The Wait

I have waited for this little precious girl to be born for 13 years.  I can clearly remember her mommy, then single, telling me how she felt the greatest calling on her life was to be a mommy. If the 13 years wasn’t a long enough wait, this baby girl decided to also be 10 days late.  Each day for the last month of the pregnancy I was on pins and needles anxious for “the call”  She even had us all waiting during delivery taking her own time.  I then had to wait a whole 10 days before I got my hands on her.  She though, without a doubt was worth the wait and a gift from God.  I know there were many moments in the last 13 years that her mommy wonder if that calling would ever come to reality.  I can clearly remembering praying for and with my best friend that God would guide and direct her, even with this huge longing.  I know for Anna holding her daughter is a fulfillment of her heart’s cry.    Oh precious Ryn, you were are a fulfillment of a dream God whispered to your mommy since she was a little girl.  To hold you, love you and photograph you was nothing short of joy.





























Near and Dear to My Heart

I have looked forward to photographing Anna’s engagement session for many, many years.  She has patiently waited, earnestly prayed and quietly sought the person God had intended for her.  As Anna’s best friend I did much of the same, you see Anna is one of the dearest people in my life for a thousand different reasons and not just any man would do.  She is seriously one of the best people God has designed and the person that got to spend the rest of their life with her had to be something pretty amazing.  Through a wonderful love story Eric came to be that man.  I think what I like best about him is that he realizes the prize he has won when he ask for Anna’s hand and is thankful to God for the gift of her.  What more could a best friend ask for?
