It is with absolute sadness and disbelief I tell you that Jamie Anderson has gone to be with Jesus in heaven. Jamie suffered a fatal brain aneurysm on Saturday, June 13. I do not need to tell you how big of a hole this has left in so many hearts. Jamie was so much more than an absolutely amazing photographer; she was a wife, a mother, a friend, an artist and most of all, a believer.
We are praying for Jamie's family and friends during this terribly unexpected and difficult time. Jamie has touched so many lives and brought so much incomparable beauty to our world. If you’ve spent any time alone with her, especially with a newborn, you couldn’t help but be in awe of her vivacious yet calming spirit. They will need many things, above all, prayer, but money will be needed to help this family. Funds will go towards hospital bills, the funeral service, and any living expenses that the family may have to incur due to time off work, etc. Please donate what you can to help John, the kids.
As a Christian, Jamie saw the world differently than many people. She knew absolute joy in our Savior. The love He has for His children is unequal to anything we will experience in life. Jamie knew that her place on this earth was temporary, and we are certain of her place in heaven. None of us are worthy of the love He bestows upon us, the endless grace and mercy we are shown. And yet, God so loved the world that He sent his only son to die for us on the cross. A man with no sin, the Son of God, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for you, for me, for Jamie. And then he rose from the dead 3 days later just like we will rise again in heaven. We do not mourn for Jamie, whom we are certain is in heaven, but for those of us left here trying to imagine a reality without her.
The world lost so much beauty when Jamie left it, but she did not leave it untouched. She left us with tangible, undeniable proof of her presence through her Husband, her children and her art. Her God-given talent and pictures will be displayed for generations to view and cherish.
The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:2
Jamie accepted His gift.
And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory. Romans 8:30 NLT Jamie has been glorified.
Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Jamie was a great neighbor and a treasured friend. She had a way of making everybody feel like they were part of her family... she treated my children as if they were her own, always welcoming them into her home and giving so much of herself for their happiness. The world is a darker place with her passing, but the angels are singing in her company.
Sorry for your loss
I am so saddened by this news, even though i didn't personally know her.
John Perry, you aren't alone. Perhaps in her memory you could find a church with an active men's group. Often they do more than just Bible study or small group. They go camping, hiking, get together for dinners, etc. I wish you well. I think Jamie would have encouraged you to be with others. Praying for you!!!
This truly breaks my heart. If I could only be as beautiful as she is inside and out. God bless that beautiful family that loves her so much.

Sorry for the loss!
I was so blessed to have known Jamie. She was an amazing photographer and friend. She captured such beautiful moments for us with our sweet triplets and then our baby Loncoln. She wil be greatly missed. There is no way we can understand why God chose to take her home to him. I am praying for her family and her sweet babies.
