Maternity Photography | Baby Rowan

Internet, meet Brit & Quinn.

These two are sooooo adorable together. He cooks for her, she snuggles him. He is everything she’s ever wanted and she makes him feel whole.  After a life with lots of girls in the house, they are welcoming their first boy. A change a pace might be …fun??? Having boys myself, I know what they’re in for. 😉

I met Brittany many years ago when my oldest boy was in her care as a lil baby! ❤️ We instantly became friends. We knew this was a friendship that could withstand miles close or far apart and have been there for each other in the hardest moments. I have watched Quinn and Brit grow closer together, have a baby girl, plan most beautiful wedding with vows that made me ugly cry, and now I am blessed to capture some memories of their second little baby in her belly.

❤️❤️ be still my heart!!!

+1 makes 5

I am just so in love with these girls.  You all (going to try and keep my ya’ll’s to a minimum ???? since I have that bad habit!) anyway… YOU ALL know by now I have two BOYS, they are full of wild, screaming, wrestling, jumping off my railings onto the furniture, craziness! Joc (the adorable momma in these pics, in case you don’t know her), tells me her girls are pretty wild too.  GOOD! They will fit right in when I steal them.  Seriously, dying over their cuteness.

*Ok, since this is the internet I am going to make a note that I won’t actually steal them …. but I totally want to.

So… back story of this photoshoot… I am blessed to have been able to capture the memories of this family since they were pregnant with babes #1.  Now babes #3 is in the tum-tum, Joc mentions she wants a few black & white images for one spot in particular in her house.  I went searching for the perfect white wall to bounce their adorableness off of. It was a really sketchy location but (and I quote) “I trust you Kara” … (slight inside squeal) ???????????? yayy!!!!

The Kuehn Family

These little babes are soooo cute, and did pretty good I must say at braving the cold today! ????  “Your greatest contribution to the kingdom of God may not be something you do, but someone you raise.” -Andy Stanley

Winter Wonderland

We booked the session, got really excited for some end of the fall season colors and grasses, and then woke up to LOTS of snow.  Instead of sporting some upside-down smiles, we embraced it – and I’m so glad we did!!!  Thanks Brit, Quinn and girls for being up for anything! 🙂

Beach and a Bridge on a Back Country Road | Spindler Family Session

After a cool and cloudy day, the sun decided to peek out just in time for this fun family session!  We had a perfect afternoon running in the warm sand, throwing rocks in the river, and snuggling up for some adorable photos!  Beau and Austyn Rose were on point with their poses as always (I’m pretty sure they should sign up for a Gap casting call), and although Stetson is usually Mr. Serious, we were even able to squeeze a few smiles out of him! 🙂

The kids thought it would be really awesome if Mom & Dad took their photo in the water … (did I forget to mention that “Mom & Dad” are also model worthy???)

 

Toonen Family | Eau Claire, Wisconsin

These 3 (and a half) showed up to my home right after finding out that her little bump was indeed a BOY!!  While no one at the time could find out, they let me in on the secret so we could take some super cute blue propped photos!

Not long after, I found myself giddy with joy when I received Danielle’s text wanting to setup another photoshoot!  Cody is so precious, and was by far the best little newborn I’ve ever had the opportunity to photograph.  He slept when we needed him to (for the most part), and opened his eyes when we wanted him awake.  And as always, Carter was quite the little charmer, and such a good Big Brother! 🙂

Prohovnik Family

I just have to start by saying that I absolutely LOVE this family.  They have been coming to me since Jocelyn was pregnant with little girl #1!  It is so much fun to watch a family grow, and it is even more fun to be the one capturing those special moments along the way.  As always, the girls show up smiling and adorable as buttons.  We ran around, escaped from frogs and watched ducks … oh, and I guess there was a little picture taking in there too! 🙂

Jeremiah, Kristy + Aiden

Talk about an amazing family! Not only are they super cute on the outside, but they are genuinely sweet people on the inside. I met them at a wedding, Kristy and I then decided we needed to work together. It went so well she scheduled more for when her family would be in town again! With a trailer packed full behind their SUV, they made a pit stop at the park for some photos before being on their way to Virginia. Can’t wait for them to come back for more (this time as a family of FOUR)!
