Elisabeth Grace Stanford | Newborn

Yesterday, I got to meet sweet Elisabeth Grace Stanford for the first time. Her mother and I became friends when we both worked at the Peach Palette together – well, I say we worked. Cleve and I played while Mary Frances did most of the work. :-) She was a joy to be around, always equipped with a kind word or an ear to listen. She was engaged to the man of her dreams at the time, Will, and I knew one day they’d make the best parents.

Well, I was right. Their precious daughter Anna Lyn walked up to me as we were taking pictures and told me she had a “happy heart.” If those words coming out of the mouth of a 2-year-old don’t melt your heart, what will? Will and Mary Frances are amazing parents that above all, teach their children to love the Lord. I always enjoy my time around the Stanford & Agnew families and it was a treasure to get to capture this sweet little girl’s first photos.
