Frank {Minneapolis Baby Photographer}

One of my favorite locations here in the city is the Lyndale Rose Garden on Lake Harriet. It is just full of fun spots to shoot. This past weekend I met the H family out there for Frank's 9 month session. It's been so fun to watch this family grow, first with Finn and now with Frank. 

Just look at how adorable these two boys are?  Finn clearly loves his little bro!

And big boy Frank.  What a happy baby!

Mama and her boy.

Finn!  What a smile!

Beautiful family.

Seriously, their smiles are infectious!

Such a big kid standing there!

At the end, Finn just couldn't NOT go into this awesome puddle with his super cool puddle jumpers.  What a fun time!

6 Months {St. Paul MN Baby Photographer}

This preview has been a week and a half in the making! I just knew this whole session would be to die for and I was so excited to get the images on my computer. Of course, life took hold of my time and it had to wait until today, but it was worth it. This little guy is simply adorable!  And not to mention the location, Como Zoo, was amazing!

Ronan is 6 months now and a pure joy.  

Big sis Vivian is still ever so loving to her little bro.  I just love this shot!

This shot rocks my world.  Just look at those pouty lips and big blue eyes!  LOVE!


My Favorite Baby {White Bear Lake Baby Photographer}

Yesterday was a beautiful day here in MN. Perfect weather if you ask me. My sister and I originally planned to take some pics of my sweetest nephew for his 6 month milestone, so when we headed to Tamarack Nature Center with the kiddos to play, I decided to snap a few there. 

This was Chan's first experience in the sand.  I'd say he makes a perfect beach baby!  Look at that belly!

If you ask me, there is nothing better than baby toes in the sand!

Then we wandered off and attempted a few "posed" shots and Chan was not having it!  He's got the most pathetic cry face.  It's too cute for words!

Later on, we headed home with our huge bunch of kids (mostly mine of course) and attempted a few more pictures.  Look, he's smiling!!!

And a few more inside since he seemed pretty happy again!

And a color picture for good measure.  My sweet Annika didn't want me to turn the pictures black and white because then nobody would know how beautifully blue Chandler's eyes were.  Such a sweetheart!

My sister and I sure create adorable kids, that's for sure.  We are incredibly lucky mamas!


Gianna {Minnesota Newborn Photographer}

Several months back, a childhood friend of mine purchased a MSP gift card for her expecting sister.  I grew up with Missy and her sister Corinne, so it was beyond exciting to get to meet this little princess.  Meet Gianna.  This little lady was wide awake for nearly 2 hours but that's alright, her big dark blue eyes were stunning.  

Beautiful mom Corinne, and her sweet little princess.

Love this dreamy shot!

Goldy is so sweet with her new baby and very protective too!  Dogs are the best!

Pink, pink and more pink!

Oh look, she fell asleep for a minute, just one though LOL!

Daddy's hands.

The sweet new family!

Congrats to Corinne and Ryan and the rest of the family!  Gianna is absolutely perfect!

Growing {MN Child and Family Photographer}

On Sunday I had the pleasure of hanging out with some adorable little guys. I've been shooting Ryan since he was just itty bitty and now he's a whopping 9 months old! Seriously, where does the time go! 

They are the cutest little family and they are all so photogenic, so it's always a real treat when I get to shoot them!

Happy boy!  It took some cajoling but we got some super sweet smiles!

And we can't forget big bro Avery.  He recently turned 4!  What a funny, outgoing little guy.  He is quick with a joke, that's for sure!

Hehe, I had to throw this one in for good measure!  I just love crying babies!

Little JCrew model?  I think so!
