Growing Up!

Jenn says thanks to Lani, Nick, and Lawson for allowing her to visit and document the now9-month-old Lawson in the comfort of his own home. Jenn was blessed to be one of the first people to meet Lawson when he was born last September in Baton Rouge. She documented him at just one day old in the hospital.

“It is wonderful to watch children grow up,” says Jenn.

Outside Pictures Are More FUN!

Traveling and Family Time

Through all her travels this past month Jenn found some time to catch up with family and friends. Meet the ever-growing Evan Robert, Chris and Jessica’s son! You met him a few months ago as a newborn, and here he is with my Great Aunt Monie, who lives in Des Plaines, IL. She is kickin’ it at 93 years old — the oldest member of our family, and Evan is the youngest. “It was refreshing to share some time with family while hanging out in Chicago to shoot a wedding,” says Jenn.
