Aww, Emberlyn Rae. . .I seriously can’t get enough of you!! I’ve seen a lot happen in your Mommy and Daddy’s life - all the good things before your sweet face arrived. Their fun engagement, their gorgeous wedding day, I got to photograph them while you were in your mommy’s belly. When you were just a few days old, I got to hold you and document how tiny you were. And now, here you are! It seems like I blinked and you are a year old, eating a cupcake, just like I want to eat a cupcake!!! You are so precious doll!!

Happy One Year of Life Emberlyn!!!

 
 

Rocco Koi is TWO! | Social Circle, Ga. Photography Session

He totally melts my heart! Our sweet Rocco Koi is two years old! He isn’t just a ham, he’s so funny too! This past year has flown by with him. He’s grown beyond belief - now wearing a 3T, he towers over all the kids his age. lol When I ask him to smile he gives the hardest, cheesiest, eyes pinched shut, smile you’ve ever seen! It’s the best thing ever!!

He has started potty training and when WE are consistent he does really well. He talks ALL the time when we hide his paci. He calls his sisters RyRy and Liby - it’s the cutest thing! He’s starting to put sentences together. My fave so far is “I love mommy and gaggy!” Oh, and he said, “I love Gegus” (Jesus) the other day and I about fell to the floor - not even kidding, it was so sweet and beautiful! When he sees a baby, he says, “Baby?!” He loves them so much.

When people first meet him they usually say, “Aw, hey sweet girl!” or “your daughter is so beautiful!” It’s okay!! I’m used to it and it doesn’t bother me at all. The hair ain’t going anywhere YET!

This past week has been different for him because his sisters are now back in school. He keeps asking, “RyRy, Liby, sleep? RyRy, Liby home?” He loves them so much! And while I miss his sisters SO very much while they are at school, I’m thankful for the extra time I get to spend with just he and I.

Happy belated birthday Rocco Koi!

 
 

Norah's ONE | Social Circle, Ga. Family Session

She is pure SUNSHINE!! And such a joy! We celebrated Norah with a fun cake smash and she loved it. Her big brother even joined in! I know that my clients need me for documenting these amazing times in their life but I don’t think they realize how much I need and enjoy them too!

Seeing Norah thriving, she’s standing and so ready to walk soon, is such a blessing and a testament that we serve such a good God! Norah was born premature and lived in the NICU the first weeks of her life. Now, seeing her, you would never guess that she had such a fight for her life.

Norah, you are strong, you are beautiful and you are a child of a mighty God! I can’t wait to see where he leads you doll!!

Marlow Family | Monroe, Ga.

A couple of weeks ago, I met the Marlow family in Monroe, Ga. for their session. So many gorgeous spaces at Melissa’s mom’s farm! Her momma runs an amazing program for children with special needs. It’s called Your Angel Wings Recreational Horse Therapy. Melissa is the momma to a special needs child. She’s very proactive and has become involved in a new ministry at her new church home. I asked her is she would like to share anything incase there are other family’s looking for support. Y’all, isn’t community everything!

Melissa says, “Two years ago after learning firsthand what it means to not have a church home and family, my husband and I have had the privilege of working with Victory Baptist Church in Loganville, Georgia to create what we call the Embracing Needs Ministry. This ministry is to walk alongside and minister to families with special needs children, support and care for foster families and share our time and love with local nursing homes. We also enjoy partnering with Your Angels Wings Recreational Horse Therapy to visit and bring miniature horses to the children’s hospitals in our area.

Our newest adventure is building our own farm! We are working towards cultivating a more simple life for our family. We are almost finished with the building of our home and are making plans on how to harvest our dreams!”

What a blessing this family is!! I just love how big her serving heart is! Click on the link if you would like more information about Your Angel Wings Recreational Horse Therapy . And for more information about the ministry that Melissa and her family started, click here Embracing Needs Ministry.

Wilcox Family | Spring Mini Session

Hello there, Wilcox family!! Jeremy, Cailey and Brooklyn were my neighbors until just last year when they moved into their dream home! I’ve been photographing their family through so many big moments and what a pleasure it’s been watching Brooklyn grow up!

As you scroll through their family’s session, you will see their doll Brooklyn is just loaded with personality!! She had us all on our toes AND cracking up too!! I love it! Never a dull moment and it made my day!

As I was going through and editing their session, I couldn’t help but send Cailey the photo of her and Jermey, posed so beautifully and looking at one another so lovingly - with Brooklyn in the back ground about to chunk a stick at her parents! I seriously couldn’t stop laughing!! I hope that one get’s framed!! lol

Thank you so much Jeremy, Cailey and Brooklyn for allowing me document these priceless times in your family’s life!!
