Fort Worth Newborn Photography
Fresh 48 in Hospital
Fort Worth Newborn Photography and Birth Photography. Beautiful, passionate, breathtaking, scary and sometimes tragic, that is the reality of childbirth. Our bodies can incredibly create and accomplish so much. It is even more incredible to watch one woman, one family accomplish this twice in one year. With loss, life always follows and this sweet family experienced both in 2016. Their tender angel Parker was born sleeping in January of 2016. This was followed so closely by the incredible birth of his little brother in December of 2016. This is Hudson’s Story.
I took my time that morning thinking back on a day much like that almost a year ago and I noticed something, it’s as if my own memories are directly tied to the emotions of the weather. As my tear stricken face made its way to the hospital in January of 2016 the roads were silent and the sky was a wash of gray. The sky was full of so much muted color that it deafened the sounds that Saturday morning.
This December 2016 morning however, there was something else happening, although just as fitting. The sky was a soft gray and blue with a tiny tint of dark gray. This was diffusing the light in such a way that it allowed a blinding brilliance of yellow laced sunlight to seep through. The sun sat visibly behind the clouds and overtook me with its beauty. It’s soft but striking light made the surface of almost everything sparkle, but only just. Life was muted that morning but it sparkled. It was as muted as happiness tends to be as it falls on weighted shoulders.
See, Hudson was born in the same year that his brother Parker was born sleeping. I was privileged to play the role of memory keeper to both of them and I hold that office with such pride. Fort Worth newborn photography is about being part of something so pure and so much bigger than yourself.
Such Power Such Grace
Their parents, along with the rest of their family shook me with the bond they carry for one another and I urge us all to take that lesson and build on it. Seek out those who need your kindness most and let that wave of passion and beauty take hold in the world.
I Challenge You
I’m issuing a challenge to every single person who takes the time to read this far, it’s up to you. It’s up to you to transform hate, fear, loathing, animosity, and rage into something much more pure. Sit and watch a child today, learn from their unwillingness to be overtaken by these emotions. Even my selfish toddlers who don’t completely understand social rules understand that kindness outweighs a tantrum.
Fort Worth newborn photography is proof that we all began life in that pure form, even the most vile of adults were once protected in this way. So my challenge to you is to find that child within yourself again and set it free. Allow your naivety to come forth and slash the chains binding a stranger. Release kindness wherever you can.
I’ve been thanked for giving this family a gift but my kindness is a selfish gift for me. The smiles on their faces, the warmth in their kind words, the thought that Hudson will have a chance to relive such an important moment in his family’s history, are all such wonderful motives. These things are gifts this family has given me by allowing me to become part of their story.
It’s so easy to be kind.
I hope you enjoyed this Fort Worth newborn photography gallery and video and hope that I have passed on a spark to you that will ignite the world.

” Filling my house up with the smell of coffee this morning I realize how much I instinctively rely on that smell alone to determine how my day is going to go. If I never get around to making it, busy, stressful, aggravating. If it’s the first thing I do, it’s a lazy couch day. The days I wake up knowing I’m going to treat myself to a coffee house, yeah usually Starbucks- but sometimes not, are the best days. I wake up with determination and pride, I am about to go have so much fun! Every morning begins the same though, no matter what the coffee situation might be. ” – click this link to be taken to Kimberly Haydn Consulting
