In preparation for breastfeeding awareness month in August, I asked one of my old friends from high school if she would mind modeling for a shoot. I’ve never done such a session and was stepping out of my comfort zone, but I feel like these images turned out amazing. Tasteful and pure. They are not meant to offend anyone, but to raise awareness and embrace nursing for moms who choose to nurse. I am an advocate for those moms, but I am also a realist. Breastfeeding is fantastic for some, not for others, and that is OK and I embrace that as well.
During our session, I was also able to capture some of their typical day to day life, and I’m pretty sure I burned calories by just watching Thomas run around and jump! What a beautiful family this is and how blessed they are to have one another!
Little man Ryker joined the world on Tuesday and I was able to capture his sisters meeting him for the very first time! His twin sisters, Olivia and Gabrielle, were so excited to meet their brother, but only Olivia dared to hold him. She actually couldn’t keep her cute little hands off him, and it was so precious! Gabrielle admired from afar, but couldn’t keep her eyes off of him either. Welcome, Ryker, to the Eickholt family!
I’m catching up on posts tonight and couldn’t wait to do just one more! I’ve had the privilege of photographing Harper in the womb, as a newborn and now at 4 months old! She’s so beautiful and looks just like her daddy! Deep brown eyes, a smile that stretches from cheek to cheek, and a squeal to go with it!
So one of the best parts about photographing children is that I get to see them grow! I started photographing ElleyAnna when she was only 4 months old and have seen her for all of the major milestones since! I can’t believe she’s 1 already, and baby girl is growing up to be such a beautiful little girl! Happy Birthday sweet girl!
What a perfect day to photograph two beautiful sisters. The field was perfect, the lighting was perfect, and the girls are stunning! I actually loved these photos so much that I had a very hard time narrowing them down for edits! Addi was a super-model, posing throughout the session and Jocelyn was just as cute as can be without even trying! Enjoy!
I was so lucky to be able to photograph sweet baby Riley over the weekend! She is the sweetest little peanut, weighing in at a whopping 4 bs 13 ounces when she was born! She was seriously the happiest baby, smiling huge, ear-to-ear smiles throughout our session. Hold onto your seats and be prepared for some major cuteness!
Ava came to visit me tonight for her free mini session, won on my Facebook page a few weeks ago! She just turned 1 year old yesterday, so perfect timing for her shoot! This little one is full of spirit and personality. She’s actually a rainbow baby, losing her big sister last year to brain cancer. Unfortunately, this sweet family lost their dear Abby before Ava was born, so she wasn’t able to meet her big sister. We were able to include a few pictures with big sister Abby’s photo, and I’m sure she’ll cherish these when she’s older. Hold on to your seat and be prepared for some major cuteness!
