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 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
Back in March, I got to meet and photograph the awesome team behind Homes by Keely! My husband has photographed and videoed several houses that Keely has sold, so I’d heard about her and it was fun to finally meet her. We started out at a GORGEOUS model home, and then finished our time downtown at some super bright and fun Wichita murals. Love the vibe we got with these!
Riley turned one back in March and we did a milk bath to end her studio session! This was the first one I’d ever done and it was SO cute and beyond precious. Riley was very interested in the flowers and her little toes peeking out were the best! It was an honor to capture Riley throughout her first year, and fun to see her mom and dad with her!
In February, we had our semi-annual photo session with the Mirakian family! I have lost count of how many years it’s been that I’ve been photographing these boys in my studio, but we plan to continue the tradition til they’re 18! Always a chaotic and fun time with all the outfit changes and convincing the boys to gimme the REAL smiles! 🙂
We just took Delaney’s 1 year photos this week, but these are from her 9 month session back in February! We had some snow on the ground and I was so glad we were able to take a few photos out in the snow. That little fur vest?? Adorable. I always love seeing this sweetie and have loved our year of sessions!
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!
Things have been crazy and this blog hasn’t been getting much attention lately! But I had some time to add a post today. This was one of my coooooooolllldest sessions of the year. Tarannum and Prasad drove down from KC for their belly session, and I believe it was around 25 degrees outside. Tarannum had thermals and boots under her dress but Prasad was in short sleeves! Ha! They have since had their sweet baby boy and I love his newborn photos…those will be posted here at some point!
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. 🙂
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!
