The Barringer Family

Big brother has a love for science and an extraordinary imagination. Little sister has a mind of her own and a head full of curls. Both are smart and silly and prone to giggles. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know this family for over five years. They have shown me what it looks like to be good neighbors and they have become good friends. So thankful for you Barringer fam!

The Harrison Family

The Harrisons are preparing to make a big move back to their home state of Iowa. But before they go, they wanted to get some family pictures in the only town their daughters have ever called home. It was special to capture these photos for them as they prepare to say good-bye to the Queen City.

Dree

If you know the Fritz family, you know what a gift they are. While their story is turning out differently than they ever thought it would, they are navigating the journey with grace and joy. To know this family is to love this family. I have been encouraged and inspired by their trust in God as they have grown their family through adoption. Baby Dree’s arrival in early August brings the headcount to five, with the girls outnumbering the boys. What a beautiful group!

Edie

To be invited into a home where there’s a new baby is to tread on sacred ground. I’m grateful to the families who invite me in and trust me to capture their little ones.

These precious friends of mine have a precious addition to their family. Welcome Edie!

Isaiah

Being brave with our stories invites others to share their stories too. These friends have been brave with their story of infertility and loss. They have wrestled with all the questions that come from the wait. But only God knows why we are made to wait. And only He knows who we are waiting for. It turns out that Mike and Lois were waiting for Isaiah. The call came, they said yes, and now they are all home. Welcome Isaiah!

Asher

So much of the heartbreak in my story can also be found in theirs. It’s one of the reasons I feel such an affection for them. Our friendship is new but feels seasoned. And receiving the news that they were headed to meet their son made my heart explode. Welcome home Asher. We’re so thrilled to have you here!
