This year I am doing another Adoption Fundraiser for a different friend that is adopting this year. Erin and I met as preschoolers because our brothers were on the same baseball team and have been good friends ever since! We ended up living about an hour away from each other in middle school and high school so we didn’t see each other as much. Then in college Erin started coming to the college group at my church. But the really crazy part about this is that Joshua had also been a good friend of mine through high school and college. It was so fun to see them meet, start dating and fall in love. I love seeing how the Lord works!
They have now started the process for Embryo Adoption. It’s not something I know a lot about but I am super excited to see the process work out. To learn more about Embryo Adoption or hear more of their story check out their blog at https://thisgrandadventurecalledlife.wordpress.com
Not many grants are available for Embryo Adoption so it can be financially challenging. I will be charging a little more than I normally do and donating that to their Adoption. This is a great way to be a blessing to some one else this Christmas season.

I think this session is one of my favorite I’ve ever done. I always love getting to work with my sisters and I couldn’t imagine a more amazing location! When I found this spot I knew that I wanted to do a wanderlust, adventuring type shoot. I’m thankful for sisters who are willing to model on a spur of the moment shoot!
“Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing
Somewhere beyond the sea
She’s there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms
I’d go sailing
It’s far beyond the stars
It’s near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
We’ll meet beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailing”

I babysat weekly both of Tanners older siblings from a very young age, so I’ve loved getting to carry on the tradition with Tanner! He is such a sweet and happy baby. His smile is the most adorable thing! I love you little Tan Man!
Newborn sessions are quickly becoming my favorite! I love being a part of such a special time in a family. It’s such a sweet time of life. I also happen to LOVE babies! Little Lucy was so incredibly sweet! She was a champ and made our session very easy! This first image is one of my favorites I’ve ever taken.
“Today’s extra special
because you turn ONE!
We’ll eat cake and ice cream
and have lots of fun
It seems like just yesterday
you were brand new
and now there are so many things
you can do.
We’ll light your first candle
and make a big fuss
to be sure that you know
you are precious to us.
Today’s extra special
because you turn ONE
and the best thing of all is-
you’re life’s just begun!”
I know it was a few weeks ago, but very Happy Birthday Andrew!
