S Family

My good friend Lindsey gave me a call and said, “Ever since we moved here I’ve ALWAYS wanted to do a winter photo shoot. Can we get out and do one this weekend?” So we did! We hit the trails at Ritter Farm Park near their home. I absolutely LOVE how the pictures turned out! They all did so great, and they nailed their outfits! Colorful and coordinated, with enough contrast to stand out against the winter backdrop. Thanks for a great shoot!


N Family

Knowing her family would all be visiting from out of state, my friend Erin contacted me asking if we could do an extended family shoot. I was excited to work with them and visit with her again. Extended family shoots are one of my favorites to do, as I believe the images produced are the kind that will be treasured for generations.

This fab family met me at Centennial Lakes on a chilly day for their shoot. Everyone stayed in high spirits despite the low temps. They were such a treat to work with, I had so much fun! I was seriously impressed with the kiddos. (As well as the adults, you may pat yourselves on the back for toughing it out too!) Thanks N family for a great shoot! Enjoy your images! 🙂

D Family: Mini Session

Wasn’t it just last week this fun family was at my house for little S’s newborn pictures? No? How’d that happen? Silly time. Passing by all quick like. We headed to Farmington for this quick and fun fall mini session. I’m always so seriously impressed with how well these kiddos listen. There was definitely leaf pile jumping and crunching and running around and such, but when it came time for their pictures, they did great! D family, it’s always a pleasure. Let’s hang out again soon, okay?

P Family Minisession

The last time I had the pleasure of taking this family’s pictures it was out on their family farm very near where I grew up. 🙂 And it was an extended family shoot with all their cousins. AND little J was not born yet. I was so excited to get together with them again, meet J (goodness she is such a sweetheart!), and spend some time capturing their beautiful family. We had a very relaxing morning together at Ritter Farm Park. The kiddos were excellent listeners and helpers (they adorably needed to carry my props for me.) Thank you guys again for a great shoot, I truly hope to see you again soon! 🙂

J Family

The last time I hung out with this wonderful family we went to Lake Nokomis, this time they humored me and took me up on my request to try out a new-to-me-location: Minnehaha Falls. The park was just HOPPING with photographers. I believe I counted at least 14 before I lost track… It was the perfect place to be on a gorgeous October day! Their kiddos are incredibly fun and well behaved, I so enjoy working with them. They made my job SO easy! While our time together was short, I truly had a fun time with you all! Thank you for another great shoot!

H & A Families

I was very excited when my good friend Kristy approached me about taking pictures of her extended family. While it can be a challenge to photograph so many little ones, to capture three generations like this is such a treasure! Extended family portraits are truly one of my very favorite type of session. I love watching grandparents interact with their grandchildren, seeing their love and adoration. I know they all put a lot of time and thought into coordinating this session, and the efforts were appreciated and did not go unnoticed. Thank you all for a fun session! 🙂


D Family

I so enjoyed spending the late afternoon with my brother and his family. Walking around the farm I grew up in is always good for my heart. My nieces and nephew did such a great job cooperating for me! Oh the giggles and grins we had! The only challenge was an overly friendly farm kitty that REALLY wanted to be in a number of pictures (her tail has been edited out of several images! LoL) Thanks so much for a wonderful shoot, I love spending time with you all!
