Alex & Erin

A few weeks back I shot a wedding in Louisville, KY for Erin and Alex! This wedding was so much fun because I'd met almost everyone involved in the wedding already! Back in 2011 Rachael (Erin's new sister-in-law) recommended me to her friend Holly who needed a wedding photographer. I shot Holly's wedding and got to know Rachael better that day. A year later Rachael's sister Rebecca got married and hired me to be the wedding photographer. I met their brother Alex and his girlfriend Erin at that wedding two years ago. Alex and Erin then hired me to shoot their wedding a few weeks ago. Last but not least, next year Rachael is getting married and I'll be the photographer for her and her fiance Felipe!

I'm basically the family photographer. I'm cool with that because they're really awesome people. 

Erin and Alex's wedding was super beautiful and so much fun. I can't wait to see the family again in March for Rachael and Felipe's wedding! Enjoy!

Erin told us all the story behind her wedding jewelry as she was getting ready. Her grandfather passed away several years ago. After he passed she decided to save the last $100 he'd ever given her. She wanted to buy something really special with that money and could never think of anything good enough until her wedding. Her wedding jewelry was purchased with that money. 

At Rebecca's wedding she specifically asked for a photo of her and Rachael's tattoos. They both have a tattoo in honor of their brother who passed away. No one asked for a photo of their tattoos this time, but I thought I'd grab one anyway. I like that their brother was represented at the wedding.

Birth Story - Jemima Jean

Hey everyone! I'm finally ready to share Jemima's birth story photos!

Daniel called me on Wednesday at 8 to tell me that things were picking up. I immediately left for their home in Jackson. The whole drive was an inward dilemma between wanting to arrive as soon as possible and also knowing that if I get pulled over for speeding I would actually waste more time with the police than I would by just driving slower. 

I got to the house around 8:30 and heard crying...

So I guess I should tell you: these are not actually BIRTH story photos. These are "immediately following the birth" story photos. Yep, I missed the birth by about three minutes. Apparently I should have taken the risk with speeding. This will forevermore be my excuse for breaking the law.

Emily delivered this baby like a boss. I can't tell you this first hand since I wasn't actually there, but apparently the entire process took about fifteen minutes. Go Emily. 

This is Jemima Jean!

"The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. He had seven sons and three daughters. The first daughter he named Jemima... nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as the daughters of Job"

Emily's parents missed the birth by about ten minutes, but here they are meeting granddaughter number 3.

Big sister Providence was in bed, so I wasn't there when she met Jemima. Here's big sister Ruthie meeting Jemima! 

Baby got cleaned up while Momma got cleaned up. Jemima wasn't happy about being away from Mom.

Little bitty baby feet.

Big sister Ruthie decided to make a birthday card for Jemima!

This photo is completely unstaged. I'm pretty sure this is the "so... we have THREE DAUGHTERS" face.

Little bitty baby hands.
