I have been WAITING & WAITING for Dave & Courtney’s maternity session!!

Last year we took their yearly photos at a new place – a GORGEOUS creek bed!

Turns out – they were pregnant then and didn’t know it!

I suggested that we go back to that same place to document the “end” of THIS journey since we were there at the “beginning”!

SWOON!!! I LOVE moody black & white baby bellies!!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!!

Stay tuned – because Courtney got IN the water in mid-April!!

You might recognize Kate & Willie – I photographed their wedding a while back!

Kate was a momma on THE LIST – praying & hoping for a baby!!

In early December – their little guy was born! He had a stay in the NICU but is now home with his momma & daddy!

I was SO excited to meet him and get them in front of my camera!!

They assured me that he is typically ALL smiles – but in true fashion – I bring out the serious faces in babies!!

BEAUTIFUL!!

THERE’S A SMILE!!

We even got their puppies in the pictures – check in tomorrow to see those shots!

It’s been a LONG time since I took photos of my kids with my parents!!

BASEBALL in the backyard!!

I can’t deal with how GIANT this guy is! He’s only TEN and he’s THIS tall already!?

Hey Enoch – can you just make a normal face!? No!? Okay – weirdness will do too!

SNOWBALL!!

Time for a bigfoot hunt!!

I need to make sure to bring my camera with me on adventures more often!

You would think that I would be better about getting my own family on the schedule for family photos!!

Thankfully Megan was able to fit us into her schedule in October.

I absolutely LOVE our red Japanese maple trees that line our driveway and I REALLY wanted to have our photos with them this year!!

Fitzy LOVES to read – much like his mom & dad!!

The one who made me a momma on this earth. My beautiful – old-soul boy who is growing into such a unique and thoughtful guy!

This guy – We worked to find a rhythm and a healthy relationship together – and I’m SO happy we put the time and hard work in! Because he is truly a joy!!

BARDEN BROTHERS!! That might be one of my favorite photos of the two of them!

Last year I said that i might not be able to pick him up like this again – but I can. I can’t hold him very long and I’m pretty sure that I won’t be able to do it this fall!!

THOSE LEAVES!!! Aren’t they BEAUTIFUL!?

Jared and I will be married SEVENTEEN years this June – and I can honestly say that I love him more than ever!!

We try every year to get a shot with mom-mom and bacca!

Some updated shots of me – JUST BECAUSE!!

And as I’m sitting here typing this – I am resisting the urge to shave my head again. BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

He loves me so very well!!

Megan – THANK YOU for fitting us into your schedule and giving us memories every year! I love you dear friend!!

Dave’s mom had labeled all the little things that she wrapped up for them! Many of the things were from Dave’s childhood!

#DADLIFE!!!

She really loved all the elephants!!

This wasn’t everybody – but I wanted to grab a quick group shot so Courtney could look back on this moment!!

Courtney & Dave – I am so thankful that our paths crossed & I could pray for you on this journey!!

My heart cannot contain the excitement I have for you all!!
