The missing piece to our family...

I was so excited when my aunt Nancy called me to do this shoot!

I have to give a little background before I post this one. When my aunt was younger, she got pregnant and gave her baby up for adoption to a WONDERFUL family since she was not able to take care of the baby. This was information that no one knew about until recently. Through an act of God, my aunt finally got to meet her beautiful baby boy, Jason... and now the missing piece of our family is here:)... and we got not just 1 new family member... but 5! Jason married a beautiful lady named Missy, and has 3 kids... Hunter, Hannah and now baby Lane:) I feel so blessed to be able to meet my long lost cousin! My aunt Nancy is now complete... and so is our family:) All I can say is that God is good!!!!

Meet Jason... and his family:)

Meet my aunt Nancy... and her 3 kids:)

Meet my aunt Nancy, her parents and all of her kids and grandchildren!

I was also INCREDIBLY happy to hear that my grandparents were going to be here for the shoot. I have wanted to shoot them for so long now! They have been married for 66 years and are still madly in love:) Seriously. Look at the way Grandpa looks at her still! They have set the bar very high for all our marriages!!! 
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa.... for being such a wonderful example to all of us. Thank you for the lessons you have shown us to always put family first. Thank you for teaching us to always have a strong faith. You gave that to my mom... who taught all of us:) Thank you for teaching us that education is so important, and for supporting all of us through that part of our life. Thank you for supporting all of your kids, grandkids and great grandkids through all of the joys, struggles, and losses. You are our strength. We love you so much!

Melody is here!

Oh the Evans family... such a special family for so many reasons. When I am around them, I feel calm and happy. They are all just so content and it just radiates! The kids are amazing... such good listeners (which at their ages is not necessarily the case with many:). They just had their 3rd baby. What a blessing each addition is to any family. Here are a few of my favorites from our day together:)
