The B Family [Coralville, Iowa Lifestyle Family and Child Photographer]

I was so lucky to see this family during both of my recent trips home, as they participated in my Let Them Be Little minis and then we did this little shoot to give them some holiday card images! With three little ones, sometimes the session can get a little wild, so we leaned toward a lifestyle feel for these and let the kids run around, throw rocks in the water (they really loved this), and sneak up on mom & dad. With that being said, we still got some great posed photos to show off just how adorable they all are! I like to do a good mix of both at a session, to give you lots of options when choosing your photos or give interest to an album if you go that route!

Which do you prefer? A more natural/lifestyle approach or posed photos? Which do you tend to hang on your walls or put into an album? Which ones do you think you'll look back and love in 10, 20, or 30 years?

The L Family [Wilson's Orchard, Iowa City, IA Family and Child Photographer]

This is only the second time I've done photos at Wilson's Orchard, and I just adore it!! I did two sessions while I was in Iowa City this weekend, and it was such a great spot with tons of little areas to take photos.

Ciarra and John won Tru Salon's giveaway of a family session with me this past spring, and it had been awhile since I had them in front of my camera so I was super excited! Porter and Sloane are some of the cutest kiddos ever, am I right?! We had a great time wandering around the orchard grounds and got some really adorable shots - how cute is the one of Sloane picking the petals off of that flower? Ahh! All the heart eyes, for real.

The B Family [Iowa City, IA Family and Child Photographer]

I just got back from Iowa and had so many amazing sessions, starting with the B family on a beautiful fall night. How great is this color scheme?? Alex and TJ have a gorgeous family, and the boys did so great (this was the first time I've photographed them as a family!). We had fun wandering around the beach at Palisades Park and I couldn't have asked for a better session!

Do you prefer the more candid, interactive images or something more posed? My lifestyle loving heart is always on board for some snuggles and belly laughs!

William + Adeline [Broadview Heights, Ohio Child Photographer]

These fraternal twins, William and Adeline were so much fun at their spring mini session, and I get to see these cuties again next month for a family session (cue the confetti/happy dancing)! I may have to perfect my dinosaur sounds (ok, really they were dinosaur burps...which was a cross between a roar and a fake burp?!) which William really loved last time, probably because they are so ridiculous and honestly I would probably be super embarrassed if I saw a video of me doing this. Ha! Anything for a smile, right?

Anyways, I just love the colors and how much energy these two had - it was really such a great session! Here are some of my favorite images.
