It's a slam dunk into being a family of 4!

Updated: Sep 3, 2019

If first meet Brandi and Mr. Bennett during my valentine minis and instantly felt like they were family! Both farm kids, Brandi and I instantly clicked. So when she spilled a little secret to me that they were expanding their bunch, I jumped (literally) for joy! When they all arrived at my studio for the maternity session, I knew that it was going to be so much fun and that the sky was the limit with my ideas (stay tuned, dad and I cooked up a good one)......



Mr Bennett was quite excited about his baby in moms belly and you could just tell that he was going to rock this big brother thing. We headed outdoors to do a couple more family pix before B was sent off with Grandma!

And as promised, dad and I schemed up something pretty epic (even though later at the newborn shoot he told me he sprained his ankle on this........)


I still remember getting the text that their new addition had arrived, so up to the hospital I went! I love doing fresh 48 sessions, and it is something that I now include as part of my newborn package (if parents want me to come visit). They are short and sweet little 20-30 minute sessions that we get some pictures of the new arrival within the first 48 hours of life!


I was super excited to have this family come into the studio for Mr. Brekken's newborn session! I teamed up with an amazing prop shop from a local ND gal (she lives in Vegas now, so shout out to Dakota Prop Shop) you can find her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/376970549441313/ for more cool stuff! Knowing that dad's a huge basketball fan, I knew I had to bring in some sports colors. So welcome to the world Mr. Brekken, I can't wait to see what you conquer in the world!
