Lainey {first birthday!}

Happy new year, friends! Lainey celebrated her first birthday as we all ushered in 2017. This gorgeous new year baby and her parents invited me to their home for an intimate photoshoot. Her parents prepared a beautiful backdrop, cute outfits, and awesome props. The birthday girl walked {!!!} around and explored while I happily trailed her and snapped away. Happy birthday sweet Lainey!

Hello Eliana! {newborn}

Dave and I welcomed our daughter Eliana into the world just last week. Her name means "my God has answered" in Hebrew which we felt was especially appropriate given our struggle to conceive. Labor and delivery were smooth while breastfeeding has been a challenge. But we survived our first week as a family of three! Praise the Lord for this new addition to our family.

The Yang Family

It has been a while since I posted photos of my niece Olivia and my new nephew Elliot. I'm so thankful I was able to squeeze in an updated family photoshoot for my sister and her growing family. I'm now 39 weeks pregnant and waiting for our own baby to make her grand entrance. She's going to be in great company!

Jennifer+Andy {expecting!}

I met Jennifer at Helen's baby shower and we found out that our husbands are also acquaintances! Goodness what a small world we live in. So I was thrilled when Jennifer and Andy asked me to take their maternity photos and was even more excited to go back to Alley Pond Park {my fave place to take portraits}. Jennifer and Andy are also expecting a November baby--a baby boy!
