Welcoming Mr. Peter: a fresh 48 in Parker, Colorado

Fresh 48: newborn baby boy in hospital bassinet

There is something magical about fresh 48 sessions. This is such a tiny sliver of time in the long view of things, but one I think all parents hold close. It is as if the whole world has decided to whisper for a time so that everything is focused on this trio of baby and parents. Mr. Peter: so perfect in his little boy sturdiness, with just the right amount of chunk and tiny baby to him. The gorgeous light in their room only added to how perfect it all felt, and Amy and Sean’s obvious joy at meeting their third baby, and first little boy permeated the bit of time I spent there. Welcome to the outside world, Sweet Peter! You are well and truly loved.

Welcoming Miss Haddie

This little girl was welcomed into a family so full of love and excitement. There is always something about getting to snuggle a newborn that reminds me what an amazing job I have. These first few days fly so quickly, and I’m grateful I get to have a small part in capturing those moments for families to look back on when these little days have passed.

Dear Mr. Bennett, It was so apparent from the moment I stepped into your home how loved you are. From the way yours sisters admired your tiny fingers and toes, to the beautiful space your parents prepared for you, to the way your daddy wrapped you up so you were warm and cozy, to every last snuggle your mama lavished on you: you are so loved. Here is to newborn yawns, beautiful light, big sisters, and family story time. Welcome to the world!


The Chism Family [Lakewood Family Photographer]


As you all know, I’m a bit behind on my blogging, so I decided to dig into one of my favorite shoots from last autumn. These two were SO sweet with each other. They worked hard to make each other smile, and were more than willing to snuggle for a photo. They were also getting ready for Halloween only a few days after our shoot, set to be the cutest Beauty and the Beast ever! The beauty of family sessions is getting just a tiny glimpse into their fun, their own silly traditions and sweet moments, and their story. Thank you for sharing with me, Chism family, it was so lovely!


Welcoming Miss Grace | Wichita Newborn Photographer


If you want to talk miracles, you are looking one in the face in that darling newborn right there. This little girl has come a long, long way. She was born at 23 weeks, was only 1lb 6oz and 12 inches long, and after 121 days in the NICU, Grace was right where she belonged: home for Christmas. Within seconds of being there, it was obvious she was born into the perfect family for her. There was patient moving of oxygen and other important supplies, and through it all, she snuggled right in, taking in the world around her. This was also not Daniel and Sarah’s first time through the NICU life, their twins were also preemies, and I am amazed at how gracefully they have handled the pressure they were put under. Oh, sweet, amazing, Grace: welcome to the world, welcome home, welcome to a family that loves you more than you shall ever know.
