Last week I traveled to Minnesota to shoot a wedding and I got to sneak in a newborn session with baby Jacob!  What made this shoot extra special is that my mom was there to assist with baby placement and make amazing suggestions for backdrops and props.  When you mix the help of my mom, all the silly facial expressions of this small human and my dad's amazingly green lawn it makes for a perfect summer newborn session in Minnesota! 


A new life is ONE. INCREDIBLE. MIRACLE....But TWO new lives? It's pretty unbelievable.  Wrapping your head around how carefully each one of those tiny humans was thoughtfully and maticulously crafted in their sweet mommy's body is unfathomable...twenty teeny toes, two little noses, two sets of precious lips, twenty fragile fingers. All these things can only point to a greater, Heavenly Father who created them perfectly and wonderfully! Photos just don't do justice to their size, beauty and preciousness. I (almost) have baby fever! Congrats to our dear friends, Eric & Kasey.  You made cute kids! Thanks for letting Zac and I sneak a peek at your neat family of four (well six-- Can't leave Toby Washington and Henry Theodore out)! xxoo


We celebrated a 1st birthday at the beginning of the month! We love our neighbors' little one. She was born on Cinco De Mayo so as you can image her one year of life has been quite a party! She's as sweet as can be, always smiley, cuddly and not to mention polite and OH SO smart! It was fun to see her dive into her smash cake, just her size.  It's almost as if she knew what to do! Love you sweet baby E! 

P.S. Check out her mom's blog... www.girlrepurposed.com!  She's a dear friend and a phenomenal writer!
