Miss Gwen is turning one! How is that remotely possible? This sweet tiny babe that I took photos of in the hospital hours after she was born is almost one? This last year has just flown by. You know, I never understood the saying, “The days are long but the years are short” until I became a mother. Cherish these sweet moments, friends. Before you know it you’re kids will be in school and you’ll be wondering where your babies went.
Joe + Sam are a beautiful example of Christ. They have been fostering these two sweet babies for quite some time and now they are in the process of adopting Raylynn! If you notice, there are a few photos without sweet Logan in them it’s because they don’t usually share little man’s face on their social media and they wanted a few of Miss Raylynn when their adoption is finalized. I am so incredibly excited for them as well as inspired by + in awe of the love of Jesus that flows through this beautiful family. Congratulations Muhlberg family!! I’m so excited for what lies ahead for all of you.
I swear I don’t order my families from a model catalog. I know I say this a lot but this family is crazy beautiful!! I had so much fun playing with Noah. His mom and dad are clearly smitten with this sweet, funny, playful little guy. I can’t wait to meet miss Neve next year. Sweetest little family ever.
These four are incredibly sweet and so fun. George brought along a few toys and a super spunky + playful attitude. I could have chased this sweet boy all day. I dare you to scroll through these images and not smile. I can’t do it!
Parent’s with boys know how photo sessions go. I mean, just last week we took our family photos and it started with bribery and threats. They just don’t get on board. However, I like to think I have tons of fun with my family session and, even when parents are worried about their kiddo cooperating we end up with beautiful, fun, and REAL family photos. The Alvis family was no exception. These three boys were spunky and so silly and we ended up with perfectly imperfect photos (and a few perfect ones too!).
I would be totally offended if you tried to argue with me about the fact that these three are the most gorgeous family ever. I mean HOLY COW, they look like they belong in a GAP ad. Also, they happen to be so stinking sweet and genuinely fun to hang out with.
Libby and her parents run The Marmalade Lily, a GORGOEUS wedding + event venue just outside of Cincinnati. It also has tons of wildflowers and they host U-cut events! Needless to say I was completely stoked on the idea of shooting their family session there and it turned out perfect! (Shameless plug… if you are getting married at Marmalade Lily I totally want to photograph your wedding!)
Thank you for sending me home with some beautiful, fresh blooms. Libby, you’re the sweetest!
Madisen was literally such a CHAMP on Archer’s birth day. First of all, she was more than a week overdue. And THEN she pushed for 3 hours. Oh my goodness, she was tired but such a strong human. Meanwhile, can you just see the love and support pouring out of Matthew? These two were amazing! Thank you for trusting me to be a part of one of the best days of your lives.
Let’s just put this out there… a stormy day (hello lightning during our session!) + a teething 1 year old + a high energy, TONS OF FUN little guy does not always equal a great session. But let me tell you, I ADORE these images. They are real and they are full of interaction and energy. We succeeded in getting some great family photos and portraits of Emmy for her 1st birthday shoot and then she pretty much decided she was over it. So, we went with the flow! Whatever Emilia and Quinn wanted to do, I captured it. And I think Jon + Kelly will look back on these photos and remember them exactly as they were at this age, and THAT, my friends, is my ultimate goal. To take you back to this exact day; how it felt, how it sounded, and the love that surrounded you.
Someone please tell me if this isn’t the best meme-worth photo ever?
When your aunt + grandma are incredible florists you get a flower wall & crown for your first birthday shoot! How stinking perfect is Evie? I just wanna gobble those sweet baby rolls up! Happy birthday, Evie-girl!
Hello, sweet girl. We’ve been waiting (what seems like) FOREVER to meet you. I saw no photos of Rosie before I arrived at Scott + Erika’s to take her newborn photos and I was just so smitten. You see, I love ALLLLLL the babies but especially ones with double chins and rolls for arms. Man, oh man, was Rosie so SO SO stinking beautiful! It’s been 14 months since I had the privilege of photographing Scott + Erika’s wedding and now this perfect little girl joins their family! I love you three so much, Congratulations!
