Des Moines Newborn Photographer | Nathan + Contest Winner!

Firstly I would like to announce the Christmas Giveaway winner.  There were a lot of awesome entries but I could only choose one.  The winner of the free session + 25% off prints/products is….Amanda Grimes! 🙂  I chose her because she is a huge advocate of my work.  She hands out my business cards and reads my blog almost daily.  Here is what she wrote:

Hey Amanda,
I just read your blog on your website (as I do everyday)! And I just
had to jump at this opportunity!! :) I would love for you to choose me
for this contest because I absolutley LOVE your work, and I still have
a lot of empty space left on my walls waiting to be filled with your
amazing photography!! :) Pictures are so important to me. I feel like
capturing life's moments is such a special way to leave something
behind for others to enjoy! Andy and I are so lucky to have the photos
that you have already taken for us!! Every time I look at them I feel
such joy!! You have such an amazing talent. Your work captures much
more then just the picture. When I look at our wedding photos, that
day comes right back to me as if I was there! I was a little sad that
we didn't have someone video tape our big day. I was afraid I would
forget things. But with our beautiful wedding album, I will never
forget! Thank you for that!!! Even if I am not the lucky winner of this
contest, I am still lucky to have the photos I do! And we will always
choose you as our photographer! And I will never stop telling people
about you and your AMAZING work!!

So, Amanda, you may use your free session for any type of session you would like. :)  Congrats!!

Now here are the remaining photos from the awesome newborn session the other day.  This little guy was just absolutely adorable.  His skin was perfect and he had so much hair!  He was the sweetest little guy too, he hardly woke up at all!  LOVE him!

Have to re-post this photo of course!

I so love when I capture a smile in newborns!


His mama wanted to add the greenery in this photo.  I like it!
