Happy Valentine’s, Baby! {a love-inspired session!}

1 John 3:1  See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.”

 So normally I wouldn’t post a gushy, thoughtful Valentine’s Day post, but the more I thought about today, the more I realized this was the perfect opportunity to share the King’s birth session. : )

The King Family is just one of those families that you know you’ll have in your life for a while. They always offer such incredible encouragement, support, and opportunities for me to grow as a photographer, and I couldn’t be more grateful for them! So, naturally, when they asked me if I would be present for the birth of their daughter Joanna back in December, I jumped at the chance. Cute baby, sweet family, AND pictures? Well yes, of course. : ) They came to my mind today when I realized all the firsts you go through as a parent. For days when you can just sit back and be thankful for the gift of family–of children–of love. What a sweet, sweet reminder that we tread holy ground surrounded by children of the divine Creator. Today–and every day–is an opportunity to practice compassion, gratitude, and the greatest gift we’ve been given–the love of a Father for His children. I pray today that you are surrounded by people that love you well with the Kingdom’s sincere love. May you be blessed!

Love, -C

Mansfield Maternity Session: Jacqueline and Jonathan {front porch-inspired!}

Happy Tuesday! I couldn’t think of a more appropriate day to post this session than the official full-term date for Jacqueline. Congratulations to such a precious family! Jacqueline and Jonathan are probably one of the funniest, goofiest, and sweetest couples I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. They came to me several months ago to arrange a maternity shoot and I’ve gotten to sit down with them over coffee, visit their beautiful home in Mansfield, and check out some of the places they do ministry.

J & J are both pastors for TWO churches a piece, (that’s FOUR churches total…wowza!) and they wanted the church setting to be a special part of their shoot. So, we checked out all the locations and found some awesome places that mean a lot to them. I also did a new activity with them where I had them write out some of the prayers they have for their little girl. (You’ll notice that page featured in one of the pictures.) I hope you enjoy their super-sweet front porch shoot!

And CONGRATULATIONS, King family, can’t wait to meet your precious little girl!
