This session was on the most beautiful fall day. One of those days where you just want to be outside enjoying God’s creation at its best. This family is made up of some of my favorite people on this Earth. Stephanie is such an example of a quiet and strong spirit. Her children absolutely adore her and it showed through the images that I captured. I am so glad that I got the opportunity to once again capture this season in their lives.
Its that time of the year when I get all the beautiful babies in front of my camera surrounded by the beauty of fall. This family is dear to my heart. You pray as a mama that your little ones will find friends that encourage, strengthen, and protect your little ones heart. Sweet Emma does that for my Gracie. Luckily for me her mama is just as sweet. I have had the priviledge of watching Sarah grow closer to God over the last few years. I am encouraged by her commitment to be a Godly wife, mom, and friend. Our session was a favorite of mine.
These sweet babies have a special place in my heart. Their mama has been one of my dearest friends over half my life. She is the most amazing and gracious friend, wife, and mother. She has three under four and does it like no one else I have ever seen. We had a nice warm afternoon and decided to get her little ones in front of the camera.
Being a mother has been one of the greatest adventures of my life. Every season brings its own challenges and joys. They have taught me how to love unconditionally, how to give of myself in ways I never thought possible, how hard I could pray for someones eternal life and mission, and how to love their daddy. Their love for Jesus blows me away. They have an undying love for our Father. I pray for them to stay strong in their faith. The world needs our little ones to spread His love.
This wedding was a dream for me. I have never met a couple that is so intentional about their love and respect for God and each other. My favorite parts of the day was when the two of them were together. Just being together. Aaron and Victoria I wish you two a lifetime of honoring God together. He has big plans for you.
This is one of those sessions that I hold very dear to my heart. Tera has been such a sweet friend to me over the past 4 years that I have known her. She has inspired me with her quiet confidence in life, parenting, and being a wife. I am around her and marvel at her parenting. The way that she allows her kids to be kids. Not trying to control their every action. Our world has told us that as mothers we must have “control” of our kids. I have often wondered what Tera has that I have not gotten yet. Then it occurred to me the other day during their session. She doesn’t parent out of fear. She trusts. She trusts herself but most of all she also trusts God. The truth is these kids of ours are really His anyway. We are just here to love and guide their steps until they are old enough to cultivate their own walk with God. It was such an aha moment for me. God has big plans for this family and so they will be following His plans out west. I will definitely miss our get togethers, our bible studies, our laughs, and all the moments that we shared in between. I will cherish these pictures and pray over them as I see them sitting on my shelf. I pray that all of you have a “Tera” in your life because I am sure thankful for having one.
