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 m ...

A Lifestyle Newborn Session || Welcome Miss Everleigh
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 ...

Miss Geneva [First Month of Life]
I promise I won't give you a month-by-month play of my child's life. But this first month, you guys. Oh my gosh. So sweet and tender and snuggly and full of newness. I just had to share.
And if you make it all the way through this photo overload, there might just be something in it for ya. If you're up for a little contest that ...

Geneva Joy [Just Brand New]
New babies are like campfires - you can watch them for hours and all at once nothing changes and everything changes.
Hands that won’t stay out of her mouth
Tight, tiny, mad fists
A tongue that sticks out when she cries
And a big brother who climbs into the middle of all th ...

The Masuen Family [with a good book]
Just after moving into their new home, the Masuen Family decided on an at-home photo shoot to celebrate this fun milestone in their lives. I loved catching just a glimpse of their day-to-day routine and just watching them be a family! Mr. Myles is fully two and certainly practiced his independence. We even took a little walk down t ...

I introduced you to miss Dorothy Hazel a couple of weeks ago, and today I'm excited to show you her newborn photos.
Now here's the thing about miss Dorothy - Dorothy is baby number 3. 3! And the thing about being baby number 3 is that there's no time to lay around looking serene and sleepy in a little basket. No way. Baby number ...

Dorothy Hazel [Just Brand New]
When Holly and Dave invited me to photograph the birth of their third baby, I was beyond thrilled. I can think of few other times more intense and intimate than the day a family grows by one. I was more than honored and excited to be a part of this occasion.
BUT, when Holly texted me to say that she was in labor, I inconvenientl ...

The Fariss Family
This sweet family has a little brother on the way and what a blessing it was to spend a morning with them capturing them as they are today.
Big sister, Brooklee, has some of the most beautiful hair I've ever seen and was not at all interested in our photo session until the session involved running. She must be two. :) Little Br ...

Back in April, it was my great honor to photograph the birth of Miss Olive Jane. As a photographer, there really is no more important request than that of a mother asking you to capture her baby's first breaths.
Two weeks later, I had the opportunity to capture little Olive again as well as the rest of her family. (Big brother A ...

In my opinion, being asked to be present at the birth of a baby is one of the greatest honors. It means to be allowed to witness one the most painful and vulnerable moments of a woman's life and to be invited to experience - in a most intimate way - the creation of a family.
I've been anticipating the birth of miss Olive Jane fo ...
