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!

 

 

 

Miss “A” & Mr. “L”: Children’s Session

I had such fun meeting up with a high school friend and meeting her adorable children.  I quickly realized I had to adapt and turn the session into a lifestyle session and photograph the kids just being kids! Neither one was super pumped about getting pictures taken, so I just followed them around the playground and captured their true selves and emotions.  I just love the result.. Lifestyle photography is so fun- not posed at all.  Just let the kids lead and shoot like crazy.  Enjoy a few of my faves from their lifestyle playground session!

 

 

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!

Children’s Session: Mommy’s Wedding Dress

I had a unique session request come through a few weeks ago- a mom wanted to do a session letting her four young daughters try on her wedding dress! I was so excited and could not believe how fun and special that sounded. I might just steal this idea for my own daughters- it was so much fun!

I could just see this sweet mom reliving her wedding day as she watched her daughters’ eyes light up as they put on this gorgeous dress and played with all her wedding day jewelry and accessories.  It was hard to keep them looking their age in this dress, because these little girls are all so.stinkin. beautiful!  There were so many giggles and smiles- I hope you enjoy this special session as much as I did!

 

 

 

 

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!

 

Goss Family Session

I got to do this extended family session a couple weeks ago and had a blast with all of them.  It was a little chilly, but can you believe the weather we have been having here in December! I hope you enjoy my favorites from their session!

 

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!

 

Little Miss “M”: 18 months session

This little sweetheart is 18 months already! She has been so much fun to photograph at her big milestones.  Her mom told me that one of her favorite things right now is her big watering can- she loves carrying it around everywhere.  So we let her have it in some of her pictures- so adorable!  I hope you enjoy her sweet smiles and giggles.

 

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.
