Fuqua Family | Newborn Session

hannah distasio | 8.1.16


When Danielle reached out to me a few weeks ago about taking pictures of Charlie meeting his new baby brother for the first time, I could not be more excited! To get to witness such a sweet, tender and beautiful moment for this family and to get to capture it all for them was the biggest blessing and honor I could've asked for. 

I arrived at the hospital about 10 minutes before the other family members, who were bringing Charlie to meet his new brother, Miles Elliot. When we received the text that they had arrived, Ben went down to the lobby to bring Charlie up first. Watching Charlie giddily scurry down the hallway, hand in hand with his Dad, was one of the most adorable things I've ever seen. As Charlie pushed the door open his face lit up with a huge smile, another insanely cute moment. Ben and Danielle explained to Charlie that Miles was his baby brother, at which Charlie responded in toddler language with comments such as "he's good," and "let's take him home." The whole scene was precious and heart warming. 

The Fuqua's hold a special place in my heart because of the impact they've made on my life, both individually and as a couple, in being a constant example of what it looks like to live your life fully for Jesus. They are so very loved by our entire community, and now they've added another member to the family who will be equally as loved. I'm SO excited for you guys and for Charlie, who is now a big brother! Thank you for allowing me to capture this beautiful memory.
