Navah + Myka | A Cute Sister Session at the Arboretum in Clinton, Iowa

These adorable little sisters have grown so much since I last saw them at the beginning of 2018! Navah was about the size her little sister is now and Myka was just a baby. Now here they are, so beautiful and grown up. I was so excited to hear they were visiting again all the way from the United Arab Emirates and wanting another photo shoot with me! We met up at the Bickelhaupt Arboretum in Clinton, Iowa, where the greens are vibrant and the flowers are blooming. You’re never at a loss for great spots at this location, it’s one of my favorite places to shoot!

I know mom and grandma were a little worried we didn’t get many usable pictures because the girls were over the whole idea of photos after about ten minutes. But it’s those little moments in-between that make the session a success. This age is always tough for parents (I know from experience)! But when they do smile and laugh, it’s so genuine and wonderful. I promised we got plenty of good shots and I really honestly LOVE the pictures we got from this session! The first ten minutes with these girls was GOLD - seriously some of the best sibling pictures; they’re just too cute!

When Snow is Magic

Being born and raised in Iowa, I'm never super excited about the snow. Especially this year when it lasted through the middle of April! But for a couple of little girls who were visiting from overseas, it was a much different story! Unfortunately it was WAY too cold to drag this family outside the day they were in Clinton for their session. But that didn't stop their little ones from enjoying the beauty of a white covered world through the sliding glass door.

I'll share just a few favorites from their little indoor lifestyle shoot!   


Brunson Family Highlights

What a beautiful family! Seriously, these ladies are all gorgeous, dad is a lucky man! I had so much fun hanging out with the Brunson's and capturing some fond family memories along the way. We even spotted some deer on our adventure through Heritage Canyon. I loved seeing the relationship between the older girls and the instant bonds they developed and shared with their new baby sister. You could tell it had been just the two of them for awhile before baby sis came along, but they had open arms and hearts for the littlest lady in the Brunson clan. But no need to take my word for it, check out some of my favorite shots from their session!
