Leela {6 days NEW} - Quad Cities Newborn Photographer

Could this little family be more perfect?!

It was such a pleasure to photograph Alyson for her maternity session this fall and then to meet gorgeous Leela the other day!  She is pure perfection.  She is so adored!

I love watching new parents and their intense love for their precious baby...

Leela gave us some big open eyes moments and then just couldn't keep her eyes open anymore and went fast asleep.

She is definitely the most amazing Christmas gift they could have ever received...

Thank you all for allowing me into your gorgeous home to photograph your beautiful family.  It was such a pleasure to capture these memories for you.  I cannot wait for you to see every image of your perfect little peanut!

Grayson - Quad Cities Children Photographer

I took the first photographs of Grayson, I was there as he entered the world and I was thrilled to photograph him because he turned....

He is SO HANDSOME!  I love him.

Of course, we had to do a cake smash!

He made enough of a mess, a bath was naturally, pictures of that were necessary!

And then crashing from the sugar high with some Mommy cuddles...

It's ALWAYS so fun to photograph your gorgeous boys!  My camera loves them and I love them too! Thank you for always putting your trust in me to capture these moments!  Happy Birthday, Grayson!

DeCook Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

This family braved frigid temperatures for me and were so incredibly fun and easy to photograph!  It may have been a quick we could all get out of the cold, but I got so many great images for them!  They are just too adorable!

Lawson loving up on Mommy and Daddy...

Adorable siblings!

Lawson is full of spunk and personality...he did so great!  Age 4 can be difficult, but not with him!  He was amazing and adorable to boot!

And candid is always my favorite so this one might be my favorite from the session!

I'm so glad you all braved the cold!  I cannot wait for you to see all of the pictures!  Thank you for making my job easy!

Clearie ~ 10 Days New - Quad Cities Newborn Photographer

Some parents try so hard and wait so long for their babies and I have a heart for those parents as I went through the exact same thing to grow my family!  I adored meeting this family and their sweet little miracle, Clearie.  She is perfection and their love for her is something that has been in their hearts for years and you can just see it bursting out of them now that she is finally in their arms!

The WHOLE family is in love with their new addition...even her fur siblings!

It was such a huge honor to photograph you all and meet you!  I could have snuggled your beautiful baby all day, but it is obvious you've got that under control! :)  Thank you for putting your trust in me to capture this special time for you all!
