4 days new! - Quad Cities Infant Photographer

I love referral business. Aside from the fact that it is the biggest compliment I can receive when a client refers a friend to me, I feel like I have some sort of connection with the client even though we have never met.  Also, I have yet to have a client that I haven't loved working with, so it's likely that their friends and family will be similar to them and I will love them too!
This was the case with Jude, Stacey and Baby Easton...they welcomed me into their home, let me hold and snuggle baby Easton, their 1st child who was only 4 days old, let me roam all through their house to take pictures wherever I pleased and let me manipulate their sleeping baby's body into whatever position I wanted for pictures...all only seconds after meeting them!
They were AMAZING to work with and their Sweet Easton...holy moly, he was the sweetest, tiniest little boy ever!  I am a bit partial to little boys seeing as I have 3 of my own! :)
And how is it that all of my clients look so darn amazing mere days after birthing a child?!
Sweet Easton stayed sleepy for me which made for an easy, relaxing photo session!

I could have run out the door with that sweet boy!
And what a gorgeous child he is in addition to his sweet, calm demeanor!!!

He is so loved...these are some of my favorite shots from the session...

Sessions like this make me wish I had an infant photo session to do every day!
Thank you so much Jude and Stacey for allowing me into your was so amazing to spend time snuggling such a new little sweetie and taking his pictures were just an added bonus! :)

Out with a bang - Quad Cities Family Photographer

I was thrilled that my last family photo session of 2012 was the Rahe Family! :)
Unfortunately, they had to be reschedule due to rain on their original session date.  The weather ended up being GORGEOUS...and so is this family!
I photographed the Rahe Family a year ago for the first time and was so excited they allowed me to capture their family in pictures again this year.
The kids have grown up so much in the last year!
Brayden is as adorable as ever...and tiny!

And Katelyn has grown up and matured so much!  She is a beautiful girl to say the least!

I love capturing candid moments like this!

It was such a fun session.  They are so easy to photograph and it was such a great way to end my family season for 2012!

Thank you again, Rahe Family for allowing me to photograph your family again this year...I had so much fun with you all and my camera clearly loves you!
