A Beautiful Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

When there is so much love in a family, it doesn't matter if it's cold and windy, if your little one pees on you right at the beginning of the session or if it starts to freezing rain 10 minutes after you start taking pictures.  You still end of with pictures that are full of love and joy and beauty.

It was such a pleasure to meet and photograph this lovely family on such a brisk and wet evening.  They radiate love and my camera couldn't get enough of them!








A mother's love...


A father's love...



Those eyes though!



I promise, I got one that isn't silly, but I just loved these two shots too much not to share!



Brother and Sister...


Uncles are the best!






I mean, c'mon!  You just don't get much more adorable than this family!


Thank you all SO MUCH for enduring the weather to stand in front of my lens.  I enjoyed meeting you all and can't wait for you to see all of the pictures!

Rae is 3! - Quad Cities Children Photographer

I love photographing this sweetie and her family every time I get the opportunity!  Raegan is ALL 3! Full of spunk, energy and personality and so stinkin' adorable to boot!




She is definitely WILD and THREE!



Such a beauty.  It was a windy day...wind can be one of the biggest challenges for a photographer, but SOMETIMES it works in your favor...like here...


Big sister was not going to get out of standing in front of my lens...she knows how to be in front of the camera too and my camera loves both of these girls!


Minnie...because she loves her!




Mama Love...




Thank you ladies for putting up with the wind and chilly weather!  You were troopers!  I love every opportunity I get to photograph your beautiful crew!  Can't wait for you to see all of the pictures!

Maeve {7 days new} - Quad Cities Newborn Photographer

Oh boy, this family is as cute as they come!  And you know what?  They are not only amazing to look at, they are just such incredible people.  I just adore them and was thrilled to photograph them as a family of 3!  Sweet little Maeve his the jackpot with these 2 as Mommy and Daddy and I have a feeling they feel like they hit the jackpot with such an incredible daughter!

Pure love and joy...



See?  She can't contain her joy!





With her Mommy having family in Ireland and a love for the country, we just had to incorporate that into a couple of her pictures. :)



What a miracle little Maeve is...her Mommy and Daddy are amazed at her just as they should be!





Even her big sister showed some interest for pictures!  It's been an adjustment for big sis, but she's coming around!


Thank you guys for allowing me some snuggle time with your perfect little girl and for just being so awesome and adorable.  I loved photographing the love you all have for each other.  You make the most beautiful family and I am beyond happy for you all!

Avalyn is 2 - Quad Cities Family Photographer

This little beauty has grown a ton since her 1 year pictures last year!  I was thrilled to see and photograph the gorgeous Steger Family again this year.  They braved the frigid temps and did it with smiles on their faces.  I'd say it was worth it!







Mama Love...





Thank you so much for braving the cold!  It was so fun to see you all and photograph you again.  Happy 2nd Birthday, Avalyn!!!
