Scott & Jaclyn | Maternity

This has been a year of babies. We counted up the number of women we knew who were pregnant during 2016 and I think we got up to around 37. O.o That's a lot of kids.

It's so much fun, though, watching your friends marry and then become parents. What's also fun is taking pictures of each new stage in their lives, from engagement, to wedding, to kids. Jaclyn no longer lives in the area since she married Scott, but I'm so glad the timing worked out that she was up here for a baby shower and we fit in some photos!

Scott & Jaclyn | Wedding

Shooting a dear friend's wedding is such a fun experience. I'm always happy to just attend friends' weddings but there is something special about getting to spend the whole day with them, in all the biggest moments of the wedding day. Though I haven't known Jaclyn as long as some of my other friends, we've grown pretty close in the last few years and it was a very special privilege to photograph a day for which we had been praying so much!

It was a gorgeous November day and such fun seeing all the literary details incorporated into the decor!

Thanks to Joanna Kay Photography for helping me out with this wedding!!
