Lindsay + James [Iowa City, IA Engagement Photography]

Lindsay and James are planning a late September wedding here in Iowa City, and fingers crossed the day will be warmer than their blustery March engagement session! These two were such great sports, and they were so much fun to photograph. I love a couple that can laugh together, so I'm sure you can guess which one is my favorite!

Theo [Coralville, IA Lifestyle Newborn Photography]

Sweet Theo! This little guy is something really special, as he fulfilled the A family's dream of adopting a child to join their family of three. I am so beyond thrilled for Jess and Frank, and for Liam to finally be a big brother! It was truly an honor to be able to document their new family member. Here are some of my favorites..

Guy [Coralville, IA Lifestyle Newborn Photography]

Karen and Matt were one of my wedding couples back in 2013, and they just had their first baby, a little boy named Guy. He was wide awake for his session, and such a sweet little peanut! I've been having such a blast photographing all of these tiny newborns lately, and it's always so much fun to see my wedding couples again! Here are a handful of my favorites from Guy's session, I hope you enjoy!

Annie [Iowa City, IA Editorial Photography]

Annie was last year's winner of the Tru Salon Model Search, where their clients could enter to win a glamorous styling session with the stylist of their choice and their very own editorial type session with yours truly! I do editorials seasonally for the salon, and seeing Annie's vision come to life was so much fun! I loved her idea to use the bubble gum, and the sexy, playful vibe of her shoot. Everyone should have a chance to feel this beautiful!! Here are just a few of my favorites from the day.

Waverly [Iowa City, IA Lifestyle Newborn Photography]

My sister Abby and her husband Nate just welcomed their first child, a sweet baby girl named Waverly. It's such a cool thing to see your little sister become a mom! She and Nate are over the moon in love with this little sweetie, and who can blame them?! She is snuggly, squishy, and adorable! I may be biased, but I just love how this session turned out - and how cute is her little nursery? I love the floral details, and that bedding is perfection!

The W Family [Coralville, IA Family and Child Photography]

Meghann is a fellow photographer (Meghann Woods Photography) and we met several years ago over coffee, which started a great friendship! We've spent many hours together talking about life, photography, and laughing over wine. I just love this lady!! Also, can we just talk for a minute about her beautiful kids? I mean...seriously! Add in little Whitney's attitude, and I can't even handle the cuteness!
