Today’s the day! I thought, as my due date for my first baby came up on the calendar. My bags were packed, her room was ready and my husband and I were so ready to meet her. Then the day passed and she stayed tucked inside, warm and cozy. Disappointed but still hopeful, I greeted…

“Oh, my gosh. He never sleeps, and now that we are ready to get his pictures taken, it’s nap time!” Mom told me. Today, the whole family, including the big sister who had come home for the weekend from college, had dressed and come down to Cedar Lake for beautiful fall photographs. The occasion was that…

This little buckaroo just turned 9-months-old, and his one-tooth smile will just melt your heart. Dad is a farrier, otherwise known as a horseshoer, and Mom loves to show horses. So to say this little boy is a baby cowboy in training is an understatement. The family really wanted to capture what their little boy was…

Last year, I offered a Limited Edition Enchanted Session where little girls played in the forest and got to experience the magic of fairies. Because we all love fairies when we are young! It was a great success and all of the girls that took part absolutely loved it. These two young ladies were out…

One of the greatest rewards of my job is getting to watch babies grow from just a few days old into walking, talking little charmers. This beauty has grown into such a sweet little girl. And from the beginning of our session to capture her 1 year old baby girl photos, she showed us every single side of…

We’ve all heard the old nursery rhyme about what little girls are made of telling of Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice. Makes you just want to cuddle them up and enjoy their sweetness. This little cherub was everything that girls are made of and her perfection shows in her beautiful newborn portraits. Momma and…

What’s the best thing you can do with your new baby (that you will totally enjoy as well)? Read on sister, you’ll be glad you did. We all have these romantic notions of bringing our newborn baby home and just reveling in the sweetness of being a new mother and bonding with our child. And…

You have just had a new baby, or are about to, and you realize that you must have this little miracle of your’s photographed. But when you search for a photographer, you get thousands of suggestions. You haven’t even decided what brand of diapers you are going to use and Google wants you to wade…

  A short while ago, a family that I was going to photographed mentioned that Mom played the saxophone and Dad played the trumpet. In fact, Dad was the Band Director at a local High School. So I tried to come up with a creative image that could include not only their newborn baby but also…

Sometimes you photograph a newborn and leave the session feeling like Muhammad Ali. “I am the best Newborn Photographer Ever!” Then you come down to earth, race back to your computer and swoon over the absolutely adorable images that you just captured. This session, with its deep colors and gorgeous lighting, created that feeling for…

When this family contacted me about getting their “soon-to-arrive” newborn baby’s photographs taken, they had a special request. As much as they could appreciate the beauty of posed newborn photography, they really wanted to capture exactly how they felt once their new baby arrived. They knew they could travel to a studio and get gorgeous pictures,…

The days that I get to go and work with a family that has just brought home a newborn baby are always a mixed bag of surprises. Sometimes you get a snuggly little one like this who just goes with the flow and makes my job sweet and fun. Sometimes, the baby has had a…

This little man has been my easiest baby to date. I never saw his eyes because he honestly slept the entire time I was with him. Thus, we got to get super creative newborn pictures! This image was so fun to create. I was worried at first about laying him down on this firm surface, but…
