archer // 1 year

Sweet little Archer is turning ONE! It has been a joy watching him grow this last year, he just keeps getting cuter and his facial expressions are the absolute best. Just in time for Mother’s Day, here are a few sweet moments captured between him and his mama, as well as his dad and his bear that represents big brother.

kamin // family // 2020

It always amazes me how quickly kiddos grow! And when you don’t see them for a whole year, they truly look like “little giants” the next time you do see them. πŸ™‚ I always enjoy catching up with the Kamin family and capturing their little cuties. Ryker is turning 6, and Rydlee is 3! Happy Birthday to them! Here’s a peek at their session.

colette {7 months}

I have said this before, but gosh my friends really do make cute babies! Little miss Colette is a doll and looks so muchΒ  like her two older sisters when they were that little. So squishable, I could snuggle her all day. Love watching these little ones grow up and am happy to be capturing these moments that go by so quickly. Here’s a peek at her 7 month photos!

christian // one year // 2019

Sweet little Christian turns ONE soon and is a an absolute cutie. He did wonderful during his session and may win the award for best cake smasher! There was no hesitation when his cake was placed in front of him, and eventually his whole foot got in on the fun. Here’s a peek!

archer // 6 month photos // omaha, ne

I absolutely love capturing a baby’s whole first year. They change SO much, and it is so important to capture these milestones before they are gone! Even the simplest things such as nibbling on their toes lasts for just a few weeks, so I’m glad we were able to capture that during the session. Mr Archer could not be any cuter! I haven’t seen him since his newborn session, and he has grown so much and is just the sweetest little man. I love that we once again incorporated his Harrison bear, who represents his older brother that is watching from above. Here’s a peek!

lydia // 1 year

Sweet little Lydia has the best big brown eyes! She just turned ONE and is absolutely loving life. While the rest of us were freezing after stepping outside for a few shots, she became all smiles with the frigid air and gusty winds. Too cute! Here’s a peek!

It’s been so fun watching Delaynie and Easton grow over the last few years! They are both like living little dolls — absolutely precious, and now, they’re looking forward to being a big brother and sister!! So excited for this family and their new adventure which awaits. Here’s a peek at our shoot surrounded by beautiful greenery.

lydia // 6 months // omaha family photography

I started this shoot with an unexpected assistant! Little Marian is so cute with her camera and can come help me anytime. πŸ˜‰ She is also a great big sis to Lydia, who is now 6 months! Lydia is such a sweetie with the biggest brown eyes and most contagious smile. Here’s a peek at their (chilly) Spring session!

When two families come together for a session with a total of 5 kids, you’ve got a shoot full of energy and just plain fun. I’ve mentioned before how different it is photographing older kids as they actually sit still (vs littles who run away!) and that was the case for all of these little models — except we of course had to do some crazy/wrestling/jumping shots. πŸ˜‰ I enjoyed photographing both families along with one of their grandma’s on a gorgeous fall evening. Here’s a peek!

jardine // siblings

{Siblings} Such a happy bunch these three were. We went on an adventure at lake Zorinsky, and all seemed to love being in front of the camera! It was always, “me first!” when asking to take a shot. A little different from the often little ones running AWAY from the camera! πŸ˜‰Β  I love their color combo and how they all looked cozy in this yucky fall weather we’ve been having. Here’s a peek!

kamin // family

Little Rydlee is now 18 months, and without realizing it at first, we went back to the same place we captured her big brother’s 18 month photos in downtown Elkhorn — so many years ago! So fun watching these kiddos grow. Rydlee is definitely breaking in some new teeth, so wasn’t the happiest camper, but we still managed to get a few smiles and shots without the fingers in the mouth! πŸ˜‰ Puddle jumping definitely brings out pure JOY! Here’s a peek at some cute Kamin photos.

lukehart {family} + emelia 1 year

The flowers are finally blooming, the grass and trees are a beautiful green, there’s no better time to take family photos! I always have a great time capturing the Lukehart family. Emilia took a bit longer to warm up to the camera, but boy is she one CUTE one year old! She especially enjoyed her cake smash at the end. πŸ˜‰ Here’s a peek at this beautiful Spring session!

delaynie & easton // 1 year

Delaynie and Easton are absolutely precious. It was so much fun capturing their first year photos ~ even though they weren’t too keen on giving me smiles. Mr Easton warmed up a little bit, while the little lady gave me more of the serious attitude. They really remind me of my twins. Maybe it’s just a boy/girl thing? πŸ˜‰ Either way, they are ADORBS. Here’s a peek at their fun little session ending with a cake smash!

nicholas // 1 year + family photos

Nicholas is looking more and more like his big brother with those big blue eyes and blonde hair. Two little studs and so sweet! We had fun exploring the park, though I found out one of my favorite 100+ year old trees was cut down! It made for a nice backdrop, but it’s still so sad to see such a large tree like that go. Nicholas even got a little taste of a cupcake to celebrate his big day. Happy 1 year big guy!

asher {1 year}

I feel like I have been surrounded by one year olds lately! All my clients babies all of a sudden are no longer BABIES! They now have little personalities, more hair, some are walking and even talking! Oh how so much changes in just a year. Asher is the sweetest, most squishable little boy, and if ever two kids looked alike, it is he and his big sister. I always enjoy spending time and catching up with the Poppen family! Here’s a peek at Asher’s one year!

ryker {4 years}

And just like that, Ryker is four! We celebrated by capturing some sweet moments with his parents, sister and grandparents, and even got a little fresh air in this crazy, unpredictable Nebraskan weather. πŸ˜‰ Here’s a peek at handsome mister Rykeroo!

rydlee 1 year

And just like that, Rydlee is one! She is walking, babbling and ready to take on another year! She is finally getting to the age where she can really start playing with her big brother — and they are so sweet together! Here’s a peek at her adorableness and cake smash!

abigail // 1 year

Though sweet little Abigail doesn’t yet understand the concept of turning one, she can someday look back at these sweet photos we captured to celebrate HER, because, well, turning one is kind of a big deal — for both her and her parents! πŸ˜‰ She looked so cute in her holiday attire, and then, during her cake smash. Here’s a peek at beautiful miss Abigail’s one year photos!

alivia // 1 year

I loved taking photos of sweet Alivia and her family over the summer, so was happy to also take her one year photos! She is still such a doll and could most definitely be a little Gerber baby model. She is probably one of the most dainty babies I’ve seen when it comes to a cake smash ~ just nibbled off a little corner and was satisfied. πŸ˜‰ Here’s a peek at her first year photos! You will most certainly want to squish her up she is so sweet!

rydlee {9 months} // omaha child photographer

How lucky am I that this is the 4th time I’ve captured sweet Rydlee, and she’s not even one!! πŸ˜‰ I love that her parents see the importance of capturing each milestone over the year, as they change SO much. She is a little cutie who lets her big brother give her all kinds of squishy hugs. Here’s a peek at her 9 month session!

(more…)

leila + sloane {siblings}

Leila + Sloane, it has been so much fun watching them grow! Still feels like just yesterday that I took their newborn photos. Even though poor Sloane wasn’t feeling the best, we got a few smiles out of her still — just leave it to peek-a-boo, puddle stomping and dancing to their favorite songs! Here’s a peek at their shoot on a gorgeous fall day.

asher {6 months}

Oh Asher, you are as cute as a button, just like your big sis!

6 months and quite the little personality already, this little man didn’t give me all the smiles, but, was definitely curious about the camera. Those big eyes just captivate you! He is such a chill, little dude who doesn’t seem to mind his big sis giving him lots of smooches, hugs and cuddles. It’s always fun watching siblings interact.

Here’s a session full of lots of cuteness and love!

joey {1 year} // omaha child photography

It was a pleasure meeting up with the Johnson family last week and capturing their sweet little boy who is about to turn ONE! He is such a cutie, with blonde hair and blue eyes (a heart-breaker one day I presume) πŸ˜‰ Though a little intimidated by the camera at first, he warmed up eventually, and I would have never believed his parents that he smiled when someone fake coughed, until I tried it towards the end. What a cute reaction I got! Here’s a peek at Joey’s first birthday photos filled with balloons, cute hats, his side-kicks (bear and puppy friends) and most of all, love. πŸ™‚

abigail {7 months}

So glad my clients picked out a new park I’ve never shot in — the lighting and everything about it was just beautiful! And Abigail is such a cutie — just all smiles when I first met her! Luckily, that smile stayed around for most of the shoot, though she got a little hot and tired towards the end.Β Her outfits were absolutely adorable– I can tell her mamaΒ already has too much fun with all the adorable headbands and outfit options for little girls. πŸ™‚ Here’s a peek at her little shoot in the park!
