summer // 2020

I am always so thankful for referrals and meeting new families ~ especially ones that live right in my neighborhood! This sweet family of 5 (+ grandma!) came on a little adventure with me to Zorinsky, and we could not have asked for a more beautiful night! Wow. That sunset!! They were all so photogenic, even though running away from the camera was much preferred by the littles. πŸ˜‰ Here’s a peek!

colton // newborn // 2020

I met Lisa more recently at our bible study group, and I was so happy when she asked me to photograph their expected little bundle! Colton is absolutely adorable and clearly likes to be snuggled. He was pretty upset right before the laying down pose with mom, but as soon as I set him next to her, he was immediately calm and turned his face to her. Such a beautiful bond they already share. They came with the idea of incorporating dad’s love of hunting into the session, and I love those shots turned out. Little Colton is so loved and a perfect gift from God.Β

levi // newborn // 2020

When I first saw little Levi, I could see so much of his big brother and sister in him. Having photographed all three of them as newborns, memories of the little details came flooding back of the sibling’s sessions. They all have the same nose for sure! He is such a sweet boy that is welcomed into an equally sweet family. Here’s a peek at our session!

cameron // newborn // 2020

Little Cameron was just over three weeks old when I first met him, and though babies around that age are a little more awake, this guy melted into a deep slumber pretty soon after we wrapped and rocked him a bit. Such a lucky little boy to be surrounded by such sweet parents and the most gorgeous little nursery. Here’s a peek at our time together!

brennen // newborn // 2020

Baby Brennen is one month old, and what a CUTIE he is! Big sister, Edie, is already so protective and loving towards him, I can tell they will have lots of fun playing together someday. So happy for this now family of four and am looking forward to capturing his first year!

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.

bradley // newborn // 2020

My nephew, Bradley, came into the world not too long ago, and what a cutie he is! Little did he know that soon after being born, things would drastically change in our world. From a baby’s perspective, being home and snuggling with his family is all they really know and is exactly what they need. I think during this time, the world needed some extra snuggle time as well. Even though we decided not to all get together this last weekend (our family is a party of 20!), we look forward to the day when we can all reunite and get to know the newest little member in the family. Brinley is such a good big sister and so proud! Here’s a peek at our sweet session together.

sheffield // extended family // 2020

Cindy and Bob recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on Groundhog Day and wanted to capture this time together with family! I thought it was so cute that they included 3 little groundhog stuffed animals for the kiddos, and they absolutely loved them of course.Β  Being so close to Valentine’s Day as well, they decided to be festive in their pink, red and white colors. Their love for one another is apparent, and it always makes me so happy to see couples who have been together for a long time.

**Cindy and Bob, if you ever want to renew your vows (maybe on a tropical island somewhere!?) you know who to call. πŸ˜‰ CHEERS to 40 years!

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.

baylie // newborn // 2019

Sweet Baylie was welcomed into the world recently and she is oh-so-squishable! She was the perfect little sleeper, all it took was one stroke between the nose and she was out like a light! Such a doll, just like her big brother and sister. Though it’s taking them a little bit of getting used to a new human in the house, I’m sure they’ll warm up in no time. πŸ˜‰ I always enjoy spending time with this sweet family! Here’s a peek at their now family of five!

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!

malachi lee // newborn // 2019

Just last week, I got to meet Malachi Lee! He was such a sweetie pie, and I always love when rainbow babies come to see me, as I get to hear personal stories about heartache, but then also the miracles that can come after. I’m so happy for this growing family and enjoyed capturing this sweet little man’s first photos! Here’s a peek. πŸ™‚

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!

friehe // family // 2019

Though the Fall colors might be fading and bare trees are yet again, the warm(ish) day and love of this family is all that we needed for a sweet session! I always enjoy meeting up with them and having some good laughs. 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!

sheffield // maternity // 2019

As I mentioned on my facebook page, The Lady in Red song has been stuck in my head now since this session! This mama looked amazing in red from head to toe. It was a wonderfully windy and chilly Fall day, & this family just embraced it and celebrated time together as a family of 4 before welcoming their newest little peanut into the world in just a few weeks!! So excited to capture that special time in their life, too.

extended family // fall 2019

I photographed this beautiful family 5 years ago, and it’s fun to see how much the kids have changed, and the parents + grandma haven’t aged at all! They all are super photogenic and you can tell that they’re related. Surrounded by beautiful light on a gorgeous Fall day made for a fun evening. Here’s a peek!

fisher // family // 2019

I love it when colors pop and fabrics flow, and this sweet family nailed it when it comes to wardrobe choice. They are our neighbors just down the street, and even though we’ve only hung out a few times, we really do need to hang out more! You can see so clearly in each photograph their love and energy for one another. It was a fun session and I’m thankful they asked me to capture their beautiful fam! Here’s a peek. πŸ™‚

leo // newborn // 2019

Little boy Leo was almost a month old when I took his newborn photos, so I was happy to take photos in his home, as we did a lot more snuggle shots and captured his alertness to the world around him. I’m almost positive he responds to his name already… πŸ˜‰ Such a cute boy with the sweetest parents. It feels like yesterday that I captured their wedding photos! So happy to have captured this precious time in their lives as a new family of 3! Here’s a peek!

osborn // family // 2019

Even though we did our session in the same location last year, it didn’t feel repetitive as the children have grown so much! They are such a sweet family with so much love for one another. I asked mom and dad to sneak in a little twirl at the end, and just like that, they broke out into the dance that they did at their wedding. It was so cute capturing the kiddos watching in awe. I always think it’s so important to show our children the special bond that we have with our spouses, and I get the honor of freezing those moments for families. πŸ™‚

herrboldt // family // 2019

A few years ago, we crossed paths with another family that was pushing two little babies in a snap-n-go double stroller into our school to drop off their oldest child. When you’re a twin parent, you just have that instant bond with other twin parents. It has been so much fun getting to know them better over the years, having playdates and now our littlest go to school together! They are just the sweetest and all the kiddos are so squishable with big, blue beautiful eyes and are a perfect mix of mom and dad. I absolutely loved the energy throughout our shoot — here’s a peek!

keller // family // 2019

A few nights ago, I got to photograph another little man named, Logan, who even had the same middle initial as my son’s, as well as the same nickname, Lolo. ;0) He was as cute as can be, and you can tell that his parents are just over-the-moon excited to have him in their lives.Β It is always fun meeting new families and learning their stories! Though there are not a lot of Fall colors around, it was an absolutely lovely day to capture this beautiful family outdoors.

ramey // family // 2019

Nebraska can be such a hit and a miss with weather, but I’m so glad we got a good evening for this beautiful family, as they had to deal with some pretty cold and soggy weather last year! And even though miss Claire still did not love being in front of the camera, we managed to sneak in a few smiles here and there. Her big sister on the other hand probably could have kept going all night. πŸ˜‰ Here’s a peek of this fun, loving, energetic crew!

zakai amar // newborn

Sweet baby Zakai came into this world just as cute as can be, and with the most awesome hair! I absolutely loved spending time with him and his sweet parents in their beautiful home, capturing this time together. And I SO appreciate Jody’s response to the session, thanking me for how much work it entailed, but I assure her, though it is my job, it does not feel like work as I love what I do! I feel so blessed to be able to freeze time and provide memories that will last for years to come. A common theme I have been hearing so often lately is that you do not know what tomorrow will bring — which is why it is so important to capture the here and now.

Little Zakai, you will not be this tiny for long. Soak up the moments you so perfectly fit into your parents arms!
