Sneak Peak - Baby {A}

I am so lucky to be able to capture little tiny newborns when they are still so fresh in the world...each and everytime it is a new adventure.  This was definately one of my easiest ones yet and I had so much fun catching up with her parents.  Her dad was another classmate of mine, that is one thing about our small community, there is still a lot of us around the area so I get to capture their families as well!

This is a new all time favorite...I just love the colors as it just brought out her eyes...

And what a perfect little family....

 
And last, but certainly not least, we got to add in a special blanket and sweater...ADORABLE!

Thanks {K} family for choosing me to capture your beautiful new addition to your family...I can't wait to watch her grow!

Being Thankful...Sneak Peak {B} and {K}

Happy Thanksgiving...hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and get to enjoy it throughout the weekend!  Unfortunately, I get to head back to work tomorrow but at least I love where I work ;)  I wanted to sneak this post up as it was such a fitting day for it.  I have been lucky enough to know these two girls' mom forever.  Facebook has wonderful ways of connecting me to the past and I was so happy when their mom contacted me to capture the two girls.  I think their mom and dad have LOTS to be thankful for with these two.  It has been amazing meeting so many people through my photography business that have gotten to adopt, and how lucky they all are.  It is a dream of mine to fly across the world some day and do some missionary work at an orphanage and I can not wait to see that dream come true...but until then, I will just enjoy my job and love up on all the kids I get to capture during the year ;)
I just loved, loved their mom's choice of clothing...and a great way to start the holiday season!

I think by now, everyone knows that one of my favorite images is a profile image.  I just had to giggle when I was editing these, little {K} was giggling so hard at her big sister that you can hardly see her little eyes, so when it was {B}'s turn to try, {K} was trying all sorts of moves to get her to laugh like she did!


Thanks {B} family for letting me capture your gorgeous girls!  It was so fun catching up, next time I hope I get to stay and enjoy your girls for a while ;)

Sneak Peak - {K} turns 6 months!

I can't believe this little girl is already 6 months!  Where in the world does the time go...I have been busy trying to play catch up and I am slowly but surely getting there.  I was lucky enough to join her at her house this time so it was a fun change....I just loved the way they turned out!  Lucky for me, she isn't on the move yet.  I think I say this each and every time I take a 6 months pictures but it is definately my favorite age. 
You may remember this cuties, and be able to recognize her from her newborn pictures, but if not, you will surely be able to tell which family she comes from as she looks just like her brother and sister...
This is for a special friend of the family...she just loved all the hats at her newborn session so her mom bought her another one...


And how adorable is she???

Thanks for choosing me to capture her 6 month pictures...hoping our next time we meet we can do a cake smash for her big 1 year birthday!

Sneak Peak - {C} Family

I have been so swamped lately that my blog has been slacking, but, I know this family is anxiously waiting on their sneak peak.  I love on-location photo shoots and get even more excited when they have a great prop like this barn.  I will let the pictures speak for themselves....Aren't they the cutest kids ever!

Thanks {C} family for choosing me to capture your family, it was great meeting your beautiful family!

Sneak Peak-{E} Girls

These are some of THE cutest girls I have ever gotten to capture! It was such a beautiful day for this session and the leaves were just starting to turn colors, I love this time of year!  After this wind today though, I have to say, that was sure short lived :(
{E} was so cute, had lots of questions and loves rocks! 

And Miss {N} was all smiles, you would swear she was bribed (tee/hee)...

And lastly, a couple of the two of them....

Thanks for letting me meet your beautiful girls....they were so fun to get to know, and they definately have their mom's fun personality. Thanks {J}, it was great to see you again!

Sneak Peak - {M} Family

I always like it when I get to see the same families every year, and this family is no exception!  Each and every time I see them, they come perfectly dressed and cute as ever...although {B} is handsome :)  Last time I saw them, the littlest was turning 1...oh how much she has grown, I just love her little piggy tails.
Thanks {M} family for letting me capture another year older!  Before we know it, they will be doing their senior pictures ;)

{C} 2013 Red Lake County Central Senior

I have to definately say that I had a blast with {C}...she brought her friend along and it went so smoothly.  We had some great locations and some great results if I do say so...I won't make you wait to see the pictures as they are amazing!

My favorite image of her, has got to the be the lower, middle image...how stunning!!  Thanks {C} for letting me capture you, {A} and your dog, I had a blast ;)

{K} 2013 Red Lake County Central Senior

Just a quick sneak peak...I know his mom is probably anxiously waiting.  His mom is another great teacher in my girls' school...I am seeing a trend here, and I love it!  We sure have some great teachers that is for sure!
One really neat note..he just had to have a picture with his cat, and I don't blame him as he has had this cat since he was 4, definately a great memory.


Thanks {K} for letting me shoot your senior session...hope you like them!

Sneak Peak - Princess {T}

Lucky, lucky is what I call my job...I am so blessed to meet up with old friends/teachers.  This little girls grandma was one of my teachers and Taya also has been lucky enough to have her in her classroom some last year.  Our whole school is so blessed to have her help with a great beginning to our children's lives.  And then her daughter...I remember her when she was just little.. I can not wait to see if {T} will grow up to look just like her mom, beautiful inside and out!
This is definately a fun sneak peak!  There is just nothing like the fun expressions of a 6 month old..

And just a perfect smile, I would have to say that 6 months is my ultimate favorite age to capture ;)

And last, but not least, a little baby chub.  I love, love, love me some rolls....

Thanks {W} family for choosing me to capture her 6 month pictures, hope I get to catch up again sometime.

{L} 2013 Red Lake County Central Senior

Just a quick sneak peak for {L}, his mom has patiently been waiting for a glance at his amazing pictures.  We had such a quick, but successful shoot....without further a-do.

Thanks so much for choosing me to capture {L}'s senior photo's, makes me feel really old when I really remember the day he was born, seems like just yesterday!

{A & A} 2013 Red Lake County Central Senior

Just a quick sneak peak for these beautiful seniors...I have been busy with seniors the last month so trying to play catch-up.  What a fun session this was...my first twins, and happy to say they were amazing to work with.  I definately grew to know their personalities which will make it a lot more when editing their pictures.  Without further ado...meet {A} and {A}.

Thanks for choosing me to capture your senior pictures...I had a blast!

{Z} - 2013 Red Lake County Central Senior

This session just makes me realize that my kids are going to be grown and out of the house before I know it.  I started babysitting {Z} when he was just a newborn and watched him up until I met Nick.  I am lucky enough to call him my family....I remember just giggling at some of the funny stuff he would do (I better not add it here or he would get mad)  Now he has grown into a great young man and I can't wait to see what his future holds for him!!
Thanks {Z} for choosing me for your senior pictures, I can't believe the difference from the last time I got to capture you and {B}.  They were one of my very first sessions and I hope one day I get to capture his own family ;)

{E} - 2013 Red Lake County Central Senior

This is a long overdue sneak peak...I met up with a couple of friends a couple weeks ago and we traveled the country looking for some fun spots.  I would have to say we definately succeeded in that department.  The pictures speak for themselves!

Thanks {E} for choosing me for your senior pictures...hope you have a blast on your last year!

Sneak Peak - {B}

Some of you may have seen a pre-sneak peak on Facebook already of this beautiful girl but if not..here goes.  This is picture heavy but for as hard as it was to narrow down the pictures for your gallery I think I did pretty well at only this many.  I just love when sessions are that hard to pick ;)
We are so incredibly blessed to have this wonderful family in our lives, they have done so much for us in the years that Nick has been working for them that we could never thank them enough.  I was so excited when they called and asked me to capture some pictures of {B}.  And it was so much more personal, when I know how hard our husbands (and now their kids) work to get these fields in the ground and harvested.  And the next day after this session...all that hard work was gone and in the bins for storage.
Without further rambling, meet {B}...isn't she gorgeous!

And then...one of my favorite spots!

Thanks again for choosing me...it was great to catch up, you would think we would be better at it!  Hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

{H} Family Sneak Peak

One thing that I find very, very fun for me is going to clients houses to shoot a session.  I like that it is a lot more personal that way and it is so amazing how much fun their yards are with all the different landscaping they do.  A fun, fun change of scenery for sure!  I have captured this family quite a few times now, but this is the first time at their house, or even outside for that matter.  Each and every time I get to see beautiful {D} she has changed so much.  Last year I could only get her to smile after asking her to tickle her own belly..this year, what a change!  She was such a poser and was so much fun ;)  Makes my heart just smile when she is smiling because she is just so happy with life...couldn't ask for more.
This is definately a personal picture as her daddy is a farmer so we got to capture her in her normal setting..

And who could pass up these!  A special one with mom... <3 it!  And then we couldn't leave out a tractor picture with dad ;)

Thanks {H} family for letting me invade your yard...I say it everytime I see you that we really need to get together soon, this time I really mean it.

Classy S turns 1!

Something I have come to realize is how much fun sessions are when the mom brings some fun props along...this mom never ceases to amaze me with her awesome cake/cupcake making she does.  No doubt she is artsy though as she is a graphic designer by day and super mom at night!  I wish I had some of that talent.  This post is picture heavy but just plane and simple couldn't help it ;)  I hope you see why.
Loved the bright colors and matching flower..she had so much fun playing with the flowers.

There are a lot of times I think that the siblings I capture look alike, but I tell you what, I have watched big brother P grow from 6 months and he looked just like her!

Love this <3!!  He has changed so much in the last half year since I have seen him, he loved pictures this time!

Couldn't pass up the cakesmash...

And last but not least, I really, really like when siblings get to join it...

Thanks {M} Family!!  Can not wait to see you again soon....

Another 1 year old...

I was so glad this family wanted to wait for it to get nice out to do a session outside.  All of their birthday's are around February and March so we usually just miss the nice weather for outdoor pictures.  It was so much fun to take their pictures this year too because they actually all remember me, which made it so easy, quick and painless for them.  It also helps just to capture them the way they are!

I think they all look similar but the older they get...the more they get their own features...

We will go youngest to oldest this time as little {E} turned 1!   You may remember him from my favorite 3 month session ever!!


And then there is Mr. {J}...I think he looks like he is always thinking about something ;)

And gorgeous {K}, I swear this girl never, ever takes a bad picture!! 

And lastly, we had to try get the two boys in their bibs...love it!

Thanks {M} Family!!  Please come over and visit anytime!

And baby {K} makes 3...

This is the first time I have gotten to capture this family, but had met their mom along the way at some of the Thirty-One Parties I consulted.  These are some of the cutest kids ever and how well behaved.  Our session got a little long for them as the newest addition was so happy and content just staying awake and taking in all that was going on around her.  I have to say what a perfect baby she is though, as she let me move her around so much and never made a peep, the whole while being awake!
Here are the older siblings...All of their eyes were just amazing!

And I just love {C}'s curls!

And last but not least...the new addition.  She was only 3 weeks old, but as alert and strong as a 4 month old!  I got her to sleep for about 20 minutes and loved what I got...
I just had to share one to show how beautiful her eyes are too...

Thanks {C} Family for choosing me to capture your perfect kids!  I hope we get to meet up again soon...

And the littlest turns 1!!

I just love being back outside taking pictures!  I definately couldn't have asked for a more perfect day to capture these 3 boys...and what great boys they were.  We even got to do the cakesmash outside which was so fun....without further ado.  This is a picture heavy post but couldn't resist posting this many.


Aren't his eyes just the best...I remember how much I liked them last time.

And this little guy was going to make me work at the start...but once we got his shark involved he was such a ham!


All the boys sure have their own look...cute!
And little E turned 1!

I couldn't resist this before and after...he was the first one to use my favorite vintage prop ever so I had to make sure we got one a year later on it too.
I really like that the older boys got involved in the cake smash...I think we could've had some pretty messy kids if we had let them keep going!

Thanks M family for letting me capture your boys again...it is so much fun watching these kids grow!
