While this sweet little nugget of a human just turned 11 months old (say whaaaaat?!?  how is that even possible???), I clearly got a little busy mom-ing & forgot to post her newborn photos. #momfail  Hey, at least I’m getting around to it now… better late than never, right? 🙂

On our last day in the hospital, I was finally feeling up to moving around a bit & making myself presentable, so we had a mini photo session while waiting to be sent home.  I absolutely adore these first photos of our new family of 3.

Those cheeks were THE SQUISHIEST I’ve ever seen.  And her hair!  It took me well over a year to grow that much hair when I first started out.

Thanks for stopping by + giving sweet Baby Reagan some love!

If you like what you just saw + want to book a Fresh 48 (in-hospital) session when your sweet little baby arrives (I’m talking to all of you gorgeous pregnant mamas!), head over to the Contact page and send me a message.  As a busy mama with a full-time job, I’ll only be taking on a limited number of sessions this year.

Hello.

G’day.

It’s been a while since our last chat — a LONG while.

We’ve got some catching up to do!

First things first: Hello, Indiana!  Thanks for welcoming us back to the Midwest after an unforgettable few years in Australia.  Kyle and I are loving our new home in Northwest Indiana and feel like we’re settling into life here as a family of 5.  Yes, you read that right – 5! (us + Lucy + Buster + Baby G)

For those who haven’t kept up with us on Facebook or Instagram, here’s what you missed:

  • I moved back to my hometown for a career-making opportunity
  • Lucy made her 1st (and hopefully only!) international journey
  • We built a house
  • Kyle moved back to Indiana
  • We were expecting our first, but lost sweet Poppy at 23 (gestational) weeks
  • Buster joined the gang up in “The Region”
  • We travelled to CO, back to Australia, KY, NV, and all around Indiana
  • In April, we welcomed Reagan to the family & life has never been better!

In the coming weeks/months, I will be posting a mix of photos from the past (almost) 2 years — wrapping up our time in Oz — as well as more current images, most likely of my kiddo because I just. can’t. get. enough.  Seriously.  I mean, LOOK at those dimples!

I’ll be taking on a limited number of sessions in Indiana, starting this fall.  If you’re keen to update that head shot, capture a “day in the life” with your family, get the *perfect* Christmas card photo or maybe you’re planning a wedding — whatever your reason, shoot me a message!

Thanks for sticking with me along the way, Indiana friends – it’s good to be back!
