our family || captured



 (yes, i often lie down in hay)


i can't even tell you guys how wonderful my life in minnesota is. not only is this place rustic and beautiful, but the incredible people here that surround me could never be replaced. one of those special people is my good friend sara. i am forever grateful for her friendship and generous heart. she took these stunning photos of our family and she did the most beautiful job of capturing this very special time in our lives (the transition from a family of 4 to a family of 5). these photos represent so much to me about this exciting change and i am so glad she talked me into doing some shots of me alone. despite the fact that it was one of the coldest days she managed to get many intimate shots that i will treasure forever. everyone should be so lucky to have such friends - treasure the people around you and embrace change!

Shaynah, these are so beautiful! It's obvious that your family was very comfortable with Sara; they all look so natural and real. Your belly pics will be treasures for Baby 3!
