My heart is in pieces for this dear family. You never know how attached you are to your clients until you are in complete tears over their sudden loss. Atreyu’s arrival into this world was something else for me and an experience I will cherish for the rest of my life. He was my first ever birth session; my first ever birth experience. As a newborn photographer, you always wish the absolute best for each of the families who’s beginnings you get to photograph. Each baby takes a little piece of my heart and I always look so forward to seeing them grow. My heart aches to know he will not be given that chance.
I wish I knew the right words to say. A way to help with the pain and loss. I can’t even piece together my own thoughts and feelings other than shock and heart ache. I know first hand just how deeply Stephanie loves and cares for her two children. They are more than just her world, they are her lifeline and I can’t even begin to imagine what she and her family are going through. My heart, prayers and condolences go out to them in the extremely difficult time. xx
Rest in sweet peace, beautiful baby boy.
If you would like to donate, the family does ask that you do so to the Baby’s Breath Foundation. It would be much appreciated if you could donate any amount in the memory of Atreyu Rylin Williams.
