Jack [Mt. Vernon, IA Newborn Photography]

Back in 2011, I photographed Nikki & Devon's engagement and wedding photos, so when they told me they were expecting a little one I was super excited for them! These two are such caring, sweet people that I knew they would make amazing parents.

Jack was born on April 6th, so he was just 14 days old for his session. He was a great model, and I can't get enough of those long eyelashes and cute little face.

Nikki & Devon - Thank you so much for trusting me to document your new addition. Jack is absolutely precious and I'm so thrilled for you both. I can't wait to see how your family grows, thank you again for allowing me to be a part of your story.

I loved all of the little touches Nikki and Devon had around Jack's nursery (the bear played peekaboo!), especially the family heirlooms like the photo and the ceramic baby shoe.

Jackie + David [Iowa City, IA Engagement Photography]

Jackie and David met us for their engagement session last Saturday evening, and we didn't let a few wayward sprinkles ruin our fun. These two are absolutely adorable together - they love to laugh and they definitely love each other. I can't tell you how much fun it was to photograph them, and now I'm even more excited for their Palisades Park wedding this fall.

These two met in Costa Rica when they were studying abroad, David's height (6'5"!) and helpful, thoughtful, and incredibly kind nature won Jackie over immediately. They started out as friends, but after several months went by they went out on a first date and spent hours just talking. Jackie shared with me in some of our initial conversations that she feels like the luckiest girl in the world since she met David and I'm pretty sure that David feels super lucky to have Jackie in his life as well. These two are absolutely perfect for each other and it's an honor to be able to document their story.

I think this is my favorite, why is it always so hard to choose?!

Jackie, you are stunning. I can't get over how much you resemble Jessica Alba. Just gorgeous!
