Welcoming Little Puppy Kali to Her New Family!

Baby animals will always hold a special place in my heart – especially the bond between a new baby pet and its new home and family. This little white pupple, Kali, was recently welcomed into a new home with her own sibling to love: the little puppy Kilo that I photographed last year!

Kali is an absolute dream puppy to visit – though she’s apparently a bit of a handful! While she’s a sweet little girl, her owners say she’s also a bit of a biter, and they’ve taken to hiding some of her favorite things to chew (including rugs). To guests, however, Kali is a complete sweetheart. She wags her tail when you address her, loves to be bet and play with her plentiful toys, and is the stereotypical hyperactive (but loveable) puppy.

With all of that being said, enjoy these adorable puppy photos of the first moments of Kali’s life in her new home along with her big brother, Kilo. She’s such a cutie!

Capturing Amy and Ben’s Playful Family

I’ve been spending so much time on client’s country homes – and it’s making me jealous! Much like other clients I’ve had recently, Amy and Ben live on a gorgeous, sprawling country property that fully envisions everything that’s amazing about Iowa beauty. With large, sprawling cornfields nearby, lovely barns and other buildings as backdrops, and of course, lots of beautiful greenery and trees, Amy and Ben’s home looks like a picture-perfect property.

And of course, this gorgeous property made a perfect backdrop for their playful Iowa family photos. Their son has tons of abounding energy, and he wants to play just as much as he wants to take photos. His playful attitude translated great for photos too – he was up for some anything I asked him to do – and isn’t that the best way to get family photos? Having photos that shows the boundless energy of your family while they’re still young?

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their session:

Stunning Fall Portraits with Angela and Shawn’s Lovely Family

The fall season is my absolute favorite for photos. Catch it early enough in the season, and it’s one of the few seasons with gorgeous colors and comfortably-dry (and pretty!) grass to work with. Plus, what kid (or adult!) can resist playing in a beautiful pile of leaves? The answer is “very, very few”.

That clearly was the case when I had the chance to photograph Angela and Shawn’s family at their gorgeous country home. The stunning fall colors only served as a backdrop for a fun-loving and playful family. Their lovely kids offered no complaint when I suggested playing in the leaves, and everybody was up for the challenge of trying some cute pose ideas.

Check out these adorable shots!

Christina and Phillip Welcome a Gorgeous Girl to their Family!

While I find newborns adorable, I’ll admit that I haven’t had the chance to spend too much time around the little humans throughout my adult life. Like anywhere else in the animal kingdom, there’s something very special about the bond that the parents seem to find with a baby when they take responsibility for caretaking and keeping the child safe.

I’ve known Christi for a really long time; we actually met in college. Now that we’re a couple years older, she’s started a family, and an adorable one at that! Her daughter was an absolute joy to photograph. I swear, she’s going to grow up being so comfortable in front of a camera. Not only was she a delight to photograph, but you could clearly see the love between the entire family – even with something as simple as feeding or rocking her to sleep.

I’m looking forward to seeing her grow up – and hopefully getting the chance to capture even more of her memories as her little toes grow into a bit-bigger toes!

Check out some of these lovely photos of Christi’s gorgeous family:

Angela and Shawn’s Gorgeous Family!

I don’t know what it is about the holiday season, but it always seems to manage to get me behind on all of the lovely things I want to do. I think it’s something about getting the (fantastic) excuse to hang out and spoil the people I care about that tends to lead me to having less free time than usual. Life wouldn’t be nearly as fun without those people in my life, so I suppose that’s a pretty good excuse!

However, it means I’m a bit late with sharing some of my favorite images from Angela and Shawn’s family. I had a blast photographing Angela and Shawn and their three children.

As a Northwest Iowa photographer and Central Iowa photographer, I travel around the area quite a bit, so I was happy to meet them at their own farm for quite a few of the photos. Their property is absolutely gorgeous; sometimes I wish I had the chance to wake up to such large, sprawling land in the mornings.

The oldest girl was happy to play model anytime she was asked, and she’s clearly going to grow up to be a gorgeous girl when she gets older. The younger two brothers definitely have a connection – and seem to love to try and get in trouble! I’m sure they’re a handful, but they all seemed so sweet.

Enjoy some of the photos of her loving family!

P.S.: She’s also an Intial’s Consultant as well!
