anna & clara

I just finished a photo session with my sister's six month-old baby girl, Clara.

While in between outfit changes, my sister scooped up her precious, girly one to comfort her.

This is how I see my sister.

A loving mother.
Tenderly caring for her little ones.
Overflowing with thankfulness for each of them.

You know, as I look around at the blessings in my life, I am so grateful for God's good gifts to me.

But, I can hardly express in words what I feel when I ponder what He's done in my sister's life - the doting husband He's given her, the three, precious children that toddle along behind her, the many gifts and talents she shares with others, her gentle spirit - just a handful of God's blessings on her.

I love her. I have loved her my whole life.

And, I love that God has blessed her so.
