One of the best things about my job is getting to actually document a family's journey as it grows and changes throughout the years. Stephanie was a student of mine at SEBTS several years ago and I first photographed them when they brought their first daughter, Ryah, home from Ethiopia. They began the process of adoption well before we did, but we had already brought our little guy home before they were able to have Ryah in their arms. Documenting them with her was such a beautiful blessing. When they contacted me after they found out they were pregnant with this little nugget, I was over joyed to photograph both Stephanie in a maternity session, and then the family again with Cora as a newborn.
And now, Cora turned ONE! Yes...one! It went by so fast!! To my sweet little girlfriend, Cora - may you grow up to be strong, beautiful, ever trusting in the Lord, and full of faith with a heart full of love for others. Enjoy <3
And just for the fun of it...here's Cora Last year:
