Ethan J: Newborn

Ethan J.: Lifestyle Newborn Session 

The joy on this little baby's face says it all. I can't get over the love and comfort I felt when I walked into the Jones home. Those first couple weeks after baby is welcomed home are exhausting, hard and new but being able to capture their love for little Ethan was totally worth it. I love lifestyle newborn sessions because they really are all about capturing mom, dad and baby in their element during some of the most vulnerable and joyful weeks of their life. You don't want to miss a single giggle from baby and you live so presently to all of their needs. I love how photography can be there to celebrate the present. To help you take a breath and see the beautiful parts of the life you're living. Even when it's exhausting and new there is so much to cherish. 

If you are looking to capture these precious first weeks after your little one arrives with laid back celebration feel free to reach out! I'd love to capture your story!

The Toews Family

This morning session 'took my breath away' and this was not even our original location. Early Saturday morning I had prepared a beautiful walk in the woods of Swope Park for the adorable Toews Family but a group of boy scouts had found my glorious spot the night before! So we scrambled for something to present itself and I saw this open area that had light beams all over. I mean seriously for a trouble shooting photographer with back to back mini sessions this was heaven sent. I could not have asked for a more beautiful family and setting for this session. Plus Jackson and his little bowtie were heart melting.

The Brugger Family

Sometimes getting out into the fresh air and exploring is the best thing for family! it was such a joy exploring with Katie, Tom and Clara this past weekend. Along with the Slocum family we did their session on the family owned land that had so much character and story telling with every acre! I love being able to shoot in places that are significant to the family's I photograph, it brings even more meaning to the session because the settings are tied in with each family's story.

The Destigter Family : Welcome Home William

Thank goodness it is Thursday its the time in the week where I go back and try to blog those sessions I totally spaced on! This one especially is crazy, probably one of my favorites.

My new family (new by marriage)  has been such a rock when it comes to moving to KC and growing my business in a new place. They get my vision and have adorable children so it all works out. They have experienced pretty much every kind of Family session I offer and are now the experts of my brand and what my photography is all about.

Especially my 2 year old niece Kate, she gets it even when she is not a fan of it. She is such a  great personality and its been so great photographing her from when she was tiny to now when she is growing as a big sister and toddler. 

All of this to say, earlier this year we welcomed her little brother, Will, into the world ( The blog I #tbt last week was of little Wills birth 6 months ago, give me a break my only excuse was that I was traveling the world throughout the Spring)

I love capturing the full story of life so for little Will we captured him in the womb, in the hospital and in the home. And i can't express how much I love photographing in the home with families. Especially right after a little one, there is so much new and so much real happening in those first couple months. Its exciting and so worth documenting.  Here is that home session with the Destigiters, when a family of 3 became 4 and all of the love and chaos grew into what it is now.

William D: Fresh 48 hours

So i'm obviously a little behind, somehow I missed posting the birth of our little nephew 6 months ago! I did not forget to blog about his adorable 6 month session (see here) but I'm usuing my TBT to try and catch up today! Here is our fresh 48 hours session with little William D.

You'll probably see a lot of this munchkin in my portfolio because since his birth we have all fallen in love with his kissable cheeks and calm personality.  When he was born my husband and I were given the opportunity to stay with our little niece, then 1, while mom and dad relaxed/labored at the hospital! The next day I showed up with big sister and had to capture the straight up joy and celebration that was the birth of our little nephew! 

Fresh 48 sessions are a new term I'm learning but have been doing for a very long time. I used to work for Bella Baby Photography in the hospital back in Tennessee so those fresh moments after a little one is born have always had a special place in my heart.  

Those 2 days in the Hospital are  a weird middle world between being pregnant and bringing a little one home. The faces of joy, excitement, worry and unknown are all over mom. dad and big sisters face. Its so incredible 6 months later to see these moments and remember those faces. 

** Update** Kate has gotten used to having a brother in the last 6 months, I think she even kind of likes him
