Meet Jalyn!

Meet my friend Jalyn!  I met Jalyn four years ago when she was a freshman in high school through Young Life and I have LOVED every minute I have gotten to spend with her.  Jalyn not only has a contagious joy about her (you will see it through her sweet laugh in these pictures) but she also loves Jesus in a beautiful way.  Jalyn has decided to follow Jesus and give up all else.  For anybody that is difficult not to mention a high school student.  She has taken the verse where Paul describes being set apart for the sake of the gospel to heart and is living it out!  I am encouraged by seeing how she loves Jesus.  I just loved getting to take some photos of her and she put up with me literally taking 1000 photos of her!  I just couldn't stop she was so easy to photograph and the location was my FAVE ever!!  I am sorry for the massive amount of photos I just couldn't decide!

I just love this laugh!!

Welcome Haddie Jo

My dear friend Meg just had her baby Haddie Jo.  I saw her at the hospital and was just snapping away with my camera.  I just love getting to capture these beginning moments of Haddie Jo's life and the sweetness of this family.  Seriously one of my favorite families ever!
Just seeing a new life makes me see how obvious it is that Jesus is in charge of creation.  He knit Haddie Jo together, grew her to the perfect moment and gifted her to Meg and Brett for her time on Earth!  What a beautiful thing!  Jesus is so good, so intricate and so on purpose! 
For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 
 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
