now their sunrise maternity session.
We woke up at the crack of dawn, while the stars were still twinkling in the sky, and headed off to the beach to watch the sun rise. Being winter, it was icy cold that morning, but you never would have guessed it when looking at the love in Jeanine and Mikhail’s eyes.
This is definitely one maternity session and magical sunrise I will never forget! Now for a heartwarming letter from this beautiful expecting mama-to-be:
My dearest baby girl,
You were loved and wanted long before you were even a little speck in my uterus. Wanting to be a mother, YOUR mother, has been my dream for as long as I can remember. You are my BIGGEST dream come true! There is so much I can’t wait to show you and share with you, just the thought of your arrival makes me burst with excitement.
I absolutely cannot wait to meet you, breathe you in, and stare at you for hours on end. The mere fact that your daddy and I were capable of making such a perfect little human, completely blows my mind. I am beyond excited to see what you will look like and if your cheeks are really as chubby as they look on the last few scans ☺
I can’t wait to read to you. Books are a great treasure. Through them you can travel, build great things, and most importantly, learn. I hope you love reading, just as much as I always have. I will do my very best to encourage a love for reading in you and I absolutely cannot wait until the day that you start telling me your own little stories.
My hopes and dreams for you are endless, most of all, I dream of a happy little girl who will love her mommy as much as I love mine. I hope you will learn to confidently be your own person and know that you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to. I dream of a kind, respectful little girl who treats others with compassion and kindness.
I promise to show you love in all its best forms. I’ll love your dad, our families, and friends. With words and actions, I’ll show it and you will feel it… a love so big that it will fill you up and make you feel safe.
One more thing: You may not understand this for a while, but THANK YOU!
Thank you for bringing a whole new sense of purpose into our lives. Thank you for every kick and hiccup that lets me know that you are okay. Thank you for bringing your daddy and I closer, for being the reason we love each other more, even when we thought we couldn’t. Thank you for making us smile every time we think about you calling us “mommy” and “daddy”. Thank you for being the most beautiful thing in our lives. We may not know all the details of your little face yet but you’re a miracle and miracles are BEAUTIFUL!!!
