Limited Edition fall photo sessions at a Christmas tree farm! See the Christmas cards, ornaments, wall art, & more that my clients and I created together in 2021, all while capturing fun, festive holiday moments that they’ll be able to enjoy forever.
I’ve started another round of the New Life Collection with Haley & Michael, so let’s catch up on a couple other sessions I’ve had with them! See James’ 1-year session with his grandparents, his full New Life Collection album, their fall family photos with James then as a toddler, + more artwork for their home!
Each summer, Dorothea Dix Park is home to a beautiful sunflower field that is the perfect backdrop for family photos! There are rows of flowers to explore, the perfect amount of space for a family to have fun while taking photos, and even a cool swingset and hammocks to enjoy afterward.
It was such a joy to meet Dawn, Brian, and their girls Julia & Emeline for a fall photo session back in 2020, and then I had the extra special honor of doing an in-home photo session with Dawn & the girls to capture some fun & natural mommy-daughter photos the following summer. Today you get to see both!
The holidays are full of magic & cheer, but it can also be a really busy season. If you’ve been caught in the hustle & bustle of the season or are just craving some more festivities, here are 4 family-friendly things to put on your calendar! It’s not too late!
“This morning we dropped Isaac off for his first day of school EVER, and I’m over here all emotional about it, as mamas will be! We had to take those classic first day of school photos, and CAN YOU EVEN?! I also want to share some new stage of motherhood thoughts & feelings, because well, there are lots of them. I’m using this space to document, process, and share in hopes that you can relate & maybe feel a little more validated in all your own feelings & emotions as a mama with kids in transition.”
“Our son just turned two years old, and we had such a fun little birthday party for him! We all had a blast (pun intended ) at his “Two Infinity and Beyond” birthday party. Let me share some of the things we did to tie in to the theme, as well as some more that you could do! We kept it pretty simple, and it felt like the perfect fit for us this year. Hope you see some ideas you’d like for your own party!”
Spoiler alert – I didn’t know it at the time, but this was the last session I had with this sweet family as a family of three… Since we took these photos last fall, they have welcomed a baby boy & we’ve done maternity and newborn photos for them as part of the New Life Collection! I’m eager to share those photos with you all too, but it just didn’t feel right to skip over these photos and go straight to their maternity photos. Ada is too cute in these and I’ve got to share!
“You’re 3 months into motherhood… You’re finally settling into life with a baby, finding new rhythms, and hopefully getting to some kind of new normal. Baby is growing! You can hardly recognize her from the newborn photos you had taken just a few months ago. How is it that she already looks so different? With her physical growth & changes comes some personality too – she’s smiling, she’s laughing, she’s playing… oh, what a joy to see her become more interactive! There’s a little person in there!”
“Baby Preston will be making his grand debut any day now, so let’s make sure this sweet family’s maternity photos make it on the blog before then! I helped photograph Ashley & Nick’s wedding reception years ago, and I was thrilled when they thought of me to capture this sweet time of anticipation before welcoming their baby boy. Their 5-year-old daughter Belle was amazing during the session, and I know she’s going to be the best big sister!”
