3 months and two days ago I was able to be a part of one of the most amazing experiences. I first meet Joy over 15 years ago in Sanford Maine at Pat’s pizza so we go way back. After my sister described what an amazing experience it was to photograph my birth and after being blown away by my pictures, I wanted to give it a shot (no pun intended) so I reached out to Joy and her hubby Matt seeing that they were expecting a baby soon. I knew that it might be a long shot considering that I hadn’t seen Joy in years, we had reconnected on Facebook at some point, and it was her first baby which in itself can be terrifying. We met for coffee and passion ice tea and they said “YES!” I was over the moon excited!
On April 14 2014 I met this sweet soon to be family of three at the hospital. I was nervous, excited and had no idea what to expect and I wasn’t even having the baby. Having two babies of my own I had no idea that this would be such an emotional experience for me. Being present for someone’s entrance into this world really is….indescribably. Saying that I am privileged or honored to be in the room really doesn’t cut it. Being at a loss for words is okay because I am a photographer not a writer. Please enjoy Matt, Joy and Milo’s story.
Thank you again and again Fletcher family for letting me into your world at such a special time, I will never forget it.
