Family lovers, today I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to baby Elliott Thomalla! I true gift from above. Those that know his story, truly know the value of life and the precious gift that he is to his family! Elliot was born on Christmas eve and only 33 weeks, gestation and weighs just over 5 pounds. His mom spent 41 days in the hospital as a patient. Elliott spent 6 weeks in NICU and special care nursery after his birth. It has been a long emotional road for this amazing family. But the future looks bright, Elliot is growing stronger every day, and is too precious for words. He was 9 weeks old at our session. (only 2 and ½ weeks old adjusted!!)
Anyway, as you can see from the pictures below, Elliott, his gorgeous family and I had a wonderful time together. Elliots mom, Ally has been strong and courageous and shows the lengths we go to as mothers to protect and nurture our children. She has become a wonderful friend and I look forward to watching her children grow up!
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. Earl Nightingale
