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!
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!
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!
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!
Three months is a notoriously hard age to photograph babies…they’re not the sleepy, squishy newborns anymore, but they’re not yet sitting up. However, sweet little Walt made it so fun! He and his family came to visit me back in January, and I totally love the sibling shots we got. He also flashed us his super handsome smile quite a few times. The funniest part was trying to fit him into that little baby bed in the black and white photo, he was totally not into it ha!
The first time I photographed Natalie and Garrett was at their wedding. Fast forward ten years, and I have now had the honor of photographing each of their 3 baby girls as a newborn and throughout their first year! We finished up Violet’s baby bundle for her one year session at a coffee shop! So much fun to use this unique backdrop. I love all the pretty bokeh the lights created, and the colors that Natalie dressed everyone in were perfect! After the coffee shop, we stopped at my studio to do a few studio shots, including the watermelon setup for her birthday invitations. And you absolutely CANNOT miss the last series in this post…scroll down to see!
At Natalie and Garrett’s wedding in 2009, we took the first photo, on the left. Natalie asked me to re-create it at Izzy’s 1st birthday session which was also the year they celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary. She remember to have me take an updated shot this time, for their 10th anniversary! So fun to see them all together.
Sweet Murphy Quinn is one! I hadn’t met this family before this session, but it was love at first sight, ha! They are the sweetest people and I loved hearing their story and the story of this sweet girl. Her momma came with all kinds of cute props and a couple cute outfits, and we spent our time celebrating Murphy! Her smile just makes you melt!
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!
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!
