Welcome Elise!
March 6th, 2017

Oh Elise. When I met you, I had this odd feeling of looking at a dream realized. Holding you felt like past, present and future all at once. You, little one, have been longed for, hoped for, prayed for, and now you are here. There are no words.

I am full of joy over you, kid. Full. Of. Joy.

welcome to the world felix
February 15th, 2017

Oh Felix. You are goodness and light, fresh skin and wrinkly feet, wise eyes and chubby cheeks. You entered into this crazy world and brought with you the breath of the God. Your mother birthed you into this life with such strength and hopefulness, love and wisdom. There are really no words for what witnessing such a sacred event was like – except that I am grateful to have been there. I am grateful for you. I can’t wait to watch you grow.

these two sisters | a project in 52 weeks
January 10th, 2017

“I love you. I’ll never stop.”

-Ann Brashares

Remember the beginning of this little project? January 2014 marked the beginning. And, now, for now, we are at its end. The two of you have requested that I stop taking these weekly photos. Apparently, you have better things to do than be photographed by me. But, there will still be photographs. I am always a photographer. It’s how I see you. It’s how I feel you. It’s how I share you. There will still be photographs. Our weekly project will end for now. But these moments of sisterhood will continue. They’ll never stop. The best gift I ever gave to you was each other. All my love.
