Not only has little miss Leighton been anticipated and loved by many, but she also has the most amazing guardian angel named James. I’d like to think that James was giving her butterfly kisses in the last shot! © carrie sandoval | newborn photographer

    Bless them all. Their story touched me so much. What a perfect baby girl… so loved already! I have no doubt her big brother James was present in that last shot. Just priceless!

    Though I’ve followed your work for a long time, I haven’t ever left a comment before because I look at your blog through google reader, but I just really wanted to take the time to tell you that you do amazing work. Seriously, inspiring. I just found out that I’m pregnant last week and your pictures are making me nearly teary-eyed. Thanks for sharing your talent.

    Welcome little Leighton, your family’s story really touched me when I read the other post for the first time ages ago

    to Carrie, Leighton and her family :)… it is amazing how life turns sometimes, how it touches us in it’s own mysterious ways… My own baby was an unfair “trade” & “exchange”… but he has been so well guarded and I am so thankfull now! I guess no other compensation would have had the ability to keep me warm and still smiling in my madness and grief… I believe these are blessed children and they will always be special… Carrie, as always, your images are amazing, I am speechless! Leighton, you are a sweet sweet baby!!! I am in tears!

    My heart goes out to this family reading the story about James. May you find comfort and happiness in his little sister and may she help you weather to storm.

    My heart just melted as I realized who’s baby sister this sweetheart is.

    Congratulations to this beautiful family – what a priceless gift to receive right before the holidays.

    And Carrie – your work is so inspiring and beautiful. Thank you.
    *I’m pretty sure your right about James in that last image 😉

    Carrie! These are stunning as usual. And I have to say that rarely a day goes by that I don’t think about Baby James, his family’s story and “I will go gently through this world.” My heart skipped a beat when I saw this post. A heartfelt congratulations to their family and a giant ‘welcome to the world’ to beautiful Leighton.

  14. Sheryl says:

    Oy Carrie, I’m left teary eyed! I remember when you went to do Baby James’ session. (ok, now I’m left speechless with emotion)! Welcome Baby Leighton!
