Little Julip

Meet one-and-a-half-year-old Julip. Her beautiful name comes with a sweet story. When Julip’s parents, Caroline and Dustin, first learned they were pregnant, they were a bit worried. They really didn’t have much money, nor insurance. After getting the news, they went to talk it over during lunch. As they talked more, they realized this was actually truly a blessing and it was time to celebrate. The name of that restaurant was Julep. They decided it would be the perfect name, as it was the spot they began to celebrate her arrival, no matter what the circumstances. As you can see from these lovely photos by Rylee Hitchner Photography, certainly Julip has brought them so much love and joy! You can keep up with this sweet family at Caroline’s blog, The Jernigan Wagon. To see more from this session, stop by the full gallery. You can also find more name ideas in our Baby Name Index.

    What a sweet story. This comes at a time where it really hits home- my husband and I are considering trying for a baby even though we have no idea how we’ll manage it financially and we’re quite nervous to make that leap of faith. In almost every story I read/see/am told, it seems like it always just works out somehow, though. This is a lovely reminder of that as well.
