Fresh 48: Sullivan

Last month baby Sullivan made an early arrival into this world and I got to take in all of his newborn goodness. At just a few hours old, he was showered with love and adoration by his beautiful parents and I got to snap a few photos of his perfect little features.

Every so often I offer Fresh 48 sessions to my clients because they are just good for my soul. It is amazing to see new parents navigate their emerging roles, meet the tiniest babes & address that forever baby fever.

Sullivan, I cannot wait for our in home lifestyle newborn session. Even though I don’t know how it’s possible… I’m pretty sure you’re getting cuter by the day!

Mama & Me Giveaway

_C9A4655-Edit

In February I decided to celebrate motherhood by giving away a ‘mama & me’ session over on instagram! Beautiful Ali won and we took some gorgeous spring photos of her and her adorable daughter Rowyn.ย I was told Rowyn could sometimes be a bit shy and might take take some time to warm up… Needless to say, the photos turned out better than I could have imagined and I definitely plan on making this special giveaway an annual occurrence!

Here are a few more,

Maternity: Kyle & Kylie

Lewis Maternity-5

A few weeks ago, I met this gorgeous couple for their maternity shoot and it was such a pleasure having them in front of my lens. Not only are they beautiful people inside and out, but I genuinely enjoyed the fact that it was just the two of them! Don’t get me wrong, I obviously LOVE photographing families and children – especially my own. However, the task certainly comes with a few obstacles. This session was like a breath of fresh air that I didn’t know I needed. I was just able to revel in the space created to celebrate these two before they become parents and welcome a beautiful baby into their family.

I am so humbled to have been asked to capture this special time in their lives!

Newborn: Tredget Family

Henry-8

This little squish is named Henry and is the newest addition to the Tredget family. He was absolutely perfect during our lifestyle newborn shoot and snoozed the entire time (although I will admit that Dad is the ultimate baby whisperer). Finn has very naturally assumed his big brother role and is already so kind, gentle and protective over little Henry. Thanks again for choosing me to capture these beautiful moments in your lives. I am always so thankful and appreciative when families invite me into their homes to do what I love!

Newborn: Annetts Family

Quinn-30

A couple of months ago, Amanda & Pat welcomed their beautiful daughter into this world. I was so grateful to be invited into their home, meet their adorable new squish and to capture some precious moments for them. Both being animal lovers their only request was to get some photos with their three pups. I was super impressed by how well-behaved and gentle the pups were with Quinn! She sure is one lucky girl. Here are a few of my favs..

Newborn: Olivieri Family

Olivieri-16

This session was a natural light photographer’s DREAM.

The location, the lighting and the happiness & love that filled the home… It was all perfect. Andย not only did it include a childhood friend but her wonderful husband and their two adorable little girls who reminded me so much of my own. In fact, when I got Craig to lay a “fresh set of eyes” on my edits, he had to do a double take because Amelie looked so much like Brynlee.

Take a peek.

Cake Smash: Ronan

ro-2

At the beginning of March, Jess & I invited Brit & Ronan to join us for a duo cake smash session! Our amazing friends at Sculpt Barre West were so kind to let us use their studio again and we had an absolute blast! The two kiddos had fun tearing it up in studio, sharing veggie straws (amongst many other various snacks), and digging into their beautiful & scrumptious cakes. I still cannot believe that they’re already a whole year old… and have the personalities to match!

These three are welcoming another beautiful baby into their family any day now & you can just tell that Finnley is going to be an amazing big brother. He already dotes on mama’s tummy and whispers secrets that only babe can hear. I cannot wait to meet this new squish and bask in all of the newborn goodness! But first, here are a few last shots of them as a family of three.

Engaged: Patty & Chris

Patty & Chris were an absolute dream to work with! Not only are they a gorgeous couple but were also complete naturals in front of the camera. People tend to tense up and get self conscious when they know a camera is around… but these two just continued to be themselves and relish in the moment. They are getting married this summer and I don’t doubt it will be a beautiful occasion filled with lots of love, laughter & happiness. Congrats again you two!

The Extended Steinkey Family

This post is sooo long overdue! Last fall I had the opportunity to photograph a lovely extended family at my parents’ hobby farm (one of the many perks of booking with me!)

Prior to the shoot, Julie and I discussed the possibility of needing an indoor backup location due to frigid temps in the forecast. In the end, we ‘braved the cold’ and it totally paid off!ย The weather was mild, the light was beautiful and we got a bunch of STUNNING shots. Take a peek!
