{Minneapolis/St Paul Family Photographer}

Remember these 4 gorgeous girls from their family session last fall?!  I had the honor of photographing them again last week!  They are four of the most polite, beautiful, and full of personality girls I have ever met.  I always look forward to photographing them!  Mom dressed them all to suit their personalities this year, and I tried to get their personalities to shine through in their portraits.  Here's a sneak peek from their session, enjoy!

Don't forget the mini sessions are now available, details in the post below!

Little Miss Olivia had her "sitting up" session recently!  It is so much fun watching them grow from session to session!!  One of my favorite parts about what I do.  She did great considering her session was so close to her bedtime ;).  Here's a sneak peek from her session, enjoy!

Wow, I really need to get better about updating this blog!  I am going to put a sneak peek of the beautiful Miss Livia!  I have never seen a newborn with such beautiful curly hair, she was an absolute doll!  I had such a great time meeting her family, her big brother was so well behaved for a two year old boy :).

And some announcements to make!

1.) As of September 1st, 2011 I will no longer be offering the Watch Me Grow and Baby Steps first year programs.  But I will still be offering great benefits for those who have newborn sessions and return for another session in the first year!  The second session will be discounted 50% and the third session will be complimentary!  I love watching the babies grow throughout the first year and beyond, it is one of my favorite parts of my "job"!

2.) As of October 1st, 2011 I will be joining a new studio in Burnsville, MN!  It is a much better fit than my current space in Minneapolis for a number of reasons.  It's cleaner, easier to access, has a great natural light room for newborns, a room dedicated to just studio lighting, a private restroom, a family area, and so much more!  All newborn sessions will now be offered in the Burnsville studio for the standard $75 session fee (in home sessions will be available for $150).  Considering where most of my clients come from, it really is a central location.  A bit further for some, a bit closer for others.  But it is much closer to me so I'll be able to fit in another session every time I am there!  Which means less of a wait for those of you trying to schedule sessions!

3.) Fall/winter/spring sessions!  I am going to be limiting my availability even more in the coming months.  I feel as though this amazingly busy summer has taken it's toll on my family.  I feel incredibly blessed to be as busy as I have been, but I am going to be taking even fewer sessions in the months to come.  I will do my best to fit you all in!  Those of you that I cannot accommodate I will refer fellow photographers to.

And last but not least, MINI SESSIONS!!!  I have no weekend availability left until November, so if you are in need of a weekend session I encourage you to take advantage of the mini sessions!

Mini Sessions - $225 - 45 minute session and 10 Digital Images or Gift Prints (8x10 and smaller).  Great for holiday cards and gifts!  $75 deposit is due to hold your spot.

3:00 pm ~ 3:45 pm ~ 4:30 pm ~ 5:15 pm

2:30 pm ~ 3:15 pm ~ 4:00 pm ~ 4:45 pm

Meet beautiful baby Brynn!  She came a little earlier than anticipated, I think she really wanted to be here to see the fireworks :).  So she was 15 days old by the time we had her newborn session and I was a bit nervous.  But she was PERFECT throughout her session!  Slept like a champ!  At the very end we decided to try some on the baby bed and the first two times we laid her on it she would instantly cry.  But the third time was a charm and she snuggled right in and went back to sleep :).  Here's a sneak peek while I work on finishing up her gallery, enjoy!

Meet Liam, one of three newborn boys I had the honor of photographing last week!  Liam is the youngest of three boys and I  have been photographing their family for a couple of years now.  The boys are SO cute in this family :).  Liam was also the largest baby I have photographed thus far, 10 pounds 8 ounces!!  He really didn't seem all that big though!  Here are a few from his session, enjoy!

Minneapolis/St Paul Wedding Photographer

I am SO far behind on this poor blog!  I am heading to Iowa to photograph a wedding and figured I'd post the first wedding from 2011!  Erika and Alex were married in Red Wing, MN at Mississippi National Golf Course.  It was May 7, and we definitely lucked out with picture perfect weather that day!!  Here's a sampling from their wedding.  I wish them a lifetime of joy and happiness, enjoy!
