I had one of the most creative, styled sessions this fall with this gorgeous family and I love how the images turned out. I am hoping to host one of these this year as a set of mini sessions or private sessions…..let me know if you’d be interested —- email me at email@example.com
So, Dollcake. Have you heard of them? They have the most gorgeous formal dresses for little and big girls. The best part…..you can RENT them!!! How fun is that?! It’s like being a princess for a day.
Aren’t these dresses she is wearing just simply stunning?
The online boutique I will be using in the future for these sessions is called The Borrowed Boutique. You can check them out, get an idea of what you’d like to wear, and we will begin planning! Contact me to book yours!! I have limited openings this summer and already starting to book up!
What a pleasure to be a part of someone’s life in the most memorable times. This family reached out for a maternity session last summer and we clicked immediately — I laughed so hard during their Maternity Session and found myself laughing at random times over the next few days just remembering silly moments. I couldn’t wait to see them again.
My next meeting with them would be at the hospital for Coleman’s Fresh 48 Hospital Session. Man oh man, this little boy was striking at less than 48 hours old! Those dimples —- and he didn’t get them from Mom or Dad, he was just blessed by them!
So, when they arrived for his newborn session, I couldn’t wait to hang out again! Coleman was perfect!
We incorporated some of Dad’s favorite hunting items, including a special set of antlers. I loved Coleman’s custom made “Coleman” hat, which he also wore at the hospital.
Spending time together with families over multiple sessions is nothing short of awesome. I love getting to know people and the relationship just naturally unfolds. I cannot wait to watch this little boy grow!
Thank you for trusting me!
I cannot say enough amazing things about this family! I have been watching their little ones grow for a couple years and everyone in this family is just so sweet. They make the most gorgeous babies, and the coolest names! Their most recent addition, Maverick, oh, I could just squeeze his sweet little cheeks all day!
They opted for an urban setting for their session because it was different than our previous sessions and we felt like, with their main wardrobe color of green, it would be better suited for something less rural! Love how they turned out! It was fun running around the “big city” for the kids! They got to see big trucks, roam around and climb and look for fun treasures!
I cannot thank you enough for choosing me to capture these fleeting moments!
Hattie entered this world with bang, as perfect as can be! I was very honored to be her newborn photographer!
The birth story Mom and Dad will get to tell their little girl when she is older will be one of a kind. While the family was out of town for a family wedding, this little girl decided it was her day instead. Waiting as long as she could, Mom couldn’t wait anymore and they headed to the hospital. On the way, Mom said, “I’m not going to make it.” And she was right. They pulled over once at a hotel, her husband ran inside to ask for help and he got back in and Mom said, “Drive!” Attempting still to make it to the nearest hospital, still an hour away from home, they pulled over again, this time in a BP gas station parking lot. A few minutes later, they welcomed their little girl, Hattie. Thanks to the 911 operator, this Dad was able to successfully help his wife bring their little girl into the world.
Funny thing is, they were waiting to find out the gender until her birth day. So, when the ambulance showed up to whisk mom, dad and baby away, they still didn’t know, as it was dark and, well, Dad hadn’t really delivered a baby before, he was strictly following the 911 operator’s strict instructions to keep baby right where she was until responders arrived. The responders grabbed baby and Mom and Dad said, “Well, is it a boy or a girl?!”
“You have a beautiful baby girl”……they said.
Now, Mom will never forget the day of her sister’s wedding anniversary, as her and Hattie share this special date!
And they lived happily ever after…..
