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.

The Swenson Family | MN family photographer

When I heard that I was meeting this fun group at their lake home this fall, I was pretty excited! I love lake shoots, but of course, the weather decided otherwise. That day was extremely windy and a little chilly, so outside (at least by the lake) shots were out of the question. I wasn't too worried though after I toured their home and discovered the great room had a TON of yummy light pouring through the many big windows. We set up in that room and took some family shots and then headed outside where the wind wasn't too bad. Being a photographer means being flexible and ready for anything, good thing I came with my game face on!

the Nehk family 2010

I loved this family session so much I decided to make a video! Aren't these images so fun?

a pair of active little guys | ND children & family photographer

A couple of weeks ago, I met this adorable family of 4 at Island Park in Fargo. It was a quick shoot with a pair of active brothers but sometimes those turn out to be the best sessions! I loved how these images turned out, they are so true to life! I apologize in advance for the overload of photos, I honestly couldn't help myself! There were way too many to choose from!
Thanks 'N' family, it was fun!
