Thank you so much for stopping by. I love what I do and the looks on my client's faces when they realize these are the moments they want to remember. You know, the pictures that give you goosebumps, chills and take your breath away. Pictures taken by the heart for the heart.

{ Grace }

Some facts...
She was born
November 17th, 2011.
One of eight.
Four boys, four girls.
Birth place Heyworth.
Forever home Normal.
What's not normal, this house!
She was not named after Mark
But for the grace of God.
You either have grace or you don't,
you can't have just a little grace...Seinfeld
 Without further ado, let me introduce to you

~Gracey Belle~



Some of her brothers and sisters...just because I can't stand it! I wanted them all.

But thank God I didn' may never be the same :)

And for Jeez..."When  I open my eyes please let her be gone!"

But with each day I see a little improvement in his world of acceptance...emphasis on little.

  My hope is he will grow as close as he was with Payton.

Who we still miss so very much.

So while she makes herself at home...

I truly am grateful for my husband
dismissing my moment of insanity
and supporting me with our
newest family member.


For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith--and this not from yourselves,
 it is the gift of God--
Ephesians 2:8
