JUST MARRIED!!

This picture – I cried. The moments between a mother and her son on his wedding day – they’re like looking into my future.

And I hope his bride greets us with a smile like that and he hugs me so hard his nose smooshes into my shoulder.

THREE GENERATIONS!!

That little guy – so adorable!!

That dear sweet puppy!! And their smiles!!

Right about now the rain started – just lightly – just in time for a few picture of Jeremiah & Victoria – NEWLY MARRIED!!

I met with Victoria and her mom earlier this year about her wedding – in May!! It seemed like there was so much time till the end of May – but it snuck up like time does!

This little sweetie – she was SO MUCH FUN! And made for some great shots!

She asked – can I get my pretty dress on now!? What about now!? Maybe now!?

THE BEST COWBOY BOOTS EVER!!

What about now!? Can I put my pretty dress on NOW!?

How often do you handwrite your love!? How often do you put letters to paper to say thank you!?

Victoria gave her mom this letter – handwritten – and she will always have this to open and read.

To remember how loved she is. And how much she love she poured (and continues to pour) into her beautiful daughter.

THE VOWS!!

Can I put my pretty dress on NOW!?

I took SO many photos – as usual – so you’ll have LOTS of blog posts to look forward to!!

WAITING ON BABY

WELCOMING BABY GRACE

Missy was able to rest (as best as you can while in labor) for a small chunk of the evening into the early morning.

Cody, Missy’s mom, and I were able to drift on and off in the hospital chairs as best as you can imagine …

But then it started!

And she says baby … it’s 3 AM and I don’t want to push out this baby!

December 27th – 3 AM – let’s start pushing. I say us like it’s a group effort!

So tired – so very very tired – and so close to meeting her little girl – but it still seems so far!

There’s not much I feel like I can do to help. She’s going to be in pain no matter what. That pain WILL end.

BUT until then – I CAN get cold washcloths!

And it REALLY starts!

These photos – this part was hard for me.

I don’t have much sympathy and empathy in general – but watching my dearest friend be so close to meeting her daughter and feeling the contraction come and knowing that she has to push but doesn’t really want to … ooooh – that was hard to watch!!

AND THERE SHE IS!!!

AND I very seriously got so wrapped up in the emotion of the moment – that I forgot I was taking pictures!

The focus isn’t where I would love for it to be – but I think you can still feel the emotion in this moment!! In fact – I KNOW you can!

OH MY HEART!!! She’s here – after 2 hours & 18 minutes of pushing – about 33 hours of labor all together – and 9 years (yes – years) of waiting for this little girl – SHE IS HERE!!

That tiny tear – that FRESH baby – that beautiful MIRACLE!!
