Welcoming a new little one to the family is always such a precious thing. Getting to be welcomed into a family’s home to document their everyday life in the addition of a little one? Even better! Especially when it's the second time getting to! (See Evelyn's newborn session here.) We love the chance to get to be more on the behind the scenes side of photography, to see everyday life, and get to capture photos within a space that you will forever remember as the place you brought your little ones home. So precious! The new little guy on the block here is named Wyatt, and he absolutely rocked his newborn portrait session! Even though he was a week past what we’d call the newborn stage due to rescheduling since big sissie wasn’t feeling 100%, he stayed awake peacefully almost the entire time and only made one sound -- and it was that adorable little newborn squished sound (one of my favs).
Seriously you guys, we can’t even. We can’t even begin to tell you how unbelievably fortunate we feel to be able to not only hang out with awesome engaged couples on a regular basis, but to ultimately capture this unique time in the couple’s relationship – and to then capture their wedding day? Even better!
What’s better than being a couple’s wedding photographers? Getting to be the couple’s wedding day photographers and then also capturing their maternity portraits! It was beyond fun to capture Rachael and Andy’s wedding at Settlement Hill Farms in Hudson, Wisconsin, and getting to catch up with them again at Afton State Park last week was icing on the cake. I loved walking amongst the empty trees and capturing not only their love for each other, but also their love for their soon-to-be-here baby boy! Rachael is 33 weeks pregnant and beyond glowing!
If it has not been clear, I love my job. Seriously, how cool is it to hang out with amazing people and capture the specialness of their relationship? So beyond #blessed. Matt & Laura here are the best! We first connected back when they were engaged and had the honor of photographing their wedding day at the Grands at Mulligan (you can see that fun here). We then went on to be able to capture their maternity photos last year, and now we’re capturing their family of three with little Nolan here!
Daniel and Anna met on Bumble three years ago. The attraction was mutual, and they decided to meet up with each other for their first date. They met each other at the show “Jesus Christ Superstar” — which they now admit was a rather unique first date in that they did not get to chat face-to-face like so many couples choose, but it was the perfect choice for them. They went out to chat afterwards after sitting shoulder-to-shoulder, enjoying the show and have been inseparable since. They love to spend their time traveling and being outdoors hiking, camping, and riding bikes, so it was only natural that we picked Afton State Park as the spot for their engagement portraits — and the fall colors did not disappoint!
