Ferg. What can I say about this poodle with a 'tude!??! I can't get enough of his style and sass and feel so honored that I've been able to photograph this family for the past 4 years! Thank you, Laura, for keeping me entertained with his fashions and comic relief!!
What a sweet family of three!!! We spent the night at a local park and captured all the silly and sweet embraces Mr. W shared with his mama and daddy. The family has decided to find out what gender the baby is upon delivery and I am SO excited to hear! Congrats to all of you!
OMG. These brothers were good for the soul! I can't get over how much big brother snuggles and kisses his sweet baby!! Congratulations!!!
Miss Molly - what a dollie! She's such a sweet girl and her big brother was not camera shy either!!! Congrats on becoming a sweet family of 4!
I have a funny story! I shot this family for the first time last year and when the gallery went live, I heard crickets. I was so nervous as I spend a bunch of time and put love into editing each session that when I hear nothing, it can get the best of me. When Mama booked me again this year, I was thrilled but nervous as her gallery from 2017 was still sitting there untouched. Turns out, she is like me and EVERY OTHER mama out there... plain old BUSY. We had a good laugh and then I found out she had another baby. :) She was BUSY.
Here they are again, with their ADORABLE tribe! I think this might be one of the happiest families around. What do you think?
I am always so appreciative and grateful for clients that I see every year and The Cruz family is one of them! They're a perfect little trio of giggles and snuggles! Enjoy a few highlights from their 2018 family photos!
Ellen + Michael and their pup Nino make the cutest trio, am I right!?!?!
I met all three of them at Montissippi Regional Park in Monticello for their sunset engagement session and captured everything funny, sweet and adorable about them! It was such a beautiful sight to watch them interact and I can see why they've fallen head over heels for each other. The are both so kind, funny and very compatible!
I'm thrilled to share these highlights and can't wait to document their 2019 wedding!
Each time I walk into the room for a Fresh 48 newborn session, it's filled with soft voices, that new baby smell and warmth from the window light. I absolutely love photographing these sessions for new parents, 2nd and 3rd time parents! If you've ever had a baby, you know the entire experience is very surreal. Having a fresh 48 in the hospital is a great way to capture the newness of your sweet little one before you head home. It's that last opportunity to soak up all the baby kisses and swaddles before you head home to your new life. I always say it, but I am so honored to be chosen for these opportunities to photograph families.
Meet sweet Evelyn. She was born on Saturday at 9:53pm after taking her sweet time making her grand entrance. Mama and daddy are so in love and she was totally worth the wait!
Congratulations to this new family. I am so excited for all of you!
It's really quite an adventure photographing toddlers. All of their curiosity mixed with countless emotions is absolutely beautiful to photograph. I think this kind of family session is much more organic and I love documenting them in this storytelling fashion. Miss. Harper was full of energy, scouting out all the little things that caught her attention all while her bouncy little curls and thick eyelashes shimmered during golden hour.
I am forever amazed with toddlers. They really are the most beautiful little souls!
Warning! You ** MAY ** want another baby after seeing this post!
Mama reached out months ago to set up this fresh 48 hospital session so I've been anxiously awaiting sweet Nora's arrival!! She was born just a few days early and is about the most perfect baby I've ever seen. She's got the sweetest coloring in her lips and cheeks and a little heart shaped patch of hair on the back of her head. She also looked pretty adorable in all the swaddles and headbands mama brought with! I can't tell you how many beautiful embraces were exchanged between this new family of three. No surprise but this daddy was a big old puddle of mush for his two best girls and I am so thankful I was able to capture this sliver of time for all of you.
Congrats on your sweet little lady!
Maggie and Colin met me at at the Interstate Park in Taylors Falls for their romantic engagement session!
Maggie and Colin met in the 7th grade and he asked her to a school dance. Unfortunately, Maggie said no as she was not allowed to date. After being friend zoned for years, Colin got up the courage to ask her out again two years ago and they've been inseparable since! Congrats Colin! You're an inspiration to all "friend-zoned" people everywhere! :)
I am honored to be your photographer!
I had THE BEST time with Alicia and John! We met at Theo Wirth Park for their summer engagement session and they laughed, a lot! Alicia and John are undeniably an attractive couple and have such beautiful love for each other. They started on land and ended in the water like all fabulous couples should! When she said, "can we jump in?!" I was like, GAWD yes. What took you so long!? :)
I use a little trick called promptography with all of my clients. I ask them to say silly things, throw out random facts, act out a particular scene, etc. so they are less likely to stand around feeling awkward and worrying about their hands. It's hilarious and interesting to see which direction my clients take things. For example, during their session, we found out Alicia could not accurately state John's birthday. I laughed HARD and he looked appalled as she threw out random months and dates. To be fair to her, I did throw her a curve ball but I'm happy to report she finally got it right! : )
Congratulations on your engagement! I'm honored to be your 2019 wedding photographer!
