a mother’s love…pictures of hope

on this valentine’s day i am going to share a story of a mother’s love.  one i experienced three months ago.  it has taken me this long to be able to write about my time with wyatt and his beautiful family.  the olig family has not been far from my mind since i met them. …

  • Brenda Larsen - Thank you for sharing your personal “God experience” with Wyatt and his family. God is good!

  • Cynthia Hellert - Oh Eydie, I sat here crying as I read this story…how brave this mother is. In memory of this little guy that I have now met through your beautiful photography, I have made a contribution to the Mother’s March for the March of Dimes. My family has been so blessed, but one cannot help thinking, “but for the grace of God, go I.”. Thank you for sharing baby Wy’s story, and please share with is heartbroken Mom that my love goes out to her.

  • Jessica - Oh, these pictures are amazing! Sarah (Elizabeth’s mama) is my husband’s cousin and a very dear friend of mine. She has been through so much since Elizabeth’s very early delivery and is daily torn between precious Elizabeth at the hospital and her three adorable children at home. I know these pictures mean so much to her, and I can’t thank you enough for sharing your amazing gift of photography with someone that is dear to me. And what a gift you have! Your whole website is amazing. Thank you again for your fantastic work!
