Baby Grace is here!

Kai & Yesenia are dear fellow church members and friends here in Hampton I have loved getting closer to this past year. I met Sen initially at a biblical counseling conference that I went to with a group from HRF in February 2018, even while I still lived in MD, before I had decided to relocate to Hampton Roads!! (Let’s just say that conference and my time with those HRF members was instrumental in God moving me here!)

Watching God work in the lives of Kai & Sen has been such a gift. Through the beginning days of little Grace being found in Sen’s belly to her arrival on Christmas Eve 2018, I have watched this couple trust and worship Jesus Christ and His plan for their blended family. I love you guys and am so thankful for how your example of clinging to God’s Word and God’s people in daily life encourages me continually!

Kai deploys to South Korea in just a few short weeks, so doing this newborn+family photoshoot for them last weekend was so sweet to me, knowing these images will be held tightly in the months to come. I love you guys so much and am excited for how your beautiful family of FIVE will continuing growing and showing me and others how to follow Christ daily in the grace He gives!

Adelaide Rose

CNU is currently on its Fall Break, which means I’m home loving a long weekend of sleep, homecooked meals, and late night craziness with the siblings. (Being one of seven kids, there’s never a dull moment here in the Dean household!) I’ve also taken this time off from school to schedule a few portrait sessions. Today, I had the pleasure of photographing one of my best CNU friend — Abby Hogge’s — niece, Adelaide. Abby has always said that her sister would love for me to take pictures of Adelaide, and this Fall Break seemed like a great opportunity for me to do so! Adelaide was ADORABLE, and kept me smiling. Enjoy a few of my favorites!

The lovely family, with another one on the way in November!
