I was so excited to get to photograph this family. I had wanted to be able to do their little guy’s newborn photos, but I had just had Matthew and was on maternity leave. Everything came together so well this time and I just love how these turned out. Now, just two weeks later, the temperature outside has quickly plummeted to a chilly 50º and I’m looking at these wishing I could stretch out summer just a little bit longer. I love fall, but I really love being able to go outside without even wondering if I need a coat! Oh well, for now I will enjoy editing the rest of my summer sessions and pretend the warmth on my screen is outside, too
I just can’t get over how beautiful little Heidi is. She was just 10 days old. She was wide awake at the end! She’s got such a cute little face.
How about a little throwback to when these two little guys were newborns? Such cuties!
They have grown up so much, but they are still just as cute! I get such a kick out of brothers and their silliness.
Three-year-olds can be super challenging to capture in a still, but at the same time, when you do catch them, they give you the most energetic and happy expressions. My tip for the day: turn up your shutter speed and get ready to move!
I photographed Juliana in one of my favorite spots in the Rockford area: a small park known only to runners, it seems. I brought my handmade swing (thanks Etsy!) which she loved so much that she didn’t want to leave it. She looks pretty cute on it!
Labor Day is the perfect day to post these maternity photos, especially considering this beautiful couple is expecting tomorrow. I hope baby decides to make his debut today! I loved everything about this maternity session in Capron and I cannot wait to meet the little boy who has made these two wonderful people parents.
