I ABSOLUTEY LOVE that one!! I would almost put a HUGE canvas of it on my own wall!!

CHILDHOOD PERFECTION!

Daddy changing their outfits – in the room their momma was photographed in before their wedding!!

Those little feet! Seemingly insignificant moments.

I saw this idea from a photographer I follow on IG and just HAD to try it!!

I LOVE THAT ONE!!

I got an email from Erin in June – asking if we could schedule family photos.

I photographed their wedding nearly 11 years ago and this would be the first time seeing them since!

Their little girls were SO excited to see me and talk to me and bring me home for a sleepover!!

I ADORE those shots!

ALWAYS let them be silly. Let them be little!

I’ve got SO MUCH more to show you!

Chubby babies are the BEST babies!! Look at those arm rolls!

I met Courtney & Dave a few years ago – they are friends with Stephanie and loved her photos!

I soon discovered that they were praying for a baby. I put them on my list and have been praying and trusting with them.

I met them at a new creek for their yearly photos last September. A few days – maybe a week – later – she messaged me. GUESS WHAT!?

l cried. They were pregnant. I cried and thanked God.

LOOK AT THOSE SMILES!!

She was the most awake and alert baby I’ve had yet! She is absolutely GORGEOUS!

THOSE SHOTS!!!

OH MY HEART!

Dad holding her little hand – THE SWEETEST!!

I LOVE becoming friends with the people I photograph. I love even more praying for you. Crying with you. Waiting with you. Rejoicing with you.

Stay tuned – because I’ve got more to show you of this sweet girl and her momma and dad!

THIS IS US

I love when the kiddos take to me right away when I’m photographing someone for the first time!
