Hey everyone! Happy happy Monday! I hope all of you had the best weekend!! We sure did. We got to celebrate Lily Ryan’s birthday (which was actually over a week ago) with a mouse-themed party at our house this weekend! Our families came over to celebrate with us and we just had the best time. Photos of that coming later this week!
One really fun thing we got to do the day after Lily Ry’s actual birthday was spend the morning with my photographer friend Hannah Groat. Hannah is someone I’ve gotten to know over the past six months or so, and she is AMAZING. She is an incredible photographer with a passion for capturing real moments that will last a lifetime. She shared with me at the beginning of this session that she lost her mom when she was young, so some of her most prized possessions are the photos that she has of her and her mother.
Along that same vein, a precious friend of mine who lost her little boy about a year and a half ago said how priceless the professional photos that she has of their family are.
If there is one lesson to be learned from both of these experiences, it is to get GOOD photos of you and your people! They are great to have just in general, but they escalate in value when the Lord calls someone from those photos home.
Hannah took all of these photos of film, which I just love. Since I had SO many favorites from our session, I’m going to have to break them up into three separate posts over the next two weeks just so I don’t have one post with about 70 photos! Ha! I really did have that many favorites… I told y’all Hannah was good!
I broke them up into (1) cuddles and love, (2) my favorite black and whites, and (3) eating and playing! Since it’s Valentine’s Day week, I figured I’d start with cuddles and love!
I can’t wait to share more from this session!! Huge thank you to Hannah for taking time out of her day to come capture our crazy 🙂 I highly recommend booking her for an in-home lifestyle shoot if you even think you might be interested!! 😉
I hope you’re gearing up for a great week! Here’s a little inspo to get ya going today! 🙂
I love this reminder of where real security and confidence come from. We are never abandoned and always supported with Jesus! Always 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by today! XOXO!
