I have a long history with this family.

I would even go so far as to say that photographing them at their family farm each year is one of MY favorite fall traditions.:)

This year they not only gave me their best ninja and pirate poses, but a tour of the new tree fort as well!

There was lots of hugging and kissing and stealing of raspberries.

cool outfits, laughter & workin’ it for the camera | minnesota family photographer

I last photographed this bunch back in 2009. FIVE YEARS AGO.  Just two short months after Jesse’s high school senior session (he’s now out of college); it’s crazy how much things can change in such a short period of time.

And the “little” one… not so little (or shy!) anymore.

Mom/Smom and Dad were full of surprises as well. :D

I loved all of the spontaneous moments.  The words of wisdom uttered by your third grader.  The silliness and laughter.  So much fun.  Thanks again for the memorable afternoon!!!

a well-timed reminder

I received a well-timed reminder.

birds

It came on the heels of my response to this IF:Table conversation card:

Think of one area of your life that seems messy or weak – how does that make you strong in Christ?

My answer felt almost like a cop out… that is, until speaking it out loud made me want to cry.  Physically, I feel like a mess.  My body is messy and weak.  This surgery brings with it changes that will affect both my business and personal life.  And I’m not very good with change.  Or the unknown.  So how does this making me strong in Christ?  Because I am trusting that He is for me, trusting He’s got my back, trusting that His plan for my life goes far beyond anything I could craft.  And that allows me to LET GO.  It helps me not to panic or fret.  It helps me to rest.

After the ladies left, I opened a gift one of them had given me [for my upcoming surgery] and among other things, it contained a bird.  I’ve shared a bit about my thing for birds HERE; it’s tied directly to the following portions of scripture from Psalm 91:

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidentally] trust!

* * * *

[Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge. His truth and faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.

* * * *

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness - trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never]. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

Reading this passage tonight seemed so meaningful after everything we discussed.  [For those wanting to go further, the commentary HERE is exquisite.]

I love seeing things laced together so beautifully.
