Hunter and I are so incredibly blessed by this beautiful baby girl. God has given us our heart’s desire with this sweet child; we praise him! Sweet Emma came into the world on October 15, 2014 at 2:11 am weighing in at 7 lbs 13.6 oz, all 19 inches of her. We are so thankful to our midwives for their awesome care of us and all our great friends (nurses)! Friends and family have showered us and our little one with so many gifts, meals, and love– we are so thankful! I am so blessed that I was able to take Emma’s newborns! It was so much pressure to capture her in this adorable stage- did I get enough photos, enough poses, will she have wanted Mommy to have gotten someone else to take them, were the props enough or do I need more?! I am happy with how they turned out though and hope she will be too one day. Her father and I love her so darn much and are so happy to be her parents…
I was so excited she had hair!
Alert little Emma baby
Those little toes! Eeek!
Psalm 127:3 Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!
We didn’t find out what we were having all pregnancy and were so excited to find out finally whether we were having a little boy or girl!! When Mel held her up for us, Hunter said “I think it’s a girl!!!!” We were shocked. We both guessed we were having a little boy! Such a sweet surprise!
Psalm 139:13 You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother.
Couldn’t you just eat her up!!!
No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you’re the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone
I just love those little eyes looking up at us
“A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart till the day you die.”

I just want to squeeze her all the time!!
My little Emmy baby
Whoo is this cute kid?!
My sweet friend Ali made Emma this quilt in the mist of wedding planning!
The best buck Papa is gonna get!
My sister who shoots weddings with me took these and we’re so grateful!
Aunt Katie, we’ll always cherish these photos of us with our little peanut!
