I was headed to a milestone session when I got the call that this little one would be born soon, and we’d be taking some birth photos at Mercy Hospital! No one knew she was a girl, and that always adds a layer of anticipation in birth stories. By the time I finished my milestone session, it was time to head to the hospital. And by the time I got to the hospital, mom was almost pushing! It was a close one, but I made it in plenty of time to tell the birth story, and capture many great images of the family afterwards.

Big brother was so sweet. He was a little shy about her at first, but it didn’t take him long to warm up!  Soon after he was smothering her with kisses every few minutes. This baby girl has some very proud grandparents, too. I would say she is going to be one well loved little baby.

Mom was about as laid-back as they come through her labor. She is an L&D nurse at Mercy herself, plus a second time mom, so she was well versed and calm about every single thing. She even smiled during the pushing process. That is something I don’t see too often, and I was so amazed!

It’s exciting to me to be able to host a session in my studio in O’Fallon, Illinois.  So the opportunity to take these baby girl newborn photos made me very happy.  This little miss was perfect – she barely made a single fuss the entire session. And with newborns, you know that can sometimes be rare!  Her parents were incredibly laid back, so she must get it from them.

She’s definitely a sweetie, and I loved the emotion that came through when they were being photographed while holding their baby. I always enjoy being able to catch mom and dad separately holding and interacting with their little ones.  However, it’s the family shots that really make my heart melt!  Seeing them all together was so wonderful, and so peaceful.  This little beauty is surrounded by love.

There’s almost nothing better to do on a warm summer evening than photographing a mama-to-be, and this Forest Park maternity session was no different.  I loved meeting these two, and it was so exciting to be able to capture the love that they share.  They are so thrilled to be welcoming a new little one into the world.  And it is always a privilege to be able to show that.  I was able to capture some beautiful intimate moments between these two.  It is an exciting time for them, and I know their new addition will be well loved!

I’ve had such fun capturing Luke as he’s grown over his first year, and this one year studio session was a great way to celebrate that.  We’ve gotten to spend a lot of time together, from maternity to newborn to 4 months to 8 months and now 12 months! I’m also excited that I get to see him again soon, because Luke is going to be a big brother!  This family is adorable, and you can tell how much they love each other.  I know they are so excited for their new addition to join them, and Luke is going to make a great big brother.

Luke was full of smiles, and he lights up around his parents.  We were able to catch some great mommy snuggles!  And it was so much fun watching him play with his dad.  I can’t wait to see Luke interact with his new sibling.
