Mornings with the L. Family

  June 23, 2016

Mornings with the L. Family involve a short drive over to their favorite park on Lake Minnetonka & playing on the deck with their pups. 

We all know how our lives can look dramatically different in even one year and I’m thankful that this sweet family let me capture images that tell a story of their life at this very moment. 

Thank you, L. Family!

It truly feels like yesterday that I was photographing Mandy & Patrick’s wedding and here were 3 years later with a new baby girl added to their family. I went to their home for a mini lifestyle newborn session and got to capture a snippet of a winter morning in-home. I love those short and sweet peeks into someone’s life where everything is unscripted and organic. 

I simply adore this family & always leave their sessions with my cheeks hurting from smiling and laughing. Thank you to M, P, M, & M for giving me the honor of documenting all the special milestones during the past few years! xo

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!
