Photography Info

Hi all!

As some of you know, we have cut back quite a bit on sessions from when we first started the biz in 2009. Every year, we cut back even more than the year before. After chatting, we have made a tough decision and decided to take a break from the photography business. We are no longer taking any more sessions starting in 2015. We will still photograph sessions already booked, if you have already been in contact with us about a session, any baby steps packages we have already committed to, and weddings already on our calendars.

As most of you know, one of us has 4 kids (Cecilia) and the other has 3 kids (Niña). We are stay at home mommies & wives and as much as we LOVE Niña.Cecilia {creative spark} (photographing, editing, meeting awesome people), we really need to focus on our main priority…our kids & family time. As they say, they’re only young once, and goodness, they grow up TOO FAST! We sure had a fabulous 5 years! We worked hard to make this business where it is today, and we are SO proud that we have accomplished what we wanted plus more! It’ll be a ‘see you later’ and maybe we’ll be back in 5-6 years when the kids are all in school?! We will still be taking plenty of photos of our kiddos so you’ll still get to see images from us! With some extra time, we hope to blog helpful tips for you mommies/daddies with cameras and amateur/professional photographers and blog personal posts! Let us know if there’s anything specific you want to see!

If you want us to recommend photographers to you, please email us! There are lots of talented photogs out there! If you are a photographer yourself in the Pella, Des Moines, Dubuque, Blaine areas, email us and we will add you onto our list of photogs we recommend.

Thanks so much for all our supporters & clients!

Niña and Cecilia

  • Betsy Pratt - Hello,

    Would please send me a list of recommended photographers in the DM area?

    Good luck to you and beat wishes!

    Thank you-

  • Stacie Behrens - Cecilia, I recently chatted with you on Facebook about photography and such. If you could put me on your recommended list of photographers I would appreciate it! One thing, like you and your sister, I have 3 children of my own so I made the decision last year to not photograph weddings. I mainly do baby, family, engagement and senior photos. Takes off some of the pressure! LOL! Thanks for your support – am anxious to see you out there again someday – you both do marvelous work and are quite an inspiration to others (like myself)! 😉

  • mira - May I have a list for DSM area photographers? I’m looking for sessions for growing baby, family.

  • Becca Steenhoek - Hi! My name is Becca and I am married to Brian Steenhoek who was a year younger than you in school at Pella. You girls are gorgeous and have beautiful families! We are looking for a photographer in the Des Moines area to take family photos for us soon and I’m struggling to find someone. Do you have any recommendations for a photographer in the Des Moines area that is reasonably priced? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
