When people I know have a new baby, I find a way to go catch some newborn snuggles. FAST! ;) Little lady Abigail was no exception! Her mom grew up in my home church but was enough older than I that we were never friends, just acquaintances. Fast forward a while and with Facebook, we’re now “friends”.. haha! Anyhow, Alison and I connected when she was looking for someone to watch her baby this summer. I met her & her husband, all three of us hit it off (this is gonna be a long friendship, y’all) and everyone was just eager for baby to come.

Cassie and I have been friends since childhood. We were never “best friends” but our lives overlapped a lot in elementary and high school years. She brought the party to any gathering, and never showed up quietly. ;) Wes entered her life in high school… and never left. Ha! They got engaged a few years later, and actually came to me in Ames for their engagement photos. It was cold and wintery, not unlike this day. It didn’t work out for me to do their wedding, sadly. And since they live in Cedar Rapids, and I in Des Moines, we haven’t crossed paths in person since then.
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. This chance was no exception. Click the blog title to see more of my photos (practice makes perfect!) of this sweet little one.
Jackie emailed me a while back, asking if I’d be willing to make the trek up to Minnesota for some newborn photos in their home. I excitedly agreed, which brings us to this blog post. Buckle up and guard your hearts— this little man is going to try hard to steal them away with his tiny cuteness!
