The Leidinger Family Session and cake smash! (Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Iowa)

Seriously I can’t tell you how much I love and adore this family! I went to high school with Mariah so when she had her baby Callie I got to do my first newborn session with them! I was so elated when I got to see them again to do their family pics plus Callie’s one year pictures. She is as Sweet as can be and has some serious love for mama!

Enjoy!! xoxoxo

Life in Loud Week 12 (Downtown Iowa City)

The other day Aiden has a day off kindergarten so we took the opportunity to go downtown and have a fun time. We went to the Museum of Natural History downtown on the University campus. One of my favorite places to go. I have been going there since I was little so it is so neat to share the experience with my kiddos. Oh and did I mention it’s FREE?!

After enjoying some time at the museum we popped over to Molly’s Cupcakes for a sweet treat to end the day!

Here is my Life in Loud image this week and some others πŸ™‚

Back to School (themed session, Iowa City, Iowa)

My little guy Aiden started Kindergarten this Fall and my bestie Michele’s little gal Layla was starting as well. Well of course we had to do something awesome together to celebrate this time in our littles lives. So I put together this cute little setup and we all got together to take some pics. Of course the younger siblings had to get in on the action!

Yes this is way late, but better late than never! Enjoy!! xoxoxo

Life in Loud (week 11, On the Road)

This past weekend I spent about 12 hours in the car going across Iowa and right across the border to Missouri.

I have been very interested lately in finding the beauty in every day things, abandoned items, fields, buildings, old signs. My goal was to actually take pictures without people. I have become so accustomed to taking photos of people, thinking of their expression, the composition etc.. This weekend I just wanted my camera to guide me and I enjoy the results.

Plus my kiddos were pretty pumped I wasn’t aiming the camera at them. πŸ˜‰
