PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: big miracles… ♥ Austin Preemie Photography

…come in teeny, tiny packages. Since the day I first read about their much too early and amazingly miraculous birth day, I’ve wanted to meet them. And tonight, I had the extreme honor of photographing these beautiful twin girls and their family. I was amazed. I was humbled. I was awed. I was impressed (by both the girls and by mom and dad). Most of all, I was excited to see how they’re going to change and grow over these next few months and to see what futures these two will embrace considering their tumultuous start in life.

Thank you all for letting me visit with you this afternoon. It was truly an honor to meet you and to get a glimpse into the hectic and extremely inspirational time you have all spent in the NICU.  I will celebrate with you the day they are both home safe and sound and in your arms!

    what powerful images – they take my breath away- and what a treasure for this family to have this captured so beautifully.

  2. Katelyn Says:

    WOW. these images are breathtaking. They will be glad to have these when the babies grow up into big healthy kids.
    I love the little foot detail and mom’s finger and baby hand. As if you couldnt tell by all the other pictures, the hair on the one baby’s arm is testament of how early they must have been.

    Wow! As the mom to preemie twins (2lbs each when born) I can tell you how much they will ALWAYS treasure these photos. These pictures bring back so many memories. I only wish I would have had you (or someone like you) to capture their time in the NICU. Of course, I have photos, but nothing like these.

    Many prayers for this family and their precious miracles!

    Hey Michele,
    I am not much of a blog poster but I felt compelled to say thank you for doing this. Obie and Trena, as Meredith said, are near and dear to us. We admire and love them very much. Our hearts have poured out for them during the wonderful albeit trying birth of their baby girls. As a Dad, getting to “see them in action” with Trinity and Kinsley and grasping how tiny they are in their new life is truly a Godly inspiration. Thanks.

    Obie and Trena, we love you very much. Praise God that your girls are coming along well.

    I know that the family will forever treasure these images and these will be memories that they will never forget! My twins were born at 31 weeks and spent 51 days in the NICU, so I myself have many images like these that I treasure! God bless the family as they work their way through these very tough times. Your work is beautiful – thank you for sharing.
