Chloe is 1!!

Darling little Chloe is 1! I have taken this little sweetie’s photos since she was in her mama’s tummy :) I am so sad that she’s growing up so fast!

For her one year photos, she decided to bring all of her smiles (and a couple serious faces, too). Lovvvvving ALL of these pics and can’t wait to see her again!

Happy birthday, Chloe! Hope to see you all again soon :)

Mandy and Tim’s Little Chicas

Mandy has been one of my very bestest friends (more like a sister) since I was TEN, which is kind of crazy because Belle is TEN! I so, so, SO hope Belle has as great of BFF’s as I do. <3

Love this family soooo dearly. How adorable are these little darlings…Maya, Macy and Lily.

He’s been coming to see me every three months this year, so I’m very happy to report that he is really getting the Ann Steward Photography modeling look down..

Mr. Grant is 1, too!

My favorite little neighbor, Baby Grant, is no longer a baby. : ( Sadness!!! Like Caroline (see yesterday’s post), Grant has been coming to see me every three months. Grant was one of my first newborn clients, too. : ) I can’t believe he’s already a one-year old!

I’ve loved chatting with his mama every few months and meeting for pics. He is not too much younger than Will, so we always talk about how they will be sneaking out of the house together when they’re in high school to go to pasture parties. Ha! They better not…we will catch them for sure.

This time, we went to his great-grandparents farm for his one-year photos. He even brought his new John Deere wagon!

Their farm has a awesome old schoolhouse that I love to use for seniors, so we thought it would be cute to take Grant there and also do some updated family photos.

He has a lot of expressions, so we are always cracking up at him!

Here is Grant in his Socrates pose:

And, we all know I LOVVVVE LOVE LOVE them all but I’ll end with my very three favorites from the session:

Brittany and Eric, thank you so much for bringing Grant to me for all of his photos over the past twelve months! Hope to see you guys again soon!

Mucho love!
Ann : )

Miss Caroline Turned 1!

Love all of my baby clients! Everyone says time goes by so fast seeing your own little ones grow up and sadly, that is true! It’s also true when you only see certain little bambinos every three months!

Miss Caroline was one of my first babies in the studio last winter for her three months pics and now she recently finished up her baby package! She must have been studying my website because for her one-year photos, she arrived at the studio wanting more serious and grown-up looking pics. More of a Vogue-style this time, she was thinking…I love it. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

But she soon got more smiley for us and decided to be super-sweet happy self:

: ) That bottom one is toooo cuuuute. I love the expression!

I love summer pics. OCCASIONALLY/RARELY/ONCE IN AWHILE, I have the perfect photo with the perfect outfit with the perfect lighting to make me want to use an action or an overlay, and this is one of those times… (More on summer-inspired Photoshop actions later…I’m sooooo long overdue to post something photography-related for my photographer friends on my post-processing).

So sweet <3

Mucho love to you all!! ~ Ann

Reanna, Jason, Addy & Baby Cohen :)

EVERYONE from Finance knows and adores this lovely lady! This is my gorgeous friend, Reanna. Yes, the same one that makes that makes those amazing cakes!

Reanna and her adorable family met Karly (my mucho talented assistant!) and I for a June Limited Edition Mini-Session the same day I shot Jenelle’s photos (posted on the blog yesterday). I absolutely lovvvvve seeing the beyond sweet and beautiful Little Miss Addy for our photo shoots. Such a doll… For the June minis, one option was vintage tea party. Addy was a big fan of the tea cups. : )

Her mom calls her, “Sugar,” and I just think that is soooo cute. Lovvvvve these…

We took some maternity and family photos also, since this was the last time they’d be having their family photos taken with just three of them. : )

Big news! Baby Cohen has since arrived! Many congrats to all of you!! Hope you’re all enjoying snuggling him!! Can’t wait to meet him!!

Thanks soooo much!! xoxo!

Jenelle, Braydon & Easton <3

My super-awesome and hilarious friend, Jenelle, brought her two lovely boys to see me again this summer for a June mini-session! Lovvvve her and lovvvve them MUCHO!

Quad Cities Family Photography

Braydon is always so sweet and does whatever we ask. Easton, being so much younger, needs a little bit of bribing. Since we did photos at the farm last summer, we decided maybe the train tracks would be fun, especially since Easton loves trains. Jenelle and I decided it would be a good idea to tell him Thomas the Train was coming down the tracks to try to get him to smile. It didn’t take him long to figure out we were lying. HA! Hilarious! Love these little guys!

Thanks so much, Jenelle! See you sooooon! xoxo!
