I wanted to repost this today, because today would have been the photographer’s 33rd birthday. I didn’t know Jamie Anderson all that well—she took newborn photos of my son, Lincoln, when he was 8 weeks old and we kept in touch frequently after that. She often provided photos for my articles. We had a few things in common…we both had a deep passion for the work that we did, we both believed in supporting women, and we both had a love for our hometown of Houston, Texas. When she died unexpectedly, I don’t know why it hit me as hard as it did. But I guess that was just the kind of person she was. She made an impact on so many people around her.
You can see from her photos that she was a brilliant photographer, and she absolutely loved what she did. Her tag line was God creates them, I capture them. As labor and delivery nurses, we see women bring life into this world every day. I’m so proud to be a labor nurse. We must never take it for granted—Life is a precious gift. God creates it, and we witness it ❤
To every nurse out there that dedicates their hard work to their patients and profession, THANK YOU. When you’re exhausted, and you don’t know how much longer you can do the work you do, remember that beauty is all around us. And tomorrow is a new day 🙂
Thank you Jme Portraits for allowing me to use your incredible images!
Until my next delivery ❤
