Introducing Miss Mae | Newborn Photographer Lincoln, Ne

This afternoon, I was so honored to get to meet Miss Mae!  She is a beauty and looks so much like her big sister!  I love that part of my job is getting to meet brand spankin' new babies!  She was only 23 hours old when I met her this afternoon.  Those first hours are some of the best!

I love the raw and realness of hospital shoots.  They are done in dimly lit rooms that are nothing fancy.  No fancy props or posing. Just minimal editing so their all their newness comes shining through the photos. Just a sweet baby adapting to a whole new world filled with lots of people who love them to pieces.  Her Mama and Daddy are obviously smitten with her already!

I, of course, can't want to do her newborn studio session next week but for now enjoy her BabyFresh perfection!

{Princess B} Is Turning One! | Lincoln, Nebraska Children's Photography

This sweet little lady turns one this week!  She wasn't 100% sure about the whole picture thing but she did great.  Headbands are not her thing and she wasn't completely on board with sitting in the gorgeous antique stroller that her Daddy and Grandpa bought for her when she was really little.  She does love cheerios and her big brother though! We captured a few sweet moments of the two of them that their parents can use when they are fighting someday to remind them that they do love one another.

Happy 1st birthday, Princess {B}!

I love capturing profiles.  It think they show so much of the changes that happen as little one's grow up.  So sweet!



Let Them Eat Cake!! | Children's Photographer Lincoln, Nebraska

This sweet little lady is officially ONE!  It's so bittersweet because that means I won't get to see her every few months but also so fun to see her as a big girl now.  She was so smiley for me this time and that was even before we brought out the cake. Of course, once the cake was set in front of her she wasted no time smashing it, eating and loving it!  I'm pretty sure she smashed her cake faster than any other baby I've ever seen.  It was awesome!!

TI don't know if it was the sugar high from the cake or just that she was having so much fun but he longer we went the spunkier.  By the time we put her in the tub she was being such a little ham and had so much fun playing in the water.  She is seriously so sweet with just a dash of adorable spunkiness like her big sisters.

Happy 1st birthday Miss {J}!!  

Look who's so smart she knows she is 1!!

Third Times The Charm | Family Photographer Lincoln, Nebraska

I meet this sweet little family a few years ago when I photographed them for the first time.  Over the years I have come to love them even more.  They are so sweet and fun and just the cutest.  

This year's session started out with a few hiccups.  First, little Miss broke her ankle when she jumped of a ledge while they went to East Campus to check out the location before our session.  Well, and to get ice cream because is it even possible to go to East Campus without getting ice cream?!

Then the day of their reschedule shoot we had to postpone literally the last minute because a storm blew in.  They were on their way to East Campus so they went ahead and got ice cream.

Then finally we got to actually have their session and it went fantastic!  Thank goodness!  I was beginning to think we would never get to that part.  We hit up some of my fav spots around campus and we even revisited the scene of the leg breaking accident.  

When we were wrapping up the session Miss {A} say, "See you next year!!"  I love that I get to watch your littles grow and that I have become a yearly thing {H} family!  It's like our own little family reunion!!
