The Whitacre Family

There are certain things in life that give me a brutal reminder that I'm officially a grown up -- like when your childhood friends start having babies. Sarah and I grew up on opposite sides of a creek, so like any kid, I accurately dubbed her and her sisters "The Creek Girls". Because it just made perfect sense... at the time. We share countless childhood memories building forts, telling scary stories around a campfire, and throwing rocks at the big scary squid monster that lived in the swimming hole. Sarah married Nathan, and they have a BEAUTIFUL little munchkin named Dorian. Nathan is on his way to basic training with the Navy in Rhode Island, so we got to capture a few moments in this amazing family's life on film for Sarah and Nathan to have and hold each other from opposite sides of the country. Enjoy.

Chase, Kelsey & Ella

Last week, I had the pleasure of flying back East to Maryland to meet my brand new niece, Ella Nadine Hughes. Needless to say, my heart was instantly stolen by this precious little angel... as I'm sure yours will be by the end of this blog post :) {see Kelsey's pregnancy photos}

Audrey & Qadence

Meet two of my favorite girls in the whole world. Audrey is one of my best friends. Her daughter, Qadence, is Josiah and I's beautiful Goddaughter. Qadence has the most fantastical imagination which led us to find (and feed) baby dragons in the grass... and if you look REALLY hard, you might be able to see them in the photos...............

Ryan, Martha & Cady

Allow me to start this blog post with a statement of fact: I have the best friends in the whole wide world. At approximately 10:30 pm on Wednesday, March 13th, there was a knock at my door. Standing on my doorstep was a troupe of traveling friends who had pulled off the ultimate feat: Surprising Sarah Leader. After high school, I spent 6 months on a Discipleship Training School at a YWAM base in Northern Ireland. I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined the friendships I would build during those 6 months, and keep for the rest of my life. A group of us had been throwing around the idea of gathering somewhere in the US for St. Patrick's Day, but because of finances I thought the idea had been put on the shelf for another time. I was WRONG. Ryan and Martha (whom you may recognize from their wedding photos) along with my friend Michelle (who is also a talented photographer) continued to conspire and made the St. Patrick's Day AWESOMENESS happen... all the way from Ohio and Florida. Anyyyyyyways. If you hadn't noticed, there is a new addition to Ryan and Martha's life. Her name is Cadence Rhiannon... but we call her Cady... or Cady Bug... or Pumpkin Butt.... and things of that nature :) There is something so INSANE about growing up, and watching your friends grow up with you. It blows my mind that my friends created something so perfect and precious. Their presence in my life and home left a lingering sweetness that I never want to to go away. Now if I could only move Ohio and California closer together, my life would be complete. Enjoy.
