So the way this works:

You let me know what size clothing you will need and our Trunk Keeper will bring a wardrobe of clothing to choose from for your session
You can also wear your own Matilda Jane Clothing to your session
I take pictures of you and/or your girls wearing and modeling this adorable clothing
You receive 10 digital images of your choice from the session and print release
$75 of your session fee goes towards NEW Matilda Jane Clothing from our Trunk Keeper
I love having the privilege of being invited into people’s homes for photographs, especially when they are celebrating the welcoming of a new baby! This family is welcoming Leo. He is the newest member of their family and was 15 days fresh when we took these photos. His big sister Avery, a HUGE Star Wars fan, was very happy about showing him off! She loves to snuggle him and I’m sure is very much looking forward to having lightsaber battles with him as soon as he can hold one!
My favorite thing about newborn lifestyle sessions is that I get to see your life in real time. Sure, we do some posed pictures and I try to keep everyone together, but I also get to capture real life as it happens. So many of these images have been captured with only a little bit of direction. Avery reading a book on the couch — totally her idea! Their sweet little kitty came out to greet me (and I’m told she is REALLY shy). I guess Avery is the only one that can get as closer to her as she does and can give kisses. Bam! Captured that! I know they will cherish these for a lifetime!
Since Leo is adopted and they got the call last minute about his arrival, his nursery is still in the works of being completed. However, I love the simple touches they have on it already and I’m glad we were able to use it for some of the photos.
Thank you again for the opportunity to photograph your gorgeous growing family!
Elyse’s momma and I spent several years working together as nurses before Jamie started having babies. Actually, we have known each other for quite a few years. We go back to the “Yellow Mustang Days” as Jamie and I would call them…..
Now, it’s pampers and mini vans and we wouldn’t change it for the world.
So, let’s talk about Elyse. Isn’t she just gorgeous?! And her big brother is CLEARLY in love with her! How sweet is he?!
Elyse is one special baby. She is what they call a Rainbow Baby. It is a term used to describe a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.
“In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.
The storm (pregnancy loss) has already happened and nothing can change that experience. Storm-clouds might still be overhead as the family continue to cope with the loss, but something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness and misery.”
Not only has Jamie’s family lost a baby, but they have weathered multiple other tragedies that left them feeling helpless and lost.
Through it all, their faith never wavered and God prevailed as He always promises to.
They, indeed, have braved quite some storms in their time as a family, but God gave them their long awaited rainbow.
So happy for you all!

This was the first time Owen and I met and he was just such a sweet little boy. We explored, played tag, raced each other (he always won of course), and threw rocks in the water. For those of you who have ever booked a photography session with me, you know, Chandi Kesler Photography, you know that I love to have fun with the kids…..and dads. It’s the best and easiest way to make your session easy and memorable. It’s not easy getting out there to take pics, dress everyone for a family session or convince our significant others that we are getting family photos…..again. Dads usually grumble, but honestly, by the time we are done with our session, I feel like that dads are usually pretty happy and tell me how fun it was…..MOST of the time!!
So, don’t hesitate to reach out and book. I make it easy. Just CLICK HERE TO EMAIL ME and we will get you all set up!!! I can’t wait to meet you!
Jameson was a dream to photograph. His mom brought along a little red fire truck to showcase, as his dad is a volunteer firefighter! He slept like a dream and even showed off his big bright eyes.

6 month sessions are among some of my favorite sessions to do during a baby’s first year. So much progress, so much personality and love. They are so happy. A nice reminder of the simple things in life — love and happiness.
