I have loved this little lady before she was even a year old. I’ve spent hours rocking her sleep,reading books, feeding her meals, and playing with her & her siblings as well as simply loving her entire family. Her dad, Mike, was the special man Nate & I asked the honor of joining us as one 8 years ago.  Mike & his amazing wife Michelle & their little girl moved to my hometown to start a local branch of a sister GCM church when I was just starting college & I just happened to know that this church was starting so I came! It was the best choice I made in my ENTIRE life. Mike was an amazing spiritual advisor, pastor, & real leader in my life for over 11 years. I respect him & Michelle more than almost anyone I know.  He was instrumental in my faith journey-endlessly wading through my dark matter, facing my past, & falling passionately in love with a personal God for the first time. He was there for ALL of it.  So even given this brief description -you now know him & his family have been crucial to who I am today.

So years have gone by since I moved away & said my sad goodbyes to my Illinois community & little do you know this little round cheeked, hide & seek, cuddly baby has grown into an amazing teenager- full of life, direction, confidence & shocking intellect. I am so impressed with her character & personality.  I am in awe of the parenting & reliance on Jesus that Mike & Michelle must have had to raise such an astounding young woman. I can only hope & pray for grace & mercy that I can raise my son the same way.

So-Michelle & I had gotten together over the summer while I was home shooting weddings & she mentioned that Gillian had a bucket list & low and behold I was on it!! Yes, that’s right- portraits by Tracy! I was THRILLED. Seriously I don’t know if I could be any more honored. So of course we arranged them right away. We had such a great time shooting this session. Gillian was an amazing combination of silly & serious.

Then last week I needed an assistant for a wedding & she volunteered, so of course she would be perfect, ladylike, kind & efficient and she was! I don’t think I’ve made a better hiring decision! Gillian is truly radiant & beautiful inside & out. I simply cannot wait to see what changes she will bring to this world.
