The Newquist Family | Quad Cities Wedding and Family Photographer

Anytime a new family contacts me for photos I'm pretty much over the moon. Getting to learn what makes them laugh, what makes them happy, where they are ticklish, what their favorite toys and activities are- I just get so excited to meet a new family! AND I absolutely love getting to be around families when all they have to do is love on each other. 

PLUS, it's an easy way to my heart when the family is a new little family of three with a little girl only a few months older than my little guy. Watching her play and toddle around and chat to everyone- I just can't believe my little Charlie will be as old as Claire in a matter of, like, months. 

PLUS, PLUS, I love seeing the way a new baby brings a mom and dad closer together. How much more in love they seem now that they have a mini-them. This little trio- no different. Mom and dad totally crazy for each other and over the moon about their baby girl and their little bitty Claire crazy about them in return. 

As usual, I edited way too many images and what you are seeing here is truly the sneak peek. It's only about a third of their final images! All self control just goes out the window when I see so much adorableness.

I loved spending the evening with them and hope you enjoy their session as much as I did!! 

Lead(h)er QC | Quad Cities Wedding and Headshot Photographer

So, if you're a woman in the Quad Cities, are a business professional of any kind and have NOT heard about Lead(h)er QC, I highly recommend you check them out! It's a mentoring organization aimed at pairing a mentor with a mentee to work together to become better business professionals and stronger women! The organization is coming up on a year of doing business and has successfully matched almost 100 pairs! They decided a couple months ago to revamp their website and hired the ever-so-talented Heather White. Heather recommended to them to hire a photographer who could really personalize their website for them! I was of course honored when she contacted me! 

They were after a pretty specific look for the site in terms of the edit which was a fun challenge for me! Those images are laid out below the headshots of the board. The board decided that having cohesive headshots would look more professional than the random assortment that was being used. Below are the headshots! To see them in action or to learn more about Lead(h)er and how you can get involved, check out their website:

Thanks, Lead(h)er QC team! Keep changing the world!
