Loved the Christmas Holiday Mini Sessions this year at the studio!! With the addition of a couch, now available for family sessions, it really made for some cute snuggly photos!
2017 had the most gorgeous fall I can remember. Thank you for choosing me to capture it with your family.
I had the pleasure of photographing an old friend’s newest addition….her second baby girl. These little cuties are adorable, just like their mama! Vallie’s big sister, Ivy, was very proud to show off her little sister and, despite that she really wasn’t sure about being in the pictures, she did AMAZING. I mean, look at the pictures we got of them together!! I know that Mom and Dad will cherish these forever!
Thank you again for the opportunity to capture our sweet little girls!
Check out Vallie’s Newborn Session….
Olivia arrived to my studio ready for her first images in this big world. She was born with a full head of hair, long eyelashes with a curl, and the best little lips. She was such a good little model for me. I absolutely loved her session colors — turquoise, creams and yellows. She looked amazing in all of them! Thank you for choosing me as your newborn photographer. It means more to me than any of you will ever know!
World, meet Olivia….
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!
Sometimes you meet people and they leave last impressions on you throughout your entire life. That is Tiffany. She is an amazing friend and a wonderful mother and wife. She would do anything for anyone. Period. Today, she packed up her family of 6 and made the drive from an hour and a half away to to see her Bloomington IL photographer friend – now that is an honor.
Photographing a family of 6 may overwhelm some people and, I will admit, I was nervous. It didn’t help knowing there were going to be older kids (you know those peek-a-boo tricks and duck noises don’t work for kids of all ages). However, I walked away from this session raving to mom and dad about how amazing their family is! Really, the session was fun, easy and laid back for everyone! I would do it over and over again in a heart beat!
And, again, with that gorgeous sunset – it’s all about the timing!
This was my VERY first hospital session/Fresh 48 (minus the photos I took with my own children when they were born). I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit nervous, but when I arrived to their room, the emotions of a brand new baby just took over me and I immediately knew that this was going to be one great session. These two have been through a lot before their baby arrived, from changing delivery dates, having to wait for their c-section, moving rooms, and a rough night of little sleep, but they looked gorgeous nonetheless and were smitten by their new bundle of joy, Carter!
I am blessed to have experienced photographing this kind of session in more ways than one. I love all the details: the wrinkly feet and skin, the security bands, the hospital blankets and cradle, and the smell of a brand new baby. It is one of those things that you wan to remember forever and I’m so glad this couple will always have these to cherish!
If you’re interested in a Fresh 48 hospital session, please let me know. I will be offering a VERY limited amount of these throughout the year.
TGIF! Here’s your random fact!
