How many of you have seen your baby photos? If you’re anything like me… you’ve seen a few and that’s about it! I wish I better knew the story of my birth and could see what my parents dressed me & if I slept a lot, or cried, or just watched the world.

Thankfully, the digital age has in some ways helped the children of modern days. They’ll have so many photos to view! (Just remember to print them and make some albums, mom and dad!!!) It’s been such a sweet thing to experiment with newborn photography this winter and I’m pleased to announce that I’m offering In-Home Newborn Photography for the year of 2019! If you’re located in Des Moines and expecting your first, I’d love to photograph life with your little one in your space. Packages including maternity photos are also available! This is such a tender season of life, and one that will honestly be a blur. Let me help you capture memories to help you look back on these sweet, changing days.

All that said, it was a joy to get to visit my sweet friends Dan & Danae, just 5 days after their newest member arrived! Little Brezlin has completely stolen their hearts! I always consider it an honor when my past couples let me continue to photograph their lives. (You can view their engagement and wedding photos that we took!) Their cozy first home let in just enough light for some moody family photos, and some brighter classic newborn shots!

Part Two: all about baby!

Brezlin started out pretty aware & awake. She’s got the biggest baby eyes, and a full head of dark hair. She’s going to be a beauty! Also, I loooove incorporating special items. The white and purple quilt was made for Brezlin by a grandmother!

This was such great chance for me to practice just a little more of my newborn swaddling. (Spoiler: still not quite perfect!) I’m looking forward to hearing from more sweet couples this year & getting to watch their families grow!
