The M Family [Iowa City, IA Family Photographer]

I met up with the M family when I was back in Iowa City in December, and we had a warmer than normal day for this mini session featuring sweet 12 week old Griffin. He was such a trooper and did amazing! Here are some of my favorites from their mini session.

The S Family [Coralville, IA Family and Child Photographer]

Totally using these S family photos to warm me up today on this gray day!! Wishing for summer, and the bright colors Kelli chose for their session is bringing so much cheer to my day!

These guys, gosh, I'm so lucky to have them as clients - not only are they gorgeous, but equally as sweet! I just love every September when I get to hang out with them, and the see the boys growing up. I also especially love the series of Eric and Kelli - #couplegoals am I right? I am so so thankful for this job and the awesome people it's brought into my life.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of the beautiful inside and out S family!

Lawson [Iowa City, IA Lifestyle Newborn Photographer]

Lawson, my newest little nephew had the honor of being the youngest babe I've ever had the opportunity to photograph. I was back in Iowa City for sessions the first part of December, and my sister-in-law had this little guy and the day after they got hone from the hospital I squeezed in their session before heading back to Cleveland.

Anyways, Lawson was SUCH a good little model for his debut, and Waylon is such a proud, sweet big brother. It was really fun getting to capture him with his new sibling, and of course it's always great to spend time with family. Here are some of my favorites from their session!

The C Family [Medina, OH Family and Child Photographer]

I just adore this family to pieces, and it's been so fun getting to see Jack progress from squishy little newborn to big, smiley almost one year old when we met up for their family session this past November. Honestly I'm surprised it took me this long to blog this wintery, cozy session!

 I know people are afraid generally of doing winter outdoor sessions because midwest weather can be super unpredictable, so here are a few key tips:

1. For the love of Pete, layers!! You can cover up and dress warmly + still look adorable (see below). 

2. Get ready to work fast! 

3. Bring handwarmers, bundle up in blankets (bring some cute ones, again, see below), etc. 

4. Please, PLEASE keep your expectations reasonable/think through if this is right for you - if your child screams every time you take him from the car to the house in the winter, or is WAY too young to be exposed to any sort of cold temperatures, there are plenty of indoor options that would be more suitable. Trust yourself and know what your family's limit is!

Even with all of that said, I love winter outdoor sessions, but they can be tricky to schedule because there is obviously a temperature threshold and no one wants to be outside if it's raining/sleeting, so be flexible or have a backup plan! Ok, moving on to these cute pics. ;)

The B Family [Cleveland Heights Family and Child Photographer]

I met up with the B family on a chilly fall morning this past October, and it took Collin a little while to warm up but once he did we got a bunch of great smiles! They brought along their sweet dog Bula, who got to live her best life by jumping into the river, so fun was had all around!
