I stop and look around at what God has provided for us, and I cannot help but to be in awe. He has given me all of the desires of my heart, and to Him I am so thankful.

I think back to the 7 years that I patiently πŸ˜‰ (ha-ha) waited for Tater to be my husband. I see myself today living the dream I had always dreamed. We now have 4 wonderful blessings together. These kids give us so much joy and love. I remember the day that we were told it would be hard for us to have kids. Well, God provided for us once again. We are so blessed. Thank you God!

While we were in California, I knew that I wanted to have our family pictures done since THIS PICTURE was our most recent family photo. πŸ™‚ I seriously just googled photographers out there and found Julie with Julie Campbell Photography. Julie also has four kids, was a former teacher, and of course does photography, so I felt like I knew her already. Well, we had a blast at our session! It was a fun change for us to be on the other side of the camera.

Below is a slideshow of our session.Β Julie did an amazing job capturing our family today. It warms my heart when I look at the slideshow and see all of God’s blessings around me. Thank you Julie!

Photography and Video: By Julie Campbell Photography

special thanks to:
Julie and her husband Tim – for “freezing” the ages of our kids right now in pictures and for giving us this incredible gift.
Mom and Dad Kieser – for watching the kids on the beach so Tater and I could get our alone pics.

    Thank you for all of your comments everyone!! Your support in looking and writing means a lot!

    TS, my shirt is from Gap (this season) and the flower is a belt from Ann Taylor (last season – it can be a necklace or a belt). πŸ™‚
