"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully," Romans 12:6-8

Baby Haley

I am blessed. I am so very, very blessed. Photography has brought so many amazing people into my life, each who have taught me something new. I don’t think its any secret that I LOVE newborns! Their smell, their wrinkly little toes, their puckered lips, and even their cries---they all just touch my heart in ways that no one else can. God’s creation is amazing; every person is made unique, made special and are loved so deeply by Him. New life reminds me of that, and its powerful. Today I met little Haley for the first time. Her parents and I took maternity pictures back in December, and when Kim asked if I would take Haley’s newborn pictures--- I was over the moon. This morning, Haley surpassed all my expectations and excitement. She was awake and alert throughout the whole session, and it was so very special to see Kim interact with her daughter. Haley, welcome to the world--- you are someone very special--- may your life be full of blessings.

Baby Josephine

I have been loving all the newborn shoots lately, and the many announcements of newborns to come! It’s a good thing our little one is coming in August, or this would not be at all helping the severe case of “baby fever” I had over the last few months. A few weeks ago, the world was blessed by the addition of Baby Josephine. Adam and Ashlie are friends of my parents, and when my mom asked if I would take pictures of their little one--- I was so excited! When I walked in the door to the mix of Christian, easy listening and I think quite possibly some 70’s music that was playing in the background, I knew this family had to be special. The love that filled their home and surrounded little Josephine was so much fun to witness and a blessing to capture through photography. Thank you for welcoming me into your home, you have a wonderful family and I pray God fills this new chapter of your life with many blessings.

Baby T newborn session

First of all, Happy 2012. Today I was privilege to start the new year with a photo session of new life. Baby T entered the world last week and she is precious. Her big sister is welcoming her with lots of kisses and open arms ready to hold her. This family is so full of love. Baby T and her big sister are treasured, nurtured, cared for and loved. I am so blessed to have worked with this family in the past and know that this will not be the last time you see them featured on here. Miller family, thank you for allowing me the privilege of capturing special times in your lives. You are a great family and I pray that your 2012 is filled with love, laughter, memories and blessings. Enjoy the preview from our time today.
