My own :) {Minneapolis Child and Family Photographer}

My "baby" turned 6 last week. That number baffles me because it really doesn't seem all that long ago that she was chubby, almost bald and oh so new. Now she is a walking, talking, skinny legged, freckled face girl with a full head of red hair.

She's funny, smart and loving and I'm a very proud mama. She's off to first grade in just a few short weeks and it leaves me wondering where the heck the time went? Why does it have to go so fast? It's a question parents have been asking for thousands of years yet it continues to happen and it truly is bittersweet.

So enough babbling and here's a little sneak peak of our session.

Of course, I had to snap some pics of the other two as well.

Bianca is 4 1/2 (my girls are 18 months apart to the day). 

And Bennett, he's almost 3 1/2!  My baby boy:

And last but certainly not least, a picture of the 3.  This is a painful shot to get if you have more than one kid, LOL!  

Annika, thanks for making me a mama 6 years ago, you have made me so proud and I love you oh so much!


Little Girls {Twin Cities MN Baby Photographer}

We are on an Annie kick here in the Sauer household and while Mrs. Hannigan may despise little girls, I sure do love all things girly.  Little boys are lovely and fun too, but girls are just so much fun with all their outfit changes and little bows.  Little Whitney is 6 months now and she is just as cute as can be!

Baby booty!  Nothin' better than a cute little butt!

 3 kids 3 and under!  Sounds all too familiar.  

 The cute little family!

Today I met up with Cala and her beautiful family for a Mamarazzi's Rock Workshop. It was so fun spending the day with her, showing her the ropes and shooting her ADORABLE kiddos. With the Mamarazzi's Rock Workshop, I shoot the family like I would during a normal session so the "Mamarazzi" can see how I work and then she can have some images as well to hang on her walls. So here is a nice little sneak peek from the day. Thanks for having me Cala, it was such a blast!

The ever adorable Seaden, he was such a little love bug.  He kept giving me hugs and wanting me to hold him.  Talk about melting a girl's heart!  

And the oh so stunning Sophie.  Such a little beauty.

The beautiful family.

Believe it or not, this field/hill was in their backyard.  Color me jealous!

What's up there?

Checking out the rainstorm.

Beautiful mamarazzi and her sweet baby boy!

Newness {Minnesota Newborn Photographer}

Today I got the chance to meet up with a lovely new family who just welcomed their sweet Baby Emmett into their family just earlier this week! He also happens to be the grandson of my kiddo's preschool teacher so it was great to go out there and see where she spends her free time. I brought the girls with and they had a blast swimming in the lake, jumping on the trampoline and swinging from the flying bar! It was a nice afternoon. Oh, and did I mention that Emmett was the most perfect newborn I've ever photographed? He slept the whole time, didn't make a peep and is oh so yummy! Just check him out!

Itty bitty baby smiles make me happy!

This adorable playhouse resides on the property and I just had to put him in front of it.  So stinkin' cute!

Isn't he just perfect?

Gorgeous mama and her sweet boy.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!  So peaceful!

Still passed out.

The sweet family of 3!

Congrats you three, you are beautiful and so lucky!  I wish you all the luck on your new adventures.

Big boy now! {Lino Lakes MN Child Photographer}

I am in shock mode lately with all these babies I started shooting a year ago are getting so big and grown up now. Gavin is no exception, he turned one a few weeks ago and today we celebrated with pictures! He's cute as ever and full of smiles! He made my job easy.

This shot cracks me up!  I don't think he's all that excited about the birthday hat :)

Happy Birthday big boy!
