Photographing Ryan and his big sister, Izzi, is like night and day. And pretty much exactly like shooting their parents. Izzi hates smiling for the camera just like her dad. And Ryan LOVES it…just like his mom;) And it turns out Ryan REALLY loves being outside. So some perfect weather for his nine month session was not just awesome for smiling and practicing a perfect three-point stance, but also for making some bright blue eyes sparkle like crazy!

After a full year of sessions ranging from newborn to one year with Easton, I was beyond excited to meet Easton’s new little brother. In just the first few minutes of arriving, it was pretty clear that we were probably not going to get any sibling shots. And it’s not the Easton doesn’t care for Maddox….he just doesn’t really seem to care. Period. Which was totally okay, because on his own he was totally hamming it up. And as far as Maddox goes, he was a perfect little sleeping angel<3

I cannot believe this day finally came and how it worked out so perfectly. So long, but just so perfect. After 18 hours of labor which included a little more than four hours of pushing, Miss Liv was able to finally hold her sweet boy in her arms. Like many births, there were some intense moments and with her mom, her best friend and her sister at her side, Livanah was a rockstar and handled every small step like the amazing new mother I just knew she would be. Liv, I am so proud of you and so so soooo happy for you and the rest of your family. This sweet little Oliver was beyond blessed since before he was born and is going to grow up knowing a love like no other<3  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for asking me to preserve your special story<3

As a contracted photographer at CMMC, I photograph quite a few babies every month. And I think it’s pretty safe to say that a majority of those babies are between 7 and 8 pounds. So, when I met Miss Josephine in the hospital and snuggled all 10 pounds of her, I was in love. I love love love me some baby chunk. And maybe she really caught on to that, because Josephine had other ideas when it came to her studio session and we spent a good bit of time snuggling her to calm her for all the shots I had planned for her. I’m super grateful and honored that her mama scheduled her studio time and hope to see this family back again soon<3

After three years of trying to get pregnant with the IVF help, Brittany and Mike unexpectedly discovered that someone had other plans and they became pregnant all on their own. Madden is truly a little miracle and I’m not sure who is more blessed. Brittany and Mike for their sweet miracle or Miss Madden for being blessed with two of the most amazing people I know for parents. Either way, I am so excited that they are all finally together and their little family is complete<3 Here are a few favorites from Madden’s newborn session.

I cannot even begin to tell you how fun it was to shoot this gorgeous mama’s maternity session at the beach. After a drizzly rainy two days of weather, we drove as the last bits of rain continued to fall. And as we stepped onto the beach, skies began to clear. After all the struggles this sweet mama has gone through, the clearing of gray skies as she stepped onto the beach can only be sign of what’s to come for her and her little boy. Liv, you are such an amazing human being and I cannot wait to watch you become the amazing momma that I have no doubt you will be <3livanah maternity 3 1024x505 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 4 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 5 1024x505 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 7 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 9 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 10 1024x773 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography livanah maternity 1024x708 Livanah | Beach Maternity photography

One of the things I love most about my job is word of mouth referrals. And thanks to Lux’s sweet mom, I got to meet Kobe’s awesome parents and photograph his newborn session last week. Although, the little mister was actually four weeks old already…but you’d never know because he was born three weeks early and is still just a peanut<3

When I got an email from Michael asking if I was available to photograph his family during their Maine vacation, there was no way I was not figuring out a way to get them in the schedule. The last time we did this was four years ago…and well, when they are coming all the way from Ohio, I’m definitely going to find a way to help them out. So, we lucked out with absolutely perfect weather and met at Perkins Cove just as we did four years ago. And everyone was exactly the same. Ha! Michael and Susan maybe, but holy heck these four kids have grown!

Thanks again guys for being so awesome and I hope you come back sooner than three or four years for another visit<3

I had so much fun shooting Brittany and Mike’s maternity session and was super looking forward to meeting miss Madden and shooting her newborn session once she arrived. But Britt and Mike had another idea and during dinner after we left the beach, they asked if I’d photograph her birth. Of course I said yes!  Birth stories are one of my most favorite things to do<3 So we chatted for a bit and it was set. Brittany was scheduled to be induced, I got it right into my calendar and all was peaceful and calm and right in the world. Buuuuut…..Madden was not having any of this planning nonsense. The Friday before the scheduled induction, Brittany’s fluid was lower than the doctors like and she was admitted. This was followed by nerve-racking day of questioning whether or not Madden would arrive while I was shooting a wedding, and then finally…on Sunday afternoon, Miss Madden Nancy made her big debut and met her two amazing parents for the very first time<3

There are too many times in this life that we get so wrapped up in the day to day, that we sometimes….and always without such intent….forget to take a moment to breathe. To be in the moment. To remember the little things. When Catherine contacted me to do this session, you could hear it in her voice. After so much love and quality time spent with their exchange student, three days left with her suddenly felt like the next five minutes. I quickly was able to adjust my schedule and met up with Lotte and her sweet American family before she jetted back home to Germany.

Catherine and Ryan, thanks so much for asking me to shoot this for you. And Lotte, it was so great to meet you. It’s pretty clear that Miss Amelia is going to be missing you beyond words<3
