Sneak Peak - {P} turns 1!!

This has to be one of the most smiley one year olds I have ever captured. Sure made it quick and painless for his parents!! And this is only a slice of the cake with all the cuteness he gave me ;)
Look at those eyes and toothy grin....

Sneak Peak - The {S} Family

What a perfect family!! And let me tell you...I have never, ever gotten so many of the siblings together as this family. It was so cute because the little one wouldn't stay out of the pictures long enough to take many of the older one alone. But I sure wasn't complaining!! I LOVED their Christmas dresses they brought along and it made for such a fun session. {S} Family...hope you like your sneak peak and can't wait for you to see the rest!
Little {K} was such a hoot...she had so much spunk but did so great...


And {P} has the prettiest brown eyes...
And this is just plain beautiful if you ask me...

Black and White Wednesday - "Profile"

There is just something about the profile shot...I take one, two, o.k. maybe five at every session I do. There is just that innocense of it and it just reminds me of their little features they have. It usually is when children are just being themselves which in studio shots is definately harder to capture!
Once again, little man {P} gets to be on the his little profile!

Sneak Peak - P {1 year}

I was so happy for this family to return for Christmas pictures and {P}'s 1 year pictures. I had so much fun the last time {P} visited for his 9 month pictures and everyone I have talked to just loved the little hat and tie he had on. So I knew when I schedule this session it was going to turn out great! His older brother got to come along for Christmas pictures but wasn't too interested...I won't post any of those pictures so it's a surprise.
On to the pictures....
This is my absolute favorite!!

Thanks K family....hope you enjoy them and can't wait to watch your little guys grow!

Black and White Wednesday - "Farm Boy"

I had a totally different post planned for today but last night I was editing my last session and really liked the way this turned out. I started with a black and white photo and then added a black and white texture(I think it was Storm) and then added a redish colored texture on top(Red Sky). I thought it fit him so well because he is such a farm boy that it made the red shed come back to life!

Sneak Peak - {F} Family

I was so excited to be able to capture this family!! It was kind of cold and cloudy but we made it work....I love doing on-location sessions for something different. This was a perfect yard and had so many great backgrounds! They are cousins of Nick's and we are lucky to have them in our girls' daycare.
If you know {L} at all...this is the perfect spot for him...he is such a farmer boy and I just love this shot!


They are just so cute together...but this was one of the few together as {L} kept trying to move away!! Brotherly and sisterly love I tell ya!


And last but certainly not least...beautiful {J}!! Her and our youngest are two peas in a pod...they are in the same class at school and all K talks about. They definately are two spunky little girls but so much fun to watch.
Thanks {F} Family!!!

Black and White Wednesday - "Happy 1st Birthday"

Happy Birthday mini bubba!!! I am so blessed to have family live so close to us...this is the brother of last weeks black and white wednesday and the same little guy as this post a few posts back. You know, as parents you don't always notice the change babies make in 3 short months but I can't believe the change in K...he looks so much older now!! And he has managed to start walking and exploring everything in those short 3 months. Without further ado......K. Hope you have the best birthday little guy!! We love you!
K turns 1-0438b&wWEB
And the color version just because you can't miss his eyes!

Black and White Wednesday - Happy

I was taking pictures of our nephew K for his 1 year birthday coming up at the end of October when we decided to take a few pictures of the older kids. I was sitting editing them last night when Nick walked in and said that is so A!!! I love this picture because when she is at the age of cheesy smiles but this is so natural and perfect!!


And here is the black and white version....I just love what the texture added to it!

Black & White Wednesday - "9 months"

Isn't this little guy just the cutest thing ever! He joined our family just about a year ago now but I had to recap on his 9 month session because I have been so busy and I couldn't leave these off the blog!! He looks SO much like his older brother it's awesome!
And I just had to post it in color too...who can resist those eyes and his smile!
He was looking at mom!
And this one has a little grain added to it but I love it that way. Grandma has a picture of Grandpa that looks just like this...I can't wait to see the resemblance.

To see more Black and White Wednesday entries, head on over to Lisa's blog! They are about to embark on one of the best journey's ever to their little girl in China!! I can't wait to follow along. Say an extra prayer for them that they have safe travels!

Sneak Peak-{G} Family

I was so happy when this family wanted to come back for more!! They were my first official "stranger" family and we have become great friends since then. The kids had sure changed since they were here last time..I think they switched rolls!! But they sure stayed as cute as ever and were so much fun to capture. They kept me on my toes but I like a challenge once in a while....{G} Family, I hope you are as happy with these as I am...It was so much fun seeing and visiting with you again ;)

Definately a future heartbreaker!!
What a cutie...I just LOVED her little boots!! And it was much easier getting some smiles out of her this time ;)
And this time we got to capture mom and dad!!


Sneak Peak - {S} Family

I have been lucky enough to know this family forever...they are distant cousins of my husband and close cousins of my best friend so we pretty much grew up together. They 7 years ago we were both lucky enough to have two precious little girls about a month apart. Needless to say, they are great friends in school so we will be seeing a lot more of them! Happily of course ;) So when J secretively scheduled me to take family and couple pictures of them for their Anniversary I was elated. A is an awesome photographer herself...but who wouldn't be with these two cuties she has to capture. Thanks for a great time {S} Family...I just LOVE your yard and wish I had that many fun locations in one yard!!
These two remind me so much of my girls...they are so adorable!


What a cute can just tell they are still so much in love!

Black and White Wednesday-Beautiful Senior {2011}

I got to meet up with B again to capture the rest of her senior portraits...this time we were searching for all the fun locations...and if you have ever been to Northern Minnesota, you know that sometimes you have to really search! But I think we found them...and right in her back yard!

And I just had to add this one because it captured her true personality! Her cats wanted to be in the pictures so badly and she would just move them around so they weren't showing in ALL of them...well I loved them hiding in there! (look under her arm!)

To see more Black and White Wednesday entries, head on over to Lisa's blog! They have such exciting news and I couldn't be happier for them ;)
