I absolutely LOVE getting to see babies and toddlers once in awhile during the cold months when we’re all cooped up inside impatiently awaiting the spring weather. Every January I host milestone mini sessions that are simplistic and focused on babies. The set-up is super basic and we invite clients to “shop” our wardrobe or baby outfits or bring their own. We even wrote up a post about The Best Of Amazon for Milestone Outfits to give clients inspiration!

One of my favorite little nuggets that stopped in was Mister Colt. I personally couldn’t wait to see him because my cousin’s (hey there Dustin & Amelia!) couldn’t make it to Christmas because Colt wasn’t feeling the best so it had been quite awhile since I’d seen him. Oh. My. Goodness. He has gotten so big and his laid back personality truly shined through! He was just all smiles and ready to talk to us from the minute he walked in the door.

At milestone sessions I try to go as simple as possible. The less time we spend setting up and taking down backdrops, the more time we get to spend playing with babies!! With these mini’s it was a basic, cream backdrop of seamless paper and we tossed in a few tiny props like the fur rug and box to help him sit up.

Colt did great and although he wasn’t quite sitting unassisted I’m willing to bet now he is! that’s why we’ve got plenty of buckets and basket’s to sit babies in. They always love getting to sit up and look around at us while we’re shooting.

Thank you Colt (and mommy and daddy) for visiting me. I cannot wait to watch you grow and see your personality change. You are such a handsome little dude and I have no doubt you’ll grow into loving the outdoors just like your daddy!!

With our Milestone Mini Session’s coming up we wanted to kick out a quick review of some fun Amazon links for you guys to check out and order if you’re needing something cute for your littles for pictures. These links are perfect for us small town Nebraska people who don’t have access to bigger stores with stylish outfits that don’t include characters on them. I have a very specific style that I personally love to I tried to tailor to those types of outfits but of course you can cruise around and find similar things you might like through the links. This is a great stress free way to find some fun outfits and spend less since we tried to include some basics that you might have something similar to layer into these outfits.

We wanted to go with muted tones so that babies really stand out and these colors give them creamy skin tones which is what we all love so much. These colors will look beautiful with the cream color backdrop and fluffy cream colored rugs that we have. We also tried to pick some extremely reasonably priced options, nothing over $15! Bonus, these would double for family pictures too ;)

Boys are tougher when it comes to different styles. There are a lot of the outfits I found that had graphics on the shirts and I’m totally not into that so I decided not to share any. Also, I felt that the button up collared shirts with suspenders felt too “fancy” for photos and prefer the more relaxed feel so I didn’t share any of those either. I realize stripes were a pretty consistent pattern with what I posted but they’re just cute and fun! Also, hoodies, there are so many adorable hoodie options on Amazon!!

I hope this round up helps and you find something useful through those links, if you don’t purchase them for a photo session, you still might just purchase them to dress your babies super cute in!

Little mister Waylon came down from Lincoln, Nebraska for his Newborn Photography Session and to visit and showed me how perfect he can be by sleeping the entire time!

Grayden celebrated his second birthday and invited me to come party with him! He is the cutest little farm boy I've ever met who was so excited to see all the cows (until we walked up to them). Little mister G it's been so fun watching you grow up so far, getting to play in the mud with your combines and trucks. Watching you throw dirt at me and your mommy while the sweetest little giggles were pouring from your mouth. You are one precious little guy and you will grow up to be one hard working farmer just like your daddy! I can't wait to share more!

A “Rainbow Baby” is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn’t mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with the aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope.

Thank you Caldwell's for coming back. It's humbling that after almost four years together, you still are so loyal and trusting in me to capture your families most precious memories! Little baby Mandy was extra precious, and I am so excited to watch her grow just like her big brother Maddox!

Nothing means more to me than when clients trust me and love their images enough to come visit me again. I was honored when Casey and Jennifer announced to me that they were expecting their second baby. But even more so, completely in awe of how perfect and pretty she was just like her sister! Newborn sessions have really been something I've learned so much from. You truly have to be patient and go off of baby's mood. Lainey did fantastic, she didn't fall into a deep sleep but she was calm enough to let us take some cute pictures of her. I cannot wait to share the rest!

A totally sleepy newborn is my favorite to get to snuggle! Little Dalila was almost six weeks old but she slept better than some of my fresh little ten day old newborns. Thanks for visiting princess!

Little miss Jovie seriously might be the happiest baby I've ever met! Every time she comes to her sessions she is just happy to be there and having some one on one time away from her older twin brother and sister. She claps, giggles and entertains us as we make silly faces and noises at her. Thanks for visiting Jovie Tae!

Newborn Session // Elsie Jo // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

Babies are little tiny miracles gifted to us. And for that, I am so grateful that people trust me with the brand new miracles.

NewbornSessionNebraskaPhotographer1.jpg

Little Elsie Jo arrived during one of my busiest weeks of the year, and although it was a crazy time for me, I'm so glad we squeezed her in and that she was a breeze. Some babies come in and aren't sleepy or don't like being posed but little Elsie came in and slept the entire time. She took a quick snack break and was ready to go back to sleep and pose perfectly.
