Twins! | Seattle Surrogate Maternity Photographer

I thought it would be fun to take a little trip back and first share some sweet announcements! Ryan and Loni had just found out they were having twins!

I asked Loni if she would like to write this post, there is nothing I could write that would really do these photos justice. Thanks for sharing Loni, couldn’t be happier for you!

What a journey it has been.

20 years of friendship that led to the last 7 years of trying to build a family.  Through all the struggles, the heartbreaks and days of nonstop tears we always had hope that one day we too would be parents.

It was February when we gave it our last shot, everything we had was put into this effort to create a family.   The day before Valentines Day we received the news our dreams were coming true.  In March we found out our dreams had come true twice!  We could not contain our excitement anymore and Lauren helped us create this announcement that was so fitting of our personalities.

Two years ago we were introduced to the woman who would help us fulfill our dream.  Jenni was the friend of a friend and a perfect candidate for carrying our baby.   We have been able to watch the babies grow, be by Jenni’s side and participate in all the moments of this journey.  We are forever grateful for the sacrifices Jenni has made to make our dream a reality.

This journey is without a doubt a testament to perseverance and a love that cannot be broken.  Our little boy and girl are already loved by so many and we cannot wait for their arrival.
