Here’s a little peek into Bryar’s newborn session!
Bryar and her family visited me in the studio when she was six days old…and oh my, was she a sweetheart! Her mom asked for an all neutral session…which photographed beautifully against her skin tones. I couldn’t get over her full head of hair and giggled at all of the faces she made while she slept. I’m so grateful that this family chose me to capture this special time in their lives.
Welcome to the world, pretty girl!

Today we’re featuring Maddy, class of 2017, who specifically requested an “urban senior session”. Together, with her mom and sister in tow, we took to the streets to find all the best alleys, doors, tracks, and shops in downtown Sioux Falls! Being able to personalize her session with some of her favorite spots (like Coffea and the Bread Co.) was so meaningful, and so “her”. (And creatively….I absolutely loved it too)
A little bit about this special girl: Maddy likes hiking, good coffee, exploring small shops for vinyls and antiques, and traveling. She has served on mission trips, volunteers at the Banquet, and is involved in volleyball and track. She has two younger siblings that she adores, so not surprisingly, she said that her family is one thing that she could not live without.
Maddy…you are bright, sarcastic, fun to be around, and I love the sparkle in your eye when you smile. I wish you the best for your senior year and hope that you make lots of memories with old and new friends! xx

I have slowly built up a short list of some of my favorite locations to take my clients in the surrounding Sioux Falls area…and downtown is quickly moving up towards the top this summer! There are so many unique doors, staircases, brick walls, and nooks that I discover each time I shoot. And another perk…the kids have a chance to run around and we don’t have to worry about traffic (well, aside from the occasional slow moving passerby). The sun is perfectly hidden by the tall buildings which makes the light in the alley bright, airy, and magical.
And, how about this family’s coordinating outfits? The colors pop against the backdrop and captures their playful and fun personalities so well! These kids…well, they are the definition of F-U-N! They were the perfect mix of sweet and rambunctious which reminded me of my three boys at home. Thank you SO much to these parents for laughing and maintaining a light-hearted attitude…you allowed your children to be themselves and their smiles reflect it in the pictures. Enjoy your sneak peak of a few of my favorites! ♥

My clients are the cutest, I swear! When I first met Maeve four months ago, I instantly fell in love with her sparkling eyes and sweet disposition. This time around, we added in her dad and took some family portraits before her first birthday cake smash session…and boy, she didn’t disappoint. Happy first Birthday Maeve!
Her mom planned such a cute outfit for her smash. And, although she hardly touched her cake, we still got a big smile out of her before she let us know that she was “over it”.
The weather was gorgeous and the sunset was the perfect backdrop for this milestone session.

I cannot believe that this is the third time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family as part of their baby plan package. This Sioux Falls park was such a spectacular backdrop for this sweet couple and Maxwell’s big brown eyes sparkled in these sunset images!
Mr. Maxwell was just a newborn the last time we met (see below) and is now 6 months old with the perfect amout of baby chub. He’s a dream to photograph and has yet to be anything but super mellow and sweet. <3 I may just go through withdrawals from this guy after he “graduates” from his milestone plan in 6 months…
He was born with the BEST head of hair, ever! His newborn session will forever include some of my favorite images because of it.
Maxwell :: 14 days fresh.
The baby plan package includes four sessions to capture the milestones from maternity through the first year.
