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!!

Jackie & Dane were waiting until THE birthday to find out if their baby was a boy or a girl!

I am very envious of the ability to WAIT!!

She looks JUST like her daddy!!

Last year I photographed Noreen’s wedding. Her best friend messaged me and said – I want to have you stay a little longer at the wedding – so she got Noreen another hour as a wedding gift!

Noreen thanked Jessica with a gift certificate! THE BEST GIFT EVER!! I messaged Jessica to set up her session – but she was really hoping to use it in October – when she was nearing her due date with her little girl! I extended the expiration date a few months and we set a date!

Her boys play football and finding a date that worked for all of us was a little tough – but we found one! And it started to rain!!! NO!!!!!!!!

So – we found a tree and prayed and waited for the rain to stop!

IT DID!!!

I LOVE THAT SQUISHY FACE!!!

ABSOLUTLEY GORGEOUS!!!

BROTHERS!!! Waiting on a baby SISTER!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!!

JESSICA!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for hanging out on a chilly October morning!!! I cannot WAIT to meet your baby girl!!
