Josh and I spent a day with this sweet family. We went to take pictures of baby Ivy, but we also took family pictures. I will post the newborn photos of Ivy in a separate post.
Joye and I met through instagram, and I am so happy to be able to call her a friend now. She is definitely a Proverbs 31 kind of lady. She loves her children and her husband and these pictures definitely show this. One of my favorite posts that she has posted about her children was with one of my photos. She said, “My greatest gifts. Each one of them so unique, with giftings and callings as diverse as they are exceptional. And I pray that I will help them discover the spiritual gifts that God has entrusted them with, that I will help them recognize who they are in Christ Jesus, that their worth to Him is invaluable, that God has written a part for them in His story that no on else on earth can fill. This gift of motherhood is sacred and sanctifying. It’s hard and holy and humbling. And its always, always an honor.” You can read all of her inspiring posts on her blog here.
I am so blessed to call you friend Joye, and so honored you asked me to capture your family through my photographs.
Story was my little helper while i was taking pictures of just Joye and Joel with Ivy, and I let her take my camera and take some pictures. This one is my favorite that she took.
