Meet Miss Emersyn. She was so adorably squishy during her entire newborn at-home photography session. And look at those perfect lips! She arrived the hard way, but completely healthy and has been showing her parents Who’s Boss ever since. Mom and Dad are completely in love with their darling little girl. As first-time parents, they are…

This is Cole. He has grown so much in the past 6-months. I’m not kidding; this next image was taken just this past June! Shocking, isn’t it! This amazing growth, in not only size but also abilities, is why this family decided to take advantage of my Baby Plan. Feel free to scroll back up in…

One of the most exciting things for new parents, after of course actually becoming parents, is getting to experience baby’s first Christmas. We all remember the magic that Christmas held for us as children and we just can’t wait to bask in that joy again with our kids. Little Miss Kate, at 3 months old,…

We all believe that finding a love to spend our life with is one of the most precious things in life. But as life moves forward, so do our dreams. The dream of having a family can seem so simple once you’ve found that perfect person, but God often makes us wait on his perfect…

“We are going to be blue,” said this Mom as we were looking at the weather forecast for Saturday. After just getting her daughter home from yet another surgery, their fall family portrait session was finally coming up this weekend. And the forecast was to be overcast, windy and cold. But, it was now or…

Meet Miss Ripley. She is going to grow up as free-spirited as they come. And all because Mom and Dad like to do things a bit different and with a bit more personality than most people. You can see this in their custom designed wedding bands, their yearly, comical Christmas card, and now here in…

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…

Photographers love to share the images that we create. We’re kind of like that 4-year-old who just colored the most amazing picture and just has to show it to everybody. And just like him, we live for those moments when people pour out tons of praise and love for our work. But I’m finding 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 few years ago, when we thought our family was complete, my husband and I decided to get our family photographed. We wanted what everybody does, to capture the kids in their current state of adorable and have beautiful images of all of us as a family. So I found a photographer whose work I…

  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…

This little ladybug is adorable as she enjoys her one-year-old cake smash, but she is so much more than cute. Let me tell you a little bit about this beautiful fighter and the journey that she and her family have been on this past year. Born several months too early, this little baby girl spent…

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,…
