{ just a few more }






( I extra heart any of the ones that include David's smile )





Note to the Photographer:
Leslie,
Words fail in an attempt to express just how much these pictures mean to me.
Taken in our very first home, with our very first baby.
So much is about to change, forever and for the better.
I am so glad and grateful we have these snapshots to document this sweet, sweet season of life.
Do you how much they mean to me, or how much I cherish, every single one one of them?
It's all I can do to keep from running to Target right now and buying up a frame for each one of them to hang up in every room of our house.

Thank you and I love you.

Chelle

( And one last picture as I try to treasure these last few days of my sweet little Jack being so snuggly and safe, tucked away inside..knowing we won't be a package deal for much longer now. )

Oh my goodness! I just stopped by and look at all of these. They are absolute perfection. It is amazing to see the joy of your family and your home captured on film.

Sweet lady, it is such a blessing to watch God's plan for you unfold. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Oh, Chelle, these are precious. You all are beautiful together. And your home is so lovely, too. I have NO IDEA how you're going to sort thru these to choose your "wall-worthy" ones. Cause Leslie is, indeed, one talented, gifted photographer!! :-)

oh so precious...such loveliness...shear LOVEliness! i don't know how you pick a favorite...yep...you shouldn't have to...frame them all! a collage of frames of different sizes of them all would be such a priceless addition to that new place you must be dreaming of {your house is still on the market right?} and then when the little man makes his debut you can mix in his gorgeous shots!!

Congratulations on little Jack! He is beautiful - and how fun that he was born on May 1st! Hope you are doing well and enjoying this sweet, sweet time!

AndiMae said...

Finally catching up on some blog posts- my internet hasn't been working very well lately...

I can't get over how beautiful these pictures are! Seriously amazing! They capture the spirit of your sweet little family so perfectly. Leslie you are awesome! I would have the hardest time choosing a favorite too! Although that last one of you and David is probably my very favorite- it was so special to see you too together that day. To see in person how much he adores you. I love that Leslie got all that. I could go on and on...

I am so glad you have these! And I seriously can't wait to catch up soon...

I love you, dear friend!
