A Lifestyle Newborn Session || Welcome Miss Everleigh

Lifestyle

I’ve got to be honest here – when it comes to posing newborns, I am at a loss. Ask me to put a baby in a basket or a football helmet or a bowl of apples, and you’ll see me heading for the door. But lifestyle newborn sessions? Oh how I love them.

I love the little glimpse into a family’s life. Newborns bring a certain bit of mess and chaos that is somehow also sweet and precious.   The baby monitors, tiny diapers, receiving blankets and piles of laundry are real life. They show how it is when a 7.5lb human makes her way into a new family. I love to capture this – and the rocking and the shushing and the outfit changes. It’s all so beautiful and fleeting.

In early December, little miss Everleigh made her way into the Connover family. She was welcomed by not only her adoring parents, but also by two amazingly kind big brothers. I tell you what, I’ve never had a two-year-old so enthusiastic about photos as Elliott was on the day of our shoot. He absolutely stole the show!

There’s no doubt that the new little miss is loved and cherished – and that she has many fun and happy days ahead of her as a part of this clan!

Summer Bucket List || Colorado Springs Drive-In
I have a tendency to be self-absorbed. To wake up in the morning and think, "What do I want to do today? What needs to be cleaned? What work needs to be done?" (Can anyone relate?) I get to the end of the day and realize that I've left little room for the good stuff. Ya know, the "having fun with my son" stuff. So I decided that I needed to write the fun stuff down. And I needed to hang it up where I could see it and plan for it and look forward to it. Enter the "summer bucket list." A little list that has made all the difference. Our Summer Bucket Lists help me enter into my kids' childhood by setting aside one day each week t ...

Colorado Springs Home Birth || Welcome Evangeline
I've been anticipating the arrival of this little one for months - and when her mama asked me to be there for her Colorado Springs home birth, I was over the moon! For WEEKS I sprinted to my phone every time it rang and slept with it right next to my pillow. So when Emily called me just after midnight on March 23, I was pretty much half way out the door before she even told me she was in labor. Emily, the world's most fabulous doula, knows a lot about birth and babies. She's helped many, many moms and dads bring their little ones into the world. I was so honored and excited to be a part of the team of people that would be there for her ...

Colorado Springs Lifestyle Newborn Session || The Osburn Family
It is truly amazing to be given the honor of capturing a family as they grow and change. This year, I got to capture the Osburn family while they anticipated their little one's arrival, as they welcomed Evangeline into the world, and then finally during a lifestyle newborn session when sweet Evan was just three weeks old. There's nothing like a household that has just welcomed a new baby. The changing and feeding and crying is all a part of the day-to-day - and so is the snuggling and kissing and shushing. Add in two very excited older siblings and, well, there's just a lot of energy in the house. That sweet newborn phase - it's hard an ...
