This sweet couple is adding to the nest this coming year as they become a family of three! They were able to share the news with their friends and family through these photos as their pregnancy announcement a couple weeks ago.

Soon they’ll be finding out whether their little one is a boy or a girl, and I’ll be there to capture the moment they find out together! It’s a moment I’ve always wanted to capture and I cannot wait to see them discover if their baby is a son or a daughter.

Welcome to the nest, dear little one! I cannot wait to meet you on your birth day next Spring as your family’s birth photographer! What a beautiful day that will be.

This is a family I’ve personally grown with since they entered our life through our church’s small group over eight years ago. We immediately bonded over Chipotle our love for the Lord, and have seen each other through thick and thin as both of our families have grown through our children. There’s nothing like living life alongside of real, honest, genuine friends. And there’s really nothing like seeing them all meet their very first baby girl– sister and daughter.

Watching these two big brothers meet their sister for the very first time, and watching our friends get to know their first daughter– it was an honor to capture these Fresh 48 moments just 12 hours after her arrival.

Welcome to the world, baby Emily! You are so very loved and I cannot wait to watch you grow.
