The Carew Family

Families Personal

It just seems so fitting to be closing out 2014 with the Carew family. Why? Well, because you, dear Good Photo client, were a part of bringing this family together.

Really? Yes. Really.

Let me explain – the Carews have been faithfully praying for and pursing and working towards adopting a child for the past three years. And finally – FINALLY- their precious little boy came home from Ethiopia the day before Thanksgiving. (Check out his homecoming here)

That was such a wonderful day! But, here’s the thing about adoption, it’s really hard.

Adopting a child takes a lot of patience and faith and, well, finances. When the Carews committed to adding a child to their family, Good Photo committed to supporting them financially. And that’s where all of YOU came in. Every time you’ve given me the huge privilege of capturing your families, kiddos, engagements, weddings, and events, a portion of the profits went to supporting the Carews. And weather you did it on purpose or not, I’m just so thankful that we all could be a part of THIS. Here’s to a blessed 2015 – I pray it will be a year of growth, blessings, and maybe a few surprises for you and yours. Happy New Year!

New babies are like campfires - you can watch them for hours and all at once nothing changes and everything changes. Froggy legs Wrinkled knees Hands that won’t stay out of her mouth Flexed toes Tight, tiny, mad fists A tongue that sticks out when she cries And a big brother who climbs into the middle of all things baby and loves and loves and loves. Meet my new little lady.

Five Minute Project || A Little Camera Practice
When I started doing the Five Minute Project a couple of years ago, I thought I'd probably play along for a few months and then move on. But here I am, two years later, still really enjoying the practice of it. Last week, on a phenomenally gorgeous day, Briggs said to me, "Hey Mama! Let's play with our cameras!" Oh sweet boy, you don't have to ask me twice! He photographed his favorite subject and I photographed him. I hesitated to share these photos on the blog-o-sphere. On one hand, my mama heart LOVES them and sees them as beautiful. When I look at them, I see my little boy growing creatively and I see just how much he adores his sis ...
I've had two baby showers this month and I am still overwhelmed by the love that was POURED out on us and our boy. I am blessed to have amazing friends (and a super-amazing sister-in-law) who thoughtfully and carefully planned each detail. From over-the-top cupcakes, to Ethiopia-related food and games, to a diaper and formula raffle to help us collect donations, my sweet ladies thought of it all. I could not be more thankful that God has given me these wonderful women in my life. All of them are mommies already and they may not know it yet (or maybe they can see it comin'), but I'm probably going to be asking for lots of help ...
