{Inspirational} Maternity Session by Alana Donovan Photography

Today we have a truly {inspirational} Maternity Session to share with you courtesy of Alana Donovan Photography. This is the story of Amanda + Matt, a couple that met and had an instant connection - one different than either of them had ever experienced before and not just with each other, but also with their faith. After they were married, Matt began leaving little sticky notes for Amanda and she saved them all...over 5 years worth, as little reminders of their love. When they decided to start a family they were faced with some challenging times, but it was their faith {and Matt's encouraging sticky notes} that got them through these moments and eventually on their path to parenthood. In Amanda's words "It's amazing what something as simple as a little note can do for your relationship. It truly is the little things that mean the most. I hope to one day show Hayden Grace all of the sticky notes that Daddy left Mommy throughout their relationship. I hope that she finds a man as amazing and caring as her father. He truly makes me a happy woman." Thank you Amanda + Matt for allowing us to share your story and Alana Donovan Photography for capturing the images of this amazing couple.

I {LOVE} how they incorporated their precious sticky notes to create an amazing keepsake photo...

Isn't she gorgeous in this vintage-style lace dress?

One of my favorite photos from this session is this "before & after" - SO precious!

Many blessings to Amanda, Matt and baby Hayden Grace - you have a beautiful family!
