Renewed in Hope!

I have thought about how i wanted to share EHM's birth story...well, for 12 weeks now.  And life (a toddler and a newborn) just hasn't allowed me the time i want to give to the details.  Even now, naptime is a struggle for travis, and she won't nap longer than 20 minutes today.  But i couldn't let any more time go by without thanking my photographer and friend, Linda.  She is a local photographer and graciously donates her time and talents (and some treasures) to the NILMDTS ministry.  I found her thru another friend / blogger / family from church.  I asked her if she'd be willing to take some photos of our family and friends meeting ehm.  Especially those who met our Cana during her short time here with us.  I wanted the people who met cana and walked with us thru that loss to be there to witness God's mercy and renewal in our 2nd daughter.  To not be focused on who's taking the pictures, if they got any with her..etc.  So Linda....wouldn't even let me give her a dime.  I am hoping she will let me grace her sweet babies with some of my handiwork but...

She is amazing.  These are just a few of the shots i got from her.  She gave so much of herself in these photos.  She went above and beyond, staying with us the entire day.  I'm so blessed and thankful.  I hardly think writing about her is enough...So i ask you to please consider her the next time you local readers need a photographer.  She is wonderful.

more to come...
