Myelle [North Liberty, IA Child Photography]

I've been photographing Myelle since she was 6 months old, and when her family moved back to Oregon last summer I was sad as they had all become friends. So, when Lindsay planned a 2 week visit back to Iowa, we made sure to get a session on the schedule.

I adore this session with Myelle, as it celebrates everything girlie...pretty pink ruffles, lipgloss and pretty shoes. Best of all, it documents that special bond between mom & daughter. I hope you all enjoy the preview!

To Lindsay - I have missed you friend!! It's always so much fun to see you guys, and I had the most wonderful time at this session. Myelle is just adorable, and I hope you love the photos.

Sugar, spice, and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of...

Hallie & Andrew [Solon, IA Celebration Barn Engagement Photography]

Hallie and Andrew will be married at the gorgeous Celebration Barn this September, and the owner, Dick Schwab graciously allowed us to utilize the barn (and the gorgeous restored truck in some of the images) for their engagement session this past Sunday. Sadly, there wasn't as much snow as Hallie and Andrew had hoped, but the chill in the air helped to set the mood for this wintery session.

These two are gorgeous, funny, and have amazing style (I think I might need to go shopping with Hallie sometime!!), which made their session an absolute breeze. They also brought along their pup Remy (hopefully I spelled that correctly!) who enjoyed roaming the property in between his modeling duties.

Hallie & Andrew - I'm so looking forward to your wedding in September, I know it will be amazing and I can't wait to see everything come together. We had so much fun at your session on Sunday, I just know that the wedding day will be just as fantastic. I hope you like the sneak peek!

My favorite...or one of them at least! It's always so hard to choose...

Blair: 1 Year [Williamsburg, IA Child Photography]

Blair turned 1 on Monday, but before her big birthday, I had the opportunity to photograph her at her Williamsburg home on Saturday morning. Despite just waking from a morning nap, Blair was all smiles and ready for her close up! She LOVES music, so we turned on the radio and she had a great time dancing to the beat!! I can't help but laugh as I remember how she was bouncing along to the music, bopping her head on her little white armchair. We also did a cake smash at the end of the session, and the frosting seemed to be a big hit with Blair.

Thank you again to Melanie and Ryan for inviting me back for Blair's 1 year session. It was great to see you all again, and Blair is adorable as always. I hope you enjoy the preview!
