Let me introduce you to Kelsea and Jeremiah. Kelsea is my beautiful niece and Jeremiah is her handsome husband. I guess that makes Jeremiah my nephew in law. By the way, is there such a thing as a nephew in law? Anyway, I am so completely honored that they invited me into their home so I could capture these tender moments before the grand arrival of their first baby. I loved listening to their giddy excitement and great sense of wonder for the days ahead. Seeing Jeremiah's face light up as he said, "I can't wait to see the baby and see who she looks like." Oh the sweetness of it all!!! I arrived at Kelsea and Jeremiah's home late Saturday afternoon during the final moments of Sabbath. I asked their permission if I could capture their closing ceremony of Sabbath and the ushering in of the new week. There is a lot of new beginnings about to unfold for these two and I couldn't help but notice the symbolisms between this ceremony and the arrival of their new baby. Endings followed by new beginnings. Just as the sun sets, a new moon rises.
What a special time we shared together. We, or rather I, kept liberally using the word "magic" to describe our photoshoot. But that's exactly what it was, MAGIC, followed by heaping helpings of love and so much goodness. These photos just make me smile. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
