Summer Maternity Sessions| Omaha Newborn Photographer

As you may know (or can probably tell from my website/blog/facebook page) I LOVE photographing newborns.  They are my specialty and the main reason I went into business.  But before we ever get to meet all those lovely brand-new bundles of joy, we sometimes get to meet their  mamas and photograph them at the most beautiful time in their life- their pregnancy.  Although I don’t actively advertise for maternity sessions, I still love doing them and REALLY love seeing these stunning mothers in all of their glowing, gorgeous glory.  This summer I was lucky enough to photograph some of my expecting mothers and I wanted to share some of the results….  <3

First up was this lovely mama and her adorable daughter, Maci.

This mama was very relaxed and easy-going.  We laughed and talked and chased little Maci around trying to capture some images of her as well.  Maci was shy and didn’t really want anything to do with the camera.  Even though we got some great shots, I wanted my client to be completely satisfied, so we headed back out to the park a few days later.  This time, Maci and I became fast friends and she showed me some of her great big smiles :)

Next up was this beautiful mama, her husband, and her sweet little girl, Ellie.

I have photographed Ellie before, and let’s just say she wasn’t a fan of being photographed! This time was much different (phew)! I gained her trust right away and we were buddies throughout the entire session <3

That face melts my heart!

And how stunning is her mother?!?

I had so much fun with these sessions and I’m so glad that we were able to capture these times in their lives.  I cannot wait to meet these two little babies and capture them and their newness!

Luke & Gabby | Omaha Family Photographer

These two cuties came to me for a summer mini-photo session.  They were my last family of the night so we got to spend a little extra time having fun! Meet Luke and his little sister, Gabby.  Oh. My. Goodness.  These kids NEVER stopped smiling! They were seriously every photographer’s dream <3

When I asked Luke if he wanted to give his sister a piggy-back ride, he looked at me with a little bit of terror in his face.  He wasn’t sure about the idea and I could tell he was a little nervous.  As soon as Gabby got on his back, though, it was giggles, giggles, and more giggles :)

Just look at them! (By the way, the piggy-back ride was clearly a big hit!)

Sweet Gabby and her precious laugh <3

Luke was so good at posing for me!

These two truly love each other and it shows in their images.

Me: “Give Gabby a kiss, Luke.”

Most kids: “Yuck. No way.”

Luke: “Okay!”

I don’t think these kids could get any cuter!  I had so much fun photographing them and their giant smiles.  We played, laughed, joked.  The kids even wanted to ride with ME when we changed locations <3  This is one of reasons I love my job so, so much.  I get to photograph cute, sweet, fun, amazing children and capture their spirits on film for their parents to cherish forever.  Thanks Luke and Gabby for being the perfect models!

Sweet Louise | Omaha Baby Photogtapher

 

 

Oh sweet Louise <3 This precious baby girl came to the studio for her 3 month portraits.  When she arrived, she was so smiley and happy.  I thought to myself, this is going to be a breeze! And it was, at first…

Baby Photographer in Omaha NE

 

Louise smiled for me during our first couple set ups.

She looked seriously cute in her pink ruffled shirt!

 

But then…. as babies sometimes do, Louise started crying.  She wanted to be held and didn’t want to be our cute little model anymore.  We tried everything but Louise just wasn’t happy.

Baby Photographer in Omaha NE

 

On to plan B… parent poses! If Louise wants to be held, Louise will be held :) And look at this gorgeous family! Louise was happy and we were able to get some great shots of the 3 of them.

If I don’t say this enough, I will say it now: I love, love, love when parents want to be in photographs with their babies.  Your child will grow up some day (bummer, I know) and will want to see not only photographs of themselves that long ago, but photographs of YOU and them TOGETHER.

Baby Photographer in Omaha NE

I mean, look at how sweet this is!

And this!

And this!

Louise, we did not get done nearly what we wanted, but your parents and I are ok with that.  We got some great shots to remember this milestone in your life.  We will try again when you are 6 months old…. and 9 months old…. and 1 year old! (By the way, I also love, love, love when parents sign their babies up for our First Year Photo Session Plan.)

See you soon Louise!

Jack is 6 Months Old!

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is watching the babies that I photograph grow up.  Sweet baby Jack was no exception! I remember his newborn session like it was yesterday~ Jack was so cute but he did not want to sleep very well.  But 6 months old is one of the BEST ages to photograph- even for the most difficult of babies. They are usually all smiles and haven’t yet developed their fear of strangers.

So when Jack’s parents brought him in for his 6 month session, I was confident we could get some good images for them to cherish!

Jack and I had so much fun.  He was so happy and relaxed.  And he obviously smiled A LOT for the camera!

We kept his set ups very simple which will make for timeless photographs.  And let’s face it, there is nothing like a boy in blue jeans <3

His sweet little face melted my heart.

I loved the outfit choices his parents picked to photograph him in.  This adorable coral polo matched perfectly with our white wood backdrop from Lemondrop Stop.  I also loved it with my new chunky mini blanket from Three Little Girlies and our gray vintage crate.

Jack even brought his buddy, Mickey, to join in on our photo session!

We did our last set up with a darker wood back drop for some variety.  Seriously, Jack, you could not be any cuter! Thanks for such a great session and I hope I get to photograph you again soon <3

Braylee is 6 Months Old!

I had the pleasure of photographing sweet Braylee as a newborn.  I will never forget her session~ she was this calm, sleepy, smiley little newborn that made my job so easy.  I remember thinking that her gallery was one of the largest I had delivered to a client.  And bonus: her mom and I go waaaay back :)

As you can imagine, I was elated when her mom brought her in for her 6 month photos.  I had some really cute ideas and was so excited to see how much she’s grown.  Her mom brought a bag full (yes, an entire bag full) of hair bows and headbands!

Our first set up was an adorable cream romper from one of my favorite vendors (Steele Stitches) and we paired it with one of her own headbands. We were able to capture Braylee’s 6 month milestones~ pushing up on her tummy, grabbing her toes, sitting; and even some adorable calm moments of this sweet girl sucking her thumb.

We then moved on to naked baby poses. (Yay for naked babies! Am I right?!?) Braylee was having so much fun playing peek-a-boo under a this blanket :)

Next up was this adorable tutu (that her mom brought… it was much fluffier than the one we have in the studio!) and her own pretty pink headband.  Seriously, how cute is this?!

Braylee was so happy and smiley during her 6 month photo shoot, just as she was at her newborn photo shoot.  We used a chalkboard to document her age and placed her in a bucket (because again, who doesn’t like a baby in a bucket!)

Our last set up was one her mom saw on Pinterest.  We placed a mirror on the floor and let Braylee play and discover the cute baby looking back at her :)

Ok, ok… so I guess we did just one more set up so I could use my new mini blanket (from Three Little Birdies) and Bonnet (from Steele Stitches).

photographers in omaha ne

I hope Braylee never stops being happy, and I really hope her mom never stops bringing her in for photographs!

Neve Turns 4

Sweet Neve is a shy 4-year-old cutie that melted my heart.  Her mom let her pick out her own outfit for her photo shoot, then packed up the whole family for an evening at our local recreation area.

children photographer omaha

We started the session by picking some wildflowers.  This helped Neve warm up to me VERY quickly.

She smiled and played, and smiled some more! She loved sitting in the chair that I brought for her.  And those eyes! I could have photographed her all night! I even love her natural stare :)

We ventured over to the lake to capture some more images, although I’m pretty sure Neve just thought we were playing (this, my friends, is the secret to capturing genuine smiles and facial expressions :)).

By the end of the session, I was so confident that this shy little girl came out of her shell just enough to create some beautiful portraits for her parents.  After I sent her viewing gallery to her mom, she let me know that we captured Neve perfectly! Another reason why I love my job!

Thanks for having so much fun with me, Neve! <3

Meet Baby {K} | Omaha Newborn Photographer

Baby K is one lucky little lady.  She has the absolute sweetest parents! Her mama contacted me for newborn portraits shortly after K was born, saying the hospital photos just weren’t what they expected.  She let me know that not only did they want some more images of their precious baby girl, but they also wanted some that included her and her husband.  My response: Absolutely! I used to cringe when my clients wanted a lot of parent shots.  But honestly, I really enjoy them now.  It keeps the parents interacting during the photo shoot and lets me be creative with different “hand” poses and such.

And hello!?! Look how gorgeous these three are!

Baby K was so, so precious.  She slept so well for us… (on a side note, I’m pretty sure my assistant and I are becoming quite the baby whisperers!) …and it was the fastest newborn photo shoot we have EVER done! We got 9 set ups done in under 2 hours!
