I hope everyone is enjoying this warmer weather and getting geared up for Spring! I have been enjoying this past month spending time with my kiddos, family, friends, and getting side projects done. I am away through the start of April but wanted to send out a few photography opportunities that I’m launching for the Spring season (April 1st – June 1st).

This is Motherhood: Sara

  February 04, 2016

I started the “This is Motherhood” series earlier in 2015 to connect with other moms in the Twin Cities who, like me, rarely got in front of the camera lens with their kids. My goal is to have the photos tell a story of everyday life where these amazing women can look back years down the road & remember this blurry time of life.

My client/friend, Sara, had me over to document a typical morning with her two kiddos. Fall days consisted of coloring with chalk in the driveway, running around, playing in the backyard, and reading favorite books. You can see the joy & love that radiates from her daughters when they are around her… Sara, you are an AMAZING mom… Thank you for letting me document a little snippet of your life!

2015

  January 07, 2016

I usually have a really long end-of-the-year post but I’ll keep it semi short & sweet this time around (minus the million photos). 2015 was straight up AMAZING. I was able to continue doing more documentary style sessions, started my “This is Motherhood” project, traveled to Mexico to photograph a wedding on the beach, volunteered with Minnesota Heart Gallery, photographed & 2nd shot weddings, did 5 weekend days of back-t0-back mini-sessions, worked with families that I’ve known since my first year of business, and met many new smiling faces. 

Besides blogging more, I don’t really have a big “must do” list for 2016 except that I want to keep the momentum up for documentary style couples/family sessions. I’ve been doing this type of work for the past few years but really want to make it a focus going into the New Year. My goal is to have you look back at these photos years down the road & remember what life was like at that moment in time. 

I want to also continue creating photos that focus on you & your life story… This means staying away from any fuss like props (I personally find them to get in the way & distract), minimal editing on images (because laugh lines make you awesome & I don’t want you to look like a painting), and photographing at locations that are meaningful to you (which allows everyone to be much more relaxed = authenticity). I will have the option of adding an album to every session & it will be included with the Livet Colletion (2-3 hour documentary session) to show your session from start to finish. 

THANK YOU to every single person that I was able to photograph this year… Cheers!

Sarah :: This is Motherhood

  October 07, 2015

A FEW WEEKS AGO I SPENT AN HOUR OUT OF THE MORNING WITH MY FRIEND, SARAH, AND HER TWO SONS. I LOVE THESE SESSIONS BECAUSE I GET TO HANG OUT, TALK TO THE KIDS, HAVE COFFEE WITH THE MOM, AND CAPTURE THE LITTLE MOMENTS IN BETWEEN.

DURING THIS SPECIFIC SESSION, I WAS QUICKLY FLOODED WITH MEMORIES OF THE YEAR THAT MY YOUNGEST WAS A NEWBORN AND MY OLDEST WAS JUST SHY OF 2. IT IS FUNNY HOW THAT SLEEP DEPRIVED, SURVIVAL MODE, BEAUTIFUL, AND CRAZY TIME OF MY LIFE FEELS LIKE YESTERDAY YET STILL INCREDIBLY DISTANT. I WISH I COULD GO BACK AND HAVE SOMEONE COME INTO MY HOUSE TO CAPTURE ALL THE TOYS ON THE FLOOR, MULTIPLE CUPS OF (ONCE HOT) COFFEE THAT WERE FORGOTTEN IN THE WHIRLWIND OF DIAPER CHANGES, AND TWO BABY BOYS ATTACHED TO MY HIP.

THE MOTHERHOOD PROJECT IS A PERSONAL PROJECT FOR ME BECAUSE IT NOT ONLY LETS ME CONNECT TO SO MANY WONDERFUL WOMEN BUT ALSO LET’S ME DOCUMENT A SNIPPET OUT OF A MOTHER’S LIFE SO THEY CAN LOOK BACK ONE DAY AND BE REMINDED OF THOSE MOMENTS THAT BECOME HAZY IN THE MIND AS TIME TICKS AWAY.

THANK YOU TO SARAH, L, & E FOR LETTING ME SHARE YOUR MORNING!

THIS IS MOTHERHOOD: DANIELLE

  May 19, 2015

I GOT THE CHANCE TO DOCUMENT THE MORNING OF MY FRIEND, DANIELLE, AND HER ADORABLE BOYS, JONES & FITZ.  THEIR MORNINGS ARE SPENT CUDDLING UP AT HOME AND WANDERING AROUND THE BEAUTIFUL FOREST IN THEIR BACKYARD… OH YEAH, AND THE SUPERHERO JUMPS ON THE BED. :)

FROM DANIELLE (AND YES, I TOTALLY CRIED READING HER ANSWERS)…

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE MOMENTS (LITTLE OR BIG) THAT YOU SHARE WITH JONES AND FITZ?
“Well, Jones is hilarious, a maniac, but hilarious. Our daily conversations are totally off the wall. I look forward to hearing his stories about his day every night. He has made me laugh more in the last 3 years than ever before. Fitz gives me those sweet baby moments. His smile, his smell, his chubby little thighs melt my heart. Of course there are all those sweet every day moments like secretly loving every time Jones crawls into my bed at 5am asking for a snuggle. But the best is after a long day, seeing the excitement on both their faces when I pick them up. They are my world and at least at this time in our lives, I am theirs and there is nothing better.”

HOW HAS MOTHERHOOD CHANGED YOU?
“Motherhood has basically turned me into an emotional gooey blob. Every tragic and frightening news story or even just a missing puppy sign causes my lip to quiver. When you have so much love for someone and consequently so much to lose, it’s absolutely terrifying. These boys have exposed me to an overwhelming, all consuming kind of love that I never could have imagined and now could not live without.”

WHAT DO YOU WANT JONES & FITZ TO REMEMBER ABOUT YOU WHEN THEY LOOK BACK AT THESE PHOTOS?
“I want the boys to remember the fun. I want them to always think back to their childhood with a real appreciation for the sweet and often very crazy time we spend together as a family. I want them to know me as their fun-loving mom and as their biggest fan no matter where life takes them.”

THANK YOU, D & BOYS!

“Every morning he gets up and the first thing he says is “Good morning, I Love You!”. Of course it’s immediately followed by, “Can I watch a show?” or something of the sort, but those first words every day are priceless, and have been etched into my memory.”

HOW HAS MOTHERHOOD CHANGED YOU?
“It’s inspired me to relentlessly juggle life. It challenges me to (attempt to) be the best I can be at several things, every minute of every day. I don’t always succeed at each of them, but I try, and I do it all for him. And no matter how hard the day or how many attempts at success, I end the day with that little man and I try to remind myself how lucky I am to be a mom. Even when I’m tired, covered in sticky and couldn’t get him down fast enough.”

WHAT DO YOU WANT SULLIVAN TO REMEMBER ABOUT YOU WHEN HE LOOKS BACK AT THE PHOTOS WE CAPTURED?
I think it’s funny looking back, remembering how hurried I was coming from a long day at work before the shoot, but that’s the thing I like about these photos as opposed to the ones we’ve been more prepared for. I hope he’ll look at these and remember the real me. I want him to see that he was and always will be my first priority. I want him to know that I always made time for him even if I showed up a mess, still wearing a work blazer to the park. That I still climbed those monkey bars and played with him, my whole world. I want him to see the happiness that’s on my face every day when I pick him up after work, and know how precious those evening hours are to me and to us.

THIS IS MOTHERHOOD: ALISON

  May 04, 2015

THE NEXT MAMA I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT FOR MY “THIS IS MOTHERHOOD” PROJECT IS THE GORGEOUS ALISON AND HER ADORABLE SON, AUGUST. WE COZIED UP INSIDE THEIR BEAUTIFUL HOME, PLAYED GAMES, READ BOOKS, ATE PEARS, AND GOT A LITTLE SUNSHINE ON THE STOOP.

I ASKED ALISON A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE WITH BEING A MOTHER…

1. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE MOMENTS (LITTLE OR BIG) THAT YOU SHARE WITH AUGUST?

“Now, granted, I’ve only been at this motherhood gig for a little more than a year, but I think some of my favorite moments when he surrenders to sleep in my arms – his little body getting just that bit heavier and his sweet breath warm against my skin. I also just love some of the more rough and tumble moments when he crashes into me, tackles me and smothers me with big, old, open-mouthed baby kisses.”

2. HOW HAS MOTHERHOOD CHANGED YOU?

“In heading into this whole adventure I really just hoped I’d at least like this kid a little bit. I had no idea how completely in love I would be. Motherhood has tested my patience, my compassion, the very strings of my heart (my tolerance for lack of sleep, it goes without saying). And in all of these cases, I have been surprised by the stretching that was already happening and how much farther I had yet to be able to give. I’m finding that in a lot of ways motherhood isn’t really redefining me, but refining me.”

3. WHAT DO YOU WANT AUGUST TO REMEMBER ABOUT YOU FROM THE IMAGES THAT WE CAPTURED?

“I want to be remembered as a mama who is quick to laugh, who doesn’t hesitate to get down and roll around on the floor, and who loves from the very core of my self. I want him to always know that feeling of being completely enveloped in love – be that physically or emotionally.”

A BIIIIIIIIG THANK YOU TO ALISON AND AUGUST FOR LETTING ME DOCUMENT A SNIPPET OUT OF THEIR MORNING ROUTINE.

IN FRONT OF THE LENS

  April 15, 2015

LAST WEEK I WROTE OF A PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE THAT I ‘M EMBARKING ON FOR THE YEAR. I HAVE BEEN PRESENT FOR 100% OF THE SPECIAL MEMORIES THAT MY FAMILY AND I MAKE BUT YOU’D NEVER EVEN KNOW I WAS THERE DUE TO THE ABSENCE OF MY FACE IN PHOTOS. I WANTED TO GET OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE AND PUT MY BIG FRECKLY FACE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA… SO WITH THAT, I WILL BE TAKING A PHOTO OR TWO WITH MY KIDS & I EVERY DAY. 

MY GOAL FOR WEEK 2 IS TO HAVE DAN TAKE MORE PHOTOS OF THE BOYS AND I… MAYBE ALSO A FULL BODY PHOTO… EEEEEK! RAISE YOUR HAND IF ALL PHOTOS OF YOU ARE FROM THE SHOULDERS UP… ME! ME! ME! I WILL SLOWLY ACCEPT THESE BIG BIRTHING HIPS. ;)

I HOPE MANY OF YOU ARE ALSO MAKING A PRIORITY TO GET IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA WITH YOUR FAMILY!
