Niehaus Family

This is a family session that we have been excited to shoot for a long time. We have known Seth and Rachel for the better part of ten years now, and we have enjoyed sharing some of life's most special events with them. I remember when Seth and I went Christmas shopping, and he decided to just "pop" in to a jewelry store and came out with Rachel's engagement ring. One of our favorite memories is gathering every Thursday night at their first apartment to watch "Friends". On one of these Thursday nights, Seth came in late from work, and before he even took his coat and shoes off or even said "hello", the words that were splitting his face in a smile came bursting out: "Rachel is pregnant!" We could all see how incredibly happy they were to be starting their family. And a few short months later (probably not as short for Rachel), beautiful Ava Rose was born. Ava has grown into an amazing little girl. She certainly made our job easy. Her flair and adorable attitude pour from every picture. We just love her personality. Cole is the newest addition to the Niehaus family, and he has an equally cute personality. He is only eleven months old, but I am pretty sure he already has it all figured out. One look into his gorgeous blue eyes, and you will know what I mean. If swagger is possible at that age, he has it.
Seth and Rachel, we are so happy that our families get to grow up together. Thanks for always being such supportive and fun friends. We loved doing your portrait session, and we hope you love your pictures.
