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.ย

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!

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.

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I always enjoy spending time with this sweet family! Here’s a peek at their now family of five!

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… ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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!

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!

savannah // newborn // omaha, ne

At just 7 days old, Savannah was just the sweetest little snoozer who kept making the cutest smirks in her sleep — I could have snuggled her all day. I absolutely loved incorporating some of this family’s beautiful decor within their home, and even Savannah’s puppy wanted to get in on the action! I am so happy for this adorable family of three and thankful that they had me capture this precious time in their lives! We had plenty of laughs during the session, so it’s a good thing Savannah was such a sound sleeper. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s a peek!

remi //newborn // omaha newborn photography

I am really loving in-home sessions! It’s fun to be able to use the client’s personal surroundings, and I enjoy the challenge of using as much natural light as possible in the areas that the house allows. Little remi was a bit older for her session, so while awake, she had the BEST eye contact! She is absolutely adorable like her sisters, and the whole family is just the sweetest. Here’s a little peek into their beautiful family session.

hailey // newborn // omaha, ne

I love when my commute to work is literally a minute. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I took photos at this sweet family’s home, which happens to be in my neighborhood! They just welcomed their 2nd, a precious girl named Hailey. At just 4 days, she was a perfect little snoozin’ machine, who barely flinched even when big brother made some noise. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It has been a joy getting to know this family a little better, and I’m so happy for them as they start this new adventure as a family of 4! Here’s a peek.

colette // newborn// 2019 omaha family photography

I first photographed Mandy and Mike during their engagement session almost a decade ago now (one of my first engagement sessions ever)! Since then, we became instant friends and it’s been so fun watching their family grow throughout the years. I always remember them saying that they wanted 4 kids, so I am beyond happy for them as they dive into this new adventure as a family of 6! Colette was adorable during her shoot, and I always enjoy doing more lifestyle sessions in people’s homes. Especially when there is an abundance of natural light! Here’s a peek at this beautiful family!

archer // newborn // 2019

Baby snuggles are the best! Sweet Archer mostly wanted to stay awake during his session, but being almost a month old, he is so curious about the world around him! He most definitely was being watched over by his brother from up above, and I love that his birth mark looks like a little angel kiss. It is shoots like these that truly remind me how precious life is, and I feel so blessed to be able to capture the stories of so many family’s lives. 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!

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here’s a peek at her first shoot!

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.

hudson {newborn}

We have certainly been blessed when it comes to some awesome neighbors — the Rosenblad’s being one of them. They reminded me of my husband and I when they first moved in – just a young couple, no kiddos, no pets and in a house that had a few more rooms than they needed at the time. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It has been so fun watching them fill those rooms and become such natural parents. It has also been cute that our kids are starting to play together more, baby Hudson doesn’t know the fun he’s in for with our little ‘hood gatherings! ๐Ÿ˜‰ He is a precious, perfect little boy, and so loved by his family — including his big brother, Jace. They grow so fast, I’m so glad I was able to capture Hudson’s first photos! Here’s a peek.

emily {newborn}

It was such a pleasure taking Emily’s first photos, as she is such a cutie — check out all that adorable hair! Having just met her parents for the first time, it felt like I’d known them a while — they are are so sweet — and I can tell already that they’re naturals. Emily was pretty curious throughout the shoot and usually kept one eye open observing everything. I really like a mix of eyes open shots, so it all worked out. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Here’s a peek at Emily’s newborn photos!

arian {newborn}

Little Arian was pretty much wide awake and bright-eyed during our shoot, until we finally stepped outside in the heat and BAM, off to dreamland, and we could squish her into whatever position. Why didn’t we start out there sooner!? We were hoping if even big sister pretended she was sleeping, she’d get the hint, but nope. ๐Ÿ˜‰ She was such a sweetie with the most beautiful long lashes! Surrounded by so much love, lots of snuggles were had all around. Here’s a peek at Arian’s first session!

cecilia {newborn}

“Oh Cecilia, you’re breaking my heart…” That is the song I keep breaking into whenever I hear or write this sweet baby’s name. Cecilia Jean was born April 14 and is such a cutie pie! I mean, look at all that hair!! Her big sis didn’t want much to do with snuggling her quite yet, but, I’m sure they will be best friends in no time. Cecilia slept almost the whole time, with the exception of taking a peek at what was going on once and awhile. She is an absolute doll. Congrats to Jenny and Paul on becoming a family of four!

brinley rose {newborn}

Brinley Rose, the newest member of our family (my niece) came into the world on April 9 and is absolutely gorgeous, just like her mom and dad. She did amazing during her shoot, letting us change her into various cute outfits, including a few bunnies — which was only fitting since the shoot was on Easter day. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Although it was known that she would have a small cleft lip, they were not sureย on the extent of it, nor if it affected her palette. Her palette was 100% intact, and, the cleft lip is so minor ~ I actually think it’s quite adorable…like a little dimple.ย She exemplifies imperfect perfection andย is so, so loved.

I am hoping that these are photos she can always look back on to see howย her beautiful smile first started. ๐Ÿ™‚

nicholas {newborn}

Feels like just yesterday that we captured Laura’s bump photos, and now, Nicholas James has arrived! Born on February 20, 2017, Mr Nicholas is as cute as can be — soo squishable!! Big brother, Andrew, seems pretty proudย and I see a lot of resemblance in the two. So happy for the Hansen’s and their growing family! Here’s a peek at their session in their beautiful home!
