Welcome Baby Zaynab | Northern VA Photographer

On September 21, 2017 at 4:10 A.M. sweet Zaynab made her entrance Earthside, at 32 weeks gestational age.  She weighed 4 lbs. 9 oz. and was 17 inches long.  Before I go any further let me just say this sweet soul has absolutely completed our family.  She has brought peace and calmness and has been an absolute light.

Our birth story this go around was beautiful, as they all are in their own unique and different ways.  I won’t get into too many details right now, but I will tell you it was beautiful despite being in labor for 24 hours and a long surgery.  I was scheduled for a c section just a couple weeks later, but went into labor again and started progressing shortly after hitting the 24 hour mark.  I couldn’t of imagined a different entrance for her though, the doctors were amazing, kind and loving and I was blessed enough to have my husband with me and my mama with me for right up until we delivered.  The moment I heard Zaynab cry I knew right away my soul was complete.  I am forever grateful for the nursers, doctors, my husband, my mama, my family, my children and God.  Zaynab you are perfect in all ways and you are so very loved.  After two and half weeks in the NICU you are home with all of us and we are all thrilled.  I can’t wait to share our birth story in depth at some point, but for now I want to introduce her and share her beauty and the love we all have for her.  <3.


If you have emailed me or reached out, please be patient while I return all calls and emails soon!  I’m currently booking sessions for the new year and I am so looking forward to enjoying this time at home and the new year when I start doing sessions again!
