North Central Nebraska Newborn Photographer: A Sweet Blessing Times 2!

I have been giddy over this shoot.  When Tara, one of my best friends for over 10 years, called me to tell me that not only was she pregnant, but pregnant with TWINS, I was beside myself.  There are people who may think that I am not a very emotional person, but I have a secret... I  AM!  I cry at sappy movies, get worked up over injustice, laugh until my sides hurt, and get down when I see others hurting.  Being so close, well, Tara and I have experienced all of the above together, and I treasure every single memory.  So, I was ecstatic when she emailed me about coming to Omaha to photograph the beautiful baby boys that she and her husband Travis just brought into this world.

Photographing twins is no small feat.  It takes teamwork...just like raising them, and Tara and Travis are already showing how amazing they are as parents.  I am in AWE.  Seriously.  Passing Emmett and Jack back and forth, tossing wipes to clean up after accidents, stopping for snack breaks, calming one down while the other got his pictures done...well, it was an eventful couple of hours.

So, here are Tara and Travis's beautiful little boys.  It was such a joy to be part of this special day!

Love to you all!

North Central Nebraska Child Photographer: Sneak Preview {Let's Run Katrina}

"I want to run again Katrina!"

Little Miss D. and her mom met me out at our beautiful Mill Race Park this evening after having to reschedule our session from Wednesday when the wind was blowing 45 MPH.  Luckily, the weather could not have been more perfect for our shoot this evening.  The locusts were singing their fall tune, and the colors of autumn colored our scene with their vibrant hues of gold, orange, and red.

Decked out in her leopard print and polka dotted outfits, this little darling was quite the character.  We touched the soft prairie grasses, picked the sand burrs out of our hemlines, played hide and seek, and ran through the park with the sun at our backs...stopping only to get D. her smarties periodically as a reward for being such a big girl. 

You are just as cute as you can be little girl! Going through your pictures just puts a smile on my face!

North Central Nebraska Child Photographer: Sneak Preview {Brotherly Love: C & M}

I always love it when I am presented with the opportunity to photograph my clients on more than just one occasion, so when Rachel sent me a message about scheduling another session for these two handsome little boys, I was ecstatic!  I photographed Max for his 1 year session when little Charlie had yet to make his appearance, and then last winter, we got together again for a session for Charlie's 6 month pictures.  Both times, these little boys just had me in stitches with their little personalities.  :D
They are just as adorable as can be!  I have never seen such cute dimples on a little one, and every time Charlie flashes his little smile, it makes me giggle, and I just want to pinch his cute little cheeks!  Max was a tougher audience, but once my awesome helpers (his cousins Cole and Emma) started counting to him in Spanish, well, the grin came out and he flashed a million watt smile at us.  Well armed with bribes (Smarties), Grandma Hilda, Cole, Emma, and I worked as quite a team to keep these two entertained!

Thanks to all my awesome assistants for your help tonight!  Charlie and Max, you are just as handsome as you can be!
