Williams Maternity Session

Anddddd before you know it its  practically JUNE!!!! These weeks have really gotten away from us. Between sessions, weddings, all these beautiful children being brought into this world honestly the last thing I remember is this blog. Which sounds horrible, but here I am making another attempt at blog normality. 

This family right here is so very close to my heart. I worked with Nick & Brittney at the Cheesecake Factory for years. We were all so excited when they got married, and now are ecstatic that they are welcoming another sweet child into the family! 

We had so much fun planning for this. As what is becoming a common theme with this 2018 weather, we had to plan for a few days to avoid the cold and the rain, but we lucked out with the most beautiful evening! 

We spent the evening photographing away in the most beautiful golden light. It was a dream come true, and their love shone right through the photographs. 

We cannot wait for this new addition to be here. Show this family some love! 

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.
