Michelle + Michael | Maternity | Janesville Wisconsin Maternity Photography

Michelle + Michael

M + M = Baby Brusberg

This maternity session was especially meaningful to me.

I’ve known Michelle & Michael now for almost 4 years.  I met them when they first booked me for their wedding & have had the pleasure of working with them ever since.  Not only have M & M been clients, but I’m also proud to call them my friends.

Michelle started assisting on weddings for me a couple years ago & it has been a pleasure to get to know both her & Michael better as well as their families.

When planning this Maternity session we knew our vision was a mixture of studio & outdoor {sunset}.  We ALMOST rescheduled because the heat was suppose to be unbearable that day but we decided to chance it, because this was very important to Michelle & “just in case” she was early we wanted to be prepared.

Well the “just in case” certainly happened & little baby Greta May Brusberg was born three days later.

{Note : Michelle was the first of TWO clients in the month of June that went into Labor within three days after our session.  So if you are booking a session @ the end of your pregnancy, know that my photo sessions, just may induce labor, ha ha}

Enjoy your Sneak Peek M & M.

I’m so so happy for you both & look forward to watching you embark in this crazy thing called parenthood.

Love to you both & sweet baby Greta

Christy & Eric | Baby Boy OR Baby Girl ? | Janesville Wisconsin Maternity Photographer

BOY or GIRL

Which will it be?

This momma & dad-to-be decided to find out & keep it a BIG ‘OLE FAT secret from everyone.

I give them a lot of credit for keeping that secret from their loved ones.

{ Lets just say : I love the perks of my job }

I may or I may not know…. :)

The night before our session, C & E were in the emergency room.  Everything was totally fine with little baby “peanut”.  It was Christy who needed to be seen.

She was absolutely determined to get her wedding ring back on for the Maternity Session, well she got it on alright, but it ended up turning her fingers/hand blue & off they went to the E.R. in the middle of the night.  Luckily they were able to cut the ring off & actually C was able to slip it on during our session still.

Also a big HUGE thanks to daddy-o for going out to get the bag of peanuts, mid-session.

I had a blast getting to know you both & I look forward to welcoming that little

GIRL or BOY peanut into your lives, really soon.

Enjoy the sneak peeks

Welcome to the world baby Ellen | Wisconsin Birth Photography

Sweet Baby Girl Ellen

{Born May 2, 2011}

Recently when asked what one of my favorite things to photograph was, I quickly answered : births.

To accurately describe the love & emotion that is present @ that time is next to impossible.  I love capturing that, I love being around it & love documenting it.

Particularly for this family it was very important to have a very pleasant birth experience & documenting the first few moments as a family of four.

Many times for mommy’s {& daddy’s too} you are so much in the moment that taking photos is the farthest from your mind.  You’ve been waiting 9 LONG months to meet this new person & all you want to do is stare at their beautiful face.  Especially for c-section mommies documenting a birth can be helpful because I was able to go with daddy into the nursery & document those moments so that mommy isin’t missing out.

To see the DVD slideshow set to music please click here

Thanks for the wonderful opportunity K & M.  I hope this experience was everything you dreamed of & congrats on being a family of 4 now!

Beckett | Janesville & Madison Wisconsin Newborn Photographer

Beckett Cooper

{14 days old}

Newborns, newborns, newborns.

They always seem to have their own agenda for our sessions, mr. Beckett did as well.

Many times people will ask how long a typical newborn session will last & it is always difficult to judge.

Every baby is different {every baby has their own idea of how they are going to allow me to photograph them}

I love the challenge.  I love the adventure & most of all, I sincerely love {as long as it may take} capturing this brief moment in their lives, when everything is so new.

New for the family, new for the baby & new for the world.

I loved having the opportunity to photograph Beckett with his eyes open, because he was a little older I was able to capture his eyes, looking around, exploring his new surroundings.

I photographed his big brother {Maguire} several years ago.  Their mommy & daddy were one of my very first clients when I started my business.

I might add that big brother Maguire was very very cooperative for his portion of the photo session & that was much appreciated.

S & E, enjoy your sneak peeks & I hope that your new family of four is doing well!

Charlie & his piggies | Janesville Wisconsin Baby Photographer

Sweet little Charlie was absolutely perfect for his 6 month session @ his Grandma & Grandpa’s farm.

I love photographing on-location, to me it really personalizes their session & in some circumstances can be a bit more meaningful to the family as well.

We decided to photograph at the family farm for Charlie’s session & I was so excited when I got there to see all of the possible spots to shoot.

Mom came very prepared with adorable outfits, shirts & hats {may from www.etsy.com } & some great ideas too.

You can certainly tell that this little guy is very VERY well loved.

Thanks for a great morning Jennifer & Dan, enjoy your sneak peek!

Brand New Baby Eleanor | Janesville Wisconsin Newborn Photographer

Melissa & Brandon brought their sweet little baby girl into the studio for her newborn session.

I met M & B several years ago when I photographed their engagement session & was so excited to hear they were expecting.

Newborns involve a lot of work & patience but so rewarding, I love taking the time to cuddle them down to sleep & prepare them for the next shot.

The love between this little family of three, is so amazing. Documenting that was my pleasure!

Thanks for your time M & B and it was great visiting with you both again.

Hailey Belle | Modern Chicago Illinois & Wisconsin Baby Photographer

Hailey Belle & her parents came into the studio last weekend for her 6 month session {approximately}

I love watching parents interact with their little ones, and Heidi & Mike are such loving/doting parents.  It was so cute to watch.

I love love LOVE the bond between a father & his daughter, it’s just so amazing.  Mike I hate to tell ya, but you better be saving up for that BMW now :)

This was her first visit to the studio & she did so well with all of her outfit changes & crazy ideas that her mommy & I had.

I traveled to her home for the newborn session {click here to see} so it was fun to have her in studio for this session!

I’ve known Hailey’s momma for several years now.  We went to college @ Bradley University & lived at our Sorority house the same year.  Thanks to Social Media {read : Facebook} we’ve stayed in touch & I was so honored to hear from her when she asked me to photograph her soon to be born baby girl.

Heidi & Mike :

I had a great time visiting with you both in the studio about all things from parenting to the end of the world next year ;)

Mike you are my go to guy for information on that topic.

Hailey is just precious & the love you guys have as a family is so evident.  Enjoy every minute with her.

Enjoy the sneak peek & see you in a few months!

Liam turns ONE | Janesville Wisconsin Baby Photographer

Mr. Liam turns ONE.

Ahhh this little man is so stinkin’ adorable.

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Liam & his big sister Anika for the past several years & these children are ALWAYS full of smiles & their mommy brings the cutest outfits which is a bonus!

This time was no different, we had a great time & Liam was such a trooper for his many outfit changes.

But it did pay off in the end when he got to eat his Birthday Cake!

Happy Birthday mr. Liam!

M & M and baby {girl} M | Janesville Wisconsin Maternity & Newborn Photographer

Michelle & Michael had a wonderful snowy day for their big maternity {REVEAL} session.

Many of you may recognize Michelle, she is my 2nd shooter for many of my weddings & a super fabulous gal.

I was so excited to do this session for her & her hubby.

So we knew that we wanted to do some sort of {REVEAL} session & Michelle did a lot of planning & asking for help prior to.

She purchased pink & blue balloons & had those ready to go, depending on the results.

Here is the timeline breakdown :

1.  Ultrasound appt on Thursday morning

2.  Technician filled out form & put the results in a sealed envelope

3.  Envelope & pink/blue balloons were delivered to Michelle’s sister Samantha Thursday evening

4.  Samantha opened the envelope & began the process of blowing up several PINK balloons for our session the following morning

5.  We all met early Friday morning & the balloons were brought over in black garbage bags by Michelle’s amazingly helpful sister

6.  We started our session…

I had a blast planning & shooting this session M & M.

It was my pleasure, I’m so SO excited for you both

Before we started the session, I asked M & M what their guess was.

Obviously they were BOTH wrong.

Enjoy the blue guys… it won’t be here for long.

IT’S A GIRL!

This was the first time they found out the sex of their baby when they looked up & saw the balloons released into the sky!

How fun & excited!

I literally was getting goosebumps while I was photographing it!

So this ADORABLE little note was what Michelle prepared prior to their U/S & gave it to the technician to fill out & put in a sealed envelope.

The envelope was then delivered to Michelle’s sister Samantha who helped out greatly in the making of this session.

She opened the envelope & blew 40+ pink balloons the night before our session & put them all in black garbage bags & brought them down early that morning.

Thanks SO much Samantha for your help in the cold for those few hours, your the best!
