Lincoln | 1 Year Old

I counted it up and while I knew I was getting farther behind with blogging, I didn’t realize HOW far. Guesses? I am 114 sessions and 13 weddings behind on blogging. AH! Breathe, breathe…

Here’s the cutest little cutiepie Lincoln! He and his family moved to Colorado part way through his first year bundle, but luckily his momma scheduled his 1 year session while they were back on a visit. Loved getting to know this family, and it was fun watching Lincoln smash that cake!

Jordyn | Newborn

Jordyn was a dream baby! She arrived asleep and never woke up. Her only hang up was that she wanted her hands balled into fists the whole time. But she was super floppy and fine with whatever! Big sister Jacey was amazing for just being newly 2 and she held her baby sister like a pro, doing everything we asked! Such a cute little family…love that I’ve been able to photograph both their babies!

Mason | Newborn

Mason was such a little sweetheart!! We were taking photos within 5 minutes of their arrival. For those of you unfamiliar with how these types of sessions work: usually they arrive, sometimes they eat for 10-15 minutes, then we spend another 15-30 minutes getting them to sleep, before we ever even begin posing. Once posing starts, it takes 5-10 minutes for babies to calm and settle in. But seriously…Mason was sleepy when he arrived and pretty much stayed asleep when we started posing, so I was able to start capturing his precious face right away. He was surprisingly strong…he held his head up a lot, and he refused to let us straighten his fingers most of the time. So curly fingers it was! It was also great meeting his mom and dad for the first time…we even discovered that his dad and I had lived in the same apartment complex in Manhattan, just a few years apart! Small world.

the McKinneys | Family

We finished out baby sister’s one year of sessions out at the homestead with a morning session just after sunrise. It was a little chilly that morning back in March so after family photos, we finished up in the studio. Big sister was hamming it up, she’s just the best. So fun to see their different personalities develop, and it was a fun year watching little sis grow!

Daxton | Newborn

We fell in love with Daxton! He was just so chill and easygoing, he even kept posing his hands just perfect for me. We started the session awake after his feeding, with family photos. Big bro wasn’t into being forced into photos, so attempts 1-8 failed, but we finally got our one shot we needed! Dad left with big siblings and we finished up with a sleepy Daxton. It was so interesting to hear the story of the journey his momma had in her pregnancies. Both heartbreaking and redeeming. Loved meeting this family!

Quentin | Newborn

This sweet little buddy arrived at his session completely asleep, and we were able to get our beanbag poses done pretty fast! We quickly found out that he was NOT a fan of his elbows being out away from his body, he needed them tucked in tight. We got through most of our poses pretty easily, but when we tried to put him on his belly, he decided he was done and needed a meal. Momma fed him for awhile, then he got hiccups and it was all over. We finished up with some awake poses in a sweet little onesie that mom brought. He was definitely a little rockstar! I loved meeting this family, and hearing their journey to their rainbow baby! <3
