it’s about time i started sharing some photos
that i took of some of the special people in our lives!

we’ve known this family for years and years
and they are such an encouragement to me.
(here are their photos from last year.)

The eyes of all look to you,

and you give them their food in due season.

Psalm 145:15

3556. B making the kids dinner
3557. a wonderfully cozy day at home
3558. naps in the afternoon
3559. seeing all that was done
3560. the power coming back on


i just adore taking photos of special needs kids
and i really really love taking photos of
special needs kids still in the womb.




“Surely, as I have planned, so it will be,
and as I have purposed, so it will happen.”
Isaiah 14:24

3451. fresh pink nails on a little girl
3452. joy from balloons
3453. lemonade in the afternoon

3455. his legs in the air


i just love this family
and am so grateful that i get to see them
so many times each year,
to watch them grow
and hear about all of their good ideas
and witness their utter and complete obsession with super heroes.

and to top all of that off,
we got to go on a spontaneous train ride!

and call on me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you, and you will honor me.
Psalm 50:15

3331. just hopping on the train
3332. getting a ride back to my car
3333. “help” taking photos
3334. light that just beams
3335. how she doesn’t mind that i take her picture


my favorite,
lens broke.
which breaks my heart.
i’ve had it on my camera,
for nearly five years.



so after i grieved for a bit
i decided to get a new lens.
a different lens.
and i’m both terrified and thrilled
(which seems to be a theme in my life right now).
it will be on my camera soon.
and i think it’s quite symbolic
for where i am in life right now.



“Come now, let us settle the matter,”
says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.”
Isaiah 1:18


3321. a red box
3322. more books and less toys
3323. K’s desire to help
3324. everything at once
3325. the dearest community group


this is my sweet friend.
isn’t she adorable?
well, she is inside and out.

i am so grateful to have her in my life
as we both walk down this
typical and special needs journey.

she let me take photos of her
right before she had her fourth baby.
can you believe it?
yeah, neither can i.




Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters,
stand firm. Let nothing move you.
Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord,
because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

i have known this girl for years
and i was so thrilled
(i mean so completely thrilled)
that she would ask me
to take some maternity photos for her.

Sarah is a photographer
(apple rose photography)
and let me tell you,
this girl knows how to pose.
and her daughter and husband?
they were naturals, too.


And now, dear children,
continue in him,
so that when he appears
we may be confident and
unashamed before him
at his coming.

by which we draw near to God.
