    • Dana

      Hello 🙂 I nominate myself. I am 4 months pregnant, and am very much looking forward to making and having memories through the lens with you! My sister in law had her maternity shots taken by you, and I was blown away! XxReplyCancel

    • Kayte Gavin

      I am nominating my little sister, Kim Nikolic! She is one of the most caring, selfless moms I know and is welcoming her second bundle of joy in May. No one captures those first moments better than Saren so I would love for her to have those special keepsakes! ❤️ReplyCancel

    • Erin Strain

      I am nominating my sister in law, Courtney Hanks. She is a hardworking maternity nurse who gives her all to babies, mamas, and families each and every day (and probably will right up to her due date in April!). Knowing her leave time may be limited and getting back to work means longer shifts and time away from her soon to be little guy, this session and the photos from it would be create the sweetest memories to have and look back on!ReplyCancel

    • Geraldine Bencivengo

      I (Grandmother if baby to be) would like to nominate Rose Higgins and her soon to be son coming this April! She is the mother to 2 beautiful girls and they are over the moon to meet their baby brother to be. This baby came as a complete surprise and she would be thrilled and shocked to be able to celebrate her complete family together with a full newborn session and all the perks!ReplyCancel

      Nominee: Courtney Hanks, I believe Courtney is someone who deserves this photo shoot for a multitude of reasons beyond a nice opportunity. She is caring and responsible individual, who has taken charge in her life, and has created a welcoming environment for her expected first born child. She always works so hard for everything she does, and this would be a wonderful relief in regards to making everlasting memories. Keep up the great work, and keep making people proud. ReplyCancel

      I (Rachel’s mom) would like to
      nominate Rachel Winoski for this shoot. Rachel is so blessed to have 2 children
      and one on the way arriving in June this year. My grandson, Benji, will be 4 in
      June and my granddaughter daughter Vivian who will turn 2 in April. When
      someone from the outside looks at Rachel’s life, it is very easy to say wow,
      she has two healthy children who are 22 months apart, pregnant for the 3rd
      time, and assume everything is normal. What people don’t know about her is that
      she sprinted a marathon to have her three children. Rachel grew up in a very
      large family. My husband and I each have 4 siblings. Rachel has one bother; 21
      cousins and her cousins have 19 children and the number is growing. Growing up,
      we were always surrounded by a huge family and we never once heard the word
      infertility. When you grow up, no one envisions that this could be part of your
      story. It became a very harsh reality of Rachel’s and one we knew nothing about.

      Rachel married her husband Mike
      in 2015 and they both always knew that they wanted a family. In the process of
      trying to have children, Rachel learned that she has a rare genetic disorder. Rachel
      has something called a tripled balanced translocation. Essentially, her DNA is
      rearranged, and the doctors believe that at some point in her life, this shift
      happened, she wasn’t born this way. They have seen examples where individuals
      have one or two chromosomes strands that have broken off and attached to other
      chromosomes, but they confirmed that none of their doctors, a majority of which
      had over 30 years’ experience, had ever seen a situation where three had done
      this. Rachel was the first in this Connecticut practice.

      Thankfully, it has no impact on her
      personal health which is essentially why we never knew she had it. However, the
      only side effect it does have is that it makes it extremely difficult to have
      children. The only way you learn you have it is through multiple miscarriages
      which was the case for Rachel.  It took
      multiple losses and essentially 2 years for Rachel to get pregnant with Benji.
      For those that have had similar experience, the doctors and nurses call it
      “graduation” when you transfer from your IVF clinic back to your regular
      doctors. Although, her doctor and nurse were her biggest cheerleaders, Rachel
      distinctly remembers when it came time to graduate, them saying to Rachel, we
      will be honest with you now. We aren’t really sure how you got here. Your son
      and any future children you may have are miracles. When your doctors and
      nurses, who believe in science and statistics tell you that, it is forever

      Rachel and her husband spent the past
      6 years at the IVF clinic in order to welcome Benji, Vivian, and baby girl
      Winoski this June. When we look back at her journey thus far, we really wonder
      how Rachel survived certain moments. We would love to honor Rachel and her family
      with these photos for her to have a forever memory in their home as their
      family will now be complete with their 3 miracles babies. ReplyCancel

    • Allie Blair

      I would like to nominate my close friend, Emily Adams for this photo shoot! She has had a hard pregnancy, most of it during COVID surges, making it hard for her to enjoy such a beautiful period in her life!!

I don’t want her to forget the beautiful newborn stage and she deserves to have those beautiful days commemorated!ReplyCancel

      Emily Adams. I want to nominate her because this year we will have our first child together. Emily has always wanted to be a mom and I admire her love and efforts towards loving everyone in her life. 2022 has brought a lot of struggles into her life and I think this would not only ease her mind but get her the newborn pictures she wants but we didn’t think we would be able to have. ReplyCancel

      Nominating my good friend Jenna Soper. She is the most selfless & giving person I know. After struggling for over a year to conceive she was ready to talk about solutions with her doctor. Just shy of a week until that appointment she found out she was in fact pregnant! Her fiancé had just lost his mother & this news was what they needed to get them through the dark days. She’s due in September & we are over the moon excited for her!<3ReplyCancel
