Newborn in-home: Baby "C"

He's here, he's here! I love sharing the excitement with all the new families I photograph. My lifestyle newborn in-home shoots (whoa, might wanna shorten that name) are really low-key. My idea of a good newborn shoot is no crying for baby AND for mom (and sometimes dad, too). I come to you. Use your favorite blankets and swaddles. Determine where in your home I have the best light and away we go!


and baby makes three...

Life as we know it {family lifestyle shoot}

I love photographing realness. Is that a word? Realness (REEEEEL-NES).

What I mean is I love coming into your world and photographing your family doing what you love! The Wagner family owns Archery Field & Sports in Altoona, IA. So naturally we walked the trails they have out there and photographed their life. Did you know this child is 2? Yep, she is 2 and she is a bow shootin' master! Check out their shop! Fun for all ages. 

Contact me about your life. Your everyday or your not so everyday. Tea party in the park? Playing some ball. Baking cookies! Family game night! Let's hang out!
