Hurricane Babies, Part II

Into every life, a little rain must fall. When Hurricane Matthew ripped through the Lowcountry last October, it had the unexpected side effect of contributing to a local “baby boom.” Professional newborn photographer Cassie Clayshulte recently captured the silver lining in the storm clouds with a unique photo shoot, documenting babies conceived during Hurricane Matthew. Nine months or so after the storm, eight mothers and, later, their newborn babies celebrated birth and rebirth with a focus on the future.

Please join us in congratulating the following Bluffton moms and in giving a warm welcome to their precious newborns:

Danielle Lewis – Baby Murphy

Savanna Dorsey – Baby Charlee

Lindsey Gullet – Baby Lilly

Brittany Day – Baby Scarlett

Molly Spears – Baby Blair

Taylor Pait – Baby Charlotte

Lindsey Binklee – Baby Charlee

Kayla Sumler – Baby Baylor

Perhaps it’s no coincidence that none of these parents decided to name their babies Matthew!
