How do you put into words what it feels like to hold the most precious human to someone else? Five pounds fifteen ounces of hopes, dreams, promises fulfilled, grace, love…
She remained curled up, barely reaching the end of my forearm when I held her. Every single breath she took was calm and at peace. She looked at me with wise eyes and I took in every detail, as I know her mama does, memorizing each feature. 
The world was quiet and all of creation stood still- for only weighing five pounds, there was a weight on my heart and soul in that moment. I held her tiny body in my arms, and looked around. Her nursery is so bright; filled with tokens from people who have prayed for her and loved her along this journey. New babies remind me of the goodness in people, our love for one another and our eagerness to embrace love, growth and change. Every moment brought the Crocker family to this little life. She’s here, she’s safe, she’s loved. 

Jeremiah, your name means exalted of the Lord. 
I think we know what is at the end of the rainbow, and we sing His praises and glory for the perfect path that got them here today.

Oh to be loved! These grandparents flew all the way here from China to see their first grandson. He’s worth it, don’t you think? 
Joseph was content and relaxed the entire time I was there. A calm filled their hospital room and my heart just soared for them. Grandma and grandpa just couldn't contain their joy as they proudly watched during our session. The Xu family was wonderful to work with and their sweet boy is too perfect for words. 
Joseph, your name means to add, give or increase. I pray that you continue to increase the love and hearts of your family as you grow together.

"We were together, I forget the rest." Walt Whitman

Goodness gracious is this a darn great family- and they are growing by one more little miracle. 
If anyone can do it, it's these incredible folks. I look up to this family and the way they compassionately do life. From their big hearts that touch everyone they meet, to their commitment in raising brave, kind, independent humans...I couldn't be more excited to see them welcome baby number five into the world. 
Congrats, Lori and Westley! Thank you for allowing me to share in your joy!

“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”

Phillip has lived a life that most can only dream of. From California, Florida, Tennessee, and Texas to Spain, Angola, China, and Nigeria. He’s navigated this third culture life with grace and versatility, and the young man you see in these images is ready to branch out. While he’s lived a varied life in different places, he’s back in the states scouting for a university. Upon asking him what he thought about choosing a college, he said the most odd feeling was that of knowing he will be in one place for four solid years. 
Phillip, your friends and family call you a “friend to all”. It was absolutely my pleasure to get to know you more- you wear your heart and soul for other’s to see and it made our time together so real and interesting. 
You are on your way, this is only the beginning.

Blake and Jessica are expecting a sassy little peanut in July. When I first sat down to meet her, the love they have for their little girl was pouring over the table. Sitting in the presence of that love and excitement gives me a little rush- so many amazing firsts in their future. Love looks good on you guys. 

They say expecting mothers have a glow and I know that to be true. But I wonder if it's source is truly just pure love and anticipation. 
Either way, I'm so happy for you guys. I can't wait to meet sweet Kro!

“I don’t know why they say ‘have a baby.’ The baby has you.” Alma Claire is already 3 months old! I can hardly believe it! I always say it is an honor to photograph any family that comes to me, but to get to follow a family through their first year of parenthood, how did I get so lucky? 
The Chancey’s were beaming when I arrived, Alma Claire in their arms. It’s clear they not only adore her, but that parenting looks good on them. Mary said her favorite place is in their big green chair, rocking the days away and snuggling. Three months is a magical time- chubby cheeks and smiles, drool and fingers reaching out for mama, naps and tummy time. Hold tight to these moments and enjoy every second of big chair rocking.

“Our family is a circle of strength of love with every birth and every union the circle grows.”

The Coles just welcomed their most precious Luke into the world. When I came in, grandma had him swaddled up and was admiring his features, taking in every detail. All the months of waiting for him hung heavy in the air; raw, fresh, and new. Luke is finally here and he couldn’t be more perfect. His parents brought a few family heirlooms to the hospital, unsure if they would use them. Family legacy is too important, I had to incorporate them…a baby quilt that belonged to his father when he was a newborn…a necklace that has been passed down through the family with each baby born…it’s in these small details that we are able to celebrate family and history. Each object holds stories of the past, and they await to tell the story of Luke.

Luke, your name means “light”. My prayer for you is that you will shine your light brightly in this world. That you will carry these stories with you, and hold the heritage of your family within your heart always.
