I hadn't met Luke or Julie until last week when I drove to Borger to photograph their 1 week old son, Jackson. All I knew was that they were incredible people- something that had been repeated to me over and over my my family members that had spent time with them. I arrived at their house to find they were exactly right! This new little family is so precious- and of course it was neat for me to get to see new parents with a little boy. They'll actually be starting a whole new adventure in Alaska soon- which I'm sure will be a stage of life they'll never forget! Thanks so much for having me in your home to photograph this precious one!

(If you can't tell- Luke and Julie have some strong feelings for their alma mater!)

Julie's parents were there so of course we had to get a few with them.

Photographing children is always an adventure. You just never know what will happen and I love the challenge of working with kids, even if their priorities are a little bit different than mine :). 

I'd photographed baby Brogan a week prior, but his cousins came into town, so we had a great opportunity to get these 3 cuties together. 

Devon was such a ham and didn't mind "cheesing" for me at all...

Kirsten wasn't so into the camera thing, but when you're this cute not smiling... I can't help myself!

So we played for quite a while.

So sweet.

It helps when you have some really hilarious people helping you out! Thanks Gigi, Aunt Leigh Ann, and Shanna!

Trying so hard not to crack a smile!

And Brogan continued being adorable, of course.

In the end, we got some good smiles!

And getting this last one made all our hard work so worth it!

The first I ever heard of the Plumlees was at church- they were wanting to adopt a baby from China and our church was supporting them in that effort. Of course, China has a special place in my heart, so I was excited to hear about their story. The adoption process is a long one, and while they are waiting for baby Brynlee, God blessed them with Brogan!

I admire Leigh Ann so much- the pregnancy was not an easy one, but finally the day came when Brogan arrived- a perfectly healthy, happy, prayed-for little boy. Brogan has proved to me that God is not only faithful, He is able to bring us more than we could ever ask for! Thank you Lord for Brogan!
