Baby Abigail

One of my favorite photo families welcomed their third baby girl last week, and I had the honor of taking some newborn and family photos of them. They invited me (well, I invited myself) into their home just a few days after birth, because I was hoping to get both those sweet sleeping baby photos (the ones where you can pose them however you like), along with some awake photos. Unlike my newborn daughter, Abby was wide awake the entire time! I may not have captured a lot of posed shots of her, but I definitely got to showcase her beautiful newborn eyes and get some great shots of the family. You can tell they’re so in love with their newest edition!

Smiles!

My Miss M is already seven weeks old! She had her first smiles at five and a half weeks, but she’s just now really starting to smile for us. I actually caught a few on camera today! I included a couple of her typical serious face, too.

Maternity Photos

Today marks 36 weeks into my pregnancy. Lil’ Miss K arrived at 36.5 weeks, so I have anywhere from days to weeks left. I’ve been meaning to have my husband shoot a few maternity photos for weeks now (before my belly got so big), but we finally got around to it tonight. It’s hard to see yourself gain more weight and get bigger than baby #1 (I mean, what woman isn’t self-conscious at practically every point in her life?), but I’m happy he did such a nice job capturing this stage of my life/pregnancy. While I’m ready for Baby M’s arrival, I’m trying to savor these moments. Lil’ Miss K is excited to be a big sister, too!

Spring Portraits

With spring comes warmer weather…and wind! We definitely fought wind this portrait session, but the kiddos (and parents) did great. I couldn’t believe how much little Ethan smiled and posed for the camera. I’ve been doing this family’s photos since their engagement session close to a decade ago. Those photos were actually at the same park – in the wintertime! They live on the other side of the country now, but we’re always able to catch up when they come back to visit.

Portrait Session | Midwest Weather

I took these portraits last weekend in about 70-degree weather. This weekend it snowed. That’s the Midwest for you! I’m hoping for more spring and less winter in the near future. I love this family…and the fact that they always bring grandparents to the photo shoot to help wrangle the kids and make them laugh. It works like a charm!

Portrait Session | She’s three? How can that be?

This little girl is growing up way too fast. She’s a ball of energy with a lot of sass and a lot to say. She couldn’t be any cuter! I’ve had the pleasure of taking her photos since she was an infant, so I love looking back to see how she’s changed. Since she has a late fall birthday, we utilized our newly remodeled church, which has great natural light.
