Nathalie & Luke- spring pictures

We had a great morning hanging out with Nathalie and Luke, and their parents Joe and Michelle. We have had the chance to photograph the entire family before, but this time it was all about the kids!

I'm sure Michelle and Joe don't want to hear this, but looking at these latest pictures makes me realize how Nathalie looks so grown up!

It's amazing to me how quickly Luke is growing up too, he'll be in Kindergarten this fall!

Matt then found this awesome bridge with just the right grips for the kids to hang onto, no worries, Matt and their dad were close by. =)

Cooper { 3 Months Old }

Sweet baby Cooper had quite the morning with us! We had so much fun playing around with him and the AMAZING props and clothes that his momma brought to the shoot.

How cute is this little man?!

Sweet little Cooper got a little mad after he had multiple different outfits on in a few minutes, look how sweet he still looks though.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sweetness between a mom and babe.

We had so much fun with Cooper that we managed to wear him out- so family pictures had to be taken with a sleeping Cooper, I think it still worked well though. =)

When parents email to set up a session and talk about what they want, I usually ask them to bring a few things like textured blankets, sentimental things, etc. Dani definitely outdid herself, look at the pile we had between the two of us- AWESOME!

Dani & Caleb enrolled Cooper in our "Growing Baby Special" so we'll have the chance to photography cutie pie Cooper four more times in the next year!!! We can't wait to see you guys again in a few months!

Kynslie, 6 months old

We had such a good time with baby Kynslie and her parents a few weeks ago! Not only were all three of them up for just about anything we suggested, but they also had the cutest outfits for Kynslie, and adorable and complimentary outfits for the three of them together.

How can you not love dimply baby butts?! One of my favs!

And another favorite of mine, and Kynslie's momma's favorite too!

There's something about this next photo that just seems to show the perfect tenderness between a baby and mom's touch.

Chrissy came out with these amazing sparkly letters, aren't they just PERFECT!! I think every baby should get pictures with wooden letters that spell their name!

After all of that fun Kynslie needed a quick nap, which allowed for some sweet family pictures in bed.

Hello gorgeous family with an awesomely put together wardrobe!!

One last sweet "ballerina" picture, could Kynslie look an sweeter glancing up at her momma?!

Baby Tobias

It's always so intense when a soon to be mom has booked a newborn session and we both sit and wait for the babe to come, so that we can do the session. =) Little Tobias had no intentions of coming out of mom and letting us take his newborn pictures. So after some serious patience and waiting by Shelby and Tim he finally came, and he is beautiful.

Could this family be any cuter?!

There's something about a new mom loving on her babe that I just love!

Toby was such a little trooper for his session, he pretty much let his mom,dad and I do whatever we wanted. See what I mean? He laid there so nicely while Tim placed these Christmas decorations around him, I love it!

Tim leads all of the music at our church, so it was only appropriate to get some pictures of Toby with his instruments.

Shelby had some of the neatest "things" and ideas for Tobias' pictures, I was IN LOVE with all of the antiques that she had pulled for ideas. How adorable is this with his initials?!

And this hat- how ADORABLE!

Tim and Shelby, thanks for a great evening together, it was so fun to meet you three! I can't wait to watch Toby continue to grow and change!

Whitney & Joey: Engagement Session

Meet Whitney and Joey, the first couple to book a wedding with us!

Whitney and Joey live in Texas, so when they knew they were going to be back home for the holidays they got a hold of us to schedule their engagement pictures... for the middle of winter. =) To say that I was worried about the weather was an understatement, I was petrified that it would be freezing outside and we would have to stick with mostly indoor pictures, even though they really wanted outdoor. Boy did we luck out! I'm not saying it wasn't cold, because it definitely was, but it was tolerable. You can't even tell that they're freezing, can you?!

Whitney and Joey were up for anything! They even had a snowball fight, this would be the end result of the snowball fight... a little bear hugging love. =)

We even were able to make a stop at the coffee shop where they had their first date, love it!

There's something about couples that are engaged that makes them glow, I love capturing that love and glow during engagement pictures. Do they not look ridiculously happy here?
Whitney, seriously... are you are GORGEOUS!!

Thanks for a fun winter session guys, can't wait to spend your wedding day with you!

The Martin Twins

Meet Lila...
and Joey.

Lila & Joey couldn't be any sweeter if they tried; see what I mean?!

They were absolutely perfect for the entire hour and a half shoot- do you know how amazing that is for 3 month olds?! They were so darn relaxed and sweet and smiley. Matt and I had so much fun with these two and their grandma. Mom took her other two kids and left to do some errands while we did all of these- what a fun surprise to show her what we got!

As we were just getting packed up the twins started to get a bit fussy, so Grandma and I each took a baby, the next thing you know they are both sound asleep... so what naturally ran through my mind? MORE PICTURES! We were able to get these next ones just before we left, I love them!

Twin shoots can be quite the challenge, but I think they are turning out to be some of my favs, and super rewarding too!
