Hi & welcome to our little corner of the web! My name is Brantley and this is the place where I share about life, adoption, ministry and being a mom! I am a wife to an incredibly patient man and a mother to a beautiful little girl who was brought into our family through adoption! I love to document life through my lens and share them with you here! My husband and I started a non-profit ministry called Voices 4 the Voiceless back in 2011... and we are currently working to build a babies home in Uganda, Africa!

    Most recently, I said goodbye to my job as a full-time photographer to focus on my family & ministry. And in June of 2014, we will be expecting a baby girl! God has used us in BIG ways already, and we look forward to seeing the path He continues to reveal for us. Follow us as we venture out on this amazing journey the Lord called us on!

Feeding Fun!

We started introducing baby food on Friday!  Lets just say… its been a HIT!  So far she’s had squash and today she tried green beans for the first time! She loved them both!  :)

Feeding time is entertainment in our house!  And we’re loving every minute!!!

Until then… Brantley

A Zoo Kind of Day

We had fun… ALL 4 of us at the zoo today!  Its always nice when daddy is off work and we’re able to enjoy fun times like this!  :) We all had a great time together!

Because of some zoo maintenance this morning… they were not doing horse rides.  But they let Katherine Grace pet one of the horses!

What a fun Monday with the family!  :)

Until then… Brantley

Happy 5 Months Sweet Girl

I am speechless!  Today I woke up and really hit me how incredibly fast time is flying by.  I truly cannot believe this baby girl is 5 months TODAY!  Yep… just 5 months ago I was being admitted to have a csection to deliver this special girl.  It wasn’t at all I pictured my pregnancy going – much less my delivery… but in the end, my baby girl was safe and wrapped in my arms by 2:43pm!  Annalise Kate, what a blessing you are to me and your daddy!  We love you beyond all words, and I am truly grateful for the little miracle you are!

In celebration {haha}, Annalise tried her first “real” food tonight!  Squash!!  Lets just say it was a HUGE hit!  So much so that she screamed when we attempted to put the jar away.  ;)

Mommy loves my sweet goose!

Until then… Brantley

Pumpkin Patch 2014

We had a blast this morning with our girls at the pumpkin patch!  This time last year we had just found out we were expecting!  So what a joy to have both our girls in our arms this year!!!

Annalise will be 5 months old tomorrow… YES, TOMORROW!  Where, oh where, has the time gone?

Despite her face… she LOVED riding the horse!!!

Gets me every time… can’t get over how much this child looks like me! ha

What a fun day!

Until then… Brantley

Happy Fall Ya’ll!

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Fall weather (if you’re in the south like us)!  I know we are!

In other news… this little peanut was 21 weeks yesterday!!!!

Oh that look!

Until then… Brantley
