~D&T~ Mom and Me Session {Southern Minnesota Family Photographer}

These two hold a special place in my heart, and always will. I met D almost 11 years ago while working at Target in Fergus Falls, MN. She was one of my first friends. She and I just had a connection, we are so much alike and can say anything to each other. I mean, we can literally say anything and know that the other won't be mad. Friendship like that doesn't come along very often. Her little man, who isn't so little anymore, would come to our office at work and sit with me and color. The last time I saw him, he was so small. Now he is as tall as me! 
We had so much fun when they came to visit, taking photos and playing baseball in our backyard. I just love them so much! 
 Now, all these years later, she has found her prince and he lives in Georgia. They are off to start a new chapter in their lives. I will miss her dearly, but I know we will still be in touch. Picking up right where we left off every time. 
I love you D & T!! 

So sweet! 

Look at those smiles! 

There is nothing like the love of mother and son

He's so grown up! Stop it! 

I love getting light through the trees!! 

T wanted shots on the tires, we made it work! 

I'll be honest, this was T's idea. I like it, the dramatic effect. I don't know what they were looking at though :-) 

Oh how I love you two! Safe travels to your new home and always know you have a place to stay here in Minnesota!!

Time for a "fresh" start! New offer~ Fresh 24 Sessions! {Southern Minnesota Newborn and Fresh 24 Photographer}

I have thought long and hard about this. I love babies. I love capturing babies in their natural state. I was looking over the photos I got in the hospital when my daughter was born, and imagine that, I am not in any of them! This bothered me.

I am now offering "Fresh 24" sessions. These sessions will take place within 24 to 48 hours of your child's birth in the hospital room. It will be of the new bundle in their bassinet, the room, the parents with baby, each parent with baby, siblings, little details of the room, etc. Things you wouldn't think to take yourself as you are so tired after having a baby. Let me do it for you.

Here are the details:

I would arrive at the hospital and just start shooting. Very lifestyle session-like. You would receive:
 a 10x8 hardcover book of images chosen by you
Private online album of the photos (mostly black and white) for you to share with friends and family

$150.00 plus tax and travel fees

Sessions must be booked well in advance of your due date. I will keep days open around in case of baby making up their own timeline, which they tend to do!

Newborn special~ book a newborn session WITH a Fresh 24 and receive BOTH for $325.00 (normally $375 booked separately) and receive a book from each. See Fresh 24 and Newborn Investment for details.

Now for the fun part! For the first TWO fresh 24 sessions booked they receive their session for $100.00 a $50 discount! Photos must be able to be used for marketing purposes. ***Spots have been taken*** 

Contact me SOON!! I want to capture some sweet new baby moments!

J&D New littles {Southern Minnesota Newborn Photographer}

I have to say that shooting newborns is growing on me. Sure, they take more time then the average session, you  may or may not get peed on, and it takes A LOT of patience. But, I have really enjoyed snuggling these littles and it quiets my uterus down, lol.
These little girls are too cute. And their brother was so well behaved, I was really impressed! I had so much fun with this sweet family! Like I have mentioned before, I do a lot of shots with the family because a newborn is an addition to the family unit. I don't use a lot of props or anything, it is more about the babies in their moment. They aren't little forever.

So sweet

Definitely a favorite!

Such a proud big brother

These two, so precious!

~D~ did not want to sleep. She gave me a run for my money. 

~J~ was very much interested in what I was doing!

I love baby smiles

Put them together...out cold. 

Sweet baby toes!

~M~ is 9 months! {Southern Minnesota Children's Photographer}

Oh this little man. I have so enjoyed watching him grow in front of my lens. He is turning into such a little charmer! I was so happy we were able to take his 9 month photos outside! Yeah for spring! I am ready for more sessions outside!

Oh those cheeks!

He sure loves his wagon!

Those eyes, too cute!

He was not thrilled with me at this point, but still looks good for the camera!

He is saying, "seriously? are we done?" Yes, sweet man, until your one year session!
