A Spirit of Generosity

Spencer and I have been the fortunate recipients of two local photographers' extreme generosity. This first, Bill Millios, did our maternity pictures when I was pregnant with Isaac, came to the hospital and beautifully photographed our time with him on his birthday, and put together a beautiful slide show for us to use at Isaac's memorial service. Bill is incredibly talented, extremely generous, and the photographs we have of us with Isaac are something whose value cannot be measured.

The second, Crissie Traugott, contacted me last summer and offered to cover the first annual Isaac Timothy Delisle Memorial Golf Tournament. She did a beautiful job documenting the day! She also graciously offered to do some maternity pictures to capture my pregnancy with Eliana, as well as newborn pictures once Ellie arrives. Just wanted to share a few photos from our time this past Sunday in downtown Frederick. It was freezing, but a lot of fun.










Bill and Crissie, thank you both for your spirit of generosity and the priceless gifts you have given to Spencer and I. We are incredibly grateful.

I have been reading your blog and following your journey or some time now. I am often moved by your words and spirit. I was shocked when your blog today and saw pictures of you in downtown Frederick because I live there myself! Apparently it really is a small world! Thinking of you and wishing you love and peace in the last few months of your pregnancy, Erin

Those pictures are so beautiful.
I am so sorry about your son, I can't imagine the heartbreak. I have lost several babies through miscarriage. It's incredible how much and how fast you love your sweet miracles.
God bless you and your growing family!

So cute! I cannot wait to see more :) It's amazing how much lower you are carrying with Elaina than with Issac...maybe the old wives tales are true about how you carry boys and girls!

Hi,

You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started http://www.bellybundles.com. We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.

Thanks,
