Life with the U Family {MN Lifestyle Family Photographer}

When Dawn contacted me last month to come to her house and photograph her family, I was more than thrilled. It was my chance to get back to my roots of photographing life as it happens. I had so much fun photographing these awesome kids. They were so full of life and you can see that in these photographs. I hope that these help the U family remember this day for a very long time!

These sisters are just beautiful.  They clearly love each other.  A sister is such an awesome gift to be given.

Brother Jake had to tickle them to make them laugh.  Little brothers :)

Jake is all boy.  He and I hung out in his car themed room.  He's such a handsome little guy!

Big sister Gracie is going to break some hearts someday.  Isn't she stunning?

And Riley, those freckles and blonde hair?  She'll be sure to turn heads.

Jake has already won my heart, only the first of many I'm sure!

We call this "blue steel".  LOL!

Gorgeous mama with her beautiful kiddos.  

Jake was getting some major air here.  Hopefully I didn't set a bad example by telling him to jump on his bed!
And you can't not get some footsie shots when kids are involved.  I just love feet.
I had such a great time with this beautiful family yesterday.  It felt good to photograph emotion.  It was a great way to start off my day.  I even managed to score some Girl Scout cookies from the little ladies!  YUM!

Frank {Minneapolis Baby Photographer}

Frank is 6 months and boy oh boy is he the happiest baby I've ever met. Seriously, smiley as can be. There is just something about toothless baby smiles that could cure even the worst of days. Thanks for the fun Frank!

I told ya!

Beautiful mama and her sweet boy.

Look at those baby blues!

Num, num.

Hello there!

Sweet baby parts.  Love em!

Sweet Ryan {Minneapolis, MN Baby Photographer}

Last time I saw sweet Ryan he was just an itty bitty. He had a full head of hair then and he sure didn't disappoint this time either! He was all smiles and so darn adorable!

Awww, how sweet!

LOVE this shot!  Look at those eyes!

Big brother Avery had to get in on the action too.  He's a vibrant and energetic little guy.  He was enamored with my camera.  Looks like we've got a budding photog on our hands!

What I've been up! {Minnesota Child and Family Photographer}

A lot of photographers complain that January and February are slow months for them.  And, for the most part, they truly are.  But holy cow, I have been booked solid all of January and through February!  It's been amazing and I feel truly lucky for these amazing clients.  Being that I've been booked solid with sessions, family birthdays, our new homeschool adventure and oh so much more, I've been slacking big time on the previews.  So today is the day. 

First up, Gavin.  He turned 18 months old and sadly our year together has come to an end.  These sessions are always bittersweet.  It makes me happy to watch them grow into little people, but it's hard to say goodbye.  He's turned into such a handsome little fella.
