As a mother myself I learned very quickly how much life changed for my husband and I when we welcomed out first little one. When I met little Gavins parents around 2.5 years ago, I slightly envied their carefree lifestyle. We moved into their neighborhood across the street from them and would see all the fun adventurous things they were regularly headed out and doing. It reminded me of our days prior to children. While I would never change the life I have with my little ones, I certainly miss those days often. Over the years we have gotten to know this sweet couple (now little family) and are quite fond of them....
This family one of our families closest friends in the area and I am so blessed and adore that they choose me to capture their growing family and fill their walls with all the special memories. I started photographing them as a family of three with their gorgeous pups. It was very much meant to happen that this session took place when it did and that we included their dogs. Very sadly, shortly after their first session, they lost their sweet Kora. It was a hard loss for the Kirk family as she was part of their family.
As soon as the Kirk family found out they were expecting their second child, they reached out...
A rainbow baby is a baby born shortly after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or death in infancy. This term is given to these special rainbow babies because a rainbow typically follows a storm, giving us hope of what's to come.
Kayleys mom experienced more loss than any person ever should along the path to be a mother. I admire this woman with my whole heart and know without question that Kayley was the answers to her daily prayers.
"I believe that our babies choose us to be their parents. The baby chooses their time and method of conception, the length of their pregnancy and the time and method of their birth. It...
We know that planning for a newborn session can be a bit overwhelming. Here are some tips to help you prepare so that your session runs as smoothly as possible. This is such a special and important time to document. We don't want you, as parents, to have a single worry going into this. We are always happy to make suggestions and answer any additional questions you may have.
AVOID SPICY FOODS
Nursing moms, be sure to be cautious of what you eat 24 hours prior to your newborns session. Spicy foods can often make a nursing baby uncomfortable or upset their tummy. Avoid spicy foods and any food the baby may have allergies to at all cost.
Can you believe it? I actually have a life outside of photographing beautiful women, children and families and squishy little babies! I would love to let y'all in on what makes me ME and share a little about my sweet family.
I have always felt that getting to know your photographer will allow you to be more comfortable and relaxed through out each session. While I am a huge people person and I get along with most everyone, I know that my personality isn't for everyone. I know that there will be clients who come long that I walk away knowing they will be life long friends before I have even photographed them and there will also b...
This handsome guy makes me an aunt for the 10th time!
I am so proud of my little (big) brother as he is now one heck of a daddy. He is the last of all of us children to have children. While he has been in the dad role for awhile now loving miss Nadalee as his own... seeing him with his son really makes my heart smile. I LOVE what I do, but let me tell you, I love it so much more when the baby I am photographing is MY very own nephew :)
Such a proud aunt and sister!
And Lastly I couldn't not share this one! Because its my family I am allowed to post their silly shots! Tazzs face w...
It had been awhile since I had me a precious baby girl in my studio to snuggle on, I was so overjoyed to photograph this beautiful little lady and her gorgeous older sister! She was so peaceful when she slept and did such a wonderful job letting me move her around and pose her. During nursing breaks miss addy and I had fun letting her strike a few poses too. I cant forget to mention that both these beauties are Denver Broncos fans and I LOVED that their parents wanted to incorporate that into their session.
Baby Mason is one very loved little man! The birth of this sweet boy has brought happiness to so many. While his momma and daddy are so proud and their hearts are so full, Mason has 4 older sibling who love and cherish him so much. Being able to travel back to my home town to capture these sweet moments is something that I am so grateful for. I may not get to go home to visit often but when i do get to go for a reason like this it makes my heart swell. <3
