Amanda Utz Photography » Best Photographer in central Iowa

Today is a very special day in our house. Our Jonny Baby is now ONE! To document this milestone Jonathan had his own special session with Mommy in the studio. He was not exactly interested in sitting still for photos! He is a very busy baby, and does not have time for such things. Luckily, Daddy had the day off to help me keep bringing him back onto his Winter ONEderland backdrop. I had to be quick, and somehow we managed to get some keepers. To end the session we gave Jonny his very own cake to smash! In typical Utz child fashion there wasn’t much smashing, but he is the first to actually get a little messy without Daddy’s help. We are so excited to spend the day with family celebrating our big boy. Happy 1st Birthday Jonny!

It seems like just yesterday I got to snuggle London for her newborn session, but somehow she is now old enough for my Back to School Mini special!  How did this happen?!  London is really looking forward to preschool.  She hopes to draw dinosaurs and make dinosaurs out of play-doh.  I hope she has a great year of school and gets to make lots of dinosaurs!  Here is a preview of her session followed by a throwback to her newborn session…

Here are some of my favorites from this handsome little one’s session. When Tysen came to visit me in the studio he was 6 days old. He was such a sweet sleepy baby.  It was a pleasure to photograph him and his family!

My fall is booking quickly! Before I run out of openings I wanted to be sure to set a date for Fall Mini Sessions! These will go quickly as I only have a limited number of slots. Fall Minis will take place October 8th with a rain date of October 9th. A $25 non-refundable retainer is required to reserve your session, which will be applied to the total cost of the session. The location is yet to be determined, but will either be Quarry Springs Park or Thomas Mitchell Park. I will wait until closer to the date to see which one will offer the best lighting and fall colors! If you are wanting a full session this fall be sure to book now, as I only have 3 more openings in Sept/October. I am looking forward to beautiful fall photos! **Update as of 9/6 only 2 spots remain at 4:15pm and 4:45pm**PINIMAGE

This was such a fun session. Mom sent me a message a year ago asking if I could do a fairy session with her girls “next summer”. Then SURPRISE! Summer is here and her fairy session turned into a maternity session as well! Little one will be making his or her arrival any day now, what a lucky baby to be joining such a wonderful family!
