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. 😉 Here’s a peek at this beautiful Spring session!

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. 😉 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! 😉 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!

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!! 😉 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!

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) 😉 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. 🙂

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. Her outfits were absolutely adorable– I can tell her mama already has too much fun with all the adorable headbands and outfit options for little girls. 🙂 Here’s a peek at her little shoot in the park!

rydlee {6 months}

Sweet little Rydlee just keeps growing, growing, growing! Though she wasn’t the biggest fan of this shoot, she still gave us some adorable shots with those beautiful blue eyes. And of course got lots of snuggles with her family. Here’s a peek at Rydlee’s 6 months!

gist {family} // omaha family photographer

Sweet little William is turning one soon, and what a cutie he is!! It’s a hard age to get smiles all the time, but when you throw in airplanes, tickles, peek-a-boo and a favorite stuffed animal, it all works out. 😉 His parents are the sweetest, and I can tell that he is SO loved. Here’s a peek at our little adventure in the park!

blake {1 year}

It’s always crazy to see how quickly kids change when they’re little. Last time I saw Blake, she was hardly crawling, now, she’s running around everywhere! She’s a cute little blue-eyed blondie who seems like a very chill girl and just turned ONE at the end of May. It’s been such a joy capturing her throughout her first year, just as I did her little brother. It’s also been fun having this adorable family in our neighborhood and having our kiddos getting together to play! Besides getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, I absolutely cannot get enough of shooting in our glorious park! 😉

norris {family}

I love meeting new families, especially when they are as sweet as this trio. It was a pleasure to take their family photos and see how happy their adorable little lady was pretty much the whole time! Her smile is absolutely contagious — and it probably helped that she had her grandma and grandpa in the background making her giggle. 😉 I can tell that Sarah and Nate are natural and loving parents ~ she is lucky to have them! She is their rainbow baby, and this shoot was perfect timing as this is the day after tornadoes swept through Omaha and left a rainbow at the end. A good reminder, that even through the storms, there is always hope.

guzinski {kiddos}

Siblings. Sometimes your best friends, sometimes the ones that most annoy you. Either way, they are family for life! It’s always so fun to capture the interactions between them. These three are 4, 5 and almost 7 and they are so cute! I can already tell that little Danica is going to have some great protectors by her side. 😉 Here’a peek at their fun little shoot!

caitlyn {1 year} // omaha family photographer

Happy 1st birthday, beautiful Caitlyn!

It really feels like just yesterday that I captured Caitlyn as a newborn. This year has flown by! Which, is only natural as I’ve had 3 kiddos keeping me preoccupied. 😉 Caitlyn is a sweetheart with a lot of energy — just like her big sisters. The three girls together are so cute, even if Caitlyn would prefer to be miss independent at the moment. As always, around this age, they would rather be exploring the world around them than sit still…so, I’ve gotten pretty good at following them around with my camera. 😉 Here’s a peek at her first year photos!

blake {7 months}

Due to winter illnesses, we finally got around to taking little Blake’s “6 month photos” even though she was technically 7 months here. 🙂 Glad she’s feeling better as she gave me plenty of adorable smiles. She was so excited to show off her crib and room, and I think I might just have to steal the beaaaautiful mobile hanging above her crib that her mommy made. She has quite the bubbly little personality and it’s been fun watching her grow! Here’s a peek at our fun time together!

marian {1 year}

It feels like just yesterday that I first captured the adorable Marian Rose, and already she’s ONE year old! Where does the time go!? She is such a sweet girl who enjoyed showing me the things she loves doing in her home — such as reading, snacking, practicing walking, and of course, hanging out with mom and dad. I forget how much I enjoy doing more lifestyle shoots until I start capturing little moments in a family’s home. It is fun finding new spaces, backgrounds and utilizing the natural lighting, all while showing the love they share for one another.

Happy Birthday to beautiful Marian! I have so enjoyed capturing you in your first year!

ramey {family}

I love watching families grow through photographs. Last time I saw Claire, she was just a newborn — and now she is 1 year! I first took her sister’s 1 year photos as well a couple years ago. It’s fun to see the resemblance of the two, though Lizzie definitely had a lot more hair as a one year old! Such a cute family with a lot of energy. We ended the shoot with a celebratory cake smash! Here’s a peek. 🙂

jonah {1 year}

Despite the intense heat and Jonah not feeling the best, we still captured some sweet moments for his 1 year photos! Special thanks to the Jeseritz’s as they were patient in waiting for me to recover from having my own babies ~ as Jonah’s first birthday was actually on May 2. He is a sweet boy who is looking more and more like a perfect balance of both of his parents. He enjoyed exploring the amazing backyard of my neighbor’s {bluepom.com} who were willing to let me shoot in it once again! I said it before, what kid doesn’t like a horse tire swing!? Here’s a peek at Jonah’s 1 year photos!

mj {1 year}

Mj’s first shoot was way back when he was a newborn, and now here we are, already over a year old! Such a handsome little man, with both his parent’s dark, brown eyes and hair. And although he didn’t want to give us a ton of smiles, his serious look is absolutely adorable. He is still that squishable little boy from his very first photoshoot, but this time much more aware of the camera and showing his sweet, shy side. Here’s a peek at Mj’s (just over) first year photos!

ryker {2 years}

Last weekend, I spent some time with the Kamin family for Ryker’s two year photos! He just gets cuter and cuter every time I see him ~ and I’ve been photographing him since birth! Those dark brown eyes draw you in and his smile just melts your heart. He is definitely all boy and into sports, cars and trucks, but he also shows his sweet side with lots of hugs and kisses for mom and dad. Here’s a peek at Ryker’s 2 year photos!

paxton {9 months}

Over-sized ties, cute hats, elf PJs and bare butts, oh my! Paxton’s 9 month photos are all too cute. He is seriously one happy baby and SO stinkin’ adorable! It feels like just yesterday that I took his newborn photos. Now, at 9 months old, he is all smiles. His blue eyes, blonde hair and charming ways are going to get him in trouble with the ladies some day. 😉 He brought his sweet sister and adorable cousin for just a few shots too — great moments that hopefully they can look back on for years to come. Here’s a peek at his fun session!
