Alex & Evie engaged!

I have known Alex and Evie as a couple for at least two years.  It has been a blessing with every moment in their presence as their love for each other is contagious.  Thus, their love for the Lord is even greater.  Their hearts are so big for others and want everyone to receive that beautiful Gift they both did - the love of Jesus Christ whom died on the cross for our salvation.  I can always feel His presence when I am around Alex & Evie or as individuals.  

I have known Evie and her sweet family for five years now.   Her family has been such a blessing to our family in so many ways.  Evie is full of personalities and such a great dancer.  She is very down to earth and so goofy.  I always laugh when I'm around her.  Thus, I always enjoy our serious and meaningful conversations when Evie shares her big heart.  Evie started her own business on the side while attending school to help women with make up and hair for occasions such as weddings.  When Alex came into the picture, it was goofiness to another level.  As a couple, they can always make anyone laugh with their genuine humor.  I also enjoy hearing Alex's testimony in his journey as he seeks and find the Lord.  

I was so excited for them both as I heard about their proposal and so honored that they asked me to take their engagement photos.  This photoshoot was so much fun as they were so natural, quirky, and cute.  They were romantic and sweet at the same time.  It was not hard for me to capture this overwhelming romance between them.  Thank you Alex and Evie for reminding me to never fall out of love for without it we would be miserable.  Also, thank you for reminding me to love life as I am so blessed to have the greatest LOVE of all time and I shall smile and laugh for not knowing how doing so could lead someone to finding the Lord.  

If you or your loved ones are looking for a great hair and make up artist for your special day, look up Beloved with Evie Doan.  

meet Emilyn

I'm about 3 months late on posting this photoshoot of sweet Emilyn.  I believe she was about 10 days in these photos.  My sister in Christ, Esther, gave birth to Emilyn in water!  Isn't that awesome?  Also, she did everything natural!  What an amazing mom!  Emilyn came out so healthy and beautiful just like her momma.  She was a very easy model during the shoot.  Emilyn slept the whole time which made it so easy for me to pose her.  After three months, Emilyn has now gained weight and looks even cuter!

Photos of Esther's maternity, waiting for Emilyn, are HERE as well.

waiting for Nia

Maj Bass (short for Majaliwa) contacted me two days before my trip to VA for a maternity session.  I didn't know how this would work since I had lots to prepare before my trip and I didn't pack yet (yes, procrastination isn't good..I know).  Because Maj was already 36 weeks, I didn't want Maj to miss this shoot.  I was able to squeeze them in and they were so great to come to my location for the shoot.  In hindsight, I was so glad I made it possible because this family was so sweet.  They have such handsome boys that were so excited to meet their little sister.  It was a very cold and windy day, yet they cooperated so well.  There wasn't any whine or complaints from them except smiles.  Then the last part of the shoot was with Maj and her husband.  Mr. Bass was just too funny.  I can see the love and chemistry between them.  I can tell this baby girl will be so blessed to have such awesome parents and sweet brothers who love her before they even met her.  

I also found out that Maj is the owner of Pooters Diapers!  check them out if you are thinking of using cloth diapers.  

Merry Christmas!

May you find the time to relax with your loved ones this holiday and together celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  TeamJellyBeans would like to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday and a great new year to come.  This year the Trans has an expected blessing that we have been dying to share for the past two months.  The hint is in the balloons.

Merry Christmas my friends!  more photos on

meet KarisAnn White

We met the Whites when we first moved into the seminary.  We needed help carrying a large dinning table downstairs to our buyer so my husband knocked their door and met Blake and Alicia.  They have two sons and waiting for their daughter to arrive.  Alicia did an amazing job with the apartment and she was so sweet to give us a tour.  The Whites are the sweetest family we could be neighbors with.  I found out that her oldest son, Josiah, is in Milli's class.  Milli talks about Josiah all the time and it has been so convenient to let her out to play with him since we could see her from our balcony.  Unfortunately, they are moving... tomorrow!  I'm so sadden by this because we are losing a very sweet neighbor.  I think Milli will miss Josiah the most.  I just haven't told her the news yet.

KarisAnn White was about 10 days old for this photoshoot.  She was the cutest little peanut to work with.  She was sleeping the whole time and never cried!  We were able to do all sort of poses and dolled her up in every way.  Her brothers woke up from their naps and we were able to take some shots with the cute siblings.  I gotta say, these boys are so adorable I almost forgot they are boys.  They listen to their mom and did whatever I asked.  My favorite shots have always been mommy and baby in most of my photoshoots.  Once again, my favorites are of Alicia and KarisAnn.  Alicia is just naturally beautiful so she really made the photos amazing.  

Hope you'll enjoy baby KarisAnn and her sweet family.  We will miss y'all dearly!  May the Lord protect and provide in your journey ahead.
