Decker | Family Session

This is one of my favorite family sessions ever & I love that it’s of my sweet friend Megan & her precious family! Megan & I have been friends for several years- we met online in a photographers facebook group! Since then we’ve done each others photos for the years & I just love her heart & look up to her in SO many ways!

One of the things I LOVE to do for my family’s is to make their session as unique & as “THEM” as possible. I want them to look at their photos from our time together & say “Yes, this is us.” That’s why I strive hard & work to choose carefully the locations I do for photos & get to know each client even before we meet! Megan wanted photos at their family farm & I loved (she did too!) what we got!

Davis | Family Session

I just LOVE IT when I get to photograph families with “older” kids 😉 Especially ones that are so fun to be with & ready for my corny jokes! Plus, you might recognize one of these beautiful young ladies since I photographed her senior pictures a few falls ago. This entire family is beautiful & I loved our time together!

Kathleen | Headshots

This is a very dear friend of mine. She & her family live in Indonesia & they spent this past year spending time in the states again. We were practically neighbors as they lived less then 5 minutes from us for about a year! We did several photo session swaps as she’s one talented photographer herself! She did our newborn pictures when Ruth was born which are just treasures to me. Isn’t it cool how the Lord worked it out for her to be in the states the year our Ruth was born & we’d need newborn photos?

One evening she & I hungout & did pictures of each other together & I wanted to share a few of my favorites of her! Headshot Sessions are perfect for a creative who is launching or even rebranding their work. A church that needs to staff team pictures. A mom that is wanting to have images for her own side business of selling crafts or essential oils! You name it! If you have any questions about if this session is best for what you need, email me at naomi@naomielizabethphotography.com!

Now here are some of my favorites of Kathleen 🙂

Amelia Turns One!

This sweet girl turned one & I was so honored to take her one year pictures as I’ve done her parents proposal pictures & her mom is a very, very, very, very close friend of mine.

Amelia is a January baby & I know that sometimes parents think that good pictures can’t happen indoors (let’s be honest it is a bit tooooo cold to go outside for pictures in January!) BUT I assured them we would get some awesome pictures at their house & we did! For doing indoor pictures, windows & a good solid, clear wall is what you need. 90% of these pictures were taken in a small spot in the master bedroom. I love all these & how Amelia’s personality just shines through!

Adelle | Newborn Session

I’ve known this family for years now & have gotten to photograph them several times! When they asked me to come take pictures of their FIRST daughter I was thrilled! I love the pictures of this sweet girl & have to say a personal favorite is the one with the guys 😉 Yes, you read that right. You’ll know it when you see it 😉

Weeks | Family Session

This family. So much love for them. For so many reasons. This particular session we had weather AND sickness AND technical difficulties but we still got one of my favorite family photos ever to date! See if you can spot it- hint, there’s a black wall in the background of it 😉

Waterstradt | Newborn Session

This little guy was so precious & even smiling in his session! His mommy has wonderful taste when it comes to decor & I loved being in their sweet home! Also, this blog post contains one of my favorite daddy & newborn son pictures so make sure you scroll down for that one! 🙂

Ulrich | Group Family Session

I know you can see it on their faces- we had SOOO much fun doing these pictures! It was a chilly one AND my last session before I started my maternity leave before having Ruth. But we had so much fun guys. I had hungout with Kayla & her immediate 4 right when their little guy Gunner was just a few weeks old. You can view that session HERE. So I was SUPER thrilled when she invited me along to take pictures of her husband’s side! We met at a beautiful local park & I just love some of the more in-between moments that were captured. And of course, the highlight was at the end when the fam broke out into their Bears gear! 😉 Enjoy viewing friends!

 

Harrison | Newborn Session

This is a special session to share, even though it’s over a year after it happened that I’m posting it! Little Harrison was born just 4 days after our daughter Ruth. Elyse & I shared the same pregnancy journey & were able to pray for each other & give encouragement on those days we really needed it. Plus, the Fishel Family is special to our family as we have a little supper club with them & third family.

Even though a lot has already changed since this session (ie they recently moved into a house & Harrison is one now!) the love the Fishel’s share is REAL & has not changed. I love the pride that Chuck has in his face looking at his son in these pictures. The giggles that precious big sister has & Elyse’s happy momma glow.

I remember the session I had with the Fishel’s & Elyse & Chuck shared with me that they were pregnant (you can view that HERE) & even back to when we did big sister’s newborn session (view HERE).

I can’t believe our babies are now over one & that so much has happened since the day we both told each other we were expecting. The Lord is faithful & His faithfulness is all over these photos!
