A natural at 6 months – Maple Grove Baby photographer

The last time I saw this little gal she was just a week old. She was so good to me then and made my job easy this time as well. This little one LOVES the camera (and it loves her!). The fact that her parents are equally sweet and up for anything, well, it really makes me love my job even more. We had such a beautiful night for their session, the light was gorgeous!

The T girls – Eden Prairie Children’s Photography

This was Miss H’s 6 month session on the Watch Me Grow plan. She has the most beautiful eyes.

Big sister S, although not very old herself, is a graduate herself.

and this was one that as soon as I clicked the shutter, I was in love. The light, her expression, the framing….

So sweet. Mom had seen this shot I did for another family and wanted to try it with her girls. It took a few tries but the end result is worth it, don’t you think?

Great seeing you T family!

The boy’s turn

I can’t believe James turned 15 months yesterday! He’s getting so big. I was a couple months late on his year portraits, but about a month early for Ben’s 4 yr pictures so it all evens out, right? I took just the boys out…by myself. It was a bit of a challenge doing Ben’s pictures while trying to watch James as he was running all over the place but I wanted to keep distractions to a minimum (those with 1 yr olds know how short their attention spans are).

Happy birthday Ben and James!! Love you little guys!

Happy Birthday Miss G!

This was my second session with Miss G, love her! She wasn’t so sure about some of the props but thanks to some silliness, leaves and cheerios we were able to capture some great shots.

Brand New – St Paul Newborn photography

Meet M, the newest member of the B family. Such a cute little guy. It’s often the little things in images that makes me love them…

like the way he’s holding his feet

Thanks for trusting me with your little ones first pictures!

Just a few – Minneapolis Child Photographer

Just a few of one of my favorite families. I’ve known them since this little one was just a week old and somehow Miss A seems like she should be older than just 2 1/2. Going to their sessions always feels more like hanging out with old friends. I’m going to save most of their images for their holiday cards but I had to give Mrs L just a quick peek.

Miss A did amazing, she’s becoming such a beautiful little girl.

and every couple needs a recent picture of themselves, no matter how many kids they have!

Thanks A and B (and Miss A)! It was great seeing you, as always!
