Bastian is One!

This little Christmas baby (click here to see his newborn photos) turned one in December, and with the rush of all things holiday, we decided to wait until January to do his photos. His parents opted for a downtown session, which I loved! Baby Baz (he will always be Baby Baz to me…it just flows so well, ha!) wasn’t too interested in standing still, so we mostly just chased him around the whole time! He’s such a happy kiddo and his big brother loves him soooooo much!

Kirstyn + Craig | Maternity

I met Kirstyn and Craig for the first time back in December at their maternity session! Even though the leaves had all fallen off the trees and it was an overcast day, we found a gorgeous spot and I LOVE how these turned out! They are super laid back and easy to get to know. Their sweet baby girl was born in January…so stay tuned for her newborn session post! She is DARLING!

the Morales Family

This was our last session in our Baby Bundle for little Bennett’s first birthday, and it has been so fun to see this family as they have gone through so many big milestones! I was honored to photograph their engagement + wedding, and now both of their boys first year. Grandma and grandpa came along to the session and jumped in a few photos as well. The highlight was bringing out the old dump trucks for the boys to play with, and getting a little ride on a sled from dad at the end!

Evie | One Year Old

Isn’t this the cutest family!? Even though I mentioned this in her 6 month post, I just can’t get over Evie’s transformation from tiny 5-pound newborn to this awesome little chunk. Her cheeks are my favorite thing. Evie didn’t have any smiles for me during her session, but you gotta check out the studio portion of our session to see some of the faces she gave me. It has been such a fun year, and we are extra thankful for Evie’s health after a recent scare she gave her momma and daddy. Evie is one special little sweetie!

Lyla | Six Months Old

Do you see this cute little nugget! Gah, she’s just the best! I was absolutely obsessed with her newborn photos that we did, and then she was so incredibly smiley at her six month session back in December so I’m just a melty pool of goo over this little lady. It was even a nice enough day that we were able to sneak outside for some family photos here at the homestead before getting to the studio ones of Lyla alone. I’m sure her first birthday session will be so much fun too!

the Flamings | Family

One of my favorites!! These people are just the BEST. Kind, generous, funny, and just plain fun to be around. Everyone please to look how amazing Danielle’s hat is! If only I could pull that off like she did! It kinda stole the show…don’t tell the others haha. We had a gorgeous sunset that evening, and the funniest part of the night was the kids reaction when I told Britt to kiss Cole. As you can imagine, they were totally grossed out but she still did it! Love! 🙂

the Londons | Family

I had done a Baby Bundle with this sweet family for little sister’s first year, and then Amanda booked a homestead session with me for fall family photos…I think this session is my favorite of all that we’ve done together! The light was to die for, big sister had her awesome personality out in full force. Little sister wasn’t too excited about being put down so she didn’t get many photos alone, but I still absolutely LOVE how these turned out! Enjoy!

Kathryn + Reed | Family

This session from November marks the 4th year of me photographing these dear friends! And the session was so very bittersweet because they are leaving me…and moving to a much warmer climate (lucky). But, we made it at least a little better by going out for tacos after their session. I love these two because they will drop anything to help, are always willing to hang out with our kids, and are just down to earth! They will be so missed, but now I have an excuse to visit the desert!

Valerie | Belly

Val is my dear friend and when I heard she and her hubby were expecting their third baby, I was BEYOND excited! That baby girl has since been born and is darling, but before her arrival, we were able to sneak in a little maternity session. I was scrambling to find some fall color, as most of the trees had already shed their leaves at this point. But we found a pretty spot with lots of orange and it was great. It was definitely cold for these photos, so we made the session short and sweet. I’ll (hopefully) catch up (some day) and share the photos from baby Aurora’s newborn session soon!
