First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage! I don't think I've ever made these two take a picture kissing in a tree, but I have captured Amy and John in some pretty amazing times in their lives as a couple! However, I think this phase might be my favorite. I cannot wait to see the Crupies as parents but most importantly I can't wait to meet their little girl... and see Bailey as a wonderfully fluffy big sister. Amy and John were troopers for their maternity session - being pregnant in the hot summertime is ROUGH... and there was an important soccer game on that night that John wanted to watch, ha! It is truly an honor to grow along with my couples and it's pretty special to be there for your friends. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
Oh how I love this sweet family. I got to meet Miss Anna when she was just a few days old and her parents were wondering what in the world they had gotten into. Fast forward 2+ years later and Sara and Dustin are pros... which is good because I totally see a lot of Mila in Anna and I am definitely taking notes! Anna is a smart cookie with a huge heart and maybe an even bigger personality. I see so much of Sara and Dustin in her which means she is going to be a light in so many people's lives and she always puts a smile on my face when I get to spend any time with her. Folks always say the days are long but the years are short and boy do I feel this statement when I look at these pictures of Anna. I can't wait to continue watching her spunky self grow up and loving on one of my favorite families. Sara and Dustin - in case you didn't know or doubt yourself on those hard days - you're doing a great job. Also, my bar is stocked for said hard days!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!
The sweet Jones family are now a family of FOUR with TWO boys under TWO! We've celebrated our friends as they got married and ooohed and ahhed when we met adorable Henry and now we get to love on precious Evan. This little nugget is so cute and he slept like a champ for his newborn session, but the way Henry called his baby brother "Evie" was ovary-exploding material. I know it isn't easy with two kiddos much less two under two, but Jordan and Sarah make such a great team and these boys are so lucky to have them as parents. Congratulations again guys!! We love y'all!
It is incredibly humbling to grow with my couples after their wedding day. I am a part of some of the most incredible times in life and it fills my heart to a size I didn't know a "job" could. Ashley and Bryan welcomed sweet David into the world after a miscarriage last year and I think he's just about the cutest rainbow baby I have ever seen AND he slept through his entire session! What's even more special is that this family lives about 10 houses down from us so we will get to watch this cutie grow! This new mom and dad have been anxiously awaiting David's arrival and now that he's here it's hard to imagine them without him; they already make such a great team! Little one you are so blessed already with a village to support you and for parents that will always think you hung the moon. Ashley and Bryan - thank you so much for letting me in on this exciting time. I can't wait for kid date nights and neighborhood walks!
I was there when this cutie's big brother came into the world and I was so thrilled to be there after they grew to a family of four (well really five, can't forget about sweet Luna). It's always an honor to be invited into a family's big milestones but it's so special when they're your friends. Emily and Evan decided to wait to find out if they were having a boy or a girl. My vote was always girl as it seemed to be the year of the girl - almost everyone I knew having a baby was having a girl last year! After Davis was born I remember Emily saying, "I didn't know how much I needed a girl until I had her." It's funny how little girls can just melt your heart! Although I think sweet Will is going to be the best, most protective big brother of little Davis and I cannot wait to watch them grow up together! Foster family - we miss you guys! A playdate needs to get on the calendar ASAP!
