Emilia | 6 months

Pin It

Oooh, Emilia!!!  Beautiful, sweet Emilia!!!  What a joy it was to photograph you on such a lovely autumn afternoon!  Emilia's mom, Elizabeth, and I both went to IU and lived on the same floor in the dorms for two years.  We were right across the hall from each other.  She married her lifelong sweetheart, Joe.  They've been inseparable since 1992 and were married in November 2003, and together they have 3 of the most adorable, joyful, patient, well-behaved children I have ever met!  It seems like yesterday we were roaming that gorgeous private property on a fall day when Clark and Sydney were 4 and 2!  And now you have another little beauty, Miss Emilia!

Oh my goodness!  When a session starts out like this, I just know I'm in for an amazing time! 
A favorite!

When she wasn't busy smiling and working the camera, something would catch her attention, and she would become so serious.  Seriously adorable.

Only 6 months and she's got her model face down to a perfect science. ;)

Luckily, we had a warm and sunny afternoon, which meant going barefoot was preferred!  
Love those adorable baby toes and feet!!!

Love this!

Before wrapping up, we just had to get a few images with Emilia's older brother and sister!  Lovelovelove!

These 3!!!  How they melted my heart with their love and affection for each other!  Sydney and Clark absolutely adore their baby sister, and it's clear that Emilia feels the same way about them!

We had lovely fall light, and our little model was still as happy as could be, 
so we captured a few more frames!  

I adore the many expressive faces of Emilia!  Those eyes!  Those cheeks!  That little pout!  And those baby toes!  Oh my goodness!!!  I could barely handle all the cuteness!

I'll end with another favorite.  Emilia, you are such a delight to be around!  It was so wonderfully fun to photograph you and your happy spirit!  Thank you so much for sharing your afternoon with me! Hugs!!!

Joe, Elizabeth, Clark, and Sydney, I've told you guys before that I adore your sweet family!  What a blessing it is to be called your friend, and quite an honor to capture the true warmth and happiness of your  family as it has grown over the years!  Thank you again for the thoughtful gift for Baby Stewart!  You are so sweet!  I can't wait to get our kiddos together to play!!!

Eric + Jenny + Nicolette + Clara Noelle

Pin It

I'm so excited to share some favorites from one of my most favorite family's recent newborn session!  Eric and Jenny welcomed their second precious baby girl into their lives, and they couldn't be more smitten with Miss Clara Noelle!  She is beautiful and is so lucky to have her big sister, Nicolette, to share life with as they grow!  Nicolette is almost 2 years old (see some of their family portraits from last fall at the end of this post!), and she is beyond cute!  Even their beloved pup, Viv, joined us for photos!  I've had the extreme honor of capturing Eric and Jenny's wedding day, more portraits after the wedding, their first maternity announcement, and their newborn portraits.  I love having this special relationship with my clients, and seeing how they've grown into such a warm, caring, and joyful family has been incredibly amazing!   Before I get too sappy, let's get to some of my many, many favorites!

I knew Clara's nursery would be so perfect!

Nicolette and her new little sister, Clara!  Two beauties!

I just cannot resist those little feet and toes!

A sweet kiss from her big sis!

Jenny and Eric, you two are amazing.  Really amazing.  

Miss Clara Noelle!!!  You are truly a precious little princess!

A favorite!!!

While Nicolette went down for her nap, Clara finally decided to take a snooze and we got so many tender and sweet and perfect little moments, full of snuggles and wonder and sheer awe.  

Love this!

Seriously adorable!


Snug as a bug, the cutest little bug ever!

Jenny, you are radiant!  So so so pretty!

Viv is such a proud pup!  Love you, Viv!!!

I simply adore you guys!

Eric, Jenny, Nicolette, and Miss Clara Noelle!  I'm so elated for your sweet family!  What a gorgeous group you are, and so full of love and happiness!  Thank you so much for asking me to document this wonderfully special time in your lives yet again!  Congratulations to you!!! 

And as promised, a few favorites from their portrait session last fall just before Nicolette's 1st birthday!

Although it was bright and sunny, it was a chilly day to be outdoors!  We took some quick portraits outside before heading indoors to warm up!
Love your smile, Nicolette!!!

Oh how I love this image!  Favorite, favorite, favorite!!!



We came into my studio for some fun!

…and for cake!!!

Those eyes!  That dimple!  Such a gorgeous birthday girl!!!

Cheers to a sweet and happy 2nd birthday, Nicolette!!!  Hugs!!!
