I love it when I get the chance to watch families grow and change. We first photographed the Ng family two and a half years ago when their first little boy, Max, was born. I’m so happy we were able to get them into the studio for a little family time. Cathy’s mom even joined the fun for a bit. It’s always great to have a support system and an extra set of hands to help you keep the session calm and fun.
I also LOVE creating albums, not just of weddings, but engagement sessions and baby sessions. It brings the whole story together in one place. Over the years, the beautiful books decorate the coffee table, so you can always remember how little they once were.

I had a great time taking a few photos at this mini session with my cousin’s little girl. We were up visiting in Des Moines last weekend and decided to have a little session to celebrate Dylynn’s 1st birthday. Of course a cookie was involved in this little birthday celebration. It also included an adorable little wagon painted by my aunt for Dylynn. Check out my aunt’s awesome Junk Jubilee, it’s a junk market and show of vintage, rustic and repurposed items. There’s one coming up in Des Moines in April. :)
Anyway, check out the adorabel photos of little Dylynn in her sundress. There are plenty of other fun photos from this session, but I just couldn’t wait to get these out into the universe.
It’s been a few weeks since I shot this amazing newborn baby portrait session at the studio in Denver with Linda and Caleb. I’m sure baby Jack is so much bigger now! He was already almost a month old when we shot these photos. It’s always easier to get babies when they are within their first two weeks of life, but we can always make it work. I photographed Linda and Caleb’s wedding back in 2010 at the amazing Evergreen Lakehouse in Colorado. I was so excited when Linda contacted me this last fall to let me know she was expecting! We photographed their maternity session right before I packed up to leave Denver for Kansas City for the winter. I’m so glad I was able to go back early this February to photograph their new family.
They are all so happy and in love together. It is absolutely amazing to watch them. It took almost a good hour to get baby Jack to go to sleep the way we wanted. No worries though, we always plan for that. It’s how you get so many amazing photos of mom, dad and baby just hanging out and snuggling. Once the little guy was finally asleep we could move on to some “baby as art” type photographs. There were so many great shots from this session, but here are a few for you to enjoy.
PS. I’m totally in love with the vintage scale they found. It was amazing and so hard to choose between all of the awesome props and outfits Linda brought that we’d brainstormed for over the months!
Happy baby portraits are fabulous, but I think it’s also fun when we are able to capture a little bit of kids’ curious, thoughtful nature too. I think those are the ones moms and dads will look back on and recognize their little-one’s expression in their grown child. For little Luke’s 2 year session we ventured out to the local park. We also brought along one of his favorite foods – oranges. They offered a bright pop of color against his little green vest. Some simple props and some encouragement from mom and I were all he needed to show off his cuteness.

I’m so excited to show off these portraits of Leanna & Tate and the newest addition to their family, Nash. I feel like I create such a connection with my wedding clients. I love that they feel more like family friends than they ever felt like clients. Leanna was referred to me by her friend for Leanna’s wedding last June. Then, while I was meeting with another wedding client this spring (a referral from Leanna) I found out that she was expecting and I was overjoyed! I knew how excited they were to start a family and I knew all about their awesome support system of friends and parents.
When I walked into their house, it was quiet, but in a very peaceful way. Leanna greeted me with a smile. She was so happy, she just glowed and even Tate, who wasn’t to excited about shooting the maternity session was so enraptured by the new little guy that he couldn’t help but be happy the whole afternoon. Everything wasn’t perfect, the baby was fussy and the diapers were leaky, but it didn’t matter, because Nash had arrived happy and healthy.
AND enormous kudos to Leanna’s mom for coming back at the end of the session from a grocery store run. She instantly put Nash to sleep and was an expert baby moulder for our “baby as art” portraits.
