I have taken Leslie Wessel’s family photos for a few years now, and so I was excited to do headshots for her realtor team this January! We had a lot of fun and it was great to meet all of these lovely ladies!
So crazy that this sweet thing is getting so close to turning one! This was his 9 month session, back in January. Lincoln and his family moved to Colorado in the fall, and so I was happy to hear they would be back in town around the 9 month mark and wanted to do a session! We were even able to sneak outside for a few since it was a mild January day. I love that we ended the session in some jammies with his favorite pacifier – totally captured him at 9 months old!
Sweet little Milo was the cutest and had super soft little cheeks! I loved them! He was my first baby of 2019, though he was actually born just before the new year. He was a very calm baby but just did NOT want to fall asleep. We got some awake stuff, did all the family stuff, then really tried to get him to sleep. After awhile trying to outwit him for quite some time, I re-wrapped him super snug and had momma feed him. He finally dozed off and we got several cute wrapped poses but then when I went to unwrap him and do the naked baby stuff, he couldn’t settle. Then he decided to “go” everywhere and we were done! Ha! Sweet little guy, he’s one lucky baby brother with all those big siblings!
Well friends, we’ve made it! This is the last session I had in 2018, so we are caught up to the present year finally! Miss Blakely was born just before Christmas, and I was able to meet her on the 27th for a quick newborn shoot! I photographed Blakely’s parents’ wedding a few years ago (and even her momma’s senior photos!) and was SO excited to hear that they were expecting. Blakely is just as sweet as could be expected. She didn’t want to go to sleep during the first part of our session, but I was able to sneak some photos in between her opening her eyes. Then she got hiccups so momma fed her and she was able to finally catch some Zzzz’s. She fought us a little on the last pose (on her tummy) but we were successful and got the sweetest photos of this little lady!
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!
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!
Oh, sweet Wilmer Dean. He was born just before Christmas, and we heard that mom and dad had sung him Christmas carols as loud as they could on the way to our session in order to keep him awake. But he still wanted to stay awake to see what was going on when he got to the studio. Mom fed him and then we ended up wrapping him and he fell asleep for awhile. We were able to get in all of our prop poses. We decided to do the beanbag last and he was NOT a fan of being on his tummy. I finally won the battle and got ONE beanbag pose out of him and then we decided to call it a day. Sweetest little squish ever! Such a cutie!
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!
Shayleigh was such a dream baby! She was almost 2 weeks old because her momma had some complications after birth and had to go back to the hospital. Shayleigh ate when she got here for her session, then I rocked her a bit and she was out for the entire time…totally didn’t care what we did to her! Mom and Dad were super calm too and it was just a wonderful, laid-back session. I especially loved the cow props that they brought, it was so special and ADORABLE to see her in the little cow hat. And then scroll all the way to the bottom to see where we put her in her dad’s cowboy hat!
