Wrigley - Quad Cities Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

It is always so fun to meet new families after they have just had their first child!  They have just learned the love that comes with having a child and it is something so beautiful to witness.  It was no different with this family who just welcomed home their beautiful little girl, Wrigley only a few days before I did their session.

She was precious and perfect and sleepy and so calm.  Surprisingly, so were her parents!  Often new parents aren't super calm, but Brittney and Kyle were...even when Wrigley spit up more than they had ever seen her spit up before just as I was snapping sleepy pictures of her!  Ha.  It was so fun getting to snuggle a little sweetie on this cold winter day!

Here is their Sneak Peek...

















Thank you Brittney and Kyle for welcoming me into your home to capture these first precious days with your new love. It was such a pleasure to meet and photograph you and I can't wait for you to see all of your images!

A Fun Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

You guys...this family was amazing!  It was cold out, but they endured the temps and just killed it in their session.  And to say that about a family with 2 boys ages 10 and 12 is actually saying a LOT!  Boys in general, and boys in that age range are often not the most excited to get their pictures taken.  Often they aren't animated and their smiles aren't genuine.  NOT the case at all with Blake and Carter...they rocked it.  And yelling funny, slightly inappropriate things out in public to get genuine laughter is right up my alley...after all, I have 3 boys myself!  :) 

Check out their Sneak Peek below!


















Thank you Ashley, David, Carter and Blake for making my job so easy and fun!  I can't wait for you to see all of your images!!!

The Kari Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

I was so thrilled to see this family again for their pictures this year!  It had been just short of a year since I had seen them when sweet Leela was just days new!  I mean, just look at her!!!  I wanted to squeeze her...she is such a doll and was so smiley and sweet!

Here is a Sneak Peek of the gorgeous Kari Family!

This.Family.Was.Awesome!

I so loved photographing this crew!  They were fun and laid back and full of smiles and energy and love.  It was the first time I have met them, yet I felt like I have known them!  They were so kind and clearly love each other so much which always makes for the best pictures!

Here is their Sneak Peek!












I am in LOVE with the real life captured below...that last picture though.  LOVE!  HA!
