One year sessions are always sort of bittersweet for me, but I feel like this one is slightly more so. I have been photographing Spencer and his big sister on a regular basis since the day Madden was born and I sure am going to miss our little dates every three months!

Spencer had just had a great nap, so we were all pumped that he was going to be well rested and super happy for his session. Well, sometimes even with the best of naps, you just aren’t quite feeling it. And that’s totally okay, because I think crying littles are just as cute, and we still managed a couple smiles in between tears.  Photo sessions were also never Madden’s favorite, but she now rarely misses an opportunity to cheese it up;)

This perfect little man with the perfectly crazy bit of blonde hair definitely has no idea what is in store for his future. While, I met his parents for the first time at his session, I’ve known his ridiculously sweet Auntie for quite some time now. And that particular Auntie and her family are some of the kindest, most generous and outgoing people I know. There is no doubt this little one will grow up spoiled like crazy, but taught how to stay humble and have nothing but the kindest spirit. Little Aspen definitely made me work this session, but I think every minute spent cuddling in an effort to convince him to sleep (or at least be still for 5 seconds!) was completely worth it <3

I don’t know if it is just the excitement of spring or what, but so many of my friends have recently adopted new puppies or are in the searching stage right now. There is no way in heck I am going to pass up puppy snuggles or the chance to photograph them! And yup, this is something I don’t normally do, but I definitely think it should be. I mean really. Look at this face <3

Meet Colin. This sweet boy was just welcomed to one of the most amazing families I know.  Also one of the loudest, which can only mean he was a whole lifetime of fun ahead of him…and I am so excited to watch him grow up. But for now, we can just let him be little and I definitely soaked up every second of snuggle time during his newborn session. Apparently he is a fantastic and chill sleeper, unless you are photographing him. This session was definitely on his terms and I’m pretty sure that’s also a sure sign that his little personality is going to fit right in with his new family<3

I hope I never ever have to stop photographing Emily and her siblings….and the entire rest of her extended family for that matter!  Not only are they just the sweetest bunch, but it has been so fun to see them grow and all the little personalities of siblings and cousins develop.  During Emily’s six month session, our fingers were crossed that she’d be a little less serious than her big sister, who completely refused to smile for pretty much her entire first year during her sessions. Well, Miss Emily did not disappoint with smiles that were much easier to come by:)

This past week I got to meet little Augustine for the first time and spend a little time with his sweet family. I have known Hillary for at least twelve years now and I was so excited for her, Matt and Mattie to welcome their little boy into the world. Mattie is the best big sister …I mean the best. This little boy is not going to get away with anything as he grows up, nor is anything terrible every going to happen to him because his big sister is constantly by his side. I can’t wait to see their bond grow even more as they both grow up. Auggie was not a big fan of sleeping during his session and when he was awake, he definitely gave us some of the best faces for photos;)  Here are a few favorites<3

This family will always hold a special place in my heart and I am so honored to have photographed so many important milestones in their lives. I also kind of can’t believe that it was already time to photograph Spencer’s six month session! And not only was I ready for capturing six months, we snuck in some family photos and did my best to capture Madden’s quirky personality as well. Madden has become such a great big sister and she constantly makes me laugh. She is also FULL of energy and a bit exhausting. I. Love. Her.  Spencer is also beginning to develop his own personality and finds his big sister fascinating and a bit silly.

When Ashley contacted me to set up Avery’s one year session, I was a bit in disbelief that this sweet girl was already turning one. The last time I photographed her, she was less than two weeks old!  That was also in my old and cramped studio, so the opportunity to spread out in the new space and even shoot outside under the apple trees was so much fun. Miss Avery was simply perfect for her session. Even if we didn’t get much for smiles, her quirky little expressions defined her adorable personality perfectly.

This sweet little girl came into the studio for her very first photo session yesterday, and I was so excited to meet her. I have been photographing Miss Emily’s family for so many years that I’ve lost count now! Emmi has some pretty awesome parents along with a great big sister and brother who obviously are so in love with her. And not unlike her older siblings, Emily decided to challenge me during her session as well. Not so luck for her, I am pretty patient and love a challenge;)

I’d have to say I’m pretty lucky in that I get to spend lots of time with this sweet girl. Over the past year, my family and I have gotten to know Jordan and her family quite well, and we just adore them all. It’s also a pretty good thing that I can’t have any more children, because Jordan is not the best baby to deter you from wanting another!  Not only is she stinkin’ cute, but her personality is simply amazing. She almost never cries, loves pretty much everyone and did I mention how cute she is?! And when it came to photographing her one year session, she was perfect as usual. All smiles and willing to do whatever I wanted, Jordan rocked her session. Here are just a few favorites…
