Seniors: Baylee Jo

I remember when Dad told us that we were going to have another sibling. He was picking us up in his old truck for the weekend. Courtney cried (always such a Daddy's girl) and I squealed excitedly (always ready for more babies). I spent as much time as I could with your mama's belly. Loving, cooing, singing. I loved you so much.

When you were born I didn't know what to think. How could I love you so much? I didn't know you, but I knew you. My responsibility of being the big sister doubled and I gladly accepted the weight. I would forever care for you. The most difficult part of having a blended family was not being able to hold you everyday.

One time when you were about two you were really sick while we stayed the night with Ma & Pa. Puking up purple crap. Who knows what that was. Grandparents are always such pushovers when it comes to goodies. I remember you wouldn't let anyone hold you except me. I felt so honored and cherished and oh, I so cherished you.

Today you are one of my best friends. My sister. My blood. Our bond is strong and will forever be.

And you are a 2015 graduate.

I just can freaking believe it.

I love you, my sweet baby sister.

Outdoor Maternity: Gena

I meet a lot of people in my line of work. I've never met anyone I dislike. I typically even keep in touch after our session. This family though, I feel a connection. A possible friendship that bloomed from a chance meeting. 

I love life. I love how it unfolds unexpectedly. 

This mama, she is a goddess. A beautiful being. We utilized their gorgeous home to capture sweet moments of her pregnancy. 

We have, together, created tangible, heirloom memories to pass on for generations.
