Sansom // Ridgecrest Maternity

This post took me a while to get the nerve up to write. The beauty and majesty of God's timing is often lost on me but not this time. The Sansom family was the FIRST family ever to step in front of my lens. And little Miss Mairin was where little brother Jack is now, right in mommys tummy.

Caitlin and AJ trusted me back then and they have continued to trust me throughout these past two years. They have been in front of my lens at least 7 times including their family and AJ's extended family. The parallels of my growth as a photographer along with their growth as a family is something that really hit me when we met up for their session. They were the first family I photographed in Ridgecrest and they will also be the last. The timing of it all is so bittersweet. 

Our friendship has also grown over these past two years. From the weekly game nights, small group discussions, birthday parties, volunteering, moving and dinners, we have witnessed each others lives grow and change and blossom. I am sooooo going to miss walking into their house and have Mairin scream, "PWOLE!!! SY-MIN!!!" with a huge smile on her face. I have loved watching that little girl grow up and I can't wait to see baby Jack and all of the amazingness that these amazing people will encounter in the future. We may both be moving out of Ridgecrest, but location aside, the Sansom family will always be a part of our family as well. Love you guys!

Jessica and Nathan arrived in Ridgecrest right around a year ago. He was hired as the youth pastor at our church and they made the long trek out from Louisiana to California ready to make an impact in this small town.

It's been a blessing to get to know them both over the course of this past year and when the news broke that they were expecting, the excitement and nervousness was palpable. We were there when they had their gender reveal and saw the sparkle in both of their eyes when they found out it was going to be a girl. Little River Rose will be loved big. 

I'm sad I probably won't be here in town when she arrives but I am so happy to have been able to be a small part of their family memories by capturing this special time during her pregnancy. Nathan and Jessica, you will be great parents and I can't wait to see the plans God has in store for your family!
