These family photos at Coronado Beach were lovely and truly remarkable. The Hart family flew in from Texas for a family vacation and some much needed relaxation. Their story is one of redemption and celebration. The Hart family recently lost their baby girl, Ruthie. They met her too soon under unimaginable circumstances.

Despite the terrible situation they’d walked through, the Hart family chose to honor Ruthies due date by going away as a family. To document the occasion, they chose a slice of paradise, Coronado, California, for their family photos. Hudson and Caroline, wrote letters to Ruthie on the way to the beach where their family session took place. They are so proud to tell her story, and their love for her shines through in these images.

As the sun set, I had a chance to speak with Lauren one on one about sweet Ruthie. Through the heartache in her voice, I could see joy in her eyes as she spoke of her little girl. Ruthie is a tiny, sweet, and strong little lady who fought for days for the chance to meet and be held by her mother. (Lauren was not able to go near Ruthie for 48 hours due to her medications) Lauren and Charley have walked through darkness, yet remain so positive and eager to keep Ruthies legacy alive.

To the Hart Family: Thank you for sharing Ruthies story. Thank you for choosing me to document this very special evening in honor of your sweet girl.
