Everyone, this is precious Caleb Hudson! 6 weeks new to the world and such a little bundle of love. It was pure joy shooting and spending time with the Voss family! Matt and Corrie are some of the most kind and generous people I’ve had the privilege to know- you can tell they love each other and their family well!
They both have a heart for God too, which was where our connection started. Corrie and I met at a women’s group a couple years ago when she was pregnant with their first, Faith! And what a doll, I mean really…you’ll see what I mean here soon. She’s spunky and sweet and full of zest for life!
Then enters Caleb… calm, pensive, curious, and probably the greatest little cuddler! Corrie mentioned to me that Caleb’s name means faithful, whole-hearted. Matt and Corrie both loved the story of Caleb in the bible- another reason they chose his name. Caleb was one of the faithful believers of the Tribe of Judah who took God at His Word! Instead of caving to fear when sent in to spy out the Promised Land, Caleb and Joshua rose up in faith and encouraged the Israelites to take the land that God had given them by promise! Caleb was a faith-filled leader, willing to go against the grain and believe God in the face of seeming odds. We need more Caleb’s in this world, and I have no doubt that Matt and Corrie are prayerfully and lovingly raising him to be true to his name.
Another sweet fact, Caleb’s middle name, Hudson, is a family name. It was Corrie’s Father’s middle name after the great missionary, Hudson Taylor. I hope and pray for a legacy of faith to continue in this family! The best is yet to come!
all His blessings to you Matt, Corrie, Faith, and Caleb
PS- If you’re anything like me, and would be happy to take another look through sweet baby pics, make sure to play the audio clip below before scrolling. This track is from the new Christy Nockels album, “Be Held”. I had been listening to this album leading up to the shoot- ALL WEEK actually- and am still listening to it. It is precious and powerful! And since they are “lullabies” this track is a perfect mood setter for adoring cuddly babes. Just play and see!
