Being invited to document the arrival of a new life into the world is one of the greatest privileges I get to have as a photographer.  It is such a humbling experience to be in the presence of something so much greater than you.

This Friday, I helped welcome to the world baby Levi Sparrow Sage.  I met Angie and Wes early that morning and began to document their journey as they became parents to a new baby boy.  They walked into the hospital knowing that when you walk out days later, they’d be holding a new life in your arms.  That in itself is just mind boggling, isn’t it?

Angie had a scheduled C-section and both her and Wes were nervous and a little scared of what to expect but they had each other and having the person you love by your side is all you need to feel comforted and secure.

Baby arrived healthy and strong, weighing in at 7 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 inches long.   Angie was so brave and strong the entire time and never once whined.  Once she held her baby, she looked at him in awe.  So much is in store for this little man.  So many beautiful memories were made that day and yet so many more memories are to come.  There will be moments of pure joy, wonder, and laughter.  There will be sleepless nights and countless diaper changes.  Sometimes there may be tears and exhaustion.  But, most of all there will be love, unconditional love for this precious new baby boy who is so lucky to be born to two amazing people!  Two people who love each other, who will protect him, who will teach him, and who will love him beyond words.

Congratulations Angie & Wes!  Thank you for having me document the birth of your baby boy.  Much love to you both! xo, Jessie

Happy Friday!  Now that we are pretty much officially done with summer, we’re totally getting excited about cooler weather and all that it brings with it – boots, hot chocolate, pumpkin spice everything, and family portraits!  Once a year I offer fall & winter family sessions and I’m really looking forward to what this season has to offer.   I just love meeting families and children and capturing their special bond and personalities.  If you’re interested in having some beautiful family portraits in a fun natural setting in and around Las vegas, I’d love to hear from you!  Let’s make it happen.

These long distance love stories we’ve been getting lately are just too awesome!  Today’s long distance romance comes from Melissa + Mark.  In the years that they’ve been dating, they’ve never resided in the same state.  Currently, Melissa is in Vegas, while Mark is stationed in Northern California.  There’s is a love story filled with lots of skype dates and long drives and plane trips to visit each other.  Love knows no boundaries.  We can’t wait for their San Francisco wedding next summer when these two won’t be apart again!  But for now, we got to hang out with them for an afternoon in Mt. Charleston escaping the heat and basking in the pretty light!  We documented Melissa & Mark together in love, being silly, laughing a ton, and of course lots of kisses and snuggles!  xoxo

Confession: I am a bit obsessed with Instagram.  If you follow me on Instagram, you already know this!  I post a photo at least once a day!  I post a ton of photos of my kiddos, my food (mostly breakfast ), and running shoe selfies (lots of these!).  I also every once in awhile, post behind the scenes photos of us shooting a wedding or sneak peeks from our latest wedding and engagement sessions, but I’m afraid these get lost in between photos of  protein shakes and my kids being silly.

So today, I am really excited to share our new Instagram feed, dedicated to all things wedding photography!  You can follow us on behind-the-scenes looks of us shooting a wedding, get notified of the latest blog posts, and of course, there will be lots of pretty weddings to look at!  I’d love it if you followed us:  http://instagram.com/theemerics!!! And if you really really want to see photos of my breakfasts, you can totally follow me on my personal Insta too ;)
