If you've been following along since I first posted back in January about this contest, the results are finally in and I'm so excited to share them with you! This was the first year I entered the Shoot & Share photo contest and I was quickly hooked.
Meet Evelyn Rose! Isn't her name beautiful?! Loved it!
Beautiful Aniston is already four months old! Time flies! She did so great for her milestone session! Her mom was a little nervous since Ani was crying when they arrived but I'm convinced she loves the camera!
Sweet girl, Millie was in the studio recently for her 4 month milestone session! I love these sessions because its so fun to see how they have changed since their newborn photos!
Meet sweet Annistyn! She came to the studio at just 12 days new! She was such a good baby for me! Her big brothers were so proud of her and couldn't stop talking about her during the session! So cute!
Albert and Kayla's wedding day was one for the books. It was full of laughter, love, and perfect details. We started out the day at Kayla's parent's farm near Inwood, IA. Her family's farm place sat perfectly on top of a hill with breathtaking views of the river and gorgeous landscape as soon as I walked in, I felt right at home.
Meet this little sweetie, Adlee Ann! I went to school with her daddy and I couldn't help but think how much she looked like him during her session! She has some adorable chubby cheeks!
This was such a fun shoot! Even if it was something like -3 degrees out! When Caitlin booked their wedding date we talked about how originally she had wanted a winter wedding but with so many of their families traveling from farther away they decided it would be better to have it earlier! Since they were having a late September wedding, we decided on a winter engagement session instead!
I have been so looking forward to Chris and Holly's engagement session since she booked me. She is just the sweetest bride-to-be! They were both home from Nashville for the holidays and braved the cold for a snowy engagement session squeezed into their busy schedule!
Meet this little sweetheart, Suttyn Haisley! She has two VERY proud big sisters! It's hard to believe it's been nearly 4 years since I photographed her big sister Collins' newborn session! Time flies! I think Suttyn will be in good hands with her sissys!
I'm super behind on blogging since things have been pretty crazy around here with wedding season in full swing but this little lady's session just needed to be shared! You might recognize her from her fresh 48 session! I absolutely love shooting both fresh 48 and newborn sessions for my clients! It is SO fun to see how much babies change in just a couple weeks!
I first met Lauren when she was a bridesmaid in Mitch and Angela's New Years Eve Wedding a few months prior and I knew right away she was going to be a blast to work with. Her bubbly personality and radiant smile quickly fills the room!
Sweet Emalyn's arrival was an anticipated one! Her parents are friends of ours and I was so excited for them to welcome a baby girl after having twin boys! She was just the sweetest thing for her Fresh 48 session just 4 hours after her birth! <3
Another amazing style shoot in the books! This shoot was a blast! When Kari and I were dreaming up a theme for this style shoot we wanted to combine the soft vintage look of dusty blues, champagne pinks, grays, and white with the upcoming modern trend of copper accents. Tucker Hill Vineyard's barn made a gorgeous venue for the shoot and worked so well with our vision.
Sweet baby Vada Marie! I couldn't get over all her chunk! I loved seeing how much she had changed in just the few days since her Fresh 48 session!
As parents we can't wait to meet our babies once they are born. We spend hours dreaming about what they are going to look like. Will they have Mom's eyes or Dad's nose, Dark hair or no hair, the list goes on and on!
This chunky little man was in the studio recently for his 6 month photos! It's hard to believe he is already a sitting, 6 month old baby! It seems like he was just in the studio for his newborn pictures! He is such a little ham!
It's been on my to-do list for quite some time now to sit down and write out Kohen's birth story. I knew I wanted to write it out so I had it documented while it was still fresh in my mind. So here it goes, Kohen James' birth story.
When sweet baby Leah's momma contacted me to book her session I was a bit in denial that she was old enough to be having babies since I knew her older sister in high school. I'm officially getting older than I think folks! Leah made a surprise entrance when she made her arrival 3 weeks before her due date! She weighed in at just 5lbs 13oz and 20 inches long but she still had some chunk on her! Such a cute little honey, she was so good for her session! Congratulations Sarah and Adam, she is beautiful!
I don't know about all of you but I am sick and tired of all this rain we've been having lately! I'm just dying to shoot some outdoor sessions again, especially families! I decided to share one of my favorite family sessions from last year with you! Meet the Kelderman family! We had the most gorgeous night for their session and I'm pretty sure their family couldn't have been cuter! I am so excited for them to welcome another little one into their family later this year!
I'm Jessica, wife to my husband Tony, boymom to Micah + Kohen, living in Northwest Iowa, photographing brand new babies and gorgeous wedding days. Feel free to stay awhile, browse my recent work, or contact me below!
