~M~ Family Newborn Session {Southern Minnesota Family Photographer}

I don't normally shoot newborns. I have a wonderful friend in Windom, MN who is AWESOME (Red Barn Photography). However, I won't pass up an opportunity to work with new little bundles especially when they are a returning client. 

~M~ is so precious! You forget how tiny they are when your own grow so quickly. I had many ideas but we were fighting the weather. A storm was trying to come and there was a breeze. But we made it work and got some really precious shots. I don't shoot the "normal" posed newborn shots. I like to incorporate the whole family and do more of a lifestyle shoot. The family interacting with their new member. 

I love this scarf! 

Oh how I love little baby fuzz

It's the details...

Lovely family!
Proud big sister 

He was getting hungry and was not happy toward the end...

I was so happy to work with this family again! I love watching their children grow! I am looking forward to capturing little ~M~'s first year of life!

Remember returning clients you receive 10% off sessions fees ALWAYS! 

Sometimes just for fun...{Southern Minnesota Portrait Photographer}

The thing I love about photography is learning. There is always something to learn! I am a natural light photographer and seek out beautiful light. However, when I shoot weddings sometimes the light isn't ideal in churches so I decided to purchase a softbox and learn how to use my speedlight (off camera flash). I posted a model call for a fun short shoot and this lovely lady's mother contacted me. I am so glad she did! Though conditions weren't what I wanted we still made it work and I now know how to use my flash!

Thank you ladies! I had so much fun! I hope to work with you again!

 I like this one both in black and white and color

She does fierce well!

July is almost here and I have limited availability! July Minis are on! Contact me to book!

~S~ Family {Southern Minnesota Family Portrait Photographer}

I love living in an area where there are so many fellow photographers. That may sound funny to you, but to me it is a big support group. We talk to each other, we bounce ideas off of each other and refer clients to one another. It's best to work together for success, I say!

One of these wonderful photographers I have met here is Heidi Swanson of Heidi Swanson Photography. She and I have a similar eye and she has the personality that I love to be around!

 I am always behind the camera it would be nice to have a family portrait with my newest addition, our daughter. And Heidi was in the same situation. Why not swap? Heidi was up first!

These kids aren't used to the camera or anything ;-)

My favorite!

Such a sweet family!

I had so much fun with this family and I know my family portraits will be fantastic!

Thank you Heidi!!

It isn't too late to take advantage of the June Special! 5 edited images on a disk with a basic session!!
