Baby Sister On The Way: Studio Maternity Portraits

So happy for this adorable family who will be welcoming baby girl next month! What I love most about this anticipated arrival, is hearing how excited their little girl is about having a baby sister. When little brother came along she snuggled him in all his newborn pictures and just melted all our hearts! She loves being a big sister. She and little brother have such a sweet friendship and it makes me glad to know that their little sister will soon share in the closeness of their sibling fun. Amber and Ben, you are such wonderful parents. I can’t wait to see you all together as a family of five!

 

Big sister snuggles from 2017. Can’t wait to see these two snuggle their new sister!





Little Milo: A Newborn Session

Meet little Milo just six days new in these pictures all snuggled up with his mommy, big brother, and daddy.  He is such a good baby and seeing him with big brother just melted my heart! There were so many sweet moments with the two of them, that I had a hard time choosing just one for this post. I will probably post more of them on the Facebook page so check in there for more cute lovable moments. Kim and Shawn thank you so much for having me over to capture these new moments of your beautiful family of four. Your boys are so adorable! Congratulations and I can't wait to send you the rest!

Fall Family Portraits: Sneak Peek

A few favorites from last Saturday's family portraits. She is such a little cutie! She was a serious explorer of the woods and loved eating the apples I brought, but we caught a few smiles in that gorgeous morning light. So great seeing your beautiful family Matt and Sara! 

Little Autumn Cutie

Here's someone cute to brighten your day! This little autumn cutie has hit her 9 month milestone and will be a year in December. I can't believe how fast the year has gone! She's the happiest little girl I know and is now so curious and crawling everywhere. I just can't help but share her adorableness!

Hard to believe this little one is already 6 months! She is truly the happiest baby I've ever met and it's been such an honor to watch her grow. Lindsay and Dan you are doing such a wonderful job of raising such a sweet little girl! Enjoy all her snuggles and have a happy first Father's Day weekend! 

Spring Family Portraits

Caught some spring sunshine and some yellow blooms with this beautiful family last Saturday! It was hard to narrow down favorites for the blog preview. I just love this family! And their little Harper is such a smart little girl. She can already sing her ABCs, count, and hold up two fingers to show how old she is. It sure was fun to get to see these guys again. Can't wait to meet their newest little guy in about 7 more weeks! 

Beautiful Mommy: Maternity Session

Balloons Of Fun & Turning One!

Sharing a whole lot of cuteness on the blog tonight! Hope this little guy brings a smile to your face. He loved his birthday balloons so much he got all tangled up in them! He was super happy to be in daddy's arms and even gave mommy some kisses. He is such a sweetheart!

Editing tonight and just had to share a few pictures from last Sunday's family photo shoot! Singleton family it was such a pleasure to take photos for you again! I love taking photos for your family and I can't wait to show you the rest soon! Have wonderful weekend together! 

The Widstrom Family

It brings my heart such great joy to be able to share these images! This beautiful mommy has waited a very long time to adopt these precious little boys who have called her mommy for quite some time now. And now today they are legally adopted as her very own! Congratulations Laura! I admire so much the love and care you give to your boys! They are blessed to have such a strong, caring, loving, and faithful mommy like you!

Special Mini Bride Session

Here come the brides...Da da da da!  We had two little brides for yesterday's mini bridal sessions! 

I can't think of a better way to reuse a wedding dress, than this! Although it was a little chilly out these sweethearts put on their mommy's wedding dresses and were incredible little models! Their moms and I had so much fun playing dress up with them! And in between pictures we kept them royally warm by adorning them with a cozy fur coat! Thank you girls for making your mommies so happy! They will cherish this forever I'm sure! 

Pastor Family Portraits

I simply adore families who laugh, love, and play together! And the Pastor family is definitely one of these families! 

Getting to see this family and to watch their little ones grow through the years is such a treat! The multi colored brick wall was a super lucky find and their outfits could not have been more perfect for it! So grateful for the beautiful weather and fun we had! 

When I arrived at our meeting spot their kiddos were all ready for the camera with lots of adorable poses! They had fun playing copycat with daddy, pretending to be the Incredible Hulk, and showing me how high far they can jump (see below)! There were so many hilarious silly kid poses I couldn't include them all in this post! And I have to say my face almost hurt from smiling while I was editing!

Little Sweetheart: L's Newborn Session

Absolutely gushing over this sweet little baby boy! 

I always enjoy collaborating with clients and hearing the ideas they have for pictures! Amy and Ryan had so many fun ideas and beautiful family heirlooms to work with I couldn't wait for picture day! It was so fun getting to capture their sweet sleepy guy with his Great Grandfather's purple heart and WWII military medals and his daddy's baseball jersey and mitt! This family was so enjoyable to hang out with! Even their dog was amazingly chill and friendly!

There is nothing so sweet as a newborn baby! I hope this little guy brings a warm smile to your day! Cause he is crazy cute! Congratulations Ryan and Amy! You are truly blessed! Thanks again for letting me a part of capturing this wonderful moment for your family!

Loved Little One: Newborn Session

Introducing Little Miss H! So loved and so beautiful!

It was so wonderful to meet little Miss H! Just three weeks old and such a little doll! She has an incredible mommy and daddy and three siblings who all love her! So glad we could capture her while she is so small and new! Congratulations "U" family!  So excited to photograph you and all your little ones this spring!  

Welcome to this world Little Miss H!

Introducing Little Miss H, nine days old and perfect as can be!

 She was so sleepy but could not resist peeking at mommy and daddy every now and then when they would hold her.  It was so fun seeing her all dressed up in the outfit her mommy wore as a newborn, and to have her cozied up in blankets with her daddy's childhood books (Bringing tears to her grandma's eyes! So sweet!). She has brought so much excitement to the family being the first grandchild for both sides! Her other loving grandma handcrafted the beautiful doll you see pictured above with meaningful fabrics and heirlooms from the family! 

Congratulations B family! Your little Miss H is simply beautiful! It has been so fun getting to know you all and a real honor to capture the beginnings of your beautiful family of three! God bless you and your new little one! Enjoy all her sweet snuggles!
