Family Pictures at Duke Gardens

Our good friend, Nathan Lawrenson, shot a family photo session for us as few weeks back at Duke Gardens.  He is an incredible photographer with a powerful story!  The Lawrensons are some of our dearest friends and we are blessed to have them in our lives.  God certainly brought us all together at pivotal times in our own family journeys.  We are so grateful for the many ways God has and continues to work through them.

If you’re even thinking of having family pictures done, you MUST check him out!  You will not be disappointed.  Here are some of our favorite pics:

Our First Week At Home

We are absolutely in love!  Its hard to believe Eliana is already eleven days old.  She’s growing up so fast!  I just want to photograph and record every single moment.  Each one is such a gift.  Jordan & I continue to be overwhelmed by our beautiful Answer To Prayer.  She amazes us more and more each day.

Eliana has been the perfect baby so far.  She’s animated and smiley when awake, sleeps hard between feedings, and goes down for bed in her crib without a fuss.  She’s already beginning to hold her head up for several seconds at a time, moving it controlled from side to side.  Jordan definitely brings the smiles out of her.  I’ve been telling her since I was pregnant that she’d be a daddy’s girl and she certainly is…warms my heart!

Huge thanks, by the way, to everyone who has sent encouraging emails, cards, and delicious meals for us.  Its been such a blessing to adjust to life at home with Eliana without the stress of planning a meal each night.  You all have made this transition into stay-at-home mom much easier for me.  Thank you!

Here are some of our favorite pics from the past week.  While we know we’re biased, we think you’ll agree that she’s just gorgeous! 🙂

Home With Eliana

What an amazing five days we’ve had with our little girl!  Eliana is truly a gift from God.  She has been an absolute joy.  Sleeping peacefully and completely alert when awake.  We fall more & more madly in love with her every day.  Enjoy some photo highlights of her first few days with our little girl…
