I met Shalane on FACEBOOK & discovered that she was also a quirky Jesus-loving weirdo!

I soon found out that she had miscarried. Her name went on my list. I started a list nearly 9 years ago.

I prayed for women that longed to have a baby.

Shalane longed to be a mother. I was SO excited with her when she found out she was expecting.

I cried with her when she found out they were losing another baby.

I prayed. We prayed. We cried.

When she found out she was pregnant this time – she messaged me.

And we prayed.

LOOK AT THAT FACE!!

He might be one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen!

Shalane stopped by one morning while she was in town & I just HAD to take a few photos of him!!

THOSE CHEEKS!!

OH MY HEART!!! THAT LITTLE ROUND PERFECT FACE!!

Shalane – I loved visiting with you on my kitchen floor. Marveling over that miracle boy of yours!!!

 

*J* FAMILY

Last year – Jan gave her mom a gift certificate for Christmas! LAST YEAR!!

We had been trying to schedule but couldn’t find a date that worked for everyone.

I took Jan & Nick’s wedding photos 5 years ago & their maternity photos in late August – I was secretly hoping they would wait till after their little girl arrived to schedule their extended family session!!

LOOK AT THAT LITTLE FACE!!

Just the girls!! This sweet little baby & I share a name – how cool is that!?

OH MY HEART!! I just LOVE that picture!

You’ll see more of these lovely faces next fall – when I shoot their wedding!!

I had no intention of creating such a moody silhouette – but that’s what happened!! I LOVE IT!!

Another moody silhouette!!

I LOVE extended family sessions!!

THAT HAIR!! OH – she is just so sweet!!

THIS IS US!!

She is SO happy about being an aunt!!

When I grabbed this crib – grandma said – OH!! I have an old quilt – can we use that!? ALWAYS!!

THE SWEETEST!!

I ADORE those last few shots! Jan – Caitlyn – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to photograph your WHOLE family!

I can’t wait to see you all next fall!!

I met Adrianne when I took newborn photos for her – THREE years ago!!

When her little girl came jumping out of the car & running over to the playground – I couldn’t believe it! She’s NOT a baby anymore!

She was VERY concerned about her puppy down in the water!! Those little dimpled chubby fingers – FOREVER my favorite!!

OH MY GOODNESS – THAT SMILE!! This shot – I ADORE THIS ONE!!

She’s a big girl & she can do ALL the things. BY HERSELF.

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!

We took their photos here last year & I just can’t believe how much that little girl has grown up in the past year!!

PERFECTION!!

See – ALL BY HERSELF!!

MY FAVORITE!!!

I’ve got MORE beautiful photos – STAY TUNED!!

I’ve been taking Amanda’s family photos since her little guy was BRAND NEW! Then her sister Angie contacted me when her little guy wasn’t yet one!

THIS year I got to photograph them all TOGETHER!!

GAH!!! I just saw them at the beginning of the summer – she’s changed SO much already!

THE WHOLE FAMILY!!

ADORABLE!!

Last year – this guy wanted NOTHING to do with me!! This year started out the same – but he eventually warmed up!!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!!!

A REAL SMILE!!!

SISTERS!!

I LOVE the blurry grandchild running in the background!!

STAY TUNED!!
