Where can I even begin to express my gratitude? A few things stand out to me this year to have thanks for. First of all, is my beautiful family. I am so lucky to have the supportive, loving, kind, sweet, and tender husband that I do. Plus, he makes me laugh every day. I could not be more thankful for my sweet daughter. She truly is an angel from heaven. She has the sweetest nature of any child I have ever seen in my life. I am so thankful for this wonderful pregnancy. It has been a joy, been easy, and uncomplicated thus far. I can’t wait to have a baby boy to cuddle in my arms! I am so thankful to be a mother. It is such a divine thing and brings me immense joy every day. I am so thankful for such a supportive family. They cheer me on through all the ups, and help me get through the downs. I am so thankful for my faith, because of the peace and guidance that it brings me. I have so much gratitude for the basics. We have a roof over our heads, a warm place to sleep, and bellies full of delicious and healthy food. Not everyone gets to have those. I am so thankful for photography, and great friends who take great photos like Sarah. Because of her willingness to share her talent, and because of the invention of photography, I will forever and ever have these images to cherish of this very special and unique time in my life. I will keep my message short today (cause trust me, I could go on, and on, and on, and on, and on some more!). I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and cherish in your hearts what you have to be thankful for.

Me at 32 and a half weeks. Photos taken by Sarah Knight in the comfort of my home. Take note: this will probably be the only time you will ever see my belly! I am a little shy to share them with the world, but I celebrate this extra plump stage in my life. :)

I haven’t seen Sami in about 8 years.  I was absolutely delighted not only to see her, but to capture her family’s memories and to take her one year old baby boy Dallas’s photos! She was just as fun loving as I remember, but twice as gorgeous. (I mean, her hair! Her skin! Her cheekbones! Not fair!)  It is very apparent how much these two parents love this little guy, and for good reason!

The bottom right image just cracks me up! When I uploaded them to my computer and I saw it, I couldn’t stop laughing!

I don’t think you’d believe me when I tell you that myself and this family go way way back! So far back that I remember when their oldest girl was born!  Mainly I remember what a joy she was, and how much I wanted to cuddle her!! (I must have been like age 8 or 9).  Eric and my dad are golfing buddies, and although my dad is an excellent golfer, I’m sure that Eric can whoop his you know what any day of the week!  It has been ages since I’ve seen them so you can imagine my delight when Robyn contacted me to do their photos!  I hadn’t met their other two children, so it was a lot of fun taking photos for them.
