| Zirkes Family 2019 |

Just over a year ago a message from a mom to be that I had never met looking for a last minute maternity session appeared in my inbox; she was so sweet and beyond excited to welcome their little one in a few short weeks!  I will be forever grateful that she took that leap and left that message!  It has been so much fun to get to know Alicia, Matt, & Warren over the last year, such a fun couple with an adorable little guy and I couldn’t wait to help them celebrate his first birthday with a family session.  We headed out to Providence Metropark in Grand Rapids, Ohio last weekend and with great weather after some humid days, it was perfect.  Warren did so well, we saw lots of smiles, giggles, and playing in the dirt!  I look forward to many more wonderful sessions with the Zirkes Family in the future, thank you Alicia for sending that message and Happy 1st Birthday Warren!

Milestone sessions are a wonderful way to capture your little one as they change throughout their first year!  Trevor just turned 1 and was on the move for his 1 Year Session!  At six months he was a snuggle bug, but this time he was on the move and ready to play!  You can’t help but get captured by his sweet personality and those gorgeous blue eyes, they are sure to brighten any day.  Happiest of Birthday’s Trevor!

| Moline Wheeler 1 Year |

Moline is 1!  This sweet girl was in studio a year ago at just six days old, so sweet, fresh, and squishy!  Her mom and dad brought along her John Deere pedal tractor and wagon that day and we have used it in each of her milestone sessions, so wrapping up her one year session with it was perfect!  The Wheeler front porch was an excellent setting for her session as her family prepared for her party that afternoon all around us, a wonderful atmosphere of excitement and love!  Miss Mo is a very meticulous eater, taking her time with her cake, enjoying every bite of the sweet goodness!  We even took a quick break for a cool drink to wash it all down before digging back in!  What a joy it has been to watch Miss Mo grow, Happy 1st Birthday!

| Lawson Gerdeman 1 Year |

It doesn’t seem like almost a year ago little Lawson was in studio for his newborn session, but he will turn one in less than a month!  This sweet, smiley little man was back in studio for his 1 Year milestone session this past weekend and did so well!  We got lots of smiles, a few snuggles, and a snack to help keep those smiles coming.  With the help of his mom, dad, and big sister, we had lots of help in catching his sweet grin!  He has such adorable little curls and a personality that makes you heart smile even bigger!  Happy 1st Birthday Lawson!

| Sophia Allen 1 Year |

This year’s St. Patty’s Day was spent with sweet Miss Sophia!  Just one year ago we took this little peanut’s newborn pictures and here she is, a sweet cheeked 1 Year old with smiles and funny faces for days!  Let’s talk about those amazing catch lights in her beautiful blue eyes, she was loving watching her Mom and Grandma singing behind me, lots of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger songs were happening!  We had some spring flowers around her and she found it hilarious to move them every time her Mom and I placed them around her and it gave us the best facial expressions!  Enjoy the many faces of Miss Sophia!

| Jensen Hamman 1 Year |

Tractors, combines, wagons, and cake, what a perfect way to celebrate Jensen’s 1st Birthday!  It has been a joy to watch this little guy grow and get to see him every three months for his milestone sessions, I am going to miss seeing him and catching up with his mom and dad!  We headed out to some great remote locations full of old barns and gorgeous tall grass, perfect for pedal tractors and straw bales.  Once we captured some smiles we added his John Deere cake and he loved it!  Icing from his head to his piggies and about half of it gone!  Thank you Hamman family for a wonderful year of so many smiles and laughs, Happy Birthday Jensen!

| Carter 1 Year |

Last weekend was a beautiful spring day for this handsome little man’s 1 Year pictures & cake smash!  His cake even matched his gorgeous blue eyes!  He had just woken up from a nap in his car seat so we started out playing at the park and then just as we were getting ready for his cake I caught him watching me and was able to capture his perfect, bright blue eyes!  As soon as he saw the cake, his little fingers went right to it and the yummy goodness right into his belly!  After a knee in the cake and some grass in his fingers and hair, Carter decided he had had enough and it was time to clean up!  A big thank you to Carter and his family for a fun afternoon and a Happy Birthday Carter!

| Zaylee 1 Year |

What a great session to end the week with last week!  This beautiful little girl turned 1 on Halloween!  She was in a great mood, Mom and I were able to keep her moving and catch some adorable shots!  We used the rocking chair that was given to her Mom by her Grandma and the leaves and gourds I had brought in from outside were a huge hit!  I love capturing little ones at this age, the session is run by them, we roll with their likes and dislikes, and we follow them so that they can be themselves, and what’s better than catching those gorgeous eyes and long lashes up close as she craws towards you?!  Happy Happy First Birthday Zaylee!

| Ty Henry 1 Year |

Check out this handsome little man!  He was full of so many smiles that it was almost impossible to pick only a few for sneak peaks!  These are just the tip of the ice burg!  Almost a year ago we did his newborn pictures and how he has grown!  He looks so much like his big brother and daddy!  We spent a warm August afternoon at the park letting him just be him and exploring everything his mommy had brought along!  He is walking and ready to be on the move, and no doubt he will be in the combine with daddy this fall!  Happy 1st Birthday Ty!

| Mila Harper 1 Year |

It’s hard to believe that little Mila will be a year this month!  We did newborn pictures at six days old and a fantastic family shoot last fall!  Her smile is contagious, her laugh is adorable, and her personality is so much fun!  She loves her rocker and was such a big girl sitting in it.  She kept a close eye on Mo and made sure he got an extra little bit of lovin’ and was ready to take off as fast as her little legs could carry her!  It has been such an honor to capture her and her gorgeous family at the important stages of her life and I can’t wait for the next time!  Happy Birthday Mila!!!
