Nora- A Rainbow Baby {Loveland Newborn Photography}

Sweet baby Nora made her grand entrance into the world a little bit early but she’s the strongest little fighter and managed to leave the hospital with no time in the NICU! Before she was born, her mama and daddy came into the studio to celebrate this pregnancy with maternity photos. After losing their first baby, they knew this time was special and needed to document it. I’m so happy to be able to offer these indoor maternity sessions in the winter months! So much more comfortable for a pregnant mom!

We were able to incorporate this sweet rainbow headband from Devoted Knits as a way to remember Nora’s older sister.

Little Nora was tiny but mighty! She was such a sweet baby to cuddle and pose!

Wyatt {Loveland Newborn and Sibling Photography}

I met this mama over a year ago when she attended a Snap Happy workshop in my Loveland studio! I helped her understand the basics of getting better photographs of her darling little girl and walked through some of the settings on her DSLR camera. I was so excited to hear from her that she was expecting a second kiddo!

Sweet little Wyatt decided to surprise his family and make his appearance a little early! He was a tiny little guy when he came into my Loveland studio this fall! He was so sweet to snuggle and his big sister did a great job holding him with the proper motivation  (Read: BRIBE! haha!! ) ! Siblings this close in age are always a gamble; we definitely came out winners though!

I love that Wyatt showed his sweet eyes for his session too! He was so calm and just checking out this brand new world <3

Sweet Nolan is such a lucky baby to have joined this fun Windsor, CO family. From the time I spent with them in my Loveland studio I can see that they love big and strong! Big brother was quite taken with his new baby and future best friend! Can you blame him?? Look at that hair and that precious face!! I love how these newborn photos show just how small baby is at just over a week old! He’s grown so much already and his sweet little face is changing.

Newborn Photography, Northern Colorado {Mentoring Review}

Newborn Photography, Northern Colorado {Mentoring Review}

Baby K came in to model for me shortly after I attended mentoring to help perfect my newborn photography with Nicole Smith Photography out of Scottsbluff, NE. The mentoring was amazing and I had so many light bulb moments throughout. The trip to get there on the other hand was a wild ride!

My dear friend Chantry from Chantry Lee Photography flew in from Montana to come with me. We were both trying to minimize our time away from our children and she scheduled her flight to arrive at 11pm. I headed to DIA just as a super heavy rain came in. It was so wet and heavy that the roads were reflecting every single light like crazy and you could hardly see the lines painted on! I of course checked the flight status before I left home (on time) and then again as I was waiting for my Dutch Bros coffee (yay for a late night coffee shop!)  when it showed a 15 minute delay! No big deal as the roads made for slower travel. I got to the airport and got  message from Chantry that her plane had landed but there was no gate available for them to de-board! I ended up circling DIA for about an hour before she was finally set free haha!

We were finally on our way to Nebraska after midnight! Mentoring was starting at 8:30 am and the rain was still coming down really hard and flooding the roads! To make it even more exciting, Chantry was not feeling great after a very turbulent flight in! About an hour into the drive we realized the rain combined with the pitch black night were making a pretty risky combo! We found a hotel in Cheyenne and stopped an hour from home with an hour and half of driving to do in the morning. We woke about an hour and a half later in daylight to 2 inches of snow on the ground!! When we chose our dates for mentoring back in January, we certainly didn’t think we’d be driving to Nebraska in a snow storm in MAY! Typical for Cheyenne, the snow was thick and wet and blowing all over. Luckily about 30 minutes away, the snow turned to rain and we made our way safely to Scottsbluff! 

The first day was packed with learning! We had 3 little models that day and we worked through each pose learning the ins and out how baby should be positioned to show just how tiny and bendy and sweet newborns are! We also worked through some techniques for soothing baby and keeping them happy and settled. When all of the babies headed home we talked business and editing 🙂 Nicole was an open book with us and it was so cool to bounce ideas off of her and talk through some things. After a the biggest plate of nachos you’ve ever seen, we headed to an early bed time and tried to catch up on the sleep we had missed the night before! 

Day two was hands on practice with a sweet baby girl. It was awesome to review and go over questions with a little more rest. My brain was totally swimming with new information at this point but all of my questions were answered and we headed back to DIA just after lunch so we could get back to our own babies (even if they aren’t really babies anymore haha!).

Baby K came to the studio the following week and I got to put all of my new knowledge in practice! I’m so happy with the growth I’ve experience from the mentoring session! For me the change in my work is super obvious! And of course I continue to grow and change a little with each newborn session. Photographers, I’d highly recommend working with Nicole! She had a wonderful way of teaching that just made sense and was easy to remember. I feel like everything she taught was repeatable on my own as well which is huge! 

Mamas, If you are expecting, I’d love to work with you and your new babe! Email me at or through the button below! I’m currently booking due dates October through December <3

Breanna and Justin brought baby Harper into the studio at just 13 days old but we had been planning her session for months! I love when parents contact me in the 2nd trimester so I can be prepared with special sets just for their baby 🙂 Breanna let me know that family photos were very important to them. I’m so thrilled with the results here! You can just feel the pride and love in mom and dad’s arms as they hold their brand new baby girl <3

Justin warned me when he walked in that he was not a fan of being photographed! No worries though! I work so quickly to get these images and make it as painless as possible, when his job was done he was so excited!

I love those sweet gorgeous eyes! Little miss Harper fell asleep right after I took that shot on the right though and did amazing for the rest of her session! That pose is a go to for a sleepy baby who can’t quite pass out. All of those layers wrapped on them make them feel so secure!

Breanna found these adorable little cowboy boots when she was still pregnant with her baby girl. I love how this set up reflects their family and what they love to do! It’s so fun to do one setup like this for a session <3

Of course we did a quick change so there was also a setup to match her nursery <3

 Jack came into my Loveland studio with his sweet mama when he was just a few days old!  It was a nice break for mom who left 18 month old big sister at home with grandma! The studio is so peaceful and calm during newborn photography sessions! When you arrive, you get to take a little break while I care for baby and get them into a nice sleepy state for posing. How adorable is the sweet slumbering baby Jack? And how gorgeous is his mama?!

I found this vintage hershey’s chocolate tin in a local antique store and I just love how these images turned out with it! The little teddy bear is from Jelly Cats. These are my favorite little loveys! My youngest kiddo has a couple of puppies from this brand and they are perfect for tucking under a toddlers arm. They’ve become one of my favorite gifts to give my nieces and nephews! 

Do you have a go to gift for the babies in your life? I’d love to hear all about it! We have a new nephew joining the family in August again!
