Last week was mother’s day, I’d like to take the time to honor a very special mother: Rhiannon Lindley. Rhiannon is one of the bravest, sweetest and strongest women I know; she’s amazing.
Rhiannon and her husband have four beautiful children ranging in ages from 5 to just a few months; the couple is also the primary caregiver for her brother.
Rhiannon recently completed nursing school not an easy task for anyone, but she was also pregnant at the time! The family has experienced a lot of challenges and struggles in the past few years, including her husband losing his job, they had a house fire, and, perhaps most devastating Rhiannon was diagnosed with Acute b Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
I was honored to photograph this beautiful family in this special session.
I hope you’ll take the time to read more about Rhiannon Lindley’s story and consider giving to her GoFundMe page.
Oh, sweet Emily! How gorgeous are you in that stunning orchid pink? Emily’s mom requested pinks and florals, and Little Mother Photography was delighted to play with the beautiful color spectrum, perfect for spring!
Emily was sweet and sleepy for her session (which is perfect for newborn photos!), but her personality still managed to show through. What an amazing little girl.
Emily’s mom, Jessica visited us for her maternity session a few months ago. It’s easy to see where Emily gets her good looks from! This maternity session was one of my favorites of all time.
Cooper’s mom, Tonya, and I go way back; before kids, husbands, or college. Tonya is one of the bravest, most beautiful people I know (inside and out!), and I am so HONORED to be a part of her baby story.
We photographed Tonya’s pregnancy with Cooper’s older brother, Gregory, as well as his first year. Now, it was Cooper’s turn. First: the announcement! Little Mother Photography was so excited to be able to help the couple share their BIG news!
In Tonya’s third trimester we captured some absolutely BREATHTAKING maternity images. Tonya looks like an absolute GODDESS.
And how sweet is this moment between Gregory and his mama? That little Mohawk, giving Eskimo kisses…perfection.
And finally, when Cooper came into the world I was so excited to take his newborn photos. His session was designed to work with the colors used in his big brother’s sessions. We LOVE when clients work with us with the end goal of printing and hanging our work! The greys and blues of Cooper’s set will look wonderful displayed next to Gregory’s.
Cooper was a perfect gentleman for his session, and slept like a rock (a newborn photographer’s DREAM model!) Mom and Cooper took a nursing break, where he ate like a champ, then went right back to sleep. The little guy did not go to the bathroom on set once. Another local photographer from Missouri University of Science and Technology came to observe the session; what a treat for him to watch such a wonderful, cooperative baby!
We’ve been with Cooper from announcements, gender reveal, maternity and now newborn! I love watching my friends grow and their lives change. It’s even better when I get to be a part of their story, documenting it for them.
Little Mother Photography was live on location this week!
I was blessed to be welcomed into little Victoria’s home for these stunning shots! This hybrid of lifestyle and posed newborn session turned out amazing.
How proud (and gorgeous?!) are this new mother and father? It was such a joy to work in such a stunning nursery, lovely home, and beautiful family.
What could make this photoshoot even more perfect? Puppies! This pair seems to be adjusting to older sibling life quite comfortably.
Little Mother Photography is always happy to come to your home or shoot on location. When our clients are comfortable we are able to get the most amazing natural images. Interested in scheduling Little Mother Photography for a home lifestyle session? Contact us today!
Happy Monday! I’ve been so wonderfully busy and am excited to share some images from last week with you! This BEAUTIFUL little girl in purple is Jolene from Rolla.
Not only was Jolene was an absolute doll and delightful to work with, but her siblings were too! Check out these cuties. They are so proud of their little baby sister.
Little Mother Photography shops the globe to find the BEST accessories for our photoshoots. We really are a one-stop shop for outfits, accessories, headbands, hats, blankets, wraps. For Jolene’s photos the bonnet was from Riley’s Mom Makes Hats, the tie backs were purchased from The Dainty Miss, the fabrics she is laying on are from Freebird Props, and the gorgeous lace is from Namiko.
I just can't get enough of this precious little girl! Check out more images from her gallery below.
