for john + ingrid,
the journey towards parenthood has not been an easy one.
they have experienced much tragedy along the way,
so it was with both great celebration and tender remembrance
that we approached this session.
sweet baby jack will be here soon,
and the joy this lovely couple has for their son was contagious.
i found myself overwhelmed with emotion throughout our time together.
ingrid… you truly glow with the joy of this pregnancy.
the love you and john have for one another is so evident.
god couldn’t have chosen better parents for little jack.
and i know that he has great plans for your amazing family.

to celebrate father’s day this year,
i did a quick little ‘superhero’ session with my kiddos.
we walked to the park down the street
and they showed me their best superhero moves.
we think their daddy is pretty super,
and he’s definitely our hero!
 we think hes super....

i love newborns.
and i love my newborn sessions with the bows and little beds and all the perfect cuteness.
newborn sessions are so much fun.
but there is something extra special about hospital sessions.
seeing a family with their brand new addition.
watching them all interact.
get to know one another.
it is a very intimate, personal moment.
i always feel so honored to get to capture that.
this hospital session was extra special
as it was with some of my very favorite people.
little hannah adeline-
you are so loved, sweet girl.
and you have no idea how blessed you are that god chose this family for you.

 if children are anything like their parents,
then this little boy is going to be extraordinary.
daddy plays volleyball for the us national team,
and mommy ran 1800 miles while she was pregnant with this little guy!
(that is not a typo!  1800 miles.  i could barely walk around the block when i was pregnant!)
cohen will also be quite the world traveler,
living in different countries while his daddy plays volleyball.
i think he’s already been to more countries (in his mommy’s tummy) than i have icon smile cohen michael :: five days old
mommy + i had lots of fun coming up with fun ways
to capture the uniqueness of this family’s life.
little cohen.
you are a precious, beautiful gift to your family.
i can’t wait to see where your life takes you!
