Ellie Jean

Lincoln, Nebraska

Oh sweet little Ellie Jean you are an absolute joy to be around. Getting to meet your mommy and daddy I honestly felt so connected to them from the get-go at your maternity shoot. We talked about you and all the exciting plans we had for you and then when I finally got to meet you I just couldn’t stop adoring you! Your perfect little nose and cute little lips, you have all of the beautiful features every newborn photographer loves about brand new babies. You must have loved taking pictures because you were pretty proud and smiled often, especially when mommy and daddy held you for their images.

Waylon

Lincoln, Nebraska

When mama comes up with a theme and mentions it to me. I get over the moon excited and start the hunt for the best little props! Mindy came to me and mentioned she’d been looking into the theme Mr. OneDerful, and I think it might be one of the cutest ideas ever!!

Little Waylon was too busy playing to really care about us setting up such an elaborate set-up but when it came time for his cake. He knew what to do! And shout out to ____ cakes for the cutest little cake that even included mustaches and “little man” written on it in creams, golds and blacks to go with the overall theme. It was absolutely stunning. If you’re in the Lincoln, Nebraska area for sure look them up for your own cakes and desserts.

For his Mr. Onederful themed sesh we pulled out all the stops. Cream backdrop, black seamless paper for flooring, glitter gold and stripes paper chains, gold confetti, white and black striped curtains, gold, white and silver tissue paper puffs, fold, silver first birthday bunting banner, gold, white and black baloons, suspenders, black bow tie, and even the cutest little diaper cover covered in gold letters on the booty. Waylon celebrated it all for his birthday in style!!

As you can see, Waylon was busy with his first birthday photos playing and loved his balloons so much! We didn’t get many smiles in front of the camera but he was so busy behind the scenes chasing balloons and giggling that he made up for the lack of smiles with a big personality shining through his images.

I’ve gotten to know Mister Waylon, and his mommy and daddy throughout this past year and it’s been such a joy meeting this family and now considering them friends whom I welcome into my home. From their maternity sesh all the way through their first birthday session, it’s been so much fun learning and connecting with them. They’re such a great family and they truly love their little buddy so much! Huge thank you for making the drive from Lincoln, Nebraska down to us, I hope we made it worth your drive!!

Fall Family Mini Session // Wilber, Nebraska // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

What a whirlwind of a day, but it was intentionally perfect. We invited twelve family’s out to the farm near Wilber, Nebraska for our annual fall family mini sessions and it everything went smooth with less than three tiny humans in tears. We quickly turned those tears into smiles with candy surprises at the end so no worries about casualties. ;) I was so worried we wouldn’t have nice weather since the week before we had snow falling but the day was amazing with sunshine, a slight breeze and 60 degree temps. With just the right amount of rich fall colored leaves but still touches of green in the grass.

The thing I love most about my fall family mini’s is getting to see and catch up with a lot of clients once a year. Every single year it’s crazy how much their kiddos have grown but I love establishing a friendship and building trust with the littles. This year, we had families from Milford, Crete, Hallam, Wilber, Clatonia, and even Beatrice area! It’s incredible to see how much of a distance everyone is willing to come to meet me!

It’s such an honor that parents invite me back into their lives and getting family pictures is something I always encourage everyone to do. Sometimes life gets cut short, and you struggle with the thought of not having a family picture to reminiscence over, let’s take those thoughts away and schedule some family memories of your own!!

Huge thank you again to all the families that visited us. You make me love small town Nebraska life so much more when I see all the amazing people involved in our communities! I cannot wait to watch all these kids become the future leaders and I know I’ve met so many amazing parents that are fantastic role models for them. ;)

High School Senior Session // Chase Wittenhagen // Pius X High School // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

I was over the moon excited when I got a call from the Wittenhagen family letting me know that Chase wanted to book his senior session with me. But once the excitement wore off, I realized it was such a bittersweet feeling for me to see the final kiddo graduating high school. I’ve know the Wittenhagen crew for going on almost five years now and they’ve been there the first few years I was growing and learning as a business. I remember when Chase’s brother Layne was a senior and their first visit out to the farm we chatted about his future plans. Then, a short year later, his sister, Haeley came out. We also chatted about future plans, and even included siblings and grandma in some photos as well that year. Then, a year passed, I kept track of the family through social media, and I missed seeing them. Hearing updates and thrills on new kiddos accomplishments. It’s been such a fun time working with them.

I think what I love most about photographing high school seniors is getting to talk with them. Learn about their future plans and goals. Talk about all of their accomplishments throughout school and what they’re doing to make the most of time during their senior year. Laugh about the funny memories with friends or even jokes they’ve played. I love getting to compare each school system and what rules they have. Sometimes I find myself amazed with certain things they can get away with now (cough, phones in class).

Chase is attending Pius X High School located in Lincoln, Nebraska and is part of the Class of 2019. I love that he isn’t afraid to be spontaneous and go trekking to go find new locations that are unique for his session out on the farm. We tried our best to go to different spots than his siblings so everything would be new. While talking to Chase, I learned he plans on going on after school to join the Navy. And I am so proud of him for that.

It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know Chase and his family and I wish him nothing but the best in life after high school. Thank you so much for choosing me to be your senior photographer! I hope your family enjoys the pictures as much as I do! Thanks again!

Farm. Horses. Sunsets. Trucks. And American Flags.

These are the things that all were included during Maddie's senior session. These are also some of my top fav things about getting to meet and style a senior session specifically tailored to each and every senior I get to meet.

Maddie came down from Lincoln Nebraska to visit me and brought lots of ideas and props as well. Her hobbies include anything country, and outdoors along with her favorite thing, everything equine. What I loved learning the most about her, she barrel races! I find it so neat when I learn what unique hobbies my seniors have, and I love keeping track of them after they graduate. I like seeing them succeed in college and check in often to see what they're up to. To me, it's not just about capturing your senior pictures, it's about making a connection and friendship that I get to continuously check in on and cheer my seniors (and their families) on from the sidelines for years to come!

Maddie brought her horse out to the farm where we had so much fun playing in the tall grass, avoiding bugs and just talking about all things high school. She told me how she loves to go to Plamor (something I once used to do over ten years ago back when I was in high school) and explained how she loves driving her truck up and down O Street with her American Flags on the back of it.

Thank you Maddie and Jenny for coming down to visit, I truly enjoyed getting to know you both and wish you all the best luck after high school!

nebraska photographer kelsey homolka nerud takes family portrait session photos of family from lincoln nebraska photo is of a family of three with maroon and plaid colored outfits at sunset on a farm with tall grass and a one year old baby boy

Eek! I am so happy that Caldwell's came back this fall to the farm so I could catch up with Mister Maddox and see how he's doing. I typically see my milestone babies through their first year and then miss out on them once they get older so it's nice to see them grow and change. Maddox has grown (A LOT) and it's so fun watching him learn words and have favorite things.

Eeek! See, wasn't kidding. This family is adorbs! And I know their entire journey and just how hard it's been for them. That makes their little firefighter that much more special to all of us. I just adore them!
