Welcome sweet Lacey Joy Watts! Loressa and Ryan welcomed their adorable baby girl on September 18 and we just loved getting to capture this sweet family at their in-home, lifestyle newborn session! Loressa and Ryan’s story is one of redemption and grace, and having Lacey here is a testament to God’s goodness and faithfulness. It has been so sweet to watch these two become parents. Just three years ago we were there to document Ryan proposing to Loressa and now here we are to document their growing family.
In 2014 Loressa was hit head-on in a car crash that led to many weeks of hospital stays, physical therapy, and multiple surgeries. 14 months after her accident, Loressa met Ryan at a Baylor Hospital awards banquet, honoring patients that had made substantial progress. Ryan was the handsome drummer at the event and Loressa was being presented with an award. Six months later they were engaged and then six months after that they were married!
Through each step of their journey, the work of the Lord has been so evident. Loressa passed on her own middle name, Joy, to Lacey and there couldn’t be a better word for the two of them to share. Through many tough nights in the hospital following Loressa’s accident, Psalm 30 verse 5 “…but joy comes with the morning” was something we all held close to. And now that Lacey is here, she brings a new joy to all who see her! What an honor to see this story unfold as we all watch God work through His daily blessings.
