munchkins, sunset, and little ones | des moines children and family photography

this last weekend we had some AMAZINGLY fun photosession.  a sunset shoot, that almost didn't happen due to storms coming.  but seriously, it ended up being GORGEOUS!  and the Jacksons ROCKED the session!  i can't wait to share more from their session soon!

we also had the pleasure of capturing Baby Knox's (seriously, that is a GREAT name!) newborn photos.  he was a delight.  newborns can be very long, sometimes difficult shoots.  you have to follow the baby's schedule and have LOTS of patience.  we love doing newborns, but this one was ESPECIALLY fun, because he was EASY!  he was so calm and relaxed the whole time.  mom and dad (and older sister) were awesome the whole time!

and then there is my Dylan....oh man, this kid is a handful.  he is our youngest (of 4) and is trouble with a capital T.  gotta love him though.  they don't come much cuter than that!

Starry Hosts | Des Moines Custom Art

my sweet little pea happily modeled for an art shoot today.  i have had this concept in mind and when she bopped out of her room with newly curled hair (thank you big sister!) i knew i needed to grab my camera and lights and get this artwork going.  she was an amazing little model for me.  being so patient and looking absolutely adorable.  i love how it turned out.  i think i might have this printed VERY LARGE on a canvas for my dining room.  (after i do a few more custom art pieces with the other 3 kidlets!) ---- nicole

Real Life | Easter Outfits

One would think that getting a photo of your children in their Easter attire would be an easy task, since you are a professional photographer.....ummm....NO!  This is real life people.  Payton (left) looking adorably innocent (don't let her fool you), Tyler trying to control the situation (and failing) and Dylan trying to run away (and winning)....oh and Maddie missing, because you can't expect a 14 year old to get ready quickly.  Yep.  Real life.  And I love it.

Happy Easter!
