Jakob and Johan, who had their daughter Ellen with us at Circle Surrogacy, are an internet sensation. To capture the pregnancy journey and birth of their daughter, they hired photographer Tammy Schmit (Little Leapling Photography). When the Kansas-based photographer posted their album to her Facebook fan page, the post received 2,600 likes, 777 shares, and 128 comments!
From there, the Huffington Post picked up their story along with the photo series. The post from September 16, 2016 is called These Sweet Birth Photos Show There’s No ‘Right Way’ To Become A Family.
The photos capture a beautiful experience.
Jakob said in the article, “I’ve sort of wanted to become a dad as far back as I can remember, but I almost gave up the dream when I realized that I was gay. Fortunately, I fell in love with Johan who didn’t only share my dream; he was determined to make it come true.”
