Last night was the most perfect night for a session, especially a beautiful session with a great family by the lake. I couldn't have asked for anything more! Enjoy!

Isn't she just a beautiful little doll?

Ahhh, I love the golden hour.


The lovely family!

Mama is having another baby this winter, I just love this cute shot with the police car, dad is a police man so it was fitting.

I met up this weekend with an awesome family who my hubby and I have known since before kiddos came into the picture.  It's always fun to photograph friends and their beautiful families, but wow, this family is gorgeous!  Just check them out!

Miss Taylor, she's a sweet little diva.  I adore her!

Cole, he's looking like a ladies man here!


Holy sweetness!

I told you they were gorgeous!

Look at those eyes!

Beautiful mama and dad!

Last time I hung out with Mr. Henry, he was just an itty bitty baby.  I have to admit, I feel mighty proud with this family as they had a terrible first experience with Henry's original newborn photos, which led them to me.  He was the most perfect newborn, quiet and sleepy and as a 6 month old, he was happy and smiley.  A photographer couldn't ask for a better baby!

We met up last weekend at Tamarack Nature Center in WBL, one of my most favorite locations.  It's peaceful, beautiful and provides so many different backdrops for outdoor sessions.

Wowza, look at his baby blues.

Henry isn't quite sitting yet so this log was the perfect prop for this guy.

Mom, Shauna, is so beautiful and you can tell she just loves her baby boy.

Such a stylin' family!

Sooooo happy!

I seriously love this shot.  It is classic!

Awesome, awesome outfit!

Can't wait to see him at 1 year!


Extreme cuteness ahead {White Bear Lake MN Child Photographer}

Warning: Extreme cuteness ahead.

Tristan is 9 months and I can't even believe he's so close to turning 1. It's amazing how quickly time flies. And, I thought he was a beautiful little boy when he was a newborn, but man does this boy get cuter and cuter. Tristan, mom and dad and I headed out to Tamarack Nature Center in our old stomping grounds, it's such a beautiful location and was the perfect backdrop for this lovely overcast day.

Just look at those baby blues!

I just love this shot, his little tongue sticking out!

Man, isn't he just adorable?  That blue wall has nothin' on his eyes!


Oh My Beautiful... {Lino Lakes MN Child Photographer}

Days like yesterday are bittersweet, I get to see a sweet little lady at her one year milestone, but that means that our year together has come to an official end. Laura was no exception. She has been a sweet doll since day 1 and I just adore every session I have with her. This was by far one of my favorites, she is such a beautiful little lady!

What a pretty smile!  And mom always picks out the best outfits for her.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one!

And beautiful mom Camille FINALLY got in some shots.  I'm so happy she did, I just love this shot.  So timeless and beautiful.

I made this hat!  She looks fabulous in it and it now belongs to sweet Laura.  Enjoy baby girl!

I love this one too, it's seriously a favorite of all time.  She is so beautiful.

It was so lovely to see sweet Laura and Camille again, hopefully I will get to see them again very soon!

It seems like just yesterday that I photographed Jake when he was 3 months old, now I'm photographing little sister Ellie and she's already 3 months old!  Crazy how time flies.

I just love watching this family grow and change and they truly feel like friends.

Little kiddo feet!

So sweet, holding her hand!

The beautiful family.

Big brother Jake.

Smiley girl (wearing a hat I made!).

Jake vegging out watching Mickey Mouse.  I just love this shot!  Such a real picture :)

Ellie veggin' in mama's lap too!

Ahhh, so sweet.
