Declan's First Year

By the end of his first year of photos, even Declan's parents were saying he almost looked like a different baby! That little bit of strawberry blond hair turned into a LOT of red hair.

We love capturing a baby's milestones in their first year, and Declan is no exception! He was walking by 8 months so in his 9 month photos, he was already standing on tubs and running away from the camera lol!

And so many expressions. Declan and his family ended up with a beautiful album from his baby milestone sessions. Almost every 3 month session included a series of his changing expressions. So many moments we captured in Declan's first year that now will be easier for his parents to remember with these pictures.

Caelan's newborn photography session

We loved capturing Caelan's story from maternity, birth to his newborn session below! 

He is so adorable in everything we put him in. It was such a pleasure photographing Caelan and his mom and dad! We love all the sweet portraits we captured. Showing this little feet, lips, hands, and face - already different as he grows up. Newborns are only newborns for the first few weeks of their lives. It goes so fast!


Princess 1st birthday cake smash & splash!

Presley's princess themed cake smash was well planned out but as a lot of well made plans, they can often go awry. Even though she normally loves cake and even ate some later that day, Presley was just not having it during her cake smash portrait session. She was good as long as we didn't try to get her to eat the cake lol!

So we worked with what Presley wanted to do and we ended up with some adorable photos and some funny ones that mom and dad loved having in their album to laugh about with her as she grows up. Lucky for us, Presley loved her bubble bath! 

And as we always encourage, we captured a beautiful family portrait before all the festivities. We believe you should exist in photos. Your kids want to see you in them! 

Dr. Seuss 1st Birthday Cake Smash!

When Levi's mom first contacted us about doing a Dr. Seuss cake smash, we were so excited! And then she sent us a photo of the outfit she got for him to wear and we knew this was going to be the cutest Dr. Seuss cake smash ever! 

As Kristi does when she has an idea, she took it and ran with it. Cute matching balloons and decorations and the sweetest Dr. Seuss cake from our favorite baker, Sugarplum Cake Shoppe. Mom also provided the banner to match his outfit. And there you have it: all the makings of a cute cake smash for baby's 1st birthday! 

Some of the rubber ducks in Levi's bubble bath were his dad's rubber ducks from when he was little! How special!

And baby makes 3!

About 4 years ago, Kristi had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Erin and Jeff (back when she still did weddings!). It is always so special seeing two in a family become three. Even though they live in another state, when they came back over the summer, Erin and Jeff knew they had to have Kristi photograph their new family. We had some fun recreating some of their wedding portraits in the same place of the same garden that is so special to their family. They even wore their wedding shoes!

In Erin's words, "Our family LOVES Kristi and the amazing photos she's taken for us. Not only does she take simply beautiful photos, she makes it fun and is so easy to work with. We were so thrilled when we were able to book Kristi, who had photographed our wedding 4 years earlier, for a last minute photo shoot w/our 9-month old daughter this summer. She was so accommodating with our schedule (we live out of state) and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. We now have our first set of official family photos, and they are reminiscent of the photos she took for our wedding! Our little girl just adored her too :)

The albums she's created for our family are some of the most treasured items in our house. If you're looking for keepsakes that will last a lifetime, I highly recommend working with Kristi - she's the best!"
