I met Holly and Bill over a year ago when I photographed their brand new premie baby girl, Aspen for her newborn session. Back in March, we got Holly’s whole family together for a big family session! It was a little chilly, but we had a lot of fun getting to know each other and snuggling up for photos! I have since had another session with Aspen + her parents that was HOT. So we’ve done both sides, haha.
Hi friends! It’s been awhile. I’m excited to share this maternity session with you today…I love this family! Their baby girl has since been born and we have done newborn photos, which I’ll share at a later date. But I started with Zach and Kirsten back when they were pregnant with their first baby boy, and have documented them every step of the way. It was so exciting to hear that they were having a girl after two boys and Kirsten couldn’t have been glowing more for her belly photos. We had such a fun evening and captured lots of fun candid moments for them during their last session as a family of four!
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. 🙂
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!
We had a lot of babies in the studio during the early couple months of 2019, and I was so excited to see this little man for his 6 month session. We had done maternity and newborn photos and I’m just such a huge fan of his mom and dad, it’s always fun to see them. Asher is developing such a cute little personality and it’s so great to see these three loving on each other! Also…a session is always a success in my books if we can take baby down to just a diaper for some photos to show off that amazing baby chub!
I have photographed part of this family for some time now, so I was excited to meet the entire bunch out at Grandma and Grandpa’s new country home for a big family session. It was SO cold and windy on this January day, it took some convincing to get the kiddos on board. They did awesome though. We tried to be a little creative with our locations so we had some wind block, and I love the natural feel these have!
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!
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!
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!
