“Lilly Faith Everett has passed gently into the loving arms of Jesus. She was born silent into this world on April 26th, 2017, but made a loud and joyful noise when she entered through heaven’s gates. She was diagnosed before birth with Trisomy 18. Lilly is the daughter of Rumley and Crystal Everett and the little sister of Brailey. She is a true miracle in that she fought very hard to remain here on Earth with us. She has opened the eyes of many to how precious life is and where our focus should be.”

These words from precious Lilly’s obituary sit heavy on my heart, yet ring so true. She is truly an angel, and her and her family have inspired and given new life to so many in our community. Though hearts are heavy, there is still a peace knowing she is in the arms of Jesus. She has given many people a new and heaven-minded perspective, and has reminded us to live grateful and to live a life of love.

It was Jesus’ desire that heaven come to earth, and sweet Lilly Faith has surely brought a piece of heaven to earth.

“Whether now or then
Death is not my end
I know Heaven waits for me
Though the road seems long
I’ll never walk alone
And I got all I need to sing
I know You love me
I know You found me
I know You saved me
And Your grace will never fail me
And while I’m waiting
I’m not waiting
I know Heaven lives in me ” – Hillsong Worship, As It Is In Heaven

Her parents and big sister are as special and precious as they come. They are strong and have such a beautiful faith, yet this is still such a difficult time. Please keep this dear family in your thoughts and prayers.

It was an honor to capture these memories for them. And huge thanks to the sweet and talented Brandy Lee Jefferson and Mary Carolyn Walker for doing Crystal’s hair and makeup. And Crystal sweet Mom, Debra for helping us with the session as well.

“Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered—how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath….And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.” (Psalm 39:4-5, 7)

“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.” (Isaiah 26:3-4)

North Carolina First Birthday at Home Baby Photos | Greenville NC Lifestyle Photographer - Dana Jo PhotographyPINIMAGENorth Carolina First Birthday at Home Baby Photos | Greenville NC Lifestyle Photographer - Dana Jo PhotographyPINIMAGENorth Carolina First Birthday at Home Baby Photos | Greenville NC Lifestyle Photographer - Dana Jo PhotographyPINIMAGE

Happy First Birthday to this adorable Southern belle! Sweet Georgia is as charming and lovely as can be! We did photos in her family’s beautiful home, and you could tell she was in her element! I love photographing little ones at home, since they are so familiar with their surroundings they are just fully themselves and we can capture some fun little personality shots! She was dressed to the nines in her gorgeous gown from Melissa Jane Designs, and her cake smash outfit carried by the Graceful Goose in Washington! This darling girl sure knew what to do with her cake too — I loved her cake smashing faces! Too cute! Her sweet parents treated me to a lovely afternoon and rode me around  their awesome property in their ATV (Georgia loves to go for a ride, so that was a great distraction to keep her happy for photos for a while!).  Definitely a fun photo session, and we were able to capture a lot of sweet moments of their precious baby girl turning one! Thank you again, Ashley and Jay!

(Also, Ashley just opened up a Maltida Jane Boutique in Washington, be sure to check her out: http://www.matildajaneclothing.com/Ashleyboyd)

Thank you to Old South Vintage Rentals for the awesome vintage sofa! http://www.oldsouthvintagerentals.com/
