Lacie Claire couldn't have been more perfect rocking this sunhat!
It was such a treat for me to experience the sweet spirit and camaraderie of this family.
Sophia's first birthday session!
I have so many sessions that I haven't shared on Facebook or the blog because the images were intended primarily for Christmas cards or Christmas gifts. But Christmas has long since past, so now I can! This crew had planned a session and their family photographer had a sudden death in the family. Fortunately, they had planned to do it on a Sunday morning when I don't normally take sessions so I was able to fill in and we were able to beat (most) of the rain... and I even made it to Sunday School!
This first image was the winner for the front of the card!
And then on the back we picked one image each to showcase the personality of each grandchild!
As you can see, they all loved the camera!
Mama with her girls -
And there is almost nothing I love better than capturing sweet sister-love!
This littlest guy sure did remind me of his grandfather!
Debra and Sydney, you have a beautiful family. It was my pleasure to be able to capture these images for you!
I met Phoebe's mom several years ago when my own girls were small and were in activities with Phoebe's big sister, Jozie! They are such a sweet family.
I had to steal this from Rebecca's (mom's) Facebook page because it really struck me that if Phoebe lives up to the commentary used here, she would be an awful lot like her mom and grandmother!
In case you were wondering, Phoebe's name was not inspired by the show "Friends", rather it is a woman I greatly admire from the bible. In Romans 16:1 Paul sings her praises as a "‘deaconess of the Church which is at Cenchrea’; one commentator says about her that "in that capacity, by gentle ministrations and the exhibition of purity and patient love, as well as by the gracious administration of material help, (Phoebe)had been a ‘succourer of many.’ There is a whole world of unmentioned kindnesses and a life of self-devotion hidden away under these few words."
In my mind, Phoebe is synonymous with Godly service. It is a name to live into.
She certainly has good role models to look towards that demonstrate this Godly service and kindness!
The dress that Phoebe is pictured in above is a dress her mom actually wore as an infant! I think that is so special!
It was so nice to meet you, Phoebe Hope!
