What a blessing to photograph this precious family's newborn session a few weeks ago. We met last fall at their first session with me just days after I had found out I was pregnant with Corinne and when they didn't yet know that they were pregnant with their 2nd little one. We usually spend lots of time just chatting about parenthood and Jesus at our sessions. Ha! Thankfully, they were happy for me to bring Corinne to their home for their newborn session since she was so little, their home that they JUST moved into. I loved that they just wanted me to document this beautiful season no matter what. I have absolutely loved getting to know this sweet family. Jessica shares these words with us about her family...
I am so thankful for these pictures of my sweet babies as our family grows! I want to remember them just as they are in every stage. I have always been the type of person who mourns things easily. Last day of school? I was in tears. Friend moving away? I'm a wreck. The speed with which my babies are growing literally brings me to tears much more often than it probably should. It really does go sooooo fast. This time three years ago I had no children and was not pregnant, and here I sit with an almost two year old and newborn. But it is all so sweet!
I want to always remember these days- my daughter's cute little voice and the funny things she is starting to say, or the way my son's tiny hand will find me as he falls asleep on my chest. I know that my husband and I will recount these days as some of the good ole days. I have always wanted to be a mom and have dreamed of a big family all of my life. The Lord has been so gracious to entrust these children to us. As I look at these pictures I am overwhelmed with His love for me in allowing us to experience and take part in shepherding these sweet babies.
Congratulations Geist family!
