The Cooks Maternity

A beautiful park and a beautiful Fall day and a beautiful Momma and her family – made this a wonderful first maternity photo shoot for me.  Thanks Jennifer for not having baby Cook yet and for sharing your life and family with me.  Will be looking forward to meeting you cute new son and bringing you macaroni and cheese – because we know that that meal makes all things better!

My prayers to our faithful God for knitting your baby beautifully and for protection over the next few days or weeks.  And strength – can’t forget strength!

Faces: Sibling Love

posted in: photo shoot | 0

One of the pleasures of getting married is the chance to automatically have a larger family.  Before the mister and I tied the knot, we had the chance to go visit his aunt and uncle who live in Colonial Williamsburg.  We had a blast.  We both love to travel, eat, and admire history, and his aunt and uncle were gracious hosts and very hospitable.

Almost three years later, here we are in the Atlanta area, and that same aunt and uncle – their son, daughter-in-law, and grandson and daughter live in the same city we do.  They’ve been a gracious welcome wagon for us and we look forward to more time spent with them.

The boys and I had the pleasure of hanging out in the Marietta Square with them this past week.  E is about to lose her first teeth, so we had to capture that pretty smile beforehand.  These pictures were fun, followed by a chaotic lunch at Taqueria Tsunami (for an amazing Korean BBQ quesadilla and their stellar made-to-order guacamole).  I hope you enjoy some of the moments I was able to capture.

I got to know Kathie when we took a short road trip down to Fort Worth, Texas for a photography workshop given by Casey and Kristin.  It was a fun short trip a year ago this weekend.  Meaning…it was missions weekend last year and this year is the missions weekend at our church.  How timely!

Last weekend we got to head out to Two Rivers park here in Little Rock, just minutes from our home, on a gorgeous evening about dusk time, and take some photos of her with her love.  Thanks Richard and Kathie for letting me share your lives with my readers!  It was a joy taking your photos!

Its really interesting who God brings into your life and what their passions are.  I first met Carrie back when I was doing college ministry at a local church and she was a student at UNC.  How both of our lives have changed!

Her interests: designing beautiful girl’s clothing (all you moms out there need a new dress for your daughters – right?), loving people, encouraging them, being real with friends, making dreams happen for others.  She is sweet and loves pink (can you tell by these pictures?).  We had a fun photo shoot with balloons, fun accessories, and the hottest day in Durham so far.  American Tobacco was quiet this morning for which I was thankful and the wind kept to a minimum so the balloons weren’t ALL over the place.

Loving God…loving others – this is what she likes to do!
