Mary Eloise

Welcome Mary Eloise Grace-Abounding! This sweet little girl was born into a home so very full of joy and love. Beatrice, the most gentle child that we have ever met, is so delighted to be a big sister. I loved spending my morning getting to soak in the way that this family delights in each other. 


One of my favorite moments from the session was this moment where Beatrice wanted to bring this stuffed animal to Mary Eloise. What a beautiful way for Beatrice to show her love and care for her new sister by choosing this lamb especially for her! Beatrice loves to be helpful, and tell her baby sister about all of the things that are happening around them. This sweet moment is one of many moments to come where Beatrice leads her little sister with loving-kindness. 


Jessica and Matthew are such caring and devoted parents. It is so beautiful to see how intentional they are about the details of being a mom and a dad. From the great care they have christened both their babies with such thoughtful and meaningful names, to the way they model patient and gentle love for each other and for their daughters, Matthew and Jessica are bringing such beautiful love to the world and their legacy of faith apparent and deep in these two beautiful souls they are shaping.


It is no surprise that Beatrice truly is the most gentle and kind toddler on the planet. We are so very excited to see how Mary Eloise grows and learns from her big sister and her amazing parents!
