Belly Portraits On-Location

June 5, 2015 by Kelli Hansen | No Comments

Although we offer studio and outdoor portraits, we also love to work in new and different places!  Maternity portraits can be photographed in a place that’s special to you!

This session was particularly fun for me because the expecting Momma is my niece… Although she lives several states away, we had both travelled to the same place at the same time, and I was able to photograph her pregnancy in her mom’s house and the surrounding outside space!

Delaney – Roseville CA senior portrait

Eric and I had such a great time getting to know this sweet and accomplished high school senior!  We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting than right at home on her family’s property, and we wish her the best on finishing her senior year and heading off to college this fall!

Waiting for Baby – Roseville CA Maternity Photographer

March 4, 2014 by Kelli Hansen | No Comments

I know from experience that pregnancy doesn’t feel glamorous, and most pregnant women avoid letting anyone take their picture.  That’s why it’s always an honor to be able to photograph mothers-to-be!  I love to get the opportunity to show expecting moms how truly beautiful they are! Hands down, that’s the best part of maternity portraits for me!  This mom pulls it off so well, she actually makes it look glamorous!

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!

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.
