Lily’s Birth Day!

God has planned all the days of my baby’s life already, including this one.

God hears my silent prayers and cares for my heart.

I choose to rest in the peace that surpasses understanding.

God has given me all the strength I need for this moment.

I trust the Lord, who made my body to do this.

Jesus is always with me.

I give birth in safety, held by the Lord.

God has perfectly prepared this day for my baby’s birth.

The Lord strengthens me through every breath.

Jesus understands all my thoughts and feelings.

Bella | Senior Session Class of 2020

Bella has fun being in front of a camera & so this session with her was super easy breezy & creative! Bella totally brought her own style & self to this session on a chilly Saturday morning this past fall. Her first “look” very much mirrored Audrey Hepburn complete with a photo we took (it’s in this post so look for it!) that gave a heartfelt nod to Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Everything about the first half of Bella’s session screamed STYLE & the second half screamed FUN! Some of my personal favorites include this first one with the blue door (If you’ve followed me for long, you may have noticed that I have a thing for photographing in front of blue doors 😉 ) & all the black & white’s!!!

CONGRATULATIONS BELLA! I know this end of the year is probably not looking like anything your heart dreamed & imagined but if there’s one thing I learned about you from our time together is that you’ll make do with what you have with a smile! All the best to you Bella for your future!

Will | Senior Session Class of 2020

I hope he won’t mind me saying this, but Will is a super sweet guy 😉 I first Will & his family several years ago when they had just purchased a new home & Leah Bond connected us! My guess is that was about 4-5 years ago so Will probably was in Jr High or just about to start high school. Anyway, my point is, I’ve gotten to watch him grow into a kind young man through the years. I’ve seen him & his family at several photo sessions since that first one & I was THRILLED when his mom, Karen, asked me to do his senior pictures. I also about cried when I suggested a historic neighborhood as our location & Karen told me that Will’s dad’s childhood home was in that same neighborhood! So OF COURSE we had to get a few pictures of Will in front of it!

I love all these pictures & I love how real & totally himself Will was in all of these. He’s a handsome young man & I’m hoping for the very best for him- pandemic or no pandemic! You’ve got this Will!!!!!!
