Blessings abound. I am getting a new sister! These two hold such a special place in my heart for so many reasons and I can’t wait to officially call Emily my sister.
Adam and Emily share such a fun kind of love. They each bring their uniqueness to the relationship complimenting one another perfectly. As a family we have watched them grow together and it has been wonderful. They make each other laugh, they harass one another (a requirement in our family), and they love each other wholly. These two share a wide variety of exciting activities together from hiking, backpacking, to entertaining their great selection of friends for crazy game nights; they are forever busy and creating new memories. Both settled into great occupations and a beautiful home we can’t wait to watch the next stage of their adventure together.
For my husband and I there are some additional blessings that these two have given us. Our daughter has spent the last year living with them while she is attending college. They have given a gift to all of us that is unrepayable other than to say a 1,000 thank yous. They have given us the rare opportunity to have her grow at this stage of life with great examples while giving her the space to explore as an adult, something that is often difficult for us parents to do. They have taught her about love and relationships beyond just what she has witnessed in our home. They have given her the right balance of freedom and responsibility to continue her adventure into adulthood; for that we are forever grateful.
We are so ready to watch these two “make it official” but have always known that Emily was already ours to love. See you soon! Love you both!
When Hannah contacted me to discuss her upcoming birth and newborn pictures I had already decided I wouldn’t be photographing anymore births; well as you can see by these images I caved. Hannah and I hit it off right away and spent our coffee date discussing photography with a little of everything else. I am always so amazed and blessed by the many people that this business has brought to my life. There was some worry that dad might not be local when it was birth time so how could I not be there to capture this amazing time for this wonderful growing family.
This particular birth story started in an operating room instead of the delivery room but what an awesome opportunity for a photographer to be invited into the OR. I walked in the room as momma was walking away to the OR to meet dad for the first time. We became fast friends as we were about to experience the amazing arrival of their baby girl. In true southern girl fashion Hannah wanted her hair to be perfect for pictures so her anesthesiologist made sure to fix her hair for the camera 🙂
I was able to spend a few minutes after baby S arrived with the family, capturing their first moments as three and what a pleasure to watch two people fall in love with their new baby girl and each other all over again.
On day 4 I got to spend the day with baby S, her momma, and grandma capturing some great images for her newborn session. We used elements of her daddy’s career, family jewelry and other great colors, fabrics and textures to create a series of images that I know they will cherish forever.
Thank you Key family for allowing me to be a part of our family’s story. I’m so excited for October and apparently for Baby S’s prom 😉
