I have always wanted the Lord to use my photography for Him. I will always feel it is my ministry. Nothing can replace a picture. I think if we could take things to heaven, photos would be one of those things. Its how we freeze time, yet still hear those little chuckles as we look back on a picture.
Watching Wyatt's story on facebook I felt the Lord move me. I felt I needed to give back in a way I knew how because this little family has had to give so much already. So I contacted Harley and asked if I could provide a session for them. I wanted to meet this Wyatt and help tell his story. Little did I know I would be walking away from our session uplifted (and with lots of baby fever!), because Wyatt was possibly the happiest baby I have ever met. Despite his hard start on life, this little guy had pure joy. Thats how I would describe him actually, pure joy! So thankful to meet you Wyatt. You are a little warrior and one day you may move mountains.
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." II Timothy 1:7
Wyatt's story: He was born with half a heart. Normally doctors suggest you terminate a fetus in his condition. He had his first open heart surgery at 5 days old. His first breath of fresh air at 3 months old. A second open heart surgery before he was even One. He has to be fed through a tube because he never learned to swallow properly. What a fighter! Not only is he strong but you can tell his parents are as well. In one of the photos you see Wyatt holding two stuffed monkeys. Those monkeys represent his siblings. They lost each of them late in pregnancy. I couldn't imagine. She carries their names around her neck engraved on a necklace, and you can see Wyatt playing with it in another photo. I hope these photos bring you comfort!
Thank you for sharing your story!
