It is amazing how you will find Baby Loss moms in the most unexpected places. Ava, Foster and I headed to the Ohio Professional Photographers conference a couple weeks ago. It was an amazing experience, where I met some wonderful people, and learned some priceless information for my business. However, something happened I never expected.
I was heading to a session entitled "Bundling Business with Babies". If you have been following my photography blog , you would know that I have a TON of children and newborn clients, so I was REALLY interested in this class. On my way, I ran into one of the wedding photographers who held a class a few hours prior. We got to chatting, and I ended up running late for the baby class.
As I walked into the class, I immediately noticed a somber environment. Some people had tears in their eyes, and the presenter was talking about how "This experience changed me", and made her realize how precious life was, and not to hold back. I leaned over to my new friend, Bess, and asked what she was talking about.
"She started her business for the same reason you started yours," Bess said with a hint of sadness in her voice, "She just told her story about losing her baby."
"Maybe it was a blessing I missed the introduction," I stated. I am sure if I HAD heard it, I would have broken down. It was apparent that 18 years later, this woman was still grieving her child. She will NEVER stop...as I have mentioned MANY times. It gets easier, but you never forget!
I approached Jessica Vogle after her presentation. I gave her a hug, and thanked her. Seeing her up there, speaking to at least 100 people about her photography business gave me hope that I too can be in that same situation 17 years from now.
I LOVE my photography, and every time I pick up my camera, I think of Rosalynn. The Lord works in Mysterious ways!!
Here are some recent photos from my recent shoots:
