~M&J~ She said YES! {Southern Minnesota Engagement and Wedding Photographer}

When M told me they wanted their engagement photos at a baseball field, I was so excited! Unfortunately, our original location, The Irish Yard, was occupied the night we planned on their session. We improvised and thanks to some calls we were able to use Legion Field
We had so much fun, and the light was so dreamy! I can't wait for their 2016 wedding!! 

They are so sweet! 

We made the breeze work for us! 

When we got into the field, I had a ton of ideas! 

I love this shot! It came out exactly as I envisioned! 

Ah, flare! 

Too cute! 

I love this shot!

These two were so fun, and put up with my antics ;-) I am looking forward to their wedding in 2016 and working with M's sister on her senior portraits!!

~S~ Family & fur babies {Southern Minnesota Family Photograher}

This lovely couple won my donated session at the Tracy Chamber of Commerce banquet this winter. When ~C~ called she wanted me to capture moments with their fur baby before she decided to cross the rainbow bridge. See, their beloved pet was in her golden ages and wasn't walking well anymore. I was happy to capture these photos for them. 

How cool is this car?! 

They are too cute! 

I love the age showing on her face, and she is so sweet! 

And a Harley! We had some fun with their "toys" 

I love the light on this one! 

Such a sweet family. I had a lot of fun with them!

~Fresh Baby B~ {Southern Minnesota Fresh 24 Photographer}

Can I just say how happy I am to have taken this step with my photography. I have been thinking about this for some time now, and I finally just took the plunge. I was amazed at how many people are interested in these sessions and it makes me even more excited. 

Meet the first "Fresh 24" session family! It was such an honor capture these precious new moments of baby B and his family. Big brother wasn't so sure about his new title, but he will be a great super hero brother when he is ready! Just being in the room with them brought back so many memories of when I had my babies and I loved every moment. 
These first few days of baby's life are so important. I hope to capture many more sessions like this one!!

So tiny

Baby yawns are the best! 

Quality time with daddy

Big Brother B!

This took some coaxing, but I love the look on his face!! 

Welcome to the world, B!

Tiny fingers

These are the moments I love capturing

So precious! 

I love capturing all the details. We don't remember things like this years later, and these are the first days with our littles. So important to document! 
Contact me NOW to book your Fresh 24 session! I will need adequate time to schedule around due dates. They don't stay little forever! Check out the Fresh 24 and Newborn Investment page for more information on these wonderful sessions!

~K~ TMB Class of 2015 Senior {Southern Minnesota Senior Photographer}

K is one of our foreign exchange students here at Tracy High School. She is from Norway, and I loved hearing about her travels and the traditions of her home country. Senior portraits isn't something she would ever have the chance to experience at home, so her host family decided that she should have the whole American senior experience! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect way to wrap up Class of 2015 portraits! 

She was a natural! 

One of the first shots, amazing right?!

I just love the drama of this one. 

Right before this photo, we were picking cockle burs out of her sweater. Welcome to Minnesota! 

Just stunning. 

The light! Ah!

I rarely had to tell her how to pose, she just knew. 

Had to get her TMB sports stuff in there! 

Have I mentioned my love of evening light? 

Ok, so I have wanted to get a shot like this for awhile. K had the hair, and was up for trying. I don't know how many times she shook her head, but she was game! I actually like this. 

Thank you K for allowing me to capture your American senior experience! I had so much fun with you and I hope you did too! Good luck in all you do! I hope a piece of Tracy is with you always ♥

Class of 2016~ Now is YOUR time!! Call me today to book your session before my schedule fills up!! It is never too early to think about senior portraits!
