I love this session because Jennie’s story is so inspirational and this session shows the beautiful connection that Jennie and Dixie share as mother and daughter. After being diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, Jennie’s doctors discouraged her dreams of having a child. While disappointed, she knew that if God had it in his plans for her, it would happen. After becoming pregnant and spending most of the 2nd and 3rd trimester in and out of the hospital with lung issues (and the real possibility that after giving birth she may have to be put on the list for a double lung transplant), she was scared, but so anxious for her baby to be here because she just knew things would be better once she could hold her in her arms. When she did finally deliver and the doctor listened to her lungs he was shocked saying, “theres a night and day difference”. Dixie continues to give Jennie strength and she is such an inspiration to other mothers who struggle with CF.
My mission at Sarah Sidwell Photography is to capture families in a way that conveys feeling and capture moments forever in time. I am based in Franklin, TN – just outside of Nashville – and love photographing growing families for parents who value timeless, natural, and heartfelt images. I believe that mothers and fathers need to be in the photos with their children because the love shared between a parent and child is timeless and photographs together reinforces the love of a family.
