Introducing the Incomparable Evie Kate

Errin and Vegor are two of my best friends. They are generous, thoughtful, honest, hard-working, loyal people. They wanted to become parents for many years yet infertility kept them wanting. Month after month, treatment after treatment they kept hoping, they kept trying. They invested their money, effort, tears, research, tests, and time all in the hopes that this time it would work. Late last year I was lucky enough to see Errin's face when she realized that the pregnancy tests she held were, in fact, positive.

Getting pregnant wasn't easy for Errin and neither was being pregnant. She was bombarded with every imaginable complication during her pregnancy, from gestational diabetes to tendinitis and hypertension. Errin was graceful and patient as her hopes of a natural labor were burned up in the Summer heat.

On August 10th Errin and Vegor went to see their Dr for a weekly non-stress test and instead of returning home they were sent to Labor and Delivery. Errin's blood pressure was dangerously high and Evie was coming now, nearly a month early. And thus, a much awaited daughter arrived on an uncharacteristically cool August day with a head full of hair!

I giggled out loud when I scrolled down to the pictures of Evie and all her hair. The look on Errin's face when the nurse was handing her the baby was so sweet. Like you could see years of waiting on her face.

Nice work on these Ash. I think photography becomes an art form when you can make people feel something as they look at the pictures. These were a work of art.

p.s. I love that you took a picture of the sky. Such a good memory of an important day.
