Emma | Lifestyle Newborn Session

BLOG POST MONDAYYYY!! 

This Monday could not get here quick enough. We have had so many great sessions this past week, we just want to edit them alllll! So thankful that Monday's are typically more restful which means more can get done.  It really helps that it's a tad cold and cloudy, which makes me want to enjoy my time inside even more. 

It was a little chilly the day Emma was born too! We were so excited to get to see her only 3 days into her earth side appearance.  Her little lashes & toes and milk spots we just so cute. As a company, Stef and I find it so important to offer sessions that fits every family.  Emma's mom got a lifestyle session and some pictures of Emma and her big brother Thomas together! Thomasdecided that his fireman outfit looked amazing and we actually loveeee how that turned out. Emma's real life protector. Of course Ryder (the first baby) had to jump into some too. Thomas keep calling her "Sister" and Emma "baby sister". HOW.STINKING.CUTE (also have I mentioned how much we love having dogs in our sessions?)

Thank you for letting us spend the morning with you guys!!! 

 

Riley Sage | Newborn Session

Here we are, Winter is finally coming to an end. Yet, as I type this we have a snow warning in our area and I'm kindddddaaaa hoping it misses us. I'm all about winter for about a month, but after Christmas if it just turned into Summer you would not hear me complaining. We just had to set our clocks forward, and our sessions are getting planned for later in the evening (FINALLYYYY) The sun setting so early really is not good for anyone. 

Spring brings a bundle of new possibilities. Including so many new little ones! Riley was our second Spring baby born and man what a joy she is! You can already see how great of parents Kristin & Dustin are going to be. They have been ready for her arrival since our maternity session with them in the Fall! 

Whoever says newborn sessions are easy.... man, they are wrong. Newborn sessions are fun and meticulous. They test your patience, your skill as a photographer and an improve thinker. They are everything but easy, and Riley reminded us of that! Two hours in and we could  not figure out what this little babe wanted, until we did. She just wanted to be  so, so, soooooooooo warm! Heating pad and space warmer on high, A/C off! She bundled up and let us pose away!!! So excited for the images we got, scroll through to see!!! At the end there may be some pictures of their maternity session too ;) 



 

Ariana | Two Weeks New

Man oh man. It is baby season over at House of Amsel. Ariana was our first of three little ones being born in the next two weeks! Words can't describe the happiness we see in all our new families and this was no different. Both her mom and dad were glowwwwwing in a way only new parents could. With each pose we did, they were laughing and smiling with excitement for the finished product. 

Newborn sessions are a fun kind of challenge. You really never know what you are going to get. Stef and I were so lucky in with little Ariana because she slept THE WHOLE TIME! For people who know how newborn sessions go, this is extremely rare. I don't think we saw this little angels eyes once! She allowed us to pose her and wrap her ten times over and she Did. Not. Move.
