Tutu Cute!

September 12, 2011 by Kelli Hansen | 2 Comments

This little cutie Kieran hammed it up for her 8 month baby portrait!  She was beyond cute in our pink tutu and headband… Even though 8 months isn’t one of those “standard ages” that babies typically get portraits, it is one of my personal favorite baby ages to photograph.  At this age babies sit well, are willing to share a wide range of expressions, and aren’t so mobile that they try to make a run for it!  What a perfect age for timeless baby photography!

Wyatt may be the sweetest, calmest, well mannered 2 year old we’ve ever met!  Lucky us…we’ve had the pleasure of creating photographs of Wyatt and his family since he was a newborn.  We have really enjoyed watching him grow and hope to remain his family’s official photographer for many years so we can continue to watch him change and develop!

Hello Diego – Maternity and Baby Photography

August 22, 2011 by Kelli Hansen | No Comments


Now that we’ve had a chance to settle in with our own little one, we are excited to catch up on blogging some of our favorite sessions from the last few months.

We really enjoyed working with this family to document this life-changing time with our Pair session for Maternity and Newborn photography.   Mom was such an amazing pregnancy model….so gorgeous!  When we finally got to meet little (big!) Diego, I completely fell in love with his chunky rolls and intense personality.  It’s like he’s trying to tell us, “Life is serious business!”  And I say, “seriously cute that is!”

We hope you enjoy this beautiful family as much as we did!

Our Newest Addition!

July 2, 2011 by Kelli Hansen | 6 Comments


We are feeling incredibly blessed to have added our daughter Merit Kathryn to our family on April 11, 2011.  She is a joy!  She has such an easy going temperament and just exudes sweetness.  Cannon is an amazing big brother and has adjusted surprisingly well considering he’s been the absolute center of attention for the last five years!  We are so happy to be able to share some (okay, a bunch!) of our favorite images of Merit and our family from our own Maternity and Newborn Sessions!

Welcome Little Ellison

February 28, 2011 by Kelli Hansen | No Comments

I was grateful for the chance to photograph this adorable little guy who happened to be born on my birthday!  He is such a sweet boy!  We know he will be well loved by his family, who we have had the pleasure of working with twice before…..when mom and dad were expecting big sister, and just after she was born.  It is always a joy for us to see families as they grow and change, and we are so happy for this family as they celebrate their new addition!

Brace yourself for serious cuteness!

February 16, 2011 by Kelli Hansen | No Comments


Meet Reese.  At only 6 months old she’s already a natural model.  She’s one of the cutest, most easy going, happiest babies ever!  With all the amazing fashions chosen by mom, and all of the amazing expressions encouraged by dad, we pretty much couldn’t miss!

I have been honored to photograph this family throughout its growth….. Mom and Dad’s wedding and again when Reese was a newborn.  It’s always a pleasure to work with such nice people.  It was great to see at how much personality little Reese has already!  I so enjoyed photographing her and am already looking forward to seeing her again at her First Birthday Session!

My Baby Boy is 5….

January 21, 2011 by Kelli Hansen | 3 Comments

Hansens' Photography

How did that happen?  My sweet little baby boy is officially a big boy.  I’m not sure why, but FIVE seems like such a monumental milestone.  All if a sudden he seems so much older than four and a half!  This is the year he will start Kindergarten, make new friends that are his choice instead of mine,  maybe start losing baby teeth (he’s hoping), and move out of the toddler size clothes.  His hands are not so pudgy anymore, he’s more into battle play than snuggling, and he knows what he thinks and how to express it.  As hard as it is to say goodbye to his preschool years, I am so amazed and impressed with the child he is becoming.

Being a sentimental momma, I tend to look to the past, think of him as my baby (I’m sure he’ll always be that to me) and resist letting go of these early years.  However, for this transitional year I promise myself to also look forward with joy to all the new phases of his childhood that he is entering into, and not spend so much time looking back that I miss out on the wonder of who he is right now, especially since that changes a little every day.

For right now, he is an amazing mixture of the innocence of childhood and the insight of maturity.  He sees the little things that in my daily rush I would miss entirely.  He believes that all creatures are his friends, that even toys have feelings, and that I’m the best mommy ever.  His biggest dream is to be a dad.   He cries at the sad parts in stories, refuses to watch movie scenes that feature villains, and threatens to kick the butt of anyone who is mean to anyone.

Some of his recent insights include:

“I like what I like and I hate what I hate.”

“I can’t stop growing or I’ll never be a dad.”

“Even not perfect is still a lot of work!”

He is the sunshine in my heart.

I would choose him as my friend.

My Cannon, 5 years old.
