I get the incredible opportunity to photograph these beautiful people about twice a year! I love how they simply want their everyday-life captured. This session was all about reading books, playing in the wild flower field & sparklers (it was the eve of the 4th of July, after all!) It doesn’t hurt that they all love each other immensely, and it shows in every single photo we take:)

Six months ago, I documented what is likely the most incredible day of Chris + Kim’s lives… the day their little Livy Lou was born. And then just a couple of weeks ago, I was welcomed into their home to document ‘life’ which included Olivia’s first bites of solid food. I LOVE capturing incredible moments like these – whether its every day life or the beginning of life, they are all beautiful moments and ones that our children will cherish having as they grow and have children of their own. To my friends, Kim + Chris, you are beautiful parents and you have such a precious little girl! I can’t wait to watch her grow:)

“She believed she could, so she did.” This was the bracelet that Elin wore during the birth of their sweet girl. The birth of Ada was an incredible story to document at Methodist Hospital! I loved watching how loving and supportive Collin was to Elin, how Elin was able to go through labor and delivery med-free (I’ve been there and it is no easy feat!) and especially the moment that Collin helped deliver sweet Ada into her mommy’s arms. Ada has the most proud big sister, Maija, who came just shortly after she was born and couldn’t stop beaming <3
