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.

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!

It is a known fact, I love {ok am slightly obsessed} dimples.

Mr. Clayton DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT.

How adorable is he?

I have known his momma for quite a few years now.  We went to high school together & we even swam together : back. in. the. day.

It was wonderful to see you again Erin & I look forward to staying in touch.

You have a beautiful beautiful little boy.

Baby Tate’s Baptism | Janesville Wisconsin Event Photographer

Sweet little baby Tate

Oh he wasn’t super pleased with the idea of his Baptism day.  But with the help of his mommy, daddy, family & friends he made it through.

You might remember him from a recent BLOG post.  I photographed him at his home for his Newborn session, click here to see that post.

It was an honor for me to photograph Tate’s baptism at St. William Catholic Church in Janesville.

The light is absolutely beautiful & Father John did a wonderful job.

Enjoy the sneak peek

The {P} Family | Janesville Wisconsin Newborn & Baby Photography | On-location

Sweet little baby Tate.

I met his mom almost a year ago when she called & asked me to photograph her nephew as a surprise gift for her sister.

We’ve kept in touch this past year & was so excited to hear about her pregnancy news!

I’ve had the opportunity to photograph several of Tate’s older cousins & look forward to watching this clan of little babies get older.

I’m not sure I can emphasis enough just HOW. MUCH. I. LOVE. TO. PHOTOGRAPH. NEWBORNS.

Yikes. Amazing.

Thank-you to awesome clients like Kellie & Chad who allowed me into their home & gave me free creative range to capture their little one.

Seriously, they just melt my heart.  I love every minute of it.

{even if they do perhaps tinkle on my blankets}

It was great to spend the morning at your home K & C, enjoy the sneak peeks!

Meet Tate, the Rockstar.

I couldn’t help but include this image.  I will say though that he didn’t do this very often during his session.  I think this was just a little squeal  & he went right back to sleep.

But look at those wrinkles, love it!
