I'm so excited to capture this family's birth story. One hot Sunday I was able to spend awhile getting to know them and their A-dorable toddler. They played, took a walk, bath, read, had snuggle time and of course watched a little Cars, the favorite movie of every toddler boy! This will be the last time he's an only child and will not remember a time when his brother wasn't around. Sometimes a maternity session is about real life, about capturing those little everyday moments.

Yesterday afternoon my husband's sweet cousin and his wife came up from Atlanta to visit. We headed over to Paris Mountain State Park to snap a few last pictures of them before Baby Declan arrives and two becomes three. First time parents, everything is ready for their sweet boy's arrival and now the waiting game has begun. Doesn't she have the cutest little 37 week belly? We are so excited for them and can't wait to meet the newest Conway!
Come to the Water.
When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the Lord will answer them; I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
The Lord answers the cries of His people through each of his children. He has gifted us with each other. It is through our gifts and through HIs Love that we connect, we exalt. I was blessed to be at the birth of Baby Emmett, blessed to watch his mother bring him into the world with the grace of a gazelle, blessed to see the love between sisters and the calm supportive hand of a father. A father who has heeded the Lord's call to mission to the needy, to the poor. A family that lives to hear the voice of God. Emmet was born amidst laughter and joyful tears, he was born amidst a great love, a love of God that was spoken to him even as he took his first breath.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
ETA: I wrote this blog post on Friday night and in church today realized it was the Feast of Baptism of Our Lord and the reading was from Isaiah! Lord, Bless this family as they venture forth into the world to speak and show your Word.
