Chris, Emily & Jacob!

“In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future” – Alex Haley


Since it’s December, and only two weeks away from Christmas, I think it’s appropriate to recollect the first time I met Emily.  It was probably 5 or 6 years ago, when a bunch of friends in Indianapolis piled into my roommates parents mini van to drive around the city and look at Christmas lights.  We laughed, we saw beautiful lights, and we most likely listened to/sang Christmas songs before heading back for spiked egg nog and hot chocolate.  More recently than our first encounter, was last January when we all celebrated Megan [our mutual friend] and Cam’s wedding, and when baby Jacob was just a tiny bean sized being in Emily’s belly [I’ve never been pregnant, so maybe he was actually a kiwi size?!].

Lucky for me, I was able to meet up with Chris, Emily and Jacob down in Kentucky last month!  We were able to catch the very last bits of fall, and take some amazingly beautiful images in downtown New Albany.  Highlights of the shoot were definitely Jacobs awesome smile, as well as Chris saying to Emily, “Em, you should do what you do to him to make him laugh,” which then turned out to be tickles and the phrase, “Who has a poopy diaper!”  Which was hilarious.

You guys were so great, and Jacob is ADORABLE!  Can’t wait to see the little man he turns into!  Thanks for inviting me to capture your beautiful family!
