Meet my first family session in Buffalo, MN! I am extremely excited to share this session and tell you all about this amazing family!
It all started when I decided to open up my second studio location. I (by I, I mean my husband and I) have been working between work, shoots and our family life to get the new location up and running. We have just a few strips of flooring to complete and then we're (by we're, I mean me) ready to rock! In the meantime, I have been itching to use the organic landscapes I see EVERYWHERE around my new diggs so I blasted out a family Model Call and this was the lucky winning family!!!
This family was spunky, pretty, handsome, and really amazing singers! If I recall correctly, they (the kids, not the parents) sang: "Dave likes to wear dirty underwear" for about 90 minutes. If you aren't aware, it's a fabulous little tune from Alvin and the Chipmunks... (You're welcome, you're going to sing this for about 2.5 hours.) :) Anyway, they sang and danced and it was lovely! So many parents stress over getting the perfect family shot and forcing littles to sit, focus, slinging bribe after bribe but it's just not organic. It's not how I want to shoot. It's not how I want my clients to remember their session. I want my families to have energy and enthusiasm. It's real. It's enjoyable. It's beautiful, and darn it, it's framable!
I hope you will come and see my new studio when it's open (watch for the announcements on Facebook, Instagram, the web, etc. ) There are going to be great things happening out here in the Western suburbs. I hope you will follow along and make memories with me soon. For now, I would like to share these beauties!
Meet the expanded Larson family! Mama and Daddy along with two very lovely big sisters brought in their new little babe, Remy for an updated family shoot. Little Remy was such a snuggle bug and his toes were the cutest! His big sisters (who are actually quite petite) stole the show! Miss. M was missing a few teeth and was VERY proud of her new look - take a look, she's adorable!
Congratulations to all of you, you have the perfect little family!!!
Cooper is the coolest kid. He brought me around his daddy's fire station for his milestone birthday session and it's pretty obvious that he feels right at home. He showed me all the bells and whistles, rocked his helmet, and giggled A LOT. It's been fun capturing this sweetheart over the years and this session of his might be my favorite. He's such a sharp kid and has such a kind soul!
I hosted my first ever bunny sessions this year and HOLY EASTER, were they fun! Here are just a few of the sessions!

I met these two at Rice Creek Park for a few organic pine tree shots then headed to the US Bank Stadium for the fun photos! Krista and Kurt are pretty involved in sports and are die hard Vikings fans so this session was right up their alley. Kurt was such a good sport and I know they will have a lifetime of fun adventures ahead of them! Their next being in late April!
I LOVE the Where the Wild Things Are theme, and sweet little Jack pulled it off so well!
Mama brought in a sprinkled donut for the shoot and it blows my mind that no one else has ever done that. It really was a neat twist to the traditional first birthday cake smash.
Wishing you a very happy birthday handsome Jack! You're such a doll and I can't wait to watch you grow!
Meet Nikko & Ryan + lulu!
This adorable mama to-be is absolutely stunning at 33 weeks! Check out the shots in the amber room at the Guthrie below! I can't even tell you how cute her little belly is in that fitted striped dress!
Meet a very special New Years baby named Grant. He came into the studio for his first birthday session ready with a beautiful plane themed cake and props. We had expected an epic cake smash but he was so sweet and a true gentleman about it! I always enjoy these 12 month milestone sessions because the kids are adorable and you can really see their personality, and first time mama's usually rock the shoot with amazing themes! If you're interested in these plane themed props for your little one's session, Grant's mama is amazing and has an interest in renting them out.
Eric and Max were married in October and were so very handsome in their coordinating navy suits. We took advantage of the always gorgeous Gold Medal Park then walked to Day Block Brewery for their intimate afternoon ceremony.
