Baby Max

I love when I meet people for the first time and feel instantly comfortable. Jess & Erik are those kind of people. I had an awesome time getting to know them a bit, while capturing those first-time-parents glow and their adorable little dude! (Thanks, Jeannine, for introducing us!)

This one has my heart.

There are fewer things in life that carry the same love and amazement as being a mom. It is the most wonderfully terrifying journey I am so blessed to be on, and I am so thankful I get an awesome husband to go through it all with. Our handsome little son, Silas, was born 3 months early, endured surgeries, infections, tears, shots, IV’s and received a whole lot of prayers and love from an overwhelming amount of people. He is my absolute favorite kid on the planet! Even in his little life he has taught me more about patience and grace than I have ever known before. He’s a keeper. :)

Allyson & Jake

Many moons ago I met a girl named Allyson. She was kind of weird, but so was I, so we hit it off as friends. We took mini road trips where she would throw my cd’s out the window, and we would sing at the top of our lungs to 90’s pop music. She has always been one to challenge me to dig deeper, strive for better, and just love life. Although we don’t see each other as much any more, I’m happy to say every time we hang out it seems as though we’ve not missed a beat.

Al, you’re awesome. And I’m so glad I was able to get some photos of you guys today!
