Welcome little one!

Our sweet little one is here and though this mama has been a bit behind, we are celebrating 3 weeks with our daughter Ada.

If there is one takeaway I have learned it is how far from in control I really am in life. This might sound silly and obvious but up until the birth of our daughter and the recovery of a c-section, I haven’t had any other experiences that have so clearly affirmed that truth.

I would love to say that I welcomed it gracefully, but in all honesty it has been a big challenge for me. However, every day I get to learn more about this precious child, I get to witness in awe my husband so naturally taking care of our little one, and I hope to lean into my faith even more to be the mom that He wants me to be. Because if I have learned anything, it’s that I can’t do anything on my own without His grace and mercy and that is my peace.

A few of my personal favorites.

Big changes

The title is not only to significant to our growing family, but oh goodness has my belly grown. It is so unreal that we are already so close to the end of these nine months of pregnancy, but I am so thankful for each one and the incredible growth of this little one.

Fair Season

Fair season often takes place during the hottest of days and this year it was certainly the case the day of the sheep show. However, I loved photographing from a place of not just a fair goer, but from behind the scenes of being part of the fair, where it’s a family event full of hard work.

There is a lot that I learned about showing sheep and a lot I still don’t know, but spending time with this wonderful family was such an honor especially when it is the last season for this whole group to do it together. Enjoy and have a wonderful day!

Malawi Part 2: Photography

Part one of the Malawi series was focused on the sweet little ones we met through Kingdom Workers disability ministry, who all stole my heart and taught me so much. Feel free to check that out right here. In this segment of the Malawi series, I focused on a question that I wrestled with during our time teaching at bible school in Malawi, Africa.

Should I be taking pictures or should I be living in the moment…
