You Capture: Love, Up Close

This week's You Capture was not easy because my camera currently has a broken zoom. So when Beth announced that topic, I was like, THANKS BETH... NOT. (Side note: I'm totally bringing back NOT as a response because it never ceases to be hilarious.) Although I do have a new camera coming, it's not yet here, so I had to make due with taking photos and cropping in closely.

I decided to photograph Luke, Tommy, and I wearing our shirts from Love. I chose to do this because I adore these shirts, but also because right now, as I'm typing this, Lovelyn is up and close with the babies at the orphanage in Uganda. Perhaps she's already chosen her babies and held them up close to her. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to hear about her journey.


Speaking of love, one of my favorites is celebrating a first birthday today. Won't you please go wish him a happy birthday and his mama a happy birthing day?

Gorgeous photos of gorgeous boys! And as you type, your soul is with the babies at the orphanage... your blessings in this life are returned a million-fold with the blessings you give.

Kyla said...

What sweet, sweet photos! That's a bummer about your camera, but at least you've got a replacement on the way! HOPE is a wonderful thing and it sounds like you provide a lot of it for those around you. AWESOME! ;)

Erin - how is it he has grown so quickly? I'm sure you think the same thing. Both your children are just beautiful.

I just realized Tommy is wearing the polka dotted pants I had for Joel. I heart polka dots, and Tommy looks a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e in them. :)
