Goodness. It's been awhile since I wrote a blog post. BUT I had to jump on here to share photos from my recent shoot with the Goble family and their newest addition - JADEN.
Alli & Jonathan are dear friends of mine from home. While in college, they hosted a college group over the summer. During that time, they opened their home up to 30+ college kids. They made coffee and dinner for us; they provided a place for us to form a community and grow in our faith. It was there that my faith grew in depth and I saw God work in unbelievable ways. I witnessed answers to prayers, the birth of lifelong friendships, and miracles. My time in their home changed me and I am forever grateful for the work God did during those summers.
Alli & Jonathan showed me what it looks like to live a life of hospitality and service. I saw their marriage and the way they loved each other knowing that's what I wanted one day. They gave me a glimpse of the goodness of marriage and what God can do through a couple devoted to Him. I saw them walk out their faith day after day. Alli & Jonathan invested in me, prayed with me, and spoke truth into my life when I needed it most.
So when I heard they were adopting a sweet baby, I knew this child would be placed into the most gentle, grace filled, spirit-led home. I knew he'd be prayed over and shown the goodness of God. I knew he'd be supported and encouraged. I was OVERJOYED when Alli reached out and asked me to come capture their new family. Jaden is such a cutie!! I couldn't get over his funny facial expressions!! This sweet boy was and is an answer to so many prayers for Alli + Jonathan.
Please enjoy these beautiful photographs of the Goble family and join me in celebrating Jaden's arrival!
