Western, Nebraska

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!!

Corn Field Mini Sessions // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

One of my absolute favorite mini sessions that I host every year are these corn field mini sessions here on the farm. I love seeing all these adoreable little kiddos that show up in overalls with their toy tractors and watch them transform into little farmers.

Summer Family Mini Sessions // Southeast Nebraska Photographer

We did it!! We hosted our first set of summer mini session photos at the farm and although we all might have been a little sweaty I think we got some amazing shots! And the best part? We ended up raising enough to sponsor a child!!!

I have every intention to keep you guys up to date once we start sponsoring a child and will of course show you whatever I can (I know we write letters back and forth as well as get pictures from there), I am so thrilled to get to do this for someone else. To see all these tiny babies that are in need, helps to remind me that my life is intended to be about serving others and that the Lord has blessed me way more than others in tough situations. 

I would love to continue to donate to World Vision and early next spring I will host mini's again. Eventually we will only host two mini sessions a year so check out the events and specials tab for more info in the future!

Summer // Jaxson // Nebraska Photographer

Jaxon might be the defined version of a boy who loves to play with trucks, and race cars and mud. He has always loved to get dirty and is the biggest dare devil I know! We went out to the farm looking for fields and mud and nothing about that night was disappointing to us!

We started out playing in the field with tractors while Uncle Trav was checking how the beans were growing. It was quite entertaining to throw mud at us too!

Then we got to business and found the real fun. THE MUD! Jaxson clearly didn't need much prompting on what to do, he just jumped in and started playing!
