All of my little babies are growing up! I can’t take it! It feels like it was just last month when we were placing this sweet little sugar lump on our tree swing outside, and now here she is smashing into her first birthday cake! We have loved watching Miss Caulder grow up this year. She has the most adorable personality, and is just the cutest thing! Caulder, we love you, sweet girl! Happy Birthday, Baby!
The minute this cutie came in for his newborn session and we learned that Dad was a Citadel grad it was determined that his first birthday session would most definitely be done at The Citadel. We never pass up the chance to photograph in Charleston, and The Citadel is one of our favorite spots! It proved to be true once again at Beau’s birthday session! How cute is this guy?! Those giant brown eyes are just adorable, and I love his sweet little grin. It blows my mind that he’s already one, but I think I say that with every single first birthday blog post. Why on earth does that first year fly by so fast?! Sweet Beau, Happy Birthday, Buddy! We love you so much!
There are so many things about this precious family and the battles they have fought and are currently fighting that I just don’t understand. My heart has broken countless times while watching Owen battle this horrendous disease as his family stood right there with him, fighting with him and encouraging him every step of the way. He has endured things that no child should ever have to endure, and his momma has seen things that no momma should ever have to see her child go through. And now, Gillian. I was sitting outside of our camper at Myrtle Beach State Park lazily scrolling through Instagram when I saw the news that Gillian had cancer. NO. NO NO NO NO NO. How is that even possible? Not after all she has seen her baby go through, not after all that their family has endured? It couldn’t be possible. But it was. And it is. And this diagnosis raises so many questions and causes so much confusion and hurt in the hearts of so many. You know, Gillian is one of the main reasons that we are even a camping family. She used to talk about how fun it was, and her stories and pictures are what sparked my interest in finding out more about this camping thing. Through the years she has touched my life in so many little and BIG ways, and I am heartbroken that she is going through all of this. I wish I had answers and insight into what is going on, but I most definitely do not. I do know this: God is SO Good. God loves SO Much. He is in control, and He does have a plan. Through absolutely everything Gillian has always been transparent and told you how she was feeling, even before Cancer was ever a part of their story. I love this about her so much! So, y’all, let’s listen when she posts updates, and let’s commit as a community to pray unceasingly and specifically for her requests. The people of Florence love this family and have rallied around them to show that love. Today Block and Vino is doing a HUGE BBQ Chicken fundraiser, and there will be a bake sale as well as plenty of other opportunities to stop in and show them how much you care! Gillian, we love y’all! We are praying and we promise we will not stop!
Clara Beth and I were happily strolling through Target when the absolute BEST message popped up on my phone! One of my very favorite brides was letting me in on my very favorite kind of secret…a BABY is coming!!! And she wanted to do a session to surprise her family! I mean, y’all, you couldn’t wipe the smile from my face. When the sweetest people get blessed with the opportunity to raise a sweet baby?? It’s just my FAVORITE. So Collin and I met up with Tiffany and DeQuincey for a little Show Me Some Love/Baby announcement session. The announcement has now been made to her family, so I am thrilled to be able to finally share it with the rest of the world! Guys, Congratulations!!! We are so excited! And sweet little one, we can’t wait to meet you! You are already one loved little baby!
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
Y’all!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! We were walking down a street in New York City earlier this month when Collin opened up an email to discover that we had been voted Best of the Pee Dee again for 2017. You could have knocked us over with a feather! We were SHOCKED! It will NEVER cease to amaze me what the Lord has done with this tiny photography business. He has created this career that has enabled us to meet the most amazing people, see the most incredible sights, and walk through priceless journeys with beautiful families. And, bonus?? I get to hold a baby nearly EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Pinch me!!! Collin still occasionally looks at me and says he’s waiting to grow up and feel like he has a real job. Over and over again Jesus shows us how much He loves us through the people He sends to this portrait studio. Soooo…Thank you. Thank you for liking what we do and letting us know. That truly means more to us than you will ever know, and we will never be able to thank you enough for it. BUT, we’d like to at least try to say thanks! Here’s how we’re going to do it:
