Great times with a wonderful family..11.23.14

I love getting referrals from my clients – I really do!  Especially when my clients send me a great family to work with!  I had the pleasure of capturing this baby boy’s first images – including the first time he was held by his older brother!   All in all – my heart was melting the entire session!  Enjoy the previews!

Mr. Max Visits the studio! {Burnsville, MN Child Family Photographer}02.07.13

Mr. Max came to visit to get some portraits with his very historic baptismal gown! This was a great session to do as I felt like I was really capturing something quite historic with this gown. Max’s Mom, Aunts and Grandma have all used this same gown to get baptised in and his Grandma had photos done of her children with the same gown! I can’t wait until Max’s Mom & Grandma can have these two images side by side!

Max also was my first 3 month old that fell asleep during his session – so we were lucky enough to get some sleepy photos! :) He was such a great sport!! –> Great Baby!!

Ehlke/Nelson Cancun, Mexico Wedding -{Wedding Photographer}01.02.13

This is one of my very good friends who was married December 2012 in Cancun Mexico at the Excellence Playa Mujeres Resort. The resort photographer got the main photos as it was already part of their package – but I was happy to get the before shots of the girls and give her some of those “before she was married” memories!

Growing baby {4 Months already!} -{Lakeville, MN Family Photographer}01.01.13

This is my newest nephew that came to see me once he got a little bigger! Blake was born in August and the last time we did photos we made a make-shift studio in my sister’s middle of no-where country home in Wisconsin! That was quite the adventure thinking back but results were great! – This time she was up at my house for the holidays so we made it over to the studio to have some fun there! My older nephew Alec was along for the ride as well and snuck in some photos with his favorite baby brother! Lately Alec has not been as patient for photos but this time he said: “this one is just me, by myself” – I was shocked! :) He always says: “Cheese Beans” and gives this crazy smile with eyes nearly shut – so we all say “Open your eyes” – then he opens them really wide and says “They ARE open!” ha! There were many giggles during our session and it will be crazy another 3 months from now when we hopefully do another! I can’t wait!

Blake has these adorable smiles that you can get out of him just by talking to him – I am so glad we were able to get some of them out for the camera! :) Mom was very happy with the results and so was I! – Enjoy.
