We just returned from nine days in Ethiopia and have finally brought home our new daughter: Violet Mariam. The emotions (and exhaustion) are overwhelming but wonderful. I will be taking a full maternity leave for Violet - 12 whole blissful weeks! No full time job and no photography either - except for a few weddings and maternity sessions. (I have a serious issue with saying "no" apparently).

You can read the whole adoption journey back in April's posts on Violet's blog. Day by day goodness, with tons of photos.

I'll be back soon with some more session previews... and this time, as a formal business! It's time to take this whole photography nonsense to the next level: Pro. As in business licenses, sales tax, website, etc. I'm nervous but confident that God has wired me for this!

Here are a few of my favorite Ethiopia images... Be back soon!
