Genevieve: Class of 2013 {Minnesota Senior Portrait Photography}

Tonight I got to shoot the most incredible young lady.  Not only is she absolutely stunning, but she's smart, sweet, goofy, talented and FAMILY!

Genevieve was in town to tour some local colleges (sadly St. Olaf, my alma mater was not on the agenda) and she wanted to meet up and have her senior portraits taken.  Genevieve and her family are from Sheboygan Falls, WI, so we needed to make this work.  It was a tough squeeze getting her in after coming home from California, but I am so glad we did.  This session was amazing.  She is absolutely perfect.  

Meet Genevieve:

Umm, all time favorite!

I told you she was goofy, right here she was thinking about chipmunks and it made her laugh.  I love that.  So sweet and geniune.  She's got a great smile!

And my favorite part?  Genevieve is a budding photographer!  I love that about her.  She's got a great eye and a bright future.  

Genevieve, it was fantastic seeing you tonight.  You are an amazing young girl who will surely do big things in life.  Here's to the class of 2013!

Chubby Cheeks {St. Paul Baby and Family Photographer}

This preview is much awaited I'm sure, but I had to take a moment to post these photographs of adorable Danielle and her lovely family!

Danielle and her beautiful mama.

Big brother AJ.  I love this kid!

I love this shot. 

So sweet!

Ahhh, so sweet!

Sweet baby toes and baby booty!


One More One {St. Anthony Main Minneapolis Baby Photographer}

In the last week, I have photographed 3 one year olds! Crazy! Once again, I've watched sweet Henry grow since he was just a few weeks old.  I know I've said this a million times, but this is one of the bittersweet parts of this job, having to say goodbye to such handsome little guys like this:

So happy.

1 year {Eden Prairie Child and Family Photographer}

Times like this are bittersweet, I have been photographing this beautiful family since their first was 3 months old.  And now their sweet Ellie is turning 1!  Where does the time go?  I just love watching families grow but at the same time I know that my time with them draws to a close as the kids get older.  I can only hope that once their milestones are reached they will still call me to capture their family year by year.  I truly have one of the best jobs in the world, especially when I get to see cuties like Ellie through my lens.

Big brother Jake.  Such a handsome fella!

We've done a shot like this at virtually all their sessions.  I just may have to do a collage!

And no first birthday would be complete without cake!  I just love cake smashes.

Happy Birthday Ellie!


Growing {Chisago City Family Photographer}

Check out my oldest friend Molly's growing family! I just can't believe baby Charlie is 1 year old now! 

Sweet Lucy, so spunky and adorable.

Mr. Blue Steel himself, I mean Harrison!

And Mr. Charlie, such a sweet and easy going kiddo.

Wowza, future heartbreaker!
