Baby Bump Jam

Kelsea's mom had contacted me about this session.  She wanted to gift it to her daughter a Maternity session because she didn't ever want her to regret not doing it.  After all, she will only be pregnant with this child once, this is a time she will never get back!

So I contacted her and told her someone had anonymously gifted this session to her and Austin and they better do it! ;)  

I am so glad she did!  This session went great and Kelsea looks adorable (pregnant or not). Not too mention this couple takes direction so well!

Here is a preview of some of their favorites from the session:

Iris: Newborn Session

Iris was 13 days new when she came to visit me in my studio and what a doll!  She slept like a true dream and let me pose her, change her, and snuggle her all without waking up!  Newborn sessions have the tendency to take quite a while (I aim for between 2-3 hours) because we go by baby's schedule and demeaner.  Well, with Miss Iris, it was only about an hour!  Had I known how fantastic she was going to be, I would have 5 more setups ready! 

Here are a few of her mom's favorites:

There are so many more that I love that I may be a "throwback" to someday!

Baby J: 1 month young

Baby J: 1 month young

I had the pleasure of hanging out with this very adorable 6 week old little lady, Jocelynn.  She was a bit old for an official newborn session, as I like them in the very early, very sleepy stage, but we still had a good go of it!

I can not say enough about how great this session was.  Elise is my Aunt's neighbor's granddaughter (wow, I know, that was a mouthful!).  So, not only did I get to do what I love, taking photos, but I got a local history lesson as well!  We did this session at Grandma's house, which is where Elise's late grandfather grew up! Many spots in the area hold special meaning to this family, which I thought was kind of cool!  Here is just a preview of some of those spots:

This is only a small preview of all the great photos I captured with this adorable little girl!

Her Grandma had specifically mentioned how amazing it was to see her little granddaughter next to this massive tree:

Little girl, BIG tree!

Little girl, BIG tree!

Briggs newborn session

Briggs was born July 9, 2015 at 2:55 pm to Morgan Renner and Lucas Faldalen.  He was a whopping 9 pounds 5 ounces!  The most gorgeous, chubby baby boy I have ever seen! I can totally say that, because my boy's were scrawny newborns!

Briggs and his parents came to see me when he was 10 days old, and it was still a battle to get him to sleep for us!  He just wanted to eat. But, when we finally got him to sleep, it was AMAZING!
