Newborn Pictures

A very talented girlfriend of mine (and fellow boy mom) came over the week after Ellie was born to snap a few pics!  They turned out so well, I just had to share!  I'll treasure them always. 
I'm so thankful my friend captured Ellie in these precious early days. 
Her fuzzy hair.
Her turned up nose.
Her tiny pink lips.
Her soft cheeks and barely there eyelashes.
The way she slept through the entire shoot.
And how Andrew decided to hop in a few pictures at the end - you can just see how much he loves and adores her.  

It's crazy how fast time is flying - I can't believe these were taken 4 weeks ago!  

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
Matthew 5:16

So very grateful for the beautiful blessings of this life, and for these three humans below.  
They bring me so much joy. We truly do have so much to be thankful for, and I strive to count my blessings on a daily basis.  
Wishing you and yours a very happy and grateful Thanksgiving!

Maternity Pictures - Pensacola Beach

Time has absolutely flown by these past several months of preparing for baby, and then welcoming our new bundle of joy!  In the midst of the craziness and busyness, I have realized that I never posted our wonderful maternity pictures!  One of my childhood best friends who is amazingly talented, captured our family so beautifully and I am forever grateful for the memories.  

I can't believe that we now have precious Ellie here now!  
Here are some of my favorites from the bunch:
