Lawson stopped by for his newborn session last weekend and he did amazing!  Slept through the session like a dream and did great while big sister Lylah took a turn giving him some snuggles.  I love when clients bring little things to incorporate into their little one’s sessions!  Kristi & Brandon brought an adorable hat and bear that matched perfectly into one of his sets and we were also able to do a little tribute to Kristi’s dad by surrounding Lawson with some of his John Deere model airplanes!  Love getting to see this sweet family and it will be so much fun to watch Lawson grow, Congrats Brandon, Kristi, & Lylah!

Adorable Miss Moline stopped in for a visit last weekend!  She slept and gave us such cute smiles the whole time!  This week you have seen sneaks of her Mom and Dad’s maternity session and their baby shower invitation, and in true Wheeler fashion we went all in with John Deere greens and yellows, complete with a pedal tractor and wagon.  What’s sweeter than a baby surrounded by tractors?!  I have loved being able to capture part of Noah and Christine’s journey to meeting their beautiful baby girl and am so happy and excited for them and the journey that awaits!  Congratulations Noah and Christine, she is beautiful!

| Maggie Appel Birth Announcements |

Miss Maggie was in studio a few months ago for her sweet newborn session and her family decided to send out birth announcements!  We came up with this adorable custom look for her mom and dad to send to family and friends near and far.  She has changed so much since her session, they just don’t stay little very long!

Say hello to Trevor!  This sweet little guy was in studio for his newborn session last weekend and was so bright eyed!  He is already showing such a cute personality and loved finding his fingers!  As much as he liked being wrapped up tight he wiggled his little hands right up and even waved to us, it was tough to find just a few images to share from his sets!  It’s been such an honor to watch his big sisters Alexis & Emma grow and I can’t wait to see how this little one changes in the next few months!  Congrats Perry Family!

St. Patrick’s day was last Saturday and while many were out celebrating in green, we were in studio with the adorable Miss Sophia and all about pink!  Arriving just a couple week’s early, this little peanut has a cute little personality already and was such fun to cuddle.  So tiny and sweet!  Her Daddy happened to see my son’s toy grain truck and wanted to know if we could work that into her session, of course!  She has such a full head of hair, soft and perfect for a headband!  What a wonderful way to spend the Holiday!  Congratulations Melissa & Brian!

| Wesley Ray |

Say hello to Wesley Ray!  He joined me in studio last weekend for some snuggles and cuddles!  Born just three and a half weeks ago, he is already growing big and strong and doing amazing!  Such tiny fingers, toes, and ears!  This handsome little man is the son of my cousin Rachel and her husband Drew and joins big sister Addison!  It’s hard to believe that this summer will be Addison’s second birthday, how did that happen?!  Wesley did amazing at his session, he slept through almost all of it, and then decided he was going to wiggle out of his wrap at the end so he could sleep with his arm up!  Such a little man with a cute personality already, I loved getting to meet him and can’t wait to see him again!  Congrats Drew, Rachel, & Addison!

| Maggie Appel Newborn 2018 |

Sweet Maggie is kicking off 2018!  She stopped in last Sunday for her session and was an absolute delight!  Wide awake until the end and checking out everything!  Just two years ago I captured Brent & Christy’s wedding and was so excited to hear they were expecting a little one!  There is nothing sweeter than newborn snuggles on a cold afternoon!  Just look at those adorable little toes!  Congrats Brent & Christy!

Meet Addison Renee!  This gorgeous girl made her appearance just a few weeks early, healthy and happy!  She is the daughter of my cousin Rachel and her husband Drew, and affectionately referred to as our niece!  Growing up together, we thought it appropriate when our little guy was born, that Rachel & Drew would be his aunt and uncle, and now our little one has a new little cousin!  She is perfect in every way, such tiny features, looks like her mommy and has a reddish cast to her hair like her daddy.  It was a great day of pictures, snuggles, and catching up!  I can’t wait to watch her and our little one grow up together, play in the haymow, drive the tractors, and make summer sausage together!  Welcome to the family Addison Renee! ❤

This handsome little man just happens to be my husband and I’s nephew!  He made his arrival on July 23 and we did his session at just eight days old; such a cute little personality already!   He did such a great job at his session, so laid back, sleepy, and a very sweet little smile!  No two sessions are ever the same, and his was no exception!  With his daddy being a fireman we got to incorporate that and his mommy’s love for the country!  And of course we can’t wait to get some more snuggles in!  Welcome Gavin Michael!

Saturday I got to spend some of my afternoon with this adorable little country girl!  At only a week and a half she is already very alert and stretching those tiny legs!  Big brother is so proud of her and loves to give her “mooches”!  Of course we couldn’t not get one of big brother keeping watch over us! 🙂  Congrats Cowell Family!
