W Family Mini Session

The beautiful matriarch of this family is a friend of mine from church who is also a talented photographer. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was so fun going out and snapping a few with this lovely family! We even had a dance party! I feel blessed that over the years Irene and I have grown closer, and I look forward to that relationship continuing to grow. Thank you all for another wonderful shoot!

U Family Mini Session

Almost every moment spent with this family is spent laughing! Little E did a fabulous job with all the outfit changes and giving us her best smiles (courtesy of some Cookie Monster impersonations from momma and daddy!)

C Family: Mini Session

This savvy momma went shopping online for a photographer and found lil ol’ me! We headed over to a park near their home to snap a few shots of their beautiful family for their Christmas cards. I loved the grey and purple combination they wore, it was perfect against the green leaves in the background. They recently moved here from Texas, and the chilly Minnesota weather was just starting to set in, but they were brave and did a great job despite the cool weather! Thanks C family for a wonderful session!

D Family: Mini Session

It’s always so fun getting to capture a larger family like this, especially when they are coordinated as nicely as this one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sheri is one of the wonderful people I’ve met through my MOPS group. I love her laid back attitude, she makes me feel as though having four kiddos is no big deal. I know I said it once already, but these four were seriously good as gold! I have twice photographed these cute little boys, but this year there were three new additions: mom, dad and their sweet little sister, who I had the pleasure of photographing as a sweet little newborn. We went back toย Lebanon Hills Regional Park and the colors were just perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved watching the boys explore all the different trees and walk down the path. They are such a fun bunch! Thank you again for yet another awesome shoot!

J Family: Mini Session

Every time I get an e-mail from this family’s momma I get so excited because I just love hanging out with them. Capturing their beautiful, growing family brings me such joy. They are truly wonderful kind people. The last time I took their pictures little T was only a baby. She has grown into such a beautiful and spunky little girl! And big brother B continues to grow more handsome and sweet each time I see his smiling face. Thank you again J family for a great day! Photo shoot or not, I can hardly wait to see you again!



C Family

This family always makes me laugh! ๐Ÿ˜€ You can just tell they genuinely love each other and love being together! I had the privilege of taking their pictures last year, but you’ll notice they have since added another member to the group. Chunky, lovable, sweet baby B. (Well technically he was in the pictures last year too…heeheehee.) Steve and Jess are so adorable together, I could just take pictures of them snugglin’ and huggin’ for an hour! Such chemistry! C family, you guys are always a joy to hang out with! Thanks so much for another fun filled session!

R Family

Having such great clients makes me feel truly blessed. Honestly, I have so many wonderful ones. But these guys, they are also my awesome, thoughtful, funny, generous neighbors. ๐Ÿ™‚ Blessed I tell ya. I can’t even tell you how many times momma V has hooked me up with an egg or a cup of sugar or has watched my kiddos for an hour while I had to run somewhere. She even loaned me an enormous tub of maternity clothes while I was pregnant with both girls! Daddy J is always ready with a quick joke and treats our daughters like family when we go over to play. Each of their beautiful girls has such a unique personality: oldest sister A is responsible, smart and a caretaker, middle sister N is a sassy but sweet clown, and sweet little J is adorably affectionate and laid back. I loved capturing their different personalities. Anytime I get to spend with this family is great (usually in our backyards), but I had SO much fun with them during this quick little mini-session. Thanks for a great shoot!
