Oliver's birth story

Welcome to the world Oliver Roger Kirkwood!

I am in LOVE with birth photography.  It is down right amazing.  

I arrived at St. John's hospital around 12:30pm June 6th 2014.  Oliver was born at 3:02pm.  Those few short hours flew by as I quietly stood in a corner behind the scenes, capturing every little moment of this amazing birth story.  Birth Photography is candid, unscripted, and unposed.  It is witnessing something that will never happen again and capturing those moments forever.  I am honored to have been able to photograph this event and so incredibly excited to do it again in the near future.  Congrats Kirkwood family!

Reagan lifestyle newborn I photographed this little beauty about a month ago.  We were able to capture her in her own home for a fantastic lifestyle session.  It is not always easy getting older siblings to sit and pose for any sibling shots but these guys did fantastic!  Welcome to the world Reagan!

Cole Oh this little guy was so precious!   I was able to photograph his beautiful mama during her pregnancy and was so excited to capture Cole's newborn shots.  He rocked his session sleeping soundly through all of our poses.   Welcome to the world baby Cole!

Ethan I met up with this little guy and his family at the Guthrie.  This horrible spring weather is forcing us to move all sessions indoors-not always fun for the little ones who want to only run, run, run!   Ethan was a trooper as we all tried our best to work out some smiles and giggles from a determined little guy who not give up his dreaded pacifier.  In the end we were all sweating but it was well worth it for a few little smiles from this adorable little guy.  Happy birthday Ethan.  I had a blast chasing you through those Guthrie hallways!

Cake smash cutie Miss Anna just celebrated her first birthday.  We went to town with cake, backdrops, more cake and more backdrops!  Love it when they just sit and smile!  What a fun session with this beautiful little lady.

Max & Bennett I met up with these adorable little guys a few weeks back.  Max just turned four and Bennett 4 months.  Max pulled out all his grins and was a great trooper waiting patiently as we tried our best to get little Bennett to flash us his grin.  The best part of this session is I found out this family lives in my neighborhood!  Can't wait to see you guys soon at the park!

Emily Miss Emily came into the studio a few weeks back for her first birthday cake smash.  Poor little one was having an off day and just not feeling "photo" happy.  Happens to the best of us.  Once we pulled out the cake she flashed us some smiles.  Funny how those little ones know just how to get what they want!  Happy Birthday Emily.  I love watching you and your sister grow into beautiful little ladies.

Rees Rees was 10 days old when he came into the studio.  I photographed big brother Graeme's newborn session just under two years ago. The two look very similar with those adorable chubby cheeks!  Graeme came along for the newborn session and dished out some sweet brotherly hugs & kisses.  I am sure these two will be the best of friends growing up!  I love that I can capture families as they grow.

Miss Mara I met up with sweet little Mara a fews ago.  Miss Mara is now 6 months old and full of smiles.  Big sister Gwen was a great little helper giving her little sis lots of cuddles and tickles.  Great to see you E family!

Reg and George make the blog Last weekend I photographed a very good friend and her adorable little boys.  We hit up an old abandoned barn at the end of our session.  The barn is absolutely gorgeous but unfortunately is going to be torn down so my sessions at this perfect spot are soon to be coming to an end.  The boys did fantastic and I love the barn shots.  Now if only I could somehow buy this barn and transport it to my folks property.
