The Awesome Zietlow Family

I sure adore this family.

They recently acquainted me to their town of Fullerton and showed me all their little hang out spots.  I love shoots like this because I mainly serve to document what they already do on a regular basis and for me that makes the pictures all the more meaningful and legitimate. 

This family radiates joy, fun, honesty and closeness that feels rare these days.  I’m so thankful for how they love and serve and are a great witness to those around them.

Love you Z fam!

Lemster Maternity Shoot

I know it sounds odd, but I truly enjoy change.  I believe that transitions have an unparallelled way of revealing where our hearts are and where God still has loads of work to do.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but marriage and motherhood are the primary ways that God reveals this need for growth in me.  And there are few things greater than walking out those transitions and changes in a community of friends and family that are encouraging, supportive, loving, honest and helpful. 

This beautiful mama-to-be has been one of my sweetest, honest, most hilarious, trusted confidants and she can speak truth to my soul in ways few friends can.  She has walked through and talked me into and out of many wild adventures.  I love her for that and I am beyond joyful to begin yet another wild life stage with this lady.  We spent hours talking about how the idea of us as mothers was absolutely hilarious and now, many years later, we have the honor and privilege of raising little girls together.

Brett and Katie, you two are going to be awesome parents and I cannot wait to meet the amazing Penelope Joy.
