By request, I’m posting some of my favorite recent shots. Until the past year my “hobby” has been taking care of my home and family. While that’s still going on, I’ve added something really fun to do that serves my family and friends, and captures the emotion of both normal life and fun events.
There’s something precious about a newborn crying. This picture brings tears to my eyes as I remember my dear friends praying for over ten years for a baby. Samantha is now three months old and is filling her parents lives with joy. I had such fun doing her first photo shoot.
Several weeks ago Benny and I found out Janelle and Eric and giving us Little Person number twelve, due the day before Benny’s birthday in October. My Missy is becoming a mommy!
We have blondes, a brunette and some beautiful redheads among our Little People. I love watching how much my grandchildren love their siblings. Well, most of the time.
Rachel is Mom to the redheads above. Her love for my son and their children is a blessing beyond words. As my first “New Girl” she taught me how to release the first of my four sons to married life. I’m so grateful.
Amelia turned two last month and — no surprise — Lauren planned a Disney party. (Was it also an excuse for her to wear the Minnie dress Papa bought her on the day of her first Disney visit?) This picture perfectly captures Millie’s personality! Her snaggle-toothed grin (from an injury last year) makes me smile every time. I just wish there were sound affects to go with this pic.
Our dear friends, Jenn and David, have triplets! Last weekend I went over for a photo shoot and couldn’t stop clicking! I wish could share all the pictures but this one of Emma captures my heart. Doesn’t she look like a little angel?
Here they are: the most adorable triplets in the world. Their parents are my heros. Love and sacrifice ooze from them as the enjoy and celebrate their unique little ones.
Ellie and Elsie love to laugh. Pictures like this light up my world and remind me of how much fun it is to be Granma.
One of the many perks of living in Orlando is being able to take the Little People to Disney. Last month we got to take Josiah, Jesse and Rebekah’s youngest. I caught this shot of him after a long day of fun. Such a cutie.
Backyard fun at Papa and Granma’s often involves Red Light, Green Light. Soon we’ll be playing in our new back yard….
Whenever my camera shows up, Annie is always an eager subject. My camera finds her a lot.
Wyatt is my first grandson; just three days older than his cousin, JJ. This picture scares me a little. He’s looking so much like a young man and less like a little boy. It’s okay, though. My Little People aren’t allowed to age past six, so later next month his birthday will make him 6 plus 2.
Watching my children marry and start their own families leaves me experiencing a mixture of sadness and joy. I miss having all my chicks in the nest but the deep joy I find in seeing a new generation being raised to love and serve the Lord by godly parents brings treasured contentment. And I admit it, sometimes I love it when everyone leaves and the house gets quiet.
I am one wealthy woman who is undeserving of such kindness from God.
