Schmidt Twins are ONE - Quad Cities Children Photographer

These two are like living dolls!  Such gorgeous children!

I photographed Cooper and Emersyn when they were just days new and again several months was fun to do their 1 year session and see how much they've grown and changed!

What a stud!

The princess...

We had to do a cake smash and as you can see, Cooper was eyeing his sister's cake right from the beginning...

I am pretty much in love with this shot...hilarity!

Over it...

"Well, if you're not going to eat it...."

 Cooper is so chill and just ate while Emersyn displayed some girl was as though he didn't even hear her. LOL

Accessories make her happy...not messy cake!  Geesh...we should have known! Ha!

A little mama love to end the session.

It's been so fun to watch these two grow this year!  I have loved having them in front of my lens!  Thank you, Jen and Paul for giving me the honor of capturing them in pictures for you.  I hope I get to photograph them more as they grow! :)

The Martinez Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

How gorgeous is this family?!?!!!
Oh my goodness, I adored them.  So sweet and fun and kind and beautiful!  It was a COLD one this afternoon that we did their shoot and little Perla was shaking in her boots, but she remained smiley and never shed a tear...such a sweetie!

This little beauty is so adored by her Mommy and Daddy...

Look at that perfect, little beautiful and I LOVE her name!

Her curls, her sweet little face and beautiful dark eyes...I loved photographing her!

I loved photographing all three of these lovely folks!

It was so great to meet you all!  Thank you for toughing out the frigid temperatures for our snowy session!  You are such a gorgeous family!

The Cole Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

It was so fun meeting this family!  We had to change their session due to weather and it landed on another day that was questionable...windy and cold!  We risked it though and the Cole Family were troopers!  I'd say it was worth it...

I love getting pictures of mom and dad always tends to be about the kids and so it's nice to get images like this!

And husbands...I swear this must be in your blood to do because whenever I ask a man to kiss his wife, it seems like this happens...almost every time!  So funny!

Thank you, Cole Family for being so awesome in dealing with the cold and wind!  You guys are a gorgeous family and it was a pleasure to meet you and photograph you!!!

Prybil Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

This evening was so cold, you really cold!  This awesome family was so amazing about it!!!  I am so glad they toughed it out because I am in love with their pictures!  I've said it before...I am such a fan of families full of boys...probably because my family is full of boys. :)

This is one good looking family!

They clearly have good genes...

Probably my favorite shot from the session!

Thank you so much, Prybil Family for toughing out the wind and chill to have me photograph you!  I loved having you in front of my lens!  I cannot wait for you to see all of the images. :)
