A New Day

Hi friends.

I know it’s been a minute since I’ve been around. It’s been a whirlwind of a summer. It’s possibly been the hardest summer of our lives, but it’s also been one of the best.

Here’s a quick recap: Shane was offered a job at Lakeside Christian Church in Northern Kentucky, and we are SO thankful. He is the campus worship leader at the Hebron campus, and we are now living in Union. WE LOVE IT. He began mid-May, and Winnie and I moved to join him at the end of June.

We had to say goodbye to our beloved Elliott this summer. It was so hard, and it still is. Even to type that sentence has me in tears. She gave us one of the greatest gifts in this life – her companionship carried us through so much. I shared this on my Instagram… Shane said it best: She saw us through so many life events, so many ups and downs. She was there for everything, the good and the bad. We’ve been longing for home for years, and she knew that. She helped us get here, and now that it’s done, she knew her job was finished. 🖤 

There were many other days this summer that were even harder for us and so many of our friends, but we’ve never been more acutely aware of the presence of God through it all.

I’ve spent the last few weeks with the most precious images of my career. I’ve prayed, cried, and worshipped for hours each day as I’ve pored over every photo. I’m forever changed, and so is the work I do.

Which brings me to this – the face of my business is changing. I am so excited for what’s next, and I think 2020 could be a very exciting and intentional year for me. In the meantime, I am back to shooting and accepting a limited number of sessions in October and November (including a mini-session day for Southern Indiana).

Please email me here to schedule your session asap. Thanks for being here, and I can’t wait for what’s next.

  • Here’s a quick update, for those asking... unfortunately, we don’t really have one. 😔 We’re still sitting in the unknown with baby. We have questions that won’t be answered until the big day, and we’re still praying that we get to the big day safely. And now we’re navigating the covid-19 chaos that has been added. No matter how “ready” I try to be, I am not ready to deliver during a global health crisis. 🦠😣 But even though we don’t know how this will all turn out, we do know Who .... we know Who holds us and this entire situation. So please keep praying. ♥️

  • I’ll be honest, I don’t have much to say about coronavirus. Right now, it’s just not a priority for us. At the risk of being one of those vague posts that everyone is annoyed by, I’m going to share this without getting too into the details. So here I am, asking you to pray. 🖤 When I was pregnant with Winnie, I was at the hospital a lot during those last few weeks of pregnancy for IV iron infusions. I was dangerously anemic, and I foolishly thought that was as crazy as pregnancy would ever get for me. 😓😬 This time around, I’m at the hospital a lot again, but this time we’ve got a lot of questions and not as many answers, and we’re just praying to get to the finish line healthy and safe. I would be forever thankful if you’d pray for us in this season. (no, it’s not Covid-19 🦠) And pray for this momma’s heart - our hospital has enacted a no visitors policy, which includes big sisters 😫😭 I totally understand the policy, but I’m definitely a little heartbroken over it.
  • What a season for holding tight to the things that are important. 🖤🌟

  • I’m slowly working on the last of my sessions before baby is here (emphasis on slowly 🦥🤪). Thankfully I have incredible and patient clients who are understanding and encouraging through this season. ❤️One of my more recent sessions has finally made it to my blog! 👏🏻 Jenny and the entire @theelderberryco team were a joy to photograph. 📸😊️

  • We were kids, ages 16 and 14. Never in a million years could I have guessed that 20 (!!!) years later, we would be here. 🖤 If I’d had the chance to write this story, I would have missed out on so much - it’s better than I could ever have imagined.

Happy 14th anniversary to my #1. Loving him is one of my greatest privileges.

  • These last few weeks have been the busiest and also the hardest weeks of pregnancy, and I don’t think that’s a coincidence. 😣 I’m learning a lot about what it means to slow down and listen to my body (and this sweet wild child I’m carrying), which also means letting a lot of things go. It’s hard, but of course it’s worth it. 🖤 But also, being pregnant in your (almost) mid-30’s is NO. JOKE. 😅🙈
