I guess better late than never is true. I had hoped to have Phil and Jill’s images up last week, but with the Thanksgiving holiday and some sicknesses around the house I got a little bogged down. The past few months have been crazy for a whole host of reasons, but things should be slowing down soon and I’ll have more time to relax and update you with posts.

In the meantime, sit back and enjoy this beautiful couple. I’m not sure how you would say we are related, but Phil is kinda of like an almost brother -in- law? His sister is married to my brother, but our families also get together throughout the year to celebrate some holidays and have lots of fun. The night before Phil popped the question to Jill I actually had a dream that he had proposed and asked my sis-in-law that day if it was true…she called me back hours later to tell me it was. Maybe I’m in the wrong line of work…j/k. This was the first time I met Jill and we had a great time together. Phil, what a catch! and Jill is just a natural at style, and smiling, and being naturally beautiful  in front of the camera, so you two made my job easy. Can’t wait to see how the Lord is going to work in your lives over the next years. Welcome to the family Jill!

Earlier this fall, I headed out with Emily and her parents to capture some photographs for her Senior portraits. I was a little nervous as the day went on due to a chance of rain, but we lucked out and even got some shots with warm, fall sunlight just before dusk. Hopefully you can’t even tell we had to dodge three other photographers   and two wedding parties at the same time. Emily was a natural in front of the camera and you can see joy in her smile. Emily, thanks for giving me this opportunity and allowing me to share in your fun and excitement for life. Your beauty shines from the inside out.

I’m not even sure how to begin this post other then by proclaiming how wonderful this family is. And if you happen to have been blessed with the chance of knowing them or meeting them, I’m sure you will agree. These beautiful children just so happen to be our neighbors. We couldn’t ask for any better! We have loved you since we’ve moved in almost 3 and a half years ago now and hope to spend many more years next to you…I guess it all depends on who outgrows their home first…I think you are a head of us by4? No, 5.

I can’t finish the post without sharing a little bit more about this sweet family. You see for the past 7 or so years they have only had girls…until that precious, little man with the beaming-smile-in-every-picture, came along. This past Spring, N. joined the family through a long, but fruitful adoption process and he is none other then a match made in heaven, for real. It is like he has always been part of the family. I’m so privileged to watch your family grow, love, and serve. I wish these photos could do your awesomeness more justice. Happy viewing…and if you don’t know this family, be jealous now.

Who’s graduating from high school?…This girl….Who’s going off to college?…this girl….Who is beautiful?….This Girl.

Let me start off by saying that Sarah made my job easy. I messaged her just after the shoot to tell her how much she rocked it and I was so excited to go through the photos. One of my first sessions after returning from maternity leave, Sarah and I headed out one fall afternoon to Pennypack so we could grab her senior portraits. I’ve been waiting to share these for a few different reasons 1. Being I have been super crazy busy and sometimes and surprised I have time to do anything and 2. Because Sarah just graduated this past weekend.  What better time to showcase these photos then now.

Sarah is one of those sweet girls that also has some sass when she needs it and I just love her to death. She’s  hard working, has a giving, heart, and loves to laugh. Sarah I’m so proud of the beautiful women you’ve become—and now I feel old since you are graduating. You are going to love college and I cannot wait to see how the Lord works in your life these next years.

There are few things more precious, in my opinion, then the birth of a new baby; a little life that was crafted and created in God’s image for his delight and glory.  On March 5th, our family was graciously blessed with such a gift when Davis William was born. I’ll also warn you now that this post is a little more personal than usual. Near the end of my pregnancy in July, we got the news that my brother Clinton & his wife Laura were expecting as well.  How fast time flies. We were even more excited to learn that Laura was having a boy; the perfect playmate for Levi. What joy to share the ups and downs of parenthood together.

Now to the personal part;

Clinton & Laura, you are truly godly parents. I’m so blessed to have you as siblings, to be encouraged and challenged. It brings me such joy to watch you with Davis, how you care for him and love him. May  you truly grasp what God’s grace is through your son…I’m sure at some point you’ll definitely need it. He is a gift to be treasured.

And sweet Davis, your aunt loves you dearly. I’m so excited to see the little boy and man you become. I pray that you will grow big and strong in stature, that you will love the Lord with all your heart, soul, and mind, and… that you would be kind to your cousin Levi. Know how loved and special you are.

“But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. ” – Psalm 3:3


Beautiful Momma

Davis and his Great Grandfather

So Snuggly.

Davis could you share some hair with Levi?

I think he’s had enough.

And the cousins to close.
