Baby G with his Daddy & Mommy

This beautiful baby boy reminds me a lot of my son. His gorgeous, blue eyes light up a room, especially when he smiles. Baby G is so inquisitive and sweet. And I know he'll be a charmer when he grows up because he perks up when there are little ladies around!

R&A Got Hitched

Remember R&A?
Well there wedding day finally arrived, and it was spectacular. April in Iowa can be very temperamental. A and I had been in contact throughout the week before the wedding discussing the weather and pictures. Our fingers were crossed and we were saying prayers (it had been fore casted to thunderstorm). The day turned out to be gorgeous, and it was unusually warm. Yah! This was the second Swanson wedding I had the privilege of shooting, and it was just as special as the first. The family and their friends are so nice and daddy's machine shed is one of the best wedding venues! I was stoked when R got out his gear for the pictures, and everyone had their shades ready. And A did a fabulous job on the button bouquets, so unique and perfect for a girl that doesn't like flowers. There was a lot of love put into this wedding and it showed.
It was really cool to end such a fun night with fireworks!
Thank you R&A for letting me be a part of your day. And I'll see you at the same church in September (Ottumwa weddings rock)!

Introducing Baby E

I am having way too much fun with babies lately. This little girl is so sweet. Only a few days old and she's already a diva. I had a lot of fun, and I love the way these turned out. You'll see her soon with her cousin (who should be arriving shortly).
