Sydney - Quad Cities Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

I love cuddling a new baby during my newborn sessions and Sydney was a dream!  She literally doesn't cry...ever.  It's pretty unbelievable actually.  I was shocked when her Mama told me this, but it turned out to be the truth!  Can you say dream baby?!




Her sister, Marie is so sweet.  She is a busy toddler, but still made time for some loving on her baby sister.




And I think Sydney liked the sister snuggles too!  They will be the best of friends for sure!






This therapy dog is so amazing.  As soon as we laid Sydney on Akin, she almost immediately fell into a deep sleep.  There is something just so calming and soothing about Akin.  Such an awesome dog!


Thank you for inviting me into your beautiful home again, Jodi!  I always love chatting with you and photographing your gorgeous family!  I adore Sweet Sydney and am so happy for you and your growing family!

The Lammers Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

You have got to be kidding me with all of the gorgeous families I've had the pleasure of photographing lately!  I just loved my session with this crew!  I love that they chose downtown and just spent our hour having sun and laughing.  I felt like I had known them all for years!  I was lucky enough to have had the amazing Lisa teach my son last year, so it was nice to see her outside of the school setting.  Her family was just amazing.


When the couple at the center of the family are so awesome and love each other so much, it just makes for a great place for love and fun to grow!  It's clear that it has flourished in this family because each family was just so wonderful.  The cousins had a blast getting their pictures taken and could have probably hung out with me all night if there had been time!  It was just a blast!


















Have you ever seen such a fun Nana and Papa with their grandkids?!



It was such a joy to spend this time with you all!  Thank you for putting your trust in me to capture your memories and your love for one another.  I cannot wait for you to see all of the images!

The Harksen Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

Beautiful and FUN...that's this family in a nutshell.

We had so much fun and the evening was PERFECT for the session!  There were lots of laughs and my camera didn't want to stop snapping pictures of them!

We had to give some squatting lessons, but other than that, they were naturals. ;)















Thank you all for being so much fun!  I can't wait for you to see all of the pictures!  I have LOVED looking through them and hope you love them as much as I do.  You are a beautiful family!
