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

Glenn | 6 Months Old

We had this cutie’s 6 month session back in February…hard to believe he will be one in just a few short months! Glenn is so happy and sweet, and his big sister Eleanor is totally in love with him so she was excited to be in a few photos with him. We lost the shirt after some major drool, and it was all for the best, because I mean…look at those awesome baby rolls! I had so much fun capturing all of his cute expressions!

Caleb | Newborn

This is probably one my most favorite sessions to blog of all time! And possibly the longest newborn post ever. My nephew Caleb was born in January, and my mom and I flew out to Denver to meet him and stay with my brother + his family for several days in February. We had so much fun snuggling with him and hanging out with his big brother and sister. Caleb was a month old, so a little older than I usually photograph newborns, but since we were staying with them, we could kinda follow his schedule to get some of those sleeping poses. We took a more lifestyle approach to most of these and I’m in love! Be sure to see my mini-me in action, posing her teddy bear like a newborn. <3

I loved this silhouette because you can see the mountains out their bedroom window!

My niece Selah was watching everything I did intently, then we found her wrapping up her teddy bear and posing him in the box we had been using for her little bro. After awhile I let her come take some photos on my camera of her brother, and she did a great job! She would’ve taken the camera away and done her own thing if I’d let her!

And because I’m obsessed with her face, here’s Selah in her princess dress. 🙂

Pryor | Six Months Old

This face! I just love it!! We did Pryor’s 6 month session mostly in the studio, with just a few snowy photos outside at the end! I love that he often has his tongue sticking out (just like his big sister did when she was a baby)! And this go-round went so much better with big sis! Last time, Harper was NOT interested in taking photos with her brother at all. This time, she did so well! We were so excited. We will be doing his first birthday session this summer, and I can wait to watch the two of them together!

Frankie | Six Months Old

Ohhh Frankie. This was such a fun session! We got to use my new rug in my studio for a backdrop (which I hadn’t done before and I LOVE!) and we got to go outside for a few snowy photos! Keep in mind, this was back in February. This little girl is so loved, and her two big brothers are quite a bit older than her…but it’s so fun to see them with her. Be sure to scroll down to see a few “before and afters” of this sweet little lady! And don’t miss the snow ones at the end!

That’s her big brother’s finger she’s grabbing. SO sweet!

Frankie’s daddy is a lineman, so for her newborn session, we did some lineman photos. Here’s a fun little collage of her newborn photo right next to her six month photo.

And another because I’m a sucker for these!

Elsie | Newborn

Elsie reminded me so much of my own babies! She was pretty much the same weight and length as my oldest, and floppy like my boys were. Just something about her was so sweet and familiar! And she did so well during her session. She slept through just about everything and looked good in every color. Big bro Cooper surprised us all and was so sweet and loving for his photos with her…don’t miss those at the end. Such a wonderful session!

Claire | One Year Old

I haven’t completely won Claire over yet with my charm and exuberant personality (lol)…but if we keep hanging out, I’m convinced I can! Her parents tell me that she’s got a more serious personality anyway, so they were happy even though we didn’t get too many smiles out of her. We had gotten some frost the day of their February session and it made the homestead look so pretty! We grabbed a couple family photos outside to take advantage of that, and then finished up in the studio! This is the sweetest family ever, it’s been fun getting to know them throughout Claire’s first year!
