“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!”

They ordered a gallery image and prints with their order, so they see these photos every day in their entry way, in their living room, on a nightstand… And let me say, they always decorate their home with different kinds of beautiful artwork, but not typically large personal photos of family. After saying they probably wouldn’t get a gallery image, they got a gallery image. AND, her parents now have their first large family photo in their home too! <3

“I’m so excited to share another sweet baby with you! Zoey was born in November, and we had her in-home newborn session soon after. She ended up being fussy for some of the session despite our best efforts with timing the session when babies are typically happy – funny how newborns just have a mind of their own already, huh? – but I hope you’ll agree that we got some super sweet photos of her & her parents anyway! The laid-back nature of these sessions gives plenty of time for soothing & cuddling, as well as the practical stuff like nursing/feeding & diaper changes :)”

“Jessica & Ben are two of my longest clients & friends. They were the first ones to call me their ‘family photographer’ as I’ve captured all their major life moments from engagement & wedding, to maternity & newborn for their first son, to the New Life Collection with their second son. As soon as they said ‘our family photographer,’ I knew I wanted more of that! Recently I’ve fallen even more in love with maternity, newborn, & family photos, and I’m so excited to be pursuing that in a more focused way as I freeze these special moments in time for more young families!”

“I just wrapped up the New Life Collection with Jen & Niels and am so excited to share Bryce’s 1 year session! If you’re new around here – I met Jen & Niels when I captured their courthouse wedding November 2019, and we began the New Life Collection after that with maternity, newborn, and 6-month photos! I just delivered their album & some photo art gifts for their parents, and AH, what a beautiful way to showcase Bryce’s growth from belly to birthday!”

“Since I now have a little one of my own (who just turned 18 months old – whaaat?), I love being able to relate to mamas-to-be who have that feeling of anticipation, not knowing how things will be but excited nonetheless. While we get to know each other, our conversations often even go toward talking about weird stuff that happens during pregnancy – moms understand, and I feel like TMI is out the window when you go through pregnancy and birth!” …”

“It’s announcement time! For the first time ever in over 8 years of my photography business, I am selecting a niche and will be specializing in photography for new parents & families with little ones! Maternity sessions, newborn sessions, and sessions for families with young kids (think, toddlers & preschool-aged kids) will be my specialty, and I am so excited to grow in my service to these families and capture their precious first moments together.”

“If Valentine’s Day is approaching and you’ve got an infant, the stars have aligned & it’s time for an adorable photoshoot! Valentine’s Day is a great time to take these photos, but they’re adorable at any time of the year. Our son’s half-birthday happens to fall on Valentine’s Day, so he was exactly 6 months old when we took these photos! It was the perfect way to celebrate him, give some extra smooches, and have photos that will always make my heart happy.”

“You may remember Jen & Niels from previous posts as we celebrated their courthouse wedding & then began the New Life Collection! Catch up on their maternity photos & in-home newborn photos, and enjoy seeing baby Bryce grow with these 6-month-old photos aaand 1-year-old photos coming soon! Yes, that’s right, he just turned 1 year old last month, and I can hardly believe it’s already been a year since this little guy was born. …”
