I was so excited to get to photograph Kyler & Kaden. I’ve known them for years, since Kyler and my son went to daycare together as toddlers. I’m told that after they got home from the session, one of these adorable little boys told his mom that he couldn’t wait to see the images because he just knew that they were going to be adorable!
A couple years ago, I photographed this beautiful couple’s wedding. A few weeks ago, I got to meet their beautiful daughter and spend the evening with them in the same spot we did their engagement session, in the gardens behind the Des Moines Art Center.
Congrats, L&R, on your beautiful little girl!!!
Happy Half Birthday, Adalynn!
Adalynn is 6 months old! Ashley was SO excited that her baby girl was half a year old and wanted to celebrate! Adalynn was a little disappointed when the cupcake wasn’t real, but it made for some cute cute cute shots!
When Nicole found out she was pregnant with baby #5, she knew early on that naming the baby would be difficult. All of her children’s first names begin with the first letter of the previous sibling’s middle name. With big sister Maddie Elise (and her other big sister being named Erica), coming up with a third E name was going to be difficult!
And so, baby #5 was quickly nicknamed Hashtag #5.
And also quickly, the basketball team jokes started.
So we had to do a play on both for the Lepper’s maternity session. The concept was the basketball team, with Mom/Recruiter Nicole looking uncomfortable and very pregnant, Dad/Coach Matt arguing with their middle child, Logan, about the baby’s name (with lots of E options) scrawled on the chalkboard), and the rest of the team waiting impatiently for #5 to arrive!
A special thank you to Val at Notre Dame for letting ususe the gym. The colors and setting were PERFECT!
Hey Good Lookin’!
Easton came to me for his 5 month session, and I could just eat him up!!! Isn’t he a doll?!
