Natural light studio...coming soon!

I have had a lot of inquiries about my nearly finished (in home) natural light studio so I decided to do a little blog post to show some images from it. These photos are of my favorite little models, my two youngest kids. Occasionally, they like to ham it up for me and I am able to get some fun shots (doesn't happen very often anymore). The following images were taken in the studio in the morning and early afternoon. The flooring is about 70 % finished and should be all ready to go in about a week. I would love to take some new little models photos in here, contact me if you would like to book!

this is me with my middle sweetie, I love how she is looking at me in this shot. I set the camera up on a chair, focused it and set the self timer, didn't turn out too bad for not having anyone to take it!

the isaman trio| mn childrens photographer

These three are the gorgeous kids of an awesome teacher and friend of mine. I was so excited when she asked me to take her kids photos. The night of our session, the weather was amazing and the location couldn't have been beat! They met me at our farm and we walked around looking for great spots (there was no shortage!). Thanks 'I' family, it was great to catch up!

I love these next shots, the girls were trying to help me get their little brother to smile, I think that it worked! The setting sun in the background really added to the feel of the shots!

birthday girl | MN childrens photographer

Have I mentioned that I LOVE what I do?! It is such an honor and so humbling to me to be able to capture moments for families! I have known this little girls mom and dad for a few years and I was in seventh heaven when they asked me to take their sweeties 1 year portraits. We were even able to schedule the session on her actual birthday, which made it all the more special. The reason I was so thrilled to have her in front of my lens should be easy to guess once you see the photos. This little one is a beauty, the hair, the eyes, the cheeks...she literally had me melting the moment she walked in the door! Once again, I apologize for the image overload, I couldn't decide on just a couple peeks, I LOVED so many of the images!
And just in case you couldn't tell, these were taken in the studio! I am looking forward to a great winter season in here (and outdoors too, if the weather allows!)
Enough with all the talking, here is little miss aubry's debut on the blog! I LOVE her eyes, so gorgeous!

the Rinde family | MN family photographer

It has been one insanely busy fall around here, such a GOOD thing! Thanks to all of you who have patiently waited for orders, sneak peeks and emails, I appreciate your support so much!
I am proud to say that this family was the very first family to visit me in the new studio. It isn't quite finished (a little trim work and some more flooring and it will be all done!).
This is the third time that I have gotten to catch up with the Rinde's and i am still so honored and humbled that they travel so far to have me take their photos! This time around they brought new baby Eli with them, what a little sweetie he was!
Thanks again, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

the Yost Family | MN family photographer

I love when families suggest new locations for their photo sessions! I met this family close to their lake home at a park I had never heard of (and I am sure not many have, outside of the locals!). There were so many spots, I had a hard time narrowing them down! The Yosts were a fun and easy group to work with and I apologize in advance for the image overload, I couldn't decide on just a couple! Thank you for a fun day!
The original members of the Yost family.
