Little Miss R: One Year Cake Smash

This little sweetheart recently turned ONE! I got to go to her first birthday party and capture some special memories for her sweet parents.

We had such a fun cake smash and then she even shared some of her cake with her puppy- it was his birthday too! Enjoy a few of my favorites from her gallery!




Little Miss R: One Year Session

This little cutie recently turned one and I got to capture all the cuteness.  Let me tell you- she is busy!! I absolutely love how she sticks her tongue out and she has so many cute expressions! Enjoy some of my favorites from her gallery! Happy Birthday sweet girl!


Little Mr. P: Two Year Session

This handsome little guy recently turned TWO! Let me tell you, I know that for two year sessions, I’m gonna have to do a lot of chasing them around (which I love, by the way… I love photographing this age as they actually are- BUSY!), but this toddler gave me a full workout! He was so so busy! We did a lot of running and exploring, but the result was so worth it! He is seriously a mini model.  So handsome!!

I hope you enjoy my favorites from this two year session!


Little Miss “A”: One Year Old

This little sweetheart turned one a few weeks ago and we did this fun session to capture all her cuteness before she grows up and changes so fast.  She had the most adorable range of expressions and I had to work for it but she gave me a few smiles too.

I hope you enjoy all her sweetness!

Little Miss “E”: One Year Cake Smash

I can’t believe this sweetheart is ONE already! Time goes so fast- it seems like yesterday I was doing her newborn pictures and now she is already one year old! She is absolutely adorable- she had so many giggles and sweet smiles, especially for her daddy! We had a fun cake smash at the end of the session too.  I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from the session!




Little Miss K: Two Years Old

This spunky two year old gave me a work out a few weeks ago! It is so fun to chase this age around and capture them as they actually are: BUSY!  I even got to snap a couple pictures of her big brothers too. I hope you enjoy her sass and sweetness- Happy 2nd Birthday Kate!


The Boerner Family

I loved getting to photograph this family a couple weeks ago.  This little sweetheart turned one and is just so happy and simply adorable.  I hope you enjoy my favorites from their session!


Our Favorite Little Mister Turns ONE!: Happy Birthday

May 26, 2016 at 12:25 a.m. my heart skipped a beat as I held you in my arms for the first time.  I was instantly in love with your little face, as I was already in love with you from your kicks and wiggles from the last 9 months in my belly.  You go by many names, among which are B4, Beckers, Little Mister, Stinkeroo, and Bear.  Your 3 siblings absolutely adore you.  You are the most cuddly, sweet, even-keeled little boy.  God must have told you that as the 4th child, you needed to be an easy one, and I am so thankful for that.

I can’t believe you are already 1 year old today!  You crawl everywhere, furniture surf, (you aren’t quite ready to let go, but you are so close!), eat everything I give you, and only really dislike a few things.  Your favorite foods are bananas, yogurt bites, and anything with cheese. You have six teeth, but I think another one is coming soon.  You say bye-bye, Da-da, Nigh-night, and point at everything that you find interesting.  You have such a funny sense of humor and purposefully try to make us laugh at things you do.  You love to copy sounds you hear and gestures people do to you.

I love you so much little boy. Happy Birthday.

Little Miss “M”: First Year Cake Smash

This adorable little sweetheart turned ONE a couple weeks ago and I got to photograph her first year pictures and cake smash.  She has the most gorgeous blue eyes and when she smiles you can’t help but smile back at her- especially when she has frosting all over her face!  I hope you enjoy this pink one year session!


So Many of My Smiles Begin With You: Happy 4th Birthday!

4 years ago, the world gained this sweet, sassy, spunky, sparkle-y bit of sunshine.  Little girl, so many of my smiles begin with you.  You make me laugh out loud on a daily basis, and sometimes I look at you and can’t believe how beautiful you are.  We talk a lot about inside beauty as opposed to outside beauty, and I pray that you will grow up to be just as sweet and beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.  This year you have grown in love and empathy for others, you are learning to importance of loving and serving others before yourself, and most importantly, you have shown a small budding of love for God that I pray grows into an acceptance of His love for you and the grace He offers to you through His Son, Jesus Christ.

The blog shows a few of my favorite pictures of Brielle  (and some of her favorite people) month by month this past year starting with her 3rd birthday last year, and ending with a couple pictures from her 4th birthday party that we had last night.

I hope you enjoy her journey as a three-nager!

I am so thankful that God put you in our family- we love you sweet girl! Happy 4th Birthday!

4th Birthday Party!

We had a princess party for our sweet princess.  The party was in full swing as

15 little princesses were dancing, playing, and having fun.



And then there was a knock at the front door…

Ever After Events- Princess Rapunzel and Princess Belle


Rapunzel and Belle showed up to her birthday party! She was stunned into silence, and then ran up to hug Rapunzel.
