Fiora is 1! (Nebraska Baby + Family Photographer)

Oh my, where has the time gone? Our Fi is one and already driving!!! ;-)

We are so proud of our niece and love watching her grow up...and I LOVE being able to photograph this family. Seriously, so cute!

We had to maneuver around some tricky light and a not-so-happy Fi, but I think we got some great shots.

I couldn't get over the look on her face in this next one....  :-)

We all love you so much, Fiora. Happy Birthday!

My Boy is 8 Months! (Nebraska Baby + Child Photographer)

I have been an editing maniac lately but so thankful for each and every client that chooses me as their photographer. This profession keeps me sane outside of my little world of wife and mommy, but so grateful for it all!

I had a few spare minutes today to go through Holden's 8 month photos. He has changed so much lately; crawling all over, developing his personality little by little, and becoming such a cuddle bug.

And now, presenting the cutest baby alive.....sorry, but he is ;-)

Six Month Beauty (Nebraska + South Dakota Baby Photographer)

I say it every time I'm around her...."so weird to be around such girlyness!" My little guy is all boy, and I love him to pieces but there's a part of me that yearns for a little girl now and then. Hopefully someday. But for now, I'm quite content soaking up Miss Fi's long, gorgeous eyelashes, sweet baby girl talk, and the way she points those toes....I love it all!

I got this outfit for her :-)

Does she not have the most stunning blue eyes?!?!?! This is practically straight out of my camera with very little editing done on her eyes...they're naturally gorgeous!

She had enough of my camera for one day ;-)

Baby Love (Merriman, Nebraska + South Dakota Newborn Photographer)

My niece, Fiora Copper Moreland is here!!!! She is perfect and has her entire family wrapped around her little finger! She made me so proud by being a perfect newborn model for our shoot yesterday. There were no meltdowns, and she just loved all the camera attention :-)

One thing I love about newborns are their many faces....

This next one I picture her saying, "Why yes, here's another adorable pose Aunt Chelsie." :-)

This one isn't perfectly composed, but I couldn't leave it out...she seems to make this face quite often ;-)

Eventually, she fell into a peaceful sleep.

Those gorgeous lips up close...

Is she not the most beautiful little one you've ever seen?! I'm not bias or anything ;-)

Louie is One! (Hay Springs, Nebraska Family + Child Photographer)

I have been following this little guy around for the past year, and it's been nothing but fun! His parents chose to do the "First Year" package with me as it's the most cost effective and beneficial way of capturing the early memories of your child's life.

Last year as a newborn

4 months

8 months

And now a year old, and walking (or should I say running) all over the place!

I chased this little guy all over the park! He was fascinated by everything and had the cutest expressions.

We can't forget about mom and dad...they are so fun together and make the cutest little family :-)

One last photo to get us all in the mood for Halloween! Everyone have a fun and safe weekend!

Sweet Little Man (Merriman, NE Family + Baby Photographer)

I've been looking forward to this session for the last 4 months! I shot this little guy's newborn pictures in October and he is turning into a handsome young man very quickly. The good news is that I'll be seeing lots of  Louie (cutest name ever!) for awhile as this family is doing my "First Year Plan." If you'd like more information on this, please contact me at  Now, onto the cuteness...

Louie's favorite place was to be high above his parents....he just laughed away!

This little pouty face is just darling :-)

Grandma was able to make it for a few quick shots!

Mom wanted a picture with this sheriff's hat....I think he pulls it off mighty fine :-)
