When I walked into the Schlieman’s home, I was immediately struck by the beautiful pops of color everywhere, the photos framed and hung all over the walls, and the  fun patterns and textures that were sprinkled through their belongings and decorations.  The atmosphere was so comfortable too – I felt like I could take off my shoes, grab a drink from their fridge, and sit down and talk for a while. Rebecca has a way of welcoming you into her home that makes you feel just that – like you are home! It was so sweet to arrive first thing in the morning to capture the whole family : Mom, Dad, big sister Clara, and the newest addition, Lucy. (These girls clearly have Dad smitten.)

It’s always a fun challenge (and a bit nerve-wracking) to photograph another photographer, but I absolutely loved my experience photographing Lucy’s newborn session. Rebecca gave me a tour of her beautiful home, and then released me to do whatever I wanted to do. She made it clear that she was up for anything, and that I had full creative reign in the session. It wasn’t difficult finding beautiful spots to photograph this sweet family, with the natural light filling their home and the fun colors everywhere! It was such a calm, beautiful, fun session for me. And little Lucy? Well, you’ll see for yourself just how tiny and adorable she is!

Rebecca, you are such a beautiful Mom.

I kept saying how much I loved it when Joel held Lucy. She looks so tiny in his big Daddy arms :].

That last image just might be my favorite. Joel and Rebecca, thank you for allowing me to spend time with your sweet family and capture you and your girls!
