A Journey

A Journey

Anyone who reads our blog knows, while we are good at blogging our weddings, we rarely post anything else. You can blame that on me, since Sarah is in charge of blogging the weddings and I, well, am obviously not a great blogger! I wanted to share a bit about my personal journey as the newborn part of our business. When we started out we photographed everything and everyone, everywhere! We learned a ton those first few years: about cameras, photography, running a business, and ourselves. When we started getting comfortable with kids, families and weddings a few years into our official business, I found out I was expecting (again). Naturally, I wanted newborn pictures of my 3rd baby and, with a little research, a whole new world opened up. I discovered studio style newborn photos, of peacefully sleeping angelic newborns instead of the pictures I had of my first two: red from crying, cross eyed in photos, laying in awkwardly posed angles. This was before pinterest was a thing (imagine all of us who wedding planned back then!) and Facebook wasn’t super popular. Somehow I still found Rachel and she changed my life. Rachel’s business started a few years before our own. Her personal story of her young adulthood resounded strongly with my own and where I was coming from. I found her because she had poured herself into newborn photography and self learned a ton of tricks and tips that she wanted to share with others like herself. I bought her very first original posing guide and she became something like a star to me. Little did I...
Sweet Baby Wyatt

Sweet Baby Wyatt

Wyatt was just nine days old when we did his adorable photo shoot. “A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.” (Eda J. Le Shan) Wyatt has the most pinch-able chubby cheeks. He was so content and happy in any pose that we put him in and his cuddly personality made you want to pick him up and snuggle him. Wyatt’s Dad is a firefighter and they had this amazing antique fire engine. We couldn’t resist having this wonderful father/son moment. I am not sure who made this darling crocheted fireman’s outfit but if you know, tell me so I can give them credit. Maybe someday Wyatt will follow in his Father’s footsteps and become a fireman. “Daddy’s badge, oh how it shines, and maybe someday, it will be...
Sweet Baby Leo

Sweet Baby Leo

Leo means lion in Latin, but this adorable little boy was anything, but a roaring lion. He even smiled in his sleep and made the sweetest little noises. Leo has two military parents and they wanted to show how proud they were of their newest addition to the family as well as their love for their country.   “Babies are like little suns that, in a magical way, bring warmth, happiness, and light into our lives.” Kartini Diapari-Oengider     A future football player perhaps?   Leo’s Aunty made him this impeccable crocheted striped blanket. “We hold their hands for a short while, but their hearts...
Sweet Baby Grayson

Sweet Baby Grayson

Whether it’s baseball, football, basketball, or soccer: this family has a passion for sports. They now have a new teammate: their adorable baby boy, Grayson. “The love of sports is in our genes, it runs in the family. I never grew up wanting to do one particular thing.” Rudy Morrow This soft, squishy bear was from Grayson’s Grandparents. Imagine the warm cuddles that it will continue to give throughout the years. What a precious gift. “A baby is a blessing, A gift from Heaven above, A precious little angel, To cherish and to love.” Greyson’s parents both love baseball. They play together, watch it together, and root for their team together. Greyson fits snug like a glove onto this team. He even has his own onesie jersey to prove it. “From the moment they placed you in our arms, you snuggled right into our...
Sweet Baby Jensen

Sweet Baby Jensen

As the summer began to end and the leaves began to change, the lives of two wonderful people transformed into a family of three. Sweet baby Jensen was welcomed into this world on September, 9th 2014. Just a few weeks later we were given the opportunity to capture this adorable bundle of joy in the glimpse of time that is the newborn stage. “Let him sleep, for when he wakes, he will move mountains.” We aren‘t sure what little Jensen will grow up to become, but we do know that one who wears many different hats will always be prepared. From pumpkins to footballs and even a raccoon, this sweet boy could melt anyone‘s heart. Maybe Jensen will even become a golfer and learn all the tricks of the trade from his Daddy. He may even be able to “help out“ as “Daddy‘s little caddy“. “In golf, as in life, it is the follow through that makes the difference.” Anonymous No matter where life takes this adorable family, we know that they will always be a family of love and...
