They are so in love and filled with SO much joy! I mean, c’mon, Jacque is laughing all. the. time. It’s one of the many reasons I adore this girl – she’s pure joy! Their day was filled with so many beautiful heirloom pieces and significance could be found in every detail… right down to her grandma’s lipstick and the pins in her bouquet. They lost this sweet grandma earlier this year and she was one of Jacque’s most favorite people on the planet – Jacque, Erich and their families truly pulled in the things that mattered most to them.

We’ve been friends since the day we both moved into Miller Hall our freshman year of college and I adore this girl. We thought it would be fun to capture her and her kiddos just hanging out at home, doing what they do on a regular Saturday afternoon. So many belly laughs, games, hugs and kisses were to be had. I loved capturing them!

I know this is a birth story, and I hope Ethan’s story is treasured for many generations, but I can’t help but talk about Ali & Darrin… The love and respect that these two have for each other is undeniable and absolutely worth noting. I’m honored to have them as friends in our lives and be an example to us, as well as, many others! Their dedication to each other shows strongly in these images. I hope Ethan will grow up to have this kind of love in his life, too! He has got such amazing parents to lead him by example. Happy birthday sweet Ethan – you are loved by so many! So thankful you are here!
