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

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.

Enjoy your sneak peek!

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.

BrusbergBLOG#16

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

M & M were patiently waiting while I took some “before” shots.

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!

Mama j. & her baby girl | Urban Outdoor Maternity | {Milwaukee Wi Maternity Photographer}

Jessica & baby girl L.

So we had a lot of visions for this session.  But we knew we wanted something outside, something different, something fun.

With a good mixture of creativity I think we got what we were looking for.  Mama is an art teacher at heart & certainly is an artsy mama.  She made the first outfit she had on, well sort of.  Anyhoo it is always fun brain storming ideas with this gal.

I had a great afternoon j & I hope you enjoy the sneak peeks.

s. {natale}

Seriously how YOUNG does she look here?  Is this ‘96 girl?

LembergBLOG#12

OK so this has a super long back story.  We won’t bore you with the details, but K-mama & Bob, this is for you.

LembergBLOG#9

Really it is an image like this that keeps me coming back to maternity sessions as one of my favorites.

You absolutely can not get that feeling back, that tiny itsy bitsy moment where you feel that baby kick & your belly looks like a volleyball.

the smile, the skin, the face, the love.  There is absolutely nothing else in the world like it.

I {heart, heart, double heart} maternity sessions.

Thank-you goes to a random wealthy person outside of Lake Geneva for letting us “borrow” his cool forest for a few photos.

Love love love these fun little blurby signs.

Thanks for taking my vision j. & running with it.  You’re grand.

Kim + Kevin = Baby Boy H. {Janesville Wisconsin Maternity & Newborn Photographer}

Kim & Kevin are expecting a little boy in a few short weeks & recently came into the studio for a maternity session.

I met Kim over 3  years ago.  She was the attending nurse for a birth I photographed at St. Mary’s.  I photographed her & Kevin’s daughters Jasmine & Tia, & was so excited to hear they were expecting baby #3 & it was a sweet little boy!

So excited to meet him @ his newborn session & enjoy your sneak peak!

I know this shot has been done a million & one times, but I still get many couples who request it.  For some reason it really worked for me this time.  I love how this shot fell together for them!

So notice the band on Kevin’s hand.  On the flip side it says “It’s a boy” & he wears it every day, how CUTE is that?

Jennifer & Patrick: Belly & Baby {Janesville Maternity & Newborn Portrait Photographer}

I absolutely LOVE when I get the before & after action with mamas & their babies.   Maternity sessions are one of my favorite things to shoot.  I always tell my clients I just love capturing the look on their face as they enjoy this life-changing moment.  How soon after you give birth, you forget the feeling of  all the kicks, flutters & even that belly button sticking out.  Maternity sessions are becoming more & more popular, I’ve shot 5 in the last 6 weeks & I think they are such an amazing keepsake of that exact moment in your life.  I love it, every part of it.

Doesn’t she look like Kate Hudson?  You go girl, you were adorable!
