Opal – Eight Months Old

Baby Opal! One of my favorite babies in the world, for many reasons. She belongs to one of my best friends, Katie. She is also the first and only baby (other than my own) that I’ve ever experienced watching (and photographing) her being born. So our connection is more than a little bit special … watching someone take their first breath of life does something to you. 🙂 She is now eight months old, smiling, crawling, snuggling with her mama, watching her big brother Silas … and I loved capturing all of these things at her home on a cold January day with some beautiful sunlight. Silas is four years old, and I love seeing the person that he’s becoming too … He has so much personality! Check it out.

milo & mj – three months old

This is my lovely cousin Kate & her family! She wanted to do a three-month session for her twin boys, Milo & MJ (Michael James), and we spent most of the time just capturing them as they interacted with each other, which is the photo style that I absolutely love. My husband Andy was able to shoot this session with me, and he took some of the amazing shots that I’m happy to share with you in this post.

eliza – three months old

sweet eliza and her family wanted to get some pictures taken this fall for their christmas cards, but after finding out about my baby package, eliza’s mom was all for it! so now, you will get to see this little girl at different stages throughout her first year on my website. i love it!

eliza & her big brother abe were so much fun to photograph, even though it was a warm evening and eliza was very sleepy. that is one thing that three-month-olds do well – sleep! she looks beautiful sleeping though, that is for sure. i am in love with the way the light looks through the trees in these photos.

the miller family.

this family rocks.

travis is one of my husband andy’s friends. i recently had the pleasure of meeting travis’ whole family, and they asked me to take photos for them, and i am so glad they did. these are some of my favorite photos that i’ve ever taken, and the beauty of it is that it was all mostly unscripted, my favorite way to shoot. we had a great night enjoying a walk along the peoria riverfront.
