{we gained an angel}

We will miss her terribly.

{we will miss her}

Most of you have heard that we lost our Nanny on my husband's side. She fought long and hard, but I have a feeling she was just too tired to keep fighting. She was so special to us all. We'll always cherish her love, her tight hugs and her sweet smile.

We head for South Florida early in the morning. For those of you with recent orders, anticipated galleries, or unanswered emails - I will complete that work just as soon as I can.

{trudy + bo}

I had a great time with this couple today... so sweet and fun! They were up for anything. They claimed they weren't photogenic... I think everyone will disagree! :)

Trudy & Bo- I hope you enjoy your preview.. more coming soon.

{welcome tucker}

This preview is from a birth I shot last week.

When my good friend, Jen, asked me last year if I'd photograph the birth of her second child I was so excited - (and honored)! I love the emotion that comes with the birth of a child and being able to caputure that is something that I love.

I met Jen and Travis at the hospital last Wednesday morning.. along with other family members. The entire way to the hospital, as I fought the traffic, I prayed for Jen and her little family. It brought back so many memories of the morning Bradley and I were heading to the hospital to become a family of four. Just a short 16 months ago I might add. I found myself with butterflies as I remembered that day. It was so exciting - I knew that by the afternoon Jen would be feeling all of that same excitement and joy.

As soon as things got going, they went pretty fast. Jen was a great sport and didn't have any of those "mean" moments she warned me may come (hey- sometimes that's just a part of child birth!)... I snapped away all morning long and just before lunch it was "time". My heart started racing for Jen. Her sweet baby arrived quickly! As I watched his arrival behind my camera, I felt the tears streaming down my face. God is so good. Jen and Travis are now the parents of two handsome little boys!

Jen- Thank you again for allowing me to be with you during this special day and for your sweet friendship. You have many fun filled days ahead of you- I know that you'll treasure each and every one of them.
