Ephraim’s First Day of Kindergarten

Happy start of school for many of you with littles entering back into the classroom this year! It’s been a difficult 2020 for many of you navigating school online. I am thrilled that Ephraim is able to be in person and that their school is taking precautions to be safe still while together.

However, I am still in shock that my first born is starting kindergarten! We are so proud of you little, bug!

Baby Bree

Puyallup, WA

Bree Willow was born last month on August 3rd. She was quite happy in her momma’s tummy, being a solid two weeks late! But she made her debut and what a beauty she is! Bree was born 7lbs 11oz, and 21 inches long and well loved. Her mom has been one of my oldest friends, and I am so thrilled for Kay and Ryan as they enter into new territory as parents with this gorgeous little girl! They are doing an incredible job and it is so fun to see this stage of life. Welcome to the world baby Bree! I am so excited to watch you grow over the years!

Baby Sage

Seattle, WA

Welcome to the world beautiful Sage! The arrival of a new baby is always so exciting; a baby born during the covid-19 season seems even more special. They represent a promise of new life, hope and love. These tiny little humans continue to give us joy in unprecedented times. Sage was nothing short of that with her calm and peaceful presence. Her big blue eyes gleam with new life and wonder. Her family has anxiously awaited her arrival and even though big sis had a little harder time, she sweetly doted on her too. What a precious girl you are, little Sage! We all already love you so!

Abram Turns 3!

Seattle, WA

This year has been wild – it’s our second Covid-19 birthday in our family. Sadly, it means a very small party with just us, but we still have a lot of love to give this little boy! Abram requested a Paw Patro themed party, which is fitting since this summer he is either naked 24/7 or determined to wear his Marshall costume if he deems clothes necessary. I am so blessed to call this little joy my son. You make all of us laugh each day, you have a compassionate heart and a mighty will! We are so privileged to be your parents, watch you grow and love you in the process. Happy Birthday, Abe, we love you so much!

Ephraim Turns 4

Seattle, WA

My first born turns four today! Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus, we had to for-go a birthday party. So instead, I’ve been trying to find more responsible social distancing and creative ways to celebrate E. One of the ways, was this – we did a fun photoshoot with color powders! His little bro, didn’t want to miss out on the fun so, Abram snuck in on these photos too.

One of my favorite moments this week with Ephraim was when we went to go pick out a gift for him. He got to choose and he picked out a pretty small item. I asked him if he wanted to get another gift, and he told me, “Mom, I am ok. I have a lot of toys already and I want to save these for other kids.” MELT MY HEART. I am so proud to be this kids mom. He is so compassionate, generous and loving. I am excited for this next year to watch you grow little E and its an honor to be your momma. You make this world shine brighter! I love you!

Baby Archer

Gig Harbor, WA

A few years ago I shot newborn photos for the Chang Family when their daughter Madeleine was born. Julia and Lee just welcomed their third child, Archer to the family a little less than a month ago! So I took a trip to their home in Gig Harbor to photograph Archer and their family while relatives were visiting. I had such a fun time catching up, seeing the growth of their kids and meeting little Archer! I just L-O-V-E newborns! There is nothing like a fresh baby and I was so privileged be part of their day last week. Welcome to the world baby Archer!

Little Abram is 6 Months!

Seattle, WA

My baby is growing up. This milestone was complete with two bottom teeth popping out, almost being able to sit by himself with out toppling over, big giggles, lots of spit, his first airplane ride, two trips out of the state, lots of push ups, transition to his crib, sleeping in the same room as his big brother and is he a chatter box. I just can’t even imagine what it’s going to be like when real words come out. He will be one of those kids that have a question for EVERYTHING. His rolls are kind of starting to fade and it’s making me really emotional. Stop time. Stay little! Why do you grow up so quick?!

My Abe, Abe the babe, baby Abe-ie, Abram Lynn – I love you so!

Lin Family Mini Shoot

Seattle, WA

Piper has become a good friend and role-model when it comes to motherhood. She and Gary have four beautiful little children. Her littlest is a little younger than Ephraim, which has made for some fun play dates. This past year has been so fun to get to know their adorable little family more. Last December we ventured to the UW library on a foggy morning and around the common ground to do a quick mini-shoot – because how else can you keep young ones attention for more than 20 minutes? Good job Lin family!

Abram Newborn

I am very late to the game (3 months) to post the newborn photos of our new baby boy – Abram Lynn who was born August 6th.

Names have power. There is something to a name that gets to the core of who we are. A name comes loaded with meaning, history and the bestowers hopes for who they are naming. Trevor and I have worked hard to pray, seek the Lord and discern who we believe each of our sons original designs. By original design we mean discovering how God has intended our little one to be before we have met him or her face-to-face. We believe God forms all little one’s innate with personality and possibilities that we can discover while they are still in the womb. So with this we came to Abram Lynn for our new boys name.

Abram – Early on in the story of the bible we are introduced to one of the key figures…Abram or later known as Abraham. Before God’s people were a multi-ethnic global family they were a nation (Israel) and before this they were a family line stemming from the person of Abram. When Abram steps on the scene the world is a mess. Rebellion, destruction and sin had been the dominant theme in the early chapters of Genesis as God’s creation attempted to “make a name for ourselves (Gen. 11:4)” apart from their creator. But out of nowhere in the midst of rebellion came on the scene one who would faithfully respond to God’s call.

We do not know much about Abram’s backstory before Genesis 12 but nonetheless his response to God is nothing but remarkable. God gives Abram a call to “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed (Gen. 12:1-3).” Out of nowhere Abram is given a call to leave all he has ever known with a promise that God would be the one to personally “make your name great (Gen. 12:2)” and that ALL people on earth will be blessed through this man’s call. With this all we are told is that “Abram went, as the Lord had told him (Gen. 12:4).” We aren’t let into his internal wrestling or how he came to the decision to go but that he went. And with this decision of faith came a decision that would have ramifications for all people and would cement Abram/Abraham’s legacy as one of the greats of our faith.

Lynn – Lynn was Trevor’s late father’s first name. His father would pass away dramatically a month before Trevor was to start his freshman year of college as he would quickly develop pneumonia that became septic, attacking many of his vital organs and eventually taking his life. Abram’s birth is a little more than seven years since his father’s passing.

Trevor’s dad was the hardest worker he knew. Growing up with his dad passing away when he was young and his mom an immigrant from Japan who barely knew any english, he had to fight and earn much of what he had in this life. His work ethic came out as he walked on at WSU for football, paid his own way through college to get his degree in Landscape architecture, started his own architecture firm at 27 (that he would run until the day he died), coached and never missed one sporting event of this three sons and made tremendous sacrifices to get his sons through college so that they could have better starts then he did. Trevor’s dad was/is one of our hero’s and one of Trevor’s greatest inspirations. And with this we saw it fitting to name our son Abram Lynn.

We do not know what the future holds for little Abram Lynn but one thing we do know is that he carries the name and legacy of two great men who paved the way for many to discover the fullness of life in the human experience. Our prayer is that all of his days he would carry these names as a part of his identity and that he would even become half the men these two were….because even that would mean he turned out a great man.
