I got an email today from Jessica (mysticalgal28). I was a part of your DDC back in 2009, and then we lost our daughter Bella Rose when I was 20 weeks. Some of you may remember. Jessica says you do. Her email touched me and I was floored that 2 years later thoughts of our Bella still linger from virtually complete strangers. If you're curious, I thought I'd post a little update on me:

After Bella was stillborn I dove head first into professional photography. My journey has been incredible. I was taking portraits but I've recently stopped and I am teaching photography instead both in person and online! I teach moms photography tips here (lots of freebies for download there if you're looking to take better photos of your little ones!): Photography Classes To Nourish The Mind, Body, & Soul and I teach a healing after baby loss e-course in honor of Bella here: Illuminate: Lighting The Path To Photographic Healing

2) I think this best news is, I am momma to a healthy, happy, AMAZING 15 month old born a little over a year after we lost Bella. Her name is Brielle Rose (her and Bella share the same middle name). This is our holiday card - the photos were taken by me but the card was designed by one of my photography students.




In any event, Jessica encouraged me to check in with you lovely ladies (THANK YOU JESSICA), and I hope you and your little ones are doing well. I can't believe they are approaching 2 (if they are not 2 already). Time sure is flying by. xo.

I'll always remember Bella's story...I remember when you were going through it all. You are truly inspiring and I love how you got into photography and doing this in honor of Bella. Your site is great and I'll be checking it out!

Brielle is a doll and so lucky to have you! Good luck with everything and thanks for checking in!

Thank you so much ladies for your warm welcoming words. I'll always feel a little tug at my heart strings that I should be here with you all. I am still a mama to my Bella just in a very different way now - trying to keep her memory alive. xo.

And Brielle at only 15 months is in the 99% for height and weight so she is probably the same size as many of your LOs checking it at 32 inches and 28lbs!

Hi Beryl!!
I was talking to Jessica yesterday and when she told me she found you I couldn't believe it!
I had been thinking of you and Bella for the past few days and I was wondering how you were doing. So I was incredibly happy when she told me about Brielle and that you were doing great.
We will never forget Bella! She is as much part of us as any other baby here

Brielle is gorgeous and you always were so talented with photography, I am not surprised you're successful in what you do and love.

Keep in touch!
