Natalie and her husband are expecting their first baby, a girl, within the next few weeks! Natalie wanted to do a lifestyle session in her home, which I LOVE! We also went around her neighborhood to capture some of the blooming trees. I can't wait to hear of baby's arrival and the name they choose (it's between Olivia and Audrey...awwww!!). Here are some of my favorites from this session:
I did a family session for Lindsey, Wes, and their 6 month old, Raeleigh on a chilly March afternoon. They all did wonderfully considering the weather conditions weren't ideal, and we captured some wonderful family moments! Lindsey and Wes met in college at Florida State University, so we spent part of the session doing FSU photos! They were so much fun to work with and Raeleigh was so easy going and sweet! Check out their session below!
Baby girl Quinn was born in February 2017. I was thrilled to be able to capture the images of her and her family during her first weeks of life. She was so calm and sweet the entire time...in fact, I don't think she fussed once! Her parents, Sara and Scott, were over the moon with their new baby girl. Quinn is their first child, so naturally there is some adjustment to be had in their household! Sara's parents were also visiting at the time of the shoot, and they were incredibly nice people and so helpful. I remember never wanting my mom to leave when I had my first baby too! It is all so overwhelming, so having a close family member who has been in your shoes is essential! Even though it's scary to be left alone with your baby for the first time (how am I going to handle this?!), us moms have way more strength than we realize. Here are some of my favorite images from this lifestyle newborn session!

For awhile I was on a boy streak, and now I am on a girl streak! I photographed baby girl Sage and her family in their Boulder, CO home. I will admit I was jealous of their secluded, open property. They had gorgeous views, and it was a breath of fresh air (literally!) away from the hustle and bustle of the city. They also had perfect lighting in their home, which as a natural light photographer, made the experience so enjoyable and smooth.
Sage arrived on December 30th, 2016, and she joins her big brother Forrest. I am sure those two will have so much fun romping around their mountainous open space one day. Forrest was so fun to photograph, as you'll see from the photos below. He was in such a good mood and LOVED getting his picture taken. He was so sweet with his baby sister and seems to have adjusted very well to the new addition. I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed creating them!
I did newborn photos of this sweet baby girl in late December. Her parents were thrilled to welcome her into their family! I think her momma was the most excited because of all things girly...bows and ruffles galore! She also joins big brother Grayson, who wasn't too sure how he felt about a new baby in the house. We were able to sneak in some sweet sibling photos, even if we did have to bribe him!
Kambria arrived on December 28th, 2016! She joined her big brother, Kamdan, and made this wonderful family complete. I love how easy going and fun this family was to work with, and I am so honored that they asked me to do their newborn photos. It is so much fun to see a couple or a family for their maternity photos, and then to see them again once the baby arrives. As a mother of three, I love to chat with the new parents to see how everything is going (feeding, sleeping, mood, etc.). It is so important to document those first few weeks of life because chances are, you'll forget them. In the sleepless nights and general fog we find ourselves in with a newborn, those precious moments just slip away. I know these images will be treasured for a lifetime. Enjoy.
