Baby Malachi On the Way!

I met Aimee in Bald Knob last Saturday for her maternity shoots.  It was chilly and windy, but she was certainly a trooper for me!  My parents attend the same church as Aimee and her family, and my mom has been keeping me updated on Aimee's story here and there.  Saturday, I asked if I could share a little of her story, and she gave me permission to share.  
Aimee has what is called a Molar Pregnancy with Coexisting Fetus.  If you are like me, you have never heard of that before now.  I really don't know a lot about it other than what I have heard from my mom about Aimee and baby Malachi.  I know that baby and mom are both doing as well as possible right now, but there are several risks that her doctors are watching very closely.  From what I understand right now, the baby's health is far better than the doctors were expecting at this point.
What I DO know for sure is that God is good.  He is still on His throne.  He knew this was going to happen long before it did.  He formed Malachi in Aimee's womb, and He has a wonderful plan for that child's life.  He is holding Malachi, Aimee, her husband Chris, and their 3 girls in the palm of His hand.  And He is going to carry them all through every step of this!!
Please say a prayer for this family.  Right now.  As you read this blog post, take time to whisper their names and lift them up the God of all healing.  Thank you, and enjoy some of my favorites from this session!

Maddox: Newborn

Oh, this cutie........I cannot get over the fact that he was so wide eyed and alert for so much of his session!  Cracking me up!  He did so well for me!  We had a lot of fun, and got lots of cute shots!  :)  And big brother. ever.  So cute!!!!!

The FOUR Brumleys!!!

Oh how this post makes my heart happy!!!  On April 13, 2009, Paige commented on one of my posts.  "...I need to send you pictures of my baby blocks I made for the baby room. Still no baby to fill it...slowly but surely God will provide!"  And provide He did!!  This past Monday, the Brumleys went from a family of 2 to a family of 4!!  Tyler and Kaylee are now official, although, when I took these pictures a few weeks ago, they seemed pretty settled into their new family quite nicely.  :)  Paige and Brandon have been through a lot over the past few years.  You can read a little about their story on Pagie's blog:  
This past week, their prayers were answered in the affirmative with the addition of these 2 precious faces.  Our God doesn't always work like we think He should.  Our God doesn't always work on the same time table we do.  But trust this - our God ALWAYS works for his glory and our good.  And though I don't know why he chose to let Paige and Brandon travel down this road, I do know that He was on His throne the whole time.  He was watching and listening the whole time.  And while the road wasn't always happy or pretty or nice, it led them to these two sweet babies for them to love, take care of, and raise to know and love Him.  
Congrats, P!!!  I know we don't see each other often, but I still think about dorm life, often, and remember all the crazy fun times we had!!  I couldn't be happier for you right now.  Love you tons!!!!!  L

L Family

OK, this family is hilarious, and I had a blast shooting them today!  I work with Leah, and so I get to see her and sweet Sophia every day.  Sophie cracks me up, and today was no different!  :)  We got a lot of fun shots, and I had a hard time narrowing them down for sure!!  Here is just a sneak peek of some of my favorites!  Enjoy!

Cade: 2 years

Cade was a little unsure of me when I showed up to get some 2 year shots of him.  He climbed on a rock and jumped off a few times.....all while keeping a close eye on me.  :)  After a few minutes, he warmed up some and offered up some smiles.  Here are a few of my favorites from the day.

Below is a shot of Cade's older brother, Conner.  I don't know why I love it so much, but it is the perfect depiction of what it's like to photography boys!!  Love it!!

Grant: 1 year old!

This little blue eyed cutie is one, and very on the go!  He gave me lots of smiles!  The wind was a little wild but this family just went with it!  So much fun!!  Enjoy some of my favorites!  Those eyes!!!!!
