Beautiful Briar joins big brother, Hunter, who I also first met as a newborn, and had the pleasure of documenting throughout his first year! Opinionated Miss Briar (and a very gloomy day) presented me with quite the challenge at times, but I am in love with the sweet details and simple honesty that exude from this session, which is really what newborn sessions are all about ♡
It was so mild yesterday, it was hard to believe it was mid-December! There is something very wintry however about the bright blue-hued wardrobe this family chose, which I just love. I had so much fun working with these kids...SO much personality! And I think 5-year-old Darcy is ready for her modeling contract ;-)
I'm not sure which shone brighter during our late afternoon walk through the woods...the amazing golden hour light, or the love this family shared for each other ♡
I have been photographing lovely Maya since she was just four months old...she never fails to disappoint with her playful spirit and big blue eyes! She also has (hands down) the best pout I've ever seen! I give you Maya, at age 2!
Sweet, sleepy, and satisfied - that was handsome little Ethan in a nutshell! He was 14 days new, perfect in every way, and so content he even gave us a tiny smirk ♡
I absolutely LOVE sessions where I have so many favorites, it's hard to pick which ones to blog! Tara is such a stunning mom-to-be and natural in front of the lens, that she really made it difficult to choose! Congrats guys on your little girl (due to make her appearance in July)!
And just like that, in the blink of eye, sweet Callan is ONE! Just over a year after I photographed his mama's baby bump, he has blossomed into such a little man! This birthday boy was quite serious about that cake (as he should be), you do only get a first birthday once. We had SO much fun watching him make that mess!
I love when I get to follow babies as they grow! My journey with handsome little Callan began before he was born, with mom Angel's maternity session back when there was still snow on the ground. I then had the opportunity to capture him as a sweet newborn, and here he is looking like such a big boy with a budding personality! I can hardly wait for his 1 year session this winter!
Korie truly had that expectant momma glow about her, and I loved how her choice of wardrobe really complimented the secret garden aspect of the location. The light that evening was also simply amazing! Daughter and big sis-to-be Adalynn was a lot of fun too and you could tell how much she already loved her baby sister, who unbelievably made a (very) early entrance - six weeks to be exact - just five days after our session! (Baby Ellason is doing just fine and is home already!) Congrats guys! :-)
I always look forward to my sessions with the incredibly handsome Hunter! How could I not with that sweet, little face and those big, brown, soulful eyes?! Just love his expressions!
I have been following little Landon since before he was even born - with mom Kassi's maternity session late last summer! I last saw him in October as a newborn, and I can hardly believe he's already 6 months old and full of so much personality! What a cutie pie...just LOVE that smile!
What a handsome little man I got to spend a sunny, Sunday afternoon with! I love LOVED his dapper outfit (does he not look like a Gap model)?! Teagen is such a spunky, fun, typical 2-year-old (with the most gorgeous blonde locks I might add)! I just love how his awesome personality really shined through the lens :-)
I absolutely love lifestyle sessions at home! It is so personal, cozy, and just plain real...it doesn't get any better in my opinion. I could really feel the love and joy everyone in this family (especially big sister Kay!) had over 3-week-old Matthew! And get a load of his fantastic eyes and hair! :-)
There's nothing better than getting to meet a newborn after doing his parents' maternity session! 12 day old Callan was as sweet (and sleepy) as could be, and pretty darn cute too! Those cheeks!
