Brielle {Newborn}

I drove a total of 4 hours for this newborn photo shoot. Brielle and her family are very special to me. I love when my photography is rooted in love because it means something to me instead of just another thing to do. Thankful for Brielle’s life and the sheer JOY she brings to her family!

“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God – you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration – what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you. The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” – Psalm 139:13-16 (Message)

Sometimes the greatest privilege I have is capturing a portrait of a mom and her newborn baby. Nothing compares to the pure love and joy of it all.


Kadence {Newborn}

Please help me welcome baby Kadence into the world! Her parents are so smitten by her and I love to capture just how much they love her. Kadence’s dad is a police officer and a specific request was a picture of her with his hat and badge. Done and love it!!!TworekFamily_20170828_MPeterson-6 TworekFamily_20170828_MPeterson-2 TworekFamily_20170828_MPeterson-12 20180110_untitled_0002TworekFamily_20170828_MPeterson-5

There is nothing that compares to a love for a newborn. Nothing.
