I can’t even remember where I first heard about Maggie’s Place, but it stuck in my memory for years. I am very pro-life and one night while praying I started to think about this wonderful place I had read about and wished I could be part of.
“Maggie’s Place is a community that provides houses of hospitality for expectant women who wish to achieve their goals in a dignified atmosphere. Following Catholic social teaching, we recognize that we are responsible to and for one another. We challenge each other to strive toward personal growth, to welcome the gift of every person that enters our door, and to promote positive social change.
In this way, we celebrate and provide for the next generation”.
I made a mental note to be sure to email and ask if I could possibly do some photos of the babies. To my delight I got a response very quickly and they said “yes”! Maggie’s Place has 4 different homes in the Arizona valley and I get to meet all the new babies. I can’t even tell you how excited I am.
I was super nervous with the first shoot. I really wanted it to go well because I was so honored to even be allowed in. When I got there I felt very welcome and at home. Just like I was hanging out with my girl friends. The two baby girls I had the pleasure to photograph were SO beautiful. They were little angels. I was BEYOND in love!!! Their mothers were so wonderful and loving, it was so amazing to meet them. It was just an amazing experience for me and my hubby. I cant wait till we get to visit one of the other homes (later this month!). Look out for more blogs with more sweet newborns!!!
