This Niece of Mine

Personal

A couple of weeks ago, my niece decided to come along with me for a family photo shoot. We arrived early and I asked her to walk around with me to test the light before my clients arrived. She happily agree and my “light check” turned into a little mini photoshoot.

There is a special joy for me that comes with photographing people that I know and love and care deeply about. It’s why you see so many photos of my own kids around here. This niece of mine, she is another one of those precious people. She was in my wedding – in her mama’s belly – all those years ago and I can hardly believe that she will be 12 this summer. This chick is so.much.fun to be with and I continually find myself in awe of the tender heart and wise spirit that God is creating in her.

Thanks, Miss Arlee, for playing along. You make a lovely model and a wonderful photography assistant.

Tomorrow - yes TOMORROW - we are boarding a jet plane bound for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. *Side note; we're taking the "red-eye" out of Denver. Saying that makes me feel like such an important jet setter. "Yeah, I'm so busy and in demand that I have to do my traveling in the middle of the night. It's no big deal. Psshh." After being in Ethiopia for about 24 hours, we will meet our boy. I can wait to feel his weight in my arms. To hear his voice (we're pretty sure he'll either be screaming in fright or laughing at us.) To get a good look at that hair and those eyelashes. I am over-the-moon excited. I really am. But I'm also dreading this meeting ...

Five Minutes with Her Toothbrush
It's been a while since I blogged a 5-minute-project - but Christmas break means time to work on my own projects and that usually translates into sharing a few photos of my own kiddos with you! Be honest, you probably don't spend 5 minutes with your toothbrush do you? But miss Geneva does. In fact, she'll spend 30 minutes brushing her teeth - three times a day - if I let her! Here's just five minutes of her little hygiene routine.

I’ve got diapers comin’ out my ears
Thanks to some careful planning by my lovely shower hostesses and the overwhelming generosity of many, many people, we will be traveling with 1,200 diapers. 1,200 diapers to donate to the care center that has been loving our boy for the past 8.5 months. And lets not forget about the 4 cans of formula, 8 bottles of hand sanitizer, 400 wipes, 10 pairs of shoes, 2 bibs, and 1 tub of baby clothes that we also get to pass along.We are so, so thankful to all of you who have enabled us to bless the care center that has gone above and beyond to provide excellent care for our baby. I continue to be overwhelmed. Seriously. God has surrounded us by such ...
