Baby on board – On a perfect Friday afternoon, with a little breeze in the air, we set sail at the DUBAI OFFSHORE SAILING CLUB. I was lucky enough to photograph Leanne and Rob’s new baby bump, for their big announcement to the world. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing for the couple, and with this Leanne is sharing their story, with hope and inspiration.
Leanne’s Story – ‘You may notice that there is a little bump in this picture… This is our tiny miracle in the making, which we both could not be more grateful and happy about and we cannot wait to meet him or her mid July!!
Those of you who know us well will know that this has not been an easy road for us. Pregnancy is a true gift and something we do not for a second take for granted, after an ectopic pregnancy last January and various hospital trips, surgeries and disappointing news, we are now so happy to start 2017 with this happy news. We are sharing this with you, as we are all guilty of only sharing our best selves on social media and not the realities of life behind the photos. Reflecting back, I now realise that if this was a test on how we work together through difficult times and become stronger as a team, never faltering to love and support each other and never giving up hope, then I think we have passed this test and realise that everything that has happened has just been part of our journey together. I’m sure this will not be the last test and it certainly was not the first – it is simply life. We have learned to trust that the universe always has bigger a plan, even if we do not understand it at the time.
We would both like to thank everyone who has been a part of our journey for their continued love and support, we are feeling extremely blessed and full of gratitude. And the biggest thanks for me goes to my wonderful husband Robert who will make an incredible father. I am so happy and lucky to be sharing this with you, thank you for making my life so complete.’
I am so happy to have been part of this special day and can’t wait to meet the newest member of the family, later the year!
