Do you know what I love about having a photographer in the house?
Moments captured in pictures.
I don’t know what it is, that Hannah caught. I love the look of surprise on Samuel’s face coupled with the remnants of cinnamon bread. My favorite part? That Samuel grasps my hand even while I hold him. There’s beauty and happiness wrapped in the simplicity of holding hands.
Can’t tell that I love him, can you?
(or that I have many, many, many freckles…..)
I know I’ve written about being thankful a great deal lately. The posture of my heart yearns to be filled with gratitude — not overwhelm, or anxiety, or want. Somehow when I look at this moment captured in time I’m reminded, once again, of the blessings in my lap. It’s all too easy to lose the beauty in motherhood and children, and sometimes it takes a simple, yet beautiful, black and white picture to bring back the clarity.

I’m grateful. So grateful.
Your Hannah is very talented with her camera!
So, so sweet…and we have a Samuel, too! :o)
Hannah is so talented… what a beautiful picture!
Samuel looks so mesmerized too…love it. I can see the love all over your face. Thanks for sharing the simple at this time when I feel so overwhelmed.
What a beautiful photo. Hannah captured a keepsake treasure for you always to remember your Samuel when he was small.
I love black and white photos. They are timeless. Beautiful!
Sam is sooo cute! His eyes are just gorgeous-it’s crazy! I can tell you love him, for sure:-)
Lovely thoughts! Lovely photo! Thank you for sharing!
Couldn’t see any freckles. This is an amazing photo!
What a blessing to know that the Lord is always with us! Praying in Seattle!
Psalms 23:4-6 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
