Baby Parker is 3 Months!

Awwww…this little punkin is three months and just as sweeeeet as can be! He was such a doll during our session…even when we made him model the John Deere boots! :) Both of Parker’s parents work at Deere so we convinced him it was a good idea. ;)

Here are some of my favorites from Parker’s session:

Mr. Grant’s 18 Month Photos!

Happy Thursday! I am sure everyone is looking forward to the weekend! Only one more day, y’all!

I thought I would share some of my favorite photos from my favvve neighbor’s eighteen month photo session.

I have done this little sweetie’s photos since he was a newborn. Love him! He’s getting to be such a big boy now with such a little personality. How cute is he in his little jean jacket…omg!!

Baby Evan!!

Love seeing all of these little babies lately!! :)

Here is Baby Evan…HOW CUTE IS HE??!! His mama, Jenny, is a friend of mine from high school. We used to ROCK the flute section at West High. ;) I am positive the flutes have never been quite as cool since we graduated (circa ’96).

It was so great seeing her and her new little guy and meeting her husband, Luke!

Here are some of my favorites from Mr. Evan’s first session. What a sweetheart, omigosh…

Meet Lennon <3

OMG. Who doesn’t just ADORE the name Lennon!?!? Seriously! This little cutie visited me for his seven-week photos :) Such a doll baby! He’s only a week apart from Eleanor. I think next time he visits, they will have to have a little meet & greet! <3 How cute will that be?!

Baby Lennon’s parents, Evan and Kelly (love them!), own Tapas Yoga Shala in Rock Island. If you’ve ever thought of doing yoga, please go. Sunday class is not yoga for the faint of heart…haha. It’s the kind where you’re limping out of the place after the hardest workout EVVVVER. I used to go all the time before the whole pregnancy situation. :) I am looking forward to going back. #returnofthebam

If you think you need toned EVERYTHING by swimsuit season, you should try Ashtanga Sunday class. For reals. They have tons of other classes too at all different levels, so check them out.

Back to the bambino… I had so much fun photographing sweet little Lennon. Hope to see you guys again SOON!! xo!

Much love,
Ann

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!

Many thanks to Renee and Doug, Chloe’s awesome parents, for bringing her to the new studio. It was so great to see all of you.

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

Hot Scoop

It’s true, y’all. Ann Steward Photography now has a REAL studio. *Sigh* And it’s so beautiful.

Thank you times ONE MILLION to my awesome husband (who has worked his tail off on this project), in-laws, several amazing friends and some rockin’ companies Kurt hired, it’s almost done. I wanted to take some photos before we put all of the furniture in and it gets filled with all of my backdrops, props, soft boxes and stands.

OMG so in love…

Sorry about the bathroom photo. I just love the purple so much I couldn’t resist. And many apologies about the no editing and bad text layers and writing. I HATE vignettes but then lens I used has a natural vignetting and like I mentioned, I didn’t edit these so it’s still in there (argh!).

You might be thinking, “OMG, Ann, you have the greatest taste EVER in paint, lighting and rugs. Everything matches so great.” All of the credit for that goes to the super-creative and rockstar decorator, Mrs. Stephanie Rudd. She helped us immensely and I can’t thank her enough. I’ll be posting ALL of the vendor information just as soon as the studio is decorated and done. :) Everyone did such a fabulous job so I want to give them props on the blog!! :)

Looking forward to seeing Miss Chloe and Miss Teagan for my first two studio shoots in the new studio NEXT WEEKEND!

In the meantime, much love to all. Have a great weekend!

xoxo,
Ann

My Friend, Chloe <3

Look at this little SWEEEEEEET PEA! I have been seeing this little darling since she was a newborn. Actually, before that since I did her mama’s maternity photos last fall, too!

Love seeing her every few months. Here are some of my favorites from her nine month photo shoot!

I like a girl who takes her modeling seriously…like Chloe!! She always comes prepared with various Vogue-ish expressions…

Since Chloe, like Will, has a winter birthday, we decided to do Christmas dress photos outside since we know for sure her one-year photos will be in the studio. Loving this dress. Love love love love love.

As you can tell, her little fall outfit was making me feel a little bit of vintage :) Love that vest/dress/boots combination! Thanks for coming to the farm to see us!

Hope everyone is having fun with their holiday shopping!

Ann
