This session with the Lewis family officially goes down as the biggest family we have photographed! It might also be one of the most unique family sessions ever, and you have to read on to find out the sweet meaning behind those rainbow balloons.
The Lewis crew (6 siblings, their spouses, and a whole lot of grandbabies), came together for an extended family vacation up in the Breckenridge mountains. They hired us for a family shoot to celebrate and announce one of the daughter’s pregnancy.
To give you a little back story, one year earlier, April (one of the daughters) heartbreakingly miscarried when she became pregnant with her first baby. Following her miscarriage, April’s sister-in-law (her brother’s wife) became one of our favorite people ever when she offered to be the surrogate carrier for April and her husband! CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE?!?! How sweet is this family!! Their telling of this story had us all in tears. You could truly feel the love and excitement present that day, and we were once again reminded of the power of love and the bonds that family makes. We are just overjoyed for April + husband, and the entire Lewis crew on their soon-to-be new member.
On the day of their session, the family arrived with rainbow balloons (in honor of their rainbow baby) and so. much. joy. Each family member, from the grandparents to the littlest grandbaby, was elated about this little blessing that would soon be joining their ranks. We couldn’t have been more honored to be there to not only capture the love and history between them, but in celebrating life itself!
