Welcome baby James


A few days before baby James' scheduled arrival, our dear friends Jen and Joda invited us over to their new home to share a meal together.  We're talking 3 days before the scheduled due date of this baby.  This is the kind of warmth and generosity that this couple shares with everyone they call friends and Brandon and I are so blessed to be among them!  Here are a few pre-baby photos from our day of feasting with them.

Not long after the arrival of baby James, I got to spend another day with this sweet little family.  I can't express how incredibly lucky I feel when what I do translates into amazing people inviting me into their lives to capture such special and intimate moments.  Here is a glimpse of Jen and Joda's life at home as proud new parents to a very lucky and beautiful babe.  Congrats you two on your beautiful new family!
