Family Sessions….

The question that is always asked during my indoor shooting time, i.e. winter , is do I photograph families. I know most of what you see on my fan page from Dec – March is newborns, milestones and maternity , but to answer the question YES !!!! I love photographing families and offer limited family sessions April – June and Sept – Nov. Im a very candid photographer when it comes to families. I love capturing your personalities not the fake cheese smile so many of us are trained to give when that big camera comes out. I love soft colors, tall grass, forest settings. You are able to get all of this in one location , my studio , when you book with me. If you are looking to book in 2016 I am currently down to 3 remaining sessions for the year. These are on sale until Feb 29th in my store. I am also accepting due dates for the following months Feb – Sept. Feel free to contact me via facebook or email with any questions or for my store link. Down below you will find a few of my favorite family sessions from 2015 to give you an idea of my work .

Brittney ❤

Meet us…. The Meyer Family

My name is Brittney, owner of Sweetest Dreams Photography. I wanted to introduce all of my new fans and clients to our not so little family. We run this business out of our home and my family is every bit a part of this company as I am. My husband, Fred, is my go to guy for just about anything. He is the guy who waits on clients , he spots babies, he is sometimes called the baby whisperer . My kiddos are Hannah, Tyler, Brenna, Lucas, Eden and Matthew. Many clients wont meet my older 5 since they are in school full time but from time to time Matthew , our 4 year old, sneaks down to check out whats going  on . But don’s worry hes very sneaky about it and most of the time he’s in and out and you don’t notice him. We have lived in many different places from NC to Wa thanks to the army. We are glad to call the Quad Cities home and have been so blessed to welcome so many families into our home. Here are a few shots , most have been on facebook , of our little family ❤ ❤

Charlotte 9 months

This sweet little lady is always full of smiles. This time she was entering the stranger danger stage so she took a little while to warm up. But once she realized mommy wasnt going to leave her she was full of smiles once again. She was so sweet in this little vintage slip I pulled for her. She has the prettiest blue eyes to . Big sister always joins in on some of the images as well. She really enjoys playing dress up with my dresses. Check out some of her sneak peaks below….

Hadley 6 months

Hadley is always such a joy in the studio. This time was no different. She was determined to show off her 2 new teeth with big grins. She thought I was pretty funny but no one held a candle to daddy. He would play peekaboo and her face would just light up. I think its safe to say she has him wrapped around her finger ❤ Take a look at a few of my favorites from her session. Feel free to leave a comment below …..

Addison & Quinn 1 year

Every session with these 2 is an adventure. I never know which one of them is going to love me and which one will want nothing to do with me. They are so different not just in looks but in their little personalities. Addison is super spunky and Quinn is very laid back and serious. This time though they both were full of smiles and giggles . I have enjoyed capturing their milestones through out this first year.

Brenna 9 Months

Oh Miss Brenna you are fiesty and just to sweet. At first she didnt want anything to do with this crazy picture taking experience but she warmed up once she was able to push around buckets and have a little phone play time . Her personality and energy keeps her parents on their toes thats for sure . Check out a few more of her sneak peaks below….

Royce turns 2…

I have been photographing Royce since he was a week old. This little guy just gets cuter and cuter as the years pass . His mom has become a good friend of mine and his big sister is a good friend of my youngest daughters. I must say he is a hard one to get to smile in front of the camera but we got a few little smirks out of him. Take a look at some of my favorites below.

Karlee 3 month

Oh this little one was full of smiles at her shoot and was just cooing away. 3 month olds can be a challenge to photograph but not Karlee she made my job so easy. Check out some of my favorites from her session
