When I put out a casting call for newborn triplets, I never imagined how much these little angels would change my life. I wanted to photograph triplets for selfish reasons – I wanted them in my portfolio! The session was complimentary for that reason, but once I met the parents and learned their story, I felt called to attempt to make a difference. Being a lower enlisted family of 5 prior to the natural conception of triplets, you can image the shock these parents must have experienced. As if that weren’t a large enough adjustment, they learned they were also facing a military relocation within a few weeks. I knew that enough wonderful people subscribed to my page that we could possibly help this family.
After sharing a sneak peek image of the babies and a synopsis of the family situation, the donations have poured in from all over the world. Countless fans have given a few dollars here and there that have added up to make a huge difference. A stranger to the family donated $100 and a newborn photographer of triplets located in Canada donated $100. Another stranger to the family is shipping a very expensive triplet stroller from Florida. A struggling military family with 7 children dropped off diapers and $30. Moms all over town have messaged me with clothes that their babies have outgrown and they will be dropping off for the family.
I am truly in awe of the generous people I am surrounded by. The family will be relocating next week and I can’t wait to shower them with love from all of you. Your gifts and donations will be priceless to this family. You, my friends, have changed this family’s life.
