Miranda has been a client for FIVE years! The type of client that has become a friend. A friend that texts. That checks in. That loves.

Her second little guy came into the world a little early. It was a scary whirlwind – but he’s here and safe and in their arms!

SWOON! Look at those momma gazes!

Their FIRST photos as a family of four! You guys – such an honor to give you these moments!

LOVE LOVE LOVE that shot!

Miranda & Brooks – thank you SO much for this absolute honor! You guys are AWESOME!

Miranda – I don’t say this lightly – you are one of the most INCREDIBLE mommas I’ve ever witnessed!

You love your babies with a fierce yet tender passion! You are an inspiration!

*M* TURNS ONE!

WELCOMING BABY *R*

I am LOVING newborn sessions lately!

Whimsical and magically posed newborns are not my strength!!

*R* cooperated for a few frames!

*R* was MUCH more cooperative in her momma’s arms!

I just ADORE those shots! Moments like these don’t seem to be important.

Just a routine task – swaddling the baby. But the newborn days go by so fast – and your memory has a funny way of over-writing.

Before you know it – scenes like these are gone. It’s such a beautiful image!

Those MIGHT be my favorite shots from this session! OH MY HEART!

OH WAIT – I love ALL of those!

Katie – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to come capture this sweet time in your life!

I can’t wait to see you guys this summer!

Michaelia and Travis welcomed their second little boy into their SWEET family!

HE IS SIMPLY GORGEOUS!

ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!

Little toes. Big hands. Little babies. Big brothers.

That last shot – momma hugs – daddy smiles. MY FAVORITE!

Baby yawns!

Little *E* – thank you for the hugs and kisses and cuddles! You are going to be a GREAT big brother!

I met Dan last year when he did my first color tattoo!

I’ve gotten to know his wife too – hanging out and talking pictures and babies and life!!

They are awesome people and FANTASTIC parents!

Their little guy *C* celebrated his FIRST birthday earlier this year!

ADORABLE!

SERIOUSLY!

My FAVORITE shots!

And those ones! Such a sweet moment!

He wasn’t too interested in the cake!

Dan & Kaitlyn – thank you SO much for asking me to capture this time in your life!

I took a few maternity pictures for Sierra – and her birth photos – I absolutely HAD to take just a few newborn photos.

Just a few.

That little cutie – he’s a couple months older than my Enoch – just ADORABLE!

OH MY HEART!

I mean – really. Seriously. Absolutely priceless.

I can’t even – the sweetness.

I just adore those shots!

Sierra – thank you – it’s been awesome to walk these last moments of pregnancy and first moments of life with you!

You’ve given me such a gift dear friend!

BIRTH

My friend Sierra asked if I would capture the birth of their 4th child – their 1st girl!

I was so honored and excited! She was due mid-January and we were praying that snow wouldn’t be an issue!

Her mom called me around 6:45 on Sunday the 10th – letting me know that they were heading to the hospital (an hour away) for the night – snow and ice was in the forecast and they wanted to be prepared. I left at 7 – ready for a long night sleeping on lobby couches. As I pulled off the exit from the highway – her mom called again – asking where I was. She was 9 cm and getting ready. WHAT!

I made it to the room at 8 – and that sweet baby girl was born at 8:30 after just a few beautiful pushes!

(You won’t see all the photos in this blog post – but you will still see beautiful ones!)

I mean seriously – that chubby little face!

Sierra & Jose – it’s such a beautiful thing to witness!

Thank you SO MUCH – from the bottom of my heart – for asking me to photograph Rosa’s birth – but more than that – for asking me to be there.

There’s something so miraculous about watching someone take their first breath. Thank you.
