Iowa Family Photos Natural and Relaxed Twin Newborn Photos

This family. Gosh, I say this over and over again, but the feeling is just so overwhelming. I love newborn sessions. I love weddings, too. They say for good business you gotta pick one, specialize…niche your business. In the midst of this session, Marina (beautiful mama up there) asked me, So do you only do newborns? And it dawned on me. My business isn’t about picking one milestone to document in people’s lives, but its about how that milestone is being captured. I love emotion, connection, intimacy. I photograph people that want to document not only the handmade decorations, the tiny toes, BUT also

…the way a husband looks at his wife when she becomes a mother.

…the way you play “where’d that nose come from” when staring at your beautiful baby’s face for the upteenth hour.

…the way your beloved family dog is trying to make sense of these two interesting creatures that just came home!

These sweet babies and their loving family are just so perfect. Enjoy!

Cool as a cucumber. That is how these folks rolled on their wedding day. I wish I could say I had as much grace as them! Its because they knew.

They knew this marriage was right.

They knew their family and friends would take care of what needed to get done.

They knew what it was all about.

They knew spending time with those they loved was most important.

And…well they know good food- who doesn’t love Jimmy Jacks for wedding catering?!?

Kristina & Pat’s wedding was SO much fun and filled with love and joy. Enjoy a bit of the day in digital and film (Fuji 400h // 35mm // Richard Photo Lab)

Sunset Portraits Iowa City Wedding Photos

Let me just say I am ridiculously excited to be sharing these images with you. Katie and Tim are part of a small, yet mighty group of friends that help us call Iowa City home. These two tied the knot in a very intimate backyard wedding. They wanted to share the celebration with a larger group of friends and family at Iowa City’s Old Brick. Please enjoy a few sweet images from their beautiful and joy-filled vow renewal.  Ceremony and Reception Photos Old Brick Iowa Ceremony and Reception Photos Old Brick Iowa Ceremony and Reception Photos Old Brick Iowa Ceremony and Reception Photos Old Brick Iowa Ceremony and Reception Photos Old Brick Iowa Iowa City Wedding Photography Iowa City Wedding Photography Coralville Vow Renewal Photography Iowa City Wedding Photography Iowa City Wedding Photography Coralville Vow Renewal Photography Intimate and Romantic Iowa City Wedding Coralville Vow Renewal Photography Intimate and Romantic Iowa City Wedding Iowa City Wedding Photography Iowa City Wedding Photography Intimate and Romantic Iowa City Wedding Intimate and Romantic Iowa City Wedding Sunset Portraits Iowa City Wedding Photos Iowa City Wedding Photography Sunset Portraits Iowa City Wedding Photos Iowa City Wedding Photography Iowa City Wedding Photography

These images were a fun experiment. Stay with me here…

I shot BW Film (Ilford HP5 – 400 speed) at ISO 800 with a 430 exii flash pointing straight up.

I sent off to the ever amazing Richard Photo Lab where they pulled the film 1 stop. This is pure straight out of camera goodness.

No digital corrections, just basic sizing and a touch of web sharpening!

I’m sorta in love.

Iowa Lifestyle Family Photos, Coralville Children Photography | Emma & Hayden are a BLAST!June 2, 2014

Family Photography with Twins

So its no secret that I have a new-found appreciation and love for TWINS! But that doesn’t even begin to explain why this session is so special to me.

1. Alex came along to practice his second shooting/associate photographer skills. There’s a few of his images in this post! It was awesome to be able to photograph a family while spending time with my husband.

2. Alindsey (super awesome mom) told me “Your photos have so much JOY!” That literally melted my heart. My goal is to provide people with images that are not only high quality, but also that provoke emotions and bring back positive memories of a special time or moment in their lives.

3. This family is down for ANYTHING! It starts pouring, go dance in the rain! You get mud on you- whatever, life is a bit messy and muddy sometimes.

Literally feel the joy in these images :)
