Cheyenne // Senior 2016

This one time I took nearly 600 photos of Cheyenne & there wasn't a single one where she didn't look gorgeous. 

So, yeah, narrowing these down was nearly impossible!

Not only is she gorgeous, but also super sweet. AND, she trekked around Bald Rock barefoot, balancing on rocks just so we could get some good pictures. I like her, a lot! 

I'm so glad she chose me to do her senior portraits!

Congratulations, Cheyenne!

I hope you have a wonderful senior year!

Hannah & Jorden

The biggest thank you goes out to Hannah & Jorden for being my models because I wanted to take photos in this beautiful field!

These turned out to be some of my favorite photos ever. 

The light. The flowers. The beautiful girls. 

Grayson Blayne Hacker

September 8, 2015

This day changed everything.

Grayson's arrival has been anticipated for a while now, but he surprised everyone when he came just a wee bit early.

I got a text from Kiffen in the middle of the night / early Monday morning (September 7th) saying, "My water just broke." Of course, I didn't see it until almost 9 a.m. & immediately called when I did. I then proceeded to run through the house & shout to my husband, "WE'RE HAVING A BABY TODAY!"

 I made my way to the hospital later that day & things were progressing slowly. The Doc came in & said he expected Grayson to come around 3 a.m. So, I reluctantly headed home & told Brandon to call me when things were getting close. I woke up at 3 a.m., no alarm, no phone call, no texts-- Grayson still wasn't here. It had been over 24 hours now so I, along with everyone else, was getting pretty anxious. I made my way back to sleep & woke up to a phone call at 7:50 a.m. from Brandon saying they were taking Kiffen back for delivery. 

I made it from the bed to the hospital by 8:05 a.m. Yep, I was ready to see this baby. 

Grayson Blayne arrived at 8:14 a.m. he weighed 7 lbs 7 ounces & measured 19.5 inches long. He was perfect.

I'll never forget the moment I saw Brandon push that little cart around the corner full of emotions & this little guy lying there looking just like this Daddy. 

Witnessing my best friend become a Mother has been so rewarding. I was talking with her about how much I loved him & she said "I couldn't love any on person more in my life!" But, she didn't have to tell me that, I already knew by the look on her face when she held him in her arms. 

"Time can't fade it, a thief can't take it-- all my love for you. You are the best part of me."

Congratulations, Kiffen & Brandon!
