Fun Family

How cute is this family?  I’ve gotten to know Carrie and Brent from church, and it was a pleasure meeting their 4 beautiful children.  We had a fun session, their kids are hilarious!  It was so fun to see how they all interacted, and it made me really excited for what’s to come as my kids get a bit older and more independent!  I could really feel the love between all of them and I think it shows in these images!  Love them!!!!


Look who’s 1!

Well, actually 13 months already!  Landon came all the way from Detroit Lakes for a visit!  He was such a happy baby and had fun exploring the studio.  Landon’s mom Krista and I went to college and it was soooo great getting to see her again!  We had a perfect session, and ended it by braving the cold for a few outdoor pictures with their dog Drake 🙂  What an adorable family!!!!!

Happy Birthday

Little Miss Claire brought her mom and dad to the studio for 1 year pictures.  The last time I saw Claire was when she was only 6 days old!  When she was born, she had complications with her heart that have resulted in more than a few surgeries over the past year.  You wouldn’t know she’d been through more than most adults in her short little life if you met her.  She was all smiles and crawling and exploring everything.  We had so much fun at her session, and she even crawled over to me more than a couple times to see her picture on the back of the camera!  TOO CUTE!!!!!!  Mollie and Kyle, thanks for bringing her back to see me.  You have a precious little girl!  Happy Birthday Claire!

Sweet little Elle

It’s been 9 months since I’ve last seen Elle.  She was a tiny little newborn only about a week old when we first met.  She is still as cute as ever!  Elle had fun exploring the studio and was quite the smiler 🙂  Thank you Christine for bringing her back to visit me again!  You now have two very beautiful little girls!!!!  I hope you enjoy the preview!

Baby Lane

I had an on location newborn shoot on Friday with baby Lane.  She is an absolute doll and one of the best sleepers I’ve ever had!!!  She was perfect the entire time and let us play with her without so much as a tiny squeak!  Lane has three extremely loving and equally beautiful older siblings who were all too excited to take turns holding her for the pictures.  It was such a fun shoot and nice to be out of the studio and back on location for a change.  I took advantage of Lane’s gorgeous nursery and got some fun detail shots too!!!!  Marcy and Jim, thank you for allowing me to capture this very special time in your lives.  Your have four amazing children!  I hope you enjoy the preview!  A BIG thanks to my awesome assistant Poly for all of your help and hard work yesterday!!!!
