Amy and Russ Maternity Session

Today I am so excited to share the news that my good friend Amy and her husband Russ have announced the news that they are pregnant! It's been a long road of infertility and they have managed to make it through with so much grace and faith. She shares her trials of enduring endometriosis and IVF as well as her insecurities of becoming a mother. Infertility is so common, approximately 10% of women, just over 6 million women in the United States alone, struggle to get pregnant. I personally know over a dozen women, close family and friends, who have had difficulty getting pregnant. The strength of these women is incredible and the faith they have to keep trying has taught me so much about perseverance.

If you'd like to read her story, she is sharing it on her blog today!

She called me a week or so before I was to move and told me the news! I was so thrilled for them and I'm glad we were able to shoot these images before I left Tulsa. I know it's cliche, but there really is nothing prettier than the glow of a pregnant woman!
