It’s such a special feeling for me to be able to capture maternity photos for a family and then a couple months later, come into their home and document the same family loving on that new baby! Baby Jacob was a perfect angel during the shoot, he slept the whole time and looked precious doing […]

I love doing in home sessions! There is something about being in your own environment, that I think helps make people feel comfortable, especially children, when doing a photo shoot! And it doesn’t hurt that this family has beautiful light throughout their lovely home! I just love cozy and playful shoots like this! And I […]

Since I’ve been catching up on blogging and posting A LOT of blog posts at a time, that means you don’t have to wait to see the baby after seeing a maternity session! Haha. I JUST blogged Elaine’s maternity session before this one, and now you get to see the precious Kai outside of her […]

I’m so in love with this family, I could take photos of them all the time! After the arrival of their new baby in the fall, now they have THREE adorable little boys! Those beautiful parents sure have their hands full! ;) This is the second time I’ve been invited into their lovely home to […]

We didn’t quite hit the newborn stage with this session, but I had the opportunity to be invited back into the Beitel home to do a lifestyle family (newborn-ish) session when Elliot was about one month old!

In the past two weeks I’ve had the opportunity to go into the homes of three different families and document their love for each other and their adorable new babies! I’ve always enjoyed doing lifestyle newborn sessions, but after the past couple weeks, I’ve grown into loving them even more!! There is something so special […]

Some of my closest friends just had a beautiful baby boy! I love newborn sessions like this! If I’m being honest, I don’t know how to pose babies and wrap them up all perfectly, but even if I knew how, I think I’d still prefer a more lifestyle approach to newborns. I love photos of […]
