This family holds a special place in my heart.  Not only are they awesome neighbors and wonderful friends, their youngest daughter is particularly spunky and special.  She was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome over 3 years ago, and will be heading in for her 3rd heart surgery in just a few weeks. Please be in prayer for their entire family, the surgical team, and especially sweet Brooklyn as they prepare for surgery and a long road of recovery. You can read more about her story here.

Today, on what would have been my niece Ivy’s 4th birthday, I am thankful for God’s grace and compassion. These photos are of my nephew Findley, who was born last summer at just 26 weeks and who is now a healthy 8-month-old. God is good.

These twin brothers are so much fun, and I find it so interesting that they have completely different interests, personalities, and styles. I’ve enjoyed photographing their family many times over the past 7 years, and I love that I’ve been able to capture their unique characteristics and their special brotherly bond.

(And isn’t their pup the cutest?!)
