Shea & Mary truly are the SWEETEST people and dashing to boot, so I knew we’d have some fun together with their shoot…and my cheeks were honestly aching from smiling by the time we finished! Such a beautiful time in their lives welcoming their sweet baby boy.
I have watched sweet Mary grow up from a little freckled kiddo to this BEAUTIFUL, incredible woman over the past few decades at church. (Yes, I’m that old…moving on.) Her dad & brothers have been pastoring our wonderful church for years, and we are so blessed by them. It truly felt SO good to be able to bless their family with something [they hopefully find] beautiful, and that I could actually do it for them….does that make sense? Anyway, adore them all. 🙂
Dapper Shea owns Apolis clothing company with his brother Raan…if you’re in the mood to spruce up your hubby’s closet BEWARE! It’s addictive…and debonair…and utterly charming. Mark may or may not be sporting a new look this year and I “might’ve” tossed in a Courier Bag and Wine Tote for myself…shhhh! I can TOTALLY pull off a men’s bag, right? Right. Either way, these gentlemen have created a wonderful globally conscious company with incredible wares. Just adding to the awesomeness of this couple! Baby Parton’s being welcomed into a very gifted, loving, blessed home. And I CAN’T WAIT to meet him!
Thank you, dear Mary & Shea, for allowing me to capture a glimpse of the beauty and blessing that is your little family. You two have no idea what a wonderful influence you have on those around you…your love for each other is so evident and beautiful, your kindness is simple and genuine, and this baby you welcome will be so very loved. Praying for a smooth next few weeks leading up to the birth and for lots of sleep…lots & lots & lots of sleep for you both. Get ready! 🙂 xo
