Capturing Grace ~ The Schoonover Maternity Session ~ Austin Maternity Photography

Oh, what a soft spot I have in my heart for these three. And how honored I am to have played a small part in capturing their story.

It's not mine to tell so I won't go into too much detail, but this incredibly courageous couple chose LIFE for their baby girl, Grace, even despite a fatal neural tube defect diagnosis at 12 weeks pregnant. Mama Stephanie carried and loved her precious girl to term, delivered her peacefully, and their new family of three got to spend 10 beautiful hours together before little Grace drifted away on the wings of angels. I can't even write these words without tears pouring from my eyes. Grace's story touched so many lives, mine very much included. 

Here's just a little peek at some of the beautiful, sun-drenched shots we captured back in late April. I'll always look back fondly on the time I spent with Stephanie, Andy, and little Grace safe inside her mama.
