I’ve taken photos for the *K* family for 3 years! So crazy! Their little guy *L* is going to be a big brother in a few weeks!

HONESTLY!

Be still my heart – I ADORE that shot of *L* hugging his baby!

And these – sigh. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

The shot on the right is one of my new favorites!

Lauren – I CANNOT wait to meet your new little one! Thank you SO much for asking me to capture these moments for you!

*L* – NEWBORN

I was SO excited when Arica asked me to capture the first year of their little girl! I had taken photos for their little guy *G* through his first year – and am SO happy to be documenting his sister’s too!

I couldn’t resist adding that one in!

OH MY HEART! She is so beautiful! Don’t get me wrong – I ADORE my boys – but my heart does ache a teeny tiny bit for a pink bundle.

And just like her brother – she was NOT sleeping for me!

But we got adorable photos anyway!

Little *G* – reminds me of Fitzy! He was so excited to take photos with me and be my assistant!

HONESTLY!

Before we know it – she will be 3 months old and appearing on the blog again!

So excited for this blessing in your lives!

I love love LOVE Kelly & Dane! I’ve been taking photos of them for the past 5 years – that’s crazy!

I am SO excited for their sweet boy to come into the world!

Seriously!

I LOVE those shots! Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful moments to capture!

You guys are THE BEST! I cannot WAIT to meet your little guy!

*G* – 9 MONTHS

When I took pictures of Nicole and her family – we were supposed to be focusing on *G* and his 9 month shots! Once I got home – I realized we had about two shots of just him. TWO!

Because Nicole is awesome – she was totally fine with me stopping at her house the next time I was in town – and getting those 9 month shots!

OH MY HEART!

We took the same picture of his older brother at this age – so we HAD to make sure and capture him as a little cupid!

Nicole – thank you – for everything!

*A* TURNS TWO

Missy & Cody are dear friends! I’ve had the great opportunity to capture their growing family for the past few years!

Isn’t he fantastic!

It was a chilly day – but we got some GREAT shots!

He was NOT happy!

OH MY HEART! I love love LOVE that picture on the left!

Thank you guys SO much for braving the cold and for your friendship!

 

*P* FAMILY

Marcia contacted me after I shot a wedding at their church! I was so excited to be able to fit her family in my schedule!

We met on a very chilly day – at my parents – which means – even chillier. 

I LOVE THAT SHOT!

Thank you SO much for asking me to photograph your family! Thank you for praying for my family – it was so sweet of you.

*P* FAMILY – WAITING FOR BABY *L*

I took photos of Alison and her family a few years ago – I think.

Like I said – I lose track of time – but I DO know that her little guys were quite a bit smaller!

I was SO excited when she asked me to capture her pregnancy! Turns out – she’s due the day after us!

Well – she WAS due the day after us! Her session was on October 22nd and her baby girl arrived on the 27th – of October!

I just LOVE the light in those shots!

OH MY WORD! I know – I’ve used this cornfield a lot – but I can’t help myself!

Thank you SO much for asking me to photograph this amazing time in your life!

I LOVE how your session turned out!

And now your baby girl is almost 4 months old! CRAZY!

*M* FAMILY

I’ve been taking photos of Julie and her family for – three years now (I think) – time flies way too fast!

This session is my favorite!

Julie asked for an antiqued version of their family photo – BAM!

OH MY HEART!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

BEAUTIFUL! I adore this spot!

Julie – thank you SO much for having me capture your family year after year!

 

BROTHER & SISTER

Filed under: babes,family,just because,kiddos,love,portraits — Danielle at 7:58 pm on Friday, February 7, 2014

I’ve been a little busy adjusting to life with two – it was a bit intense!

I’m going to try my best to get back to blogging – I have SO much I want to share and get down on “paper” – but I’ll start with some sessions from the fall!

I love love LOVE taking pictures of this family!

OH MY HEART!

OH MY WORD! Those pictures make me laugh SO HARD!

I know that one on the right is a mess – dark – out of focus – but SO beautiful! You can see how much FUN they had in that cornfield!

OH MY WORD! My heart exploded!

Sheri – thank you SO much for having me capture your family! I LOVE our sessions!

BROTHERS

Brothers. I still can’t believe that I have two little boys that are brothers!

Look at that little guy! He’s still a little guy – a month later! Which is weird for me. Fitzy was (and still is) such a big guy.

BE STILL MY HEART! I have a feeling I will be getting a GIANT portrait of that one on the left for our wall!

Fitzy is a FANTASTIC big brother – he’s a fantastic kid! He’s got his moments – we all do. He loves his baby ick (sometimes he calls him baby enny) and always wants to give him a big hug and kiss!

He is such a crazy goofball!

My friend Megan came over and took some newborn photos of our little guy! I had to snap a few shots!

OH – my boys! These brothers. My heart.

It’s been a month – a whole month since Enoch was born. A month of sleepless nights. A month of sweet baby smells. A month of watching him grow. A month of love. All around. I’ve written about the changes in our lives – here and at themarriagefight.com – and I am so excited to tell you that things are going well. Jared is coming back and has been able to enjoy his babies and this time in our lives! I’m not afraid of doing this whole parenting and marriage thing alone. He’s more talkative and involved. It’s a complete answer to prayer.

Our lives have been turned inside out – once again – but I expect this to happen more often than not. While I might not like it every time – I feel better prepared to deal with the changes – the challenges.

Enoch is beautiful and wonderful.

His eyes hold so much character and depth.

We are blessed.
