Amelia ~ newborn session ~ 10 days old

This was my first time meeting Baby Amelia and her parents and I must say, she just melted my heart. For 10 days new she was so strong and alert and her favorite spot during the shoot was in her Daddy's arms. Thank you guys so much for allowing me to meet your new addition and be a part of capturing her first few days in this world.

Gillis Family ~ Baby Bump

One of the best parts of my job is watching families grow. I got to photograph Andrew & Kristin's wedding a few years ago (what a gorgeous and fun day!) A year later I did their son's newborn photos and now they are expecting baby number two ♥

Annaliese ~ Portrait Session

I was so excited to see how big Annaliese had grown since I last saw her and I was blown away at how much she's changed. This little girl was barely moving last time we met and now she's all ringlets and laughs, running circles around me! We had a tea party with Cat, played with some balloons, threw some Easter eggs and just let her play ♥ I can't wait to visit again for baby belly photos in a few weeks!

William ~ Portrait Session

I had so much fun with William. He is stacked full of energy and just loves to move and run and play. Sorting through and editing this session just brought such a smile to my face! We definitely had a busy time keeping him occupied and switching things up. His Mom had the wonderful idea of throwing in a bunch of colorful balloons and WOW did he ever love that! We ended the afternoon with some sweet pictures of him in his room :)

Kara ~ Newborn Session

This was my first time meeting Kara and her family and I'm so glad I did. This little princess was so good the whole session and only 7 days old. I absolutely love when I get to photograph them this young. She slept most the time and let us pose and dress her up however we wanted. She is simply gorgeous ♥

Levi ~ Portrait Session ~ 6 months

I've known Jeannie since high school and a few years ago I had the pleasure of photographing her and her husband Chad exchange vows. It was one heck of a celebration!Needless to say I was SO excited when I found out she was expecting and that I got to take baby belly photos (which she rocked!). When Levi was born I missed his photos as I was getting ready to have Alice but am so glad I got to photograph him at 6 months- I fell in love :) Something about this little man's smile just melts my heart, a perfect fit for a family that loves him back so much ♥

Abigael ~ 13 Months

I got to meet Abigael for the first time a few weeks back for her one year photos and I have to say it, she's adorable. We kept her busy with different outfit changes and props and even took a few pictures in her room just playing before we brought out the fancy cupcake. I love the way they turned out and had such a hard time just choosing a few to post ( nothing new there lol) I hope Mom & Dad ♥ them too :)

Photo a Day for 2011 ~ Day 60

You'll never guess what I'm snacking on ..

Fryer Family/Maternity Session

I have known Jenn since grade school and haven't seen her in years so when she messaged me about taking some new family photos of their son Wade and her baby belly I was thrilled! Wade was as all boys are, fun and full of energy. Amazingly he did so good at staying in front of the camera and just playing for his age. And Jenn, you look amazing. I absolutely love photographing baby bellies and you were no different. Your smile and pregnant glow just shone through. Thank you so much for inviting me to take these photos for you and Ben, I hope you love them and good luck over the next few weeks with your little girl's arrival ♥
