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.

What’s This?
Well, well. What's this? Oh that? That's nothing. That's just me PACKING A SUITCASE FOR MY SON because we leave in one week to bring his sweet cheeks home. Holy. Smokes. And what's this? This is my birthday gift from my husband. He said it's for me to take on the plane. However, after a week of packing and getting ready to go, I'll be seriously surprised if there is even one bean left to board the plane with me.

If you are interested in details about meeting us at the airport, email me at beckylee123 (at) comc ...

The Carew Family
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 committ ...

Six Hours of Briggs
We got our boy about six hours ago. He's amazing. And he's huge. He cried for 90% of our time together this afternoon. Surprisingly, we still enjoyed every minute. We'll see how we feel about the crying tomorrow. I gave him a sweet potato puff as a peace offering. He threw it at my face. Today, it was funny, but I told him that if he tries that in about a month, he going to have to sit in time-out. It was a rough afternoon for the little guy - illustrated by the fact that he fell asleep sitting up on the bed by himself. And now that he's sleeping soundly, I kinda want to go wake him up and play with him.
