my heart bursts….

when I look at the images I’m going to share today. For so many reasons….

*the children are beautiful

*their parents love them so unconditionally

*the story of their becoming a family makes my heart ache in a good way

*this is the first session with my new camera and I love that!

*God’s hand in this is undeniable

*I love this little growing family so much

My friend Becca has the most kind, giving heart. She doesn’t complain, even though she has had to deal with some of the toughest situations a person could face. She also has some of the best things in life…a loving husband, these 4 little miracles and tight extended family and many, many friends, a strong faith (Kelly, Becca and I shared a very scary experience flying back from Orlando last summer and we all responded in the same way….praying rather than cussing!) and a wonderful homelife. I’m so thankful that God is blessing her for her continued faithfulness. She could have become bitter or cynical…but she hasn’t, her positive energy fills a room.Β She inspires me daily.

Recently 5 day old Baby S joined their family. He is beyond gorgeous.




img_0201-web I cry every time I look at this image of Becca and Baby S.


img_0233-web Beautiful E.

The boys hadn’t had their hair done yet, but I couldn’t resist snapping a couple while we were waiting for Baby S.

img_0091-web Aren’t C’s eyes unbelievable? They grab me every time.

img_0098-web Seeing N so happy makes me happy.

img_0278-web The beautiful dough bowl is borrowed from Dimestore Days. I told you they are awesome, letting me borrow amazing props.



img_0294-web At first I didn’t notice N touching Baby’s hand…how sweet is that?


img_0314-web This one makes me laugh. He’s in there!


img_0333-web Love this family. Praying that their future holds years of joy and peace.

Could you do me a huge favor? Could you let me know if you see a significant difference with the new camera? Thanks so much. I think I do….but I may not be super objective given the nature of my connection to the above subjects.

Tom and I are looking forward to dinner tonight with Donna and Jamie. After the craziness of their son’s wedding, we are all ready for some downtime and a lot of laughs together.

Have a great weekend!

God bless!

Kelly - Such happy happy pictures! πŸ™‚
LOVE them all.
And yes, I see a big difference and not just because I know that you got a new camera. YAY! πŸ™‚
Have a great weekend…

jody ferlaak - A-mazing! I still can’t believe that all that has transpired for Becca and I keep thinking of her and praying for her. Going from 1 to 2 is a challenge, 2 to 3, and 3 to 4. But all at once!! I know she is blessed and loving every minute, but she still needs our prayers! =)
I was thinking about all she has been through and marking my own loss of Teagan today just affirms my faith that much more. It’s so hard to trudge through and hang on when you’re walking the dark valley path, but then God has a way of bursting forth His light- sometimes in small clearings along the way, other times He just blows me away with His majesty! My heart aches for the way He leads some of us at times, but also rests in knowing that He has it all under control.
I’m sure there were times Becca couldn’t imagine photos and blessings like the ones you captured here, but it’s real now and makes it that much more incredible.
I love that God keeps redeeming, restoring and renewing the Hope of those who simply trust in Him.
Thanks so much for your friendship to Becca too. I only wish I were closer to all of YOU!
And by the way… You’re welcome to fly up and take newborn shots of our next one whenever that day comes. Soon!!
Have a great weekend and tell Brooke thanks for her prayers for my family the past couple of days too. I appreciate each and every one!
