Annabel : 6 Months Portrait Session

My sweet niece was in the studio on Palm Sunday after our family dinner to celebrate the Easter holiday. I was so happy to finally have her in my studio since Eric and Melissa live 6 hours away in Sheyboygan, WI and with us just finishing up our new house and them with a baby and full-time jobs that require some weekends, evenings and holidays… I don’t get to see them near as much as I’d like… let alone get to photograph them when they are home since they’re usually spreading their limited time between the grandparents.
I must admit, my little niece is a stunner. She has these big blue eyes that look right into your heart! And if she’s not smiling, she’s just got this laid-back relaxed expression… I know she must have some fussy times, but I haven’t witnessed anything yet to suggest she’ll be a little drama queen.
Fingers crossed that she loves her Auntie Becca as much as I love her!
So back to the session… Melissa had a cute outfit on her when they arrived. The black and white zebra print dress and bright coral cardigan seemed to call for a simple background so we just used the white wall. I had to work a bit in the beginning for those smiles. She seemed confused that her daddy was acting like such a maroon. ūüėČ LOL! KIDDING!!! Love you bro!
The next outfit was my favorite! A vivid purple lacy top. We didn’t have a matching bottom so we just used a white diaper cover I had on hand and sat her so we couldn’t really see it anyway.
I love the way the purple and teal coordinate with the gray background and it all showcases her gorgeous porcelain skin and makes her eyes pop!
They also had a fun, more casual pink and lime green number that we paired with a super soft rug I have. She was giving me lots of smiles still, but reaching her limit. I could see her eyes getting a little sleepy.
So we quick switched her into a pettiromper I had wanted to photograph her in with a cute little baby sized bed and some pearls to top it all off. So precious!
Enjoy!

Brooklyn : One Year Old : Child Portrait Session

If you’re a follower of my blog, I’m sure you’ll recognize this sweet face! ¬†It’s little baby Brooklyn, looking all grown up at her first birthday portrait session!

I adore my customers who come for newborn portraits and sign up for “Baby’s First Year” because I get to develop such a close relationship with them and hear all about the trials and triumphs of their child’s first twelve months. ¬†(And often times the years following.)

This session we captured some in a little black corduroy dress with Brooklyn by her first pumpkin since her birthday is close to Halloween.

Then we changed her into a cute Iowa State cheerleader outfit and did some with daddy and played in the leaves. ¬†Don’t you just love how the red and yellow work with the fall colors?

Next, we went inside and did a couple more outfits and ended with the insanely fun birthday cake images. ¬†A friend of theirs made this huge cupcake for Brooklyn’s portrait session and I love how the colors go so well with the little onesie her mom picked out and then I added the cute little leg warmers with the polka dots to tie it all together. ¬†

Enjoy!
