Massart Photography heads to Hope Hospice & Palliative Care for Baby Angela

Wedding, family and newborn photographers serving Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut

I’m going to keep this short (well I’m going to try) because I could sit here for hours and try to find the perfect words and it still wouldn’t be enough…

From Angela’s mother on their Facebook page:

“I was 16 weeks into my pregnancy when the doctors told us our baby girl was not going to live after birth. After refusing abortion for many times, we carried her to term embracing life and treasuring every single moment we had with her.”

(Any negative opinions on this matter will be removed, just please don’t.)

Well, Angela proved that miracles do happen and is 3 years and 8 months old in these photos.

Yesterday, we headed to Hope Hospice and Palliative Care to take some photos for the family to treasure. The Izzy Foundation organized a princess visit for them so we timed our visit accordingly.

While we didn’t know of Angela until yesterday, all it takes is a quick glance at their Facebook page to see that she has spent the last 3 years and 8 months full of smiles and incredibly loved. One of the relationships that is repeatedly mentioned on their page is her bond with her sister Elizabeth. Elizabeth really enjoyed the princess visit and that brought a smile to our faces since we cannot imagine what she is going through.

Since we offer access to our closet of dresses to all of our clients, how could we not do the same for them?? We brought a couple of princess dresses that looked beautiful on them. As we were leaving, we decided that, how could we take these back??? We hope that they bring them a little joy in this horrendous time and that Elizabeth has the opportunity to twirl in her new gown with her sister watching over her.

Everyone was incredible yesterday and those darn nurses…. we have said it before when photographing similar sessions and we will say it again; they are freaking heroes and our hearts go out to them for all that they do. I’m sure there are many other people who deserve credit for all of the support they have provided this beautiful family…

I’m not going to proof read this, I’m going to run back into the house and hug my son while keeping Angela and her family in our thoughts on what is sure to be the hardest day of their lives. I just wanted to get this out as soon as possible in hopes to give a smile to all of the people grieving for Angela and hoping to bring them some peace seeing the amount of love she is surrounded with.

It’s always a good time for photos but if you are losing a loved one, reach out to your photographers… we have the power to give you an incredible gift and I KNOW that many photographers around the world, are honored to do this type of session for people in these situations <3
