guzinski // family

It was a chilly and windy evening for this shoot, but we were at a new location, so I wanted to try and capture what I could utilizing the beautiful surroundings before everyone got too cold! I think our beautiful 70’s are gone for good… 🙁 Happy November! Here’s a peek at the lovely Guzinski family who are dressed in outfits that complement each other perfectly!

craig // family

Sweet family to work with + a gorgeous morning = a wonderful fall shoot. 🙂 Sometimes when I photograph this age group of kids, I think about my “babies” being that big someday, and how quickly time really does go! I’m so glad I’m in the business of freezing time so that families can look back at those times of their lives for years to come. Here’s a peek at their session!

osborn // family

I love when I meet families for the first time, and it feels like I’ve known them forever. The Osborn’s are one of those families. I enjoyed our time together, soaking up the sun and (warmish) fall day before it got too dark and chilly. Each kiddos has so much personality, and little Olivia is turning one, so we made sure to capture a few of this special time in her life. Here’s a peek!

extended {fall} family

I had such a fun shoot with this energetic bunch! Their outfits blended together beautifully with nature, and we could not have asked for better weather! There is lots of love in this family, and I think you can see that through their photos. 🙂 Here’s a peek!

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. 😉 I enjoyed photographing both families along with one of their grandma’s on a gorgeous fall evening. Here’s a peek!

jeseritz {family}

This outdoor shoot brought me back to the fall engagement session with Anna and Bart, which seems like such a long time ago! So much has happened in their lives since then, including bringing two cuties into the world. It was fun watching them interact with one another, and at one point, dance to the Baby Shark song. We had a gorgeous evening shoot before the snowstorm hit the next day! Here’s a peek.

friehe // family

Love seeing this family ~they are all so photogenic! I knew Owen when he was just a baby (our kiddos had several playdates together), and he has grown up to be such a handsome young boy — a perfect blend of both of his parents. We bundled up into the cold morning hours at OPPD park and captured some beautiful shots the day before a snowstorm hit! Here’s a peek!

lydia jane {newborn}

Maybe it’s just because my “babies” are getting so big now, but when little Lydia came in for her first photos at just 6 days, she looked so incredibly tiny! Such a petite little sweetie who, for the most part, loved to snooze throughout her shoot. Joined by her big sister and parents, she seemed quite content and made sure to give me the approval at the end with the cutest little smirk. Here’s a peek!

barber {family}

Another year came and went, and Edie is now four! This year, she was joined by her grandma and uncle to capture some fun moments in the park. So much love for this energetic little girl. She was running around so much, she even wanted to take her sweater off at one point, even though I thought it was COLD! Just thankful the rain held out. 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! 😉  I love their color combo and how they all looked cozy in this yucky fall weather we’ve been having. Here’s a peek!

ramey {family} photos // elkhorn, ne

Mother nature just can’t make up her mind whether she wants it to be fall or summer. This up and down weather has all of us photographers on our toes for sure. Wanting the best weather for our clients is not always the case, so sometimes we just push through, and I’m so glad we did for this shoot as I think we still captured some great shots despite the cold and rain. Those sweet girls mostly wanted to stay bundled up next to their parents, so lots of hugs were had! 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! 😉 Puddle jumping definitely brings out pure JOY! Here’s a peek at some cute Kamin photos.

rachel {newborn} // omaha newborn photographer

A few years ago, I captured this family’s first little girl. It’s always crazy to see them after they’re all grown up, no longer at all a baby, but rather, miss Elizabeth is now a big sis to Rachel! Though sweet little Rachel did not want to sleep for pretty much our entire session, she was as calm as can be and was just taking in the world around her. It was fun catching up and snuggling their newest little bundle! Here’s a peek. 🙂

proper {family} // omaha family photographer

Last week, I captured this sweet family and had so much fun! The boys really seem to like being in front of the camera, which makes it that much easier for me! 😉 And mom and dad seem like they’re just as much in love as they were back when I first captured them at their wedding 9 years ago! I love how their outfit colors just became one with nature — they blended in just beautifully! Here’s a peek!

johnluke newborn

Still can’t believe two of my friends delivered their second baby just one week apart! I just captured sweet Caroline, and then a day after I got to meet this handsome little guy — JohnLuke. He was so stinkin’ cute and slept (hard) the entire time! MJ is a wonderful big brother who, although didn’t love giving snuggles, was so cute when he did. And of course we had to do a military shot just in time for Memorial day to honor his mama who serves. Here’s a peek at some adorableness.

caroline // newborn

Feels like just yesterday that I met our friend’s first little girl, and now Elisa has become a (wonderful) big sister to sweet Caroline! She is so precious and squishable, I could have snuggled all day. 😉 Here’s a peek at her first shoot!

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!

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? 😉 Either way, they are ADORBS. Here’s a peek at their fun little session ending with a cake smash!

rowley {maternity}

Jenn and Pat are some of the first friends I hung out with since moving to Omaha, and it has been so fun watching them grow as a family over the years! Elisa is going to be a big sister — to… either a boy or a girl! They have not found out the gender yet, and I give them so much credit for hanging on! I am way too impatient to not find out. 😉 Jenn looks adorable as ever and is ALL baby. For now, I predict it is a boy. Congrats to them as they anticipate become a family of 4!

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!

henry // newborn

Wide awake and oh-so-concerned looking is how little Mr Henry spent his time during our shoot. He is so cute and a wonderful addition to this now family of four. His big brother was such a good listener and so patient with him. I can tell they are going to have a lot of fun growing up together! Here’s a peek at some of his adorableness.

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!
