Michael House Guelph is a wonderful organization. It is a crisis pregnancy home that is dedicated to providing housing and services to young women who need support during their pregnancy or early parenting years. I have offered to take newborn baby photos for all of the new moms at Michael House. The moms are all so sweet and they are always peeking around the corner to see what I’m doing. At this particular baby photo shoot, one of the other moms was quite excited to show me how she had framed the photos I gave to her. It was so sweet to see how much she was enjoying the photos!
My connection to places like Michael House goes way back into my family history. My grandfather grew up in a rural area, and his mother used to take in pregnant girls from the city. They would be able to ‘go visit an aunt’ before they started showing, and then come home after the baby was born and given to a loving family. My grandpa used to be teased at school for living with all the unwed mothers, but we have maintained my great grandmother’s values in lessening the burden of choosing life.
Anyhow, onto the newborn pictures- 2 little lovers, both photographed in the same week.
