~B~ Maternity {Southern Minnesota Maternity Photographer}

It was another beautiful night in southern Minnesota and I had the pleasure of capturing this momma and her growing belly. Little princess is set to arrive next month and I think they are more the ready to meet her!! B was such a good sport and looked stunning!! 

She is just glowing...

So, little Peanut is going to be pretty surprised when she is no longer the center of attention ;-) 

 They are to cute!

Waiting on baby Allison ♥

I love this creek! 

I'm sorry, isn't ;-) 

Thank you B and A for allowing me to capture these moments for you!! I can't wait for your wedding in January and to meet your little princess!! 

~B~ Family {Southern Minnesota Family Photographer}

Due to little K being born 6 weeks prior to this shoot, we ended up doing a family portrait session verses a newborn. Let me tell you, this little one was the most well behaved baby I have ever worked with. He was content, sleepy and just overall perfect. Plus, this family is gorgeous, they  made my job easy! 

Gorgeous, right??

I love Momma and baby shots

So happy. 

They are all so photogenic! 


Then he just fell asleep and stayed there, it was amazing!

Perfect little lashes. 

Loving the summer air. 

Just chillin'

I seriously could have shot this all day long. 

Baby lips ♥

The light that evening was beautiful. 

And they got in the water! 

I absolutely LOVE this shot!!

So much love. 

Thank you so much to the B family for having me capture these moments of your little man and your family! I hope to work with you again in the future!!

~Baby M 7 days new~ {Southern Minnesota Newborn Photographer}

Oh little M was so comfy with her mommy, she had to be evicted :-) We waited patiently for her arrival and the time was actually perfect. A beautiful hot day so I could have the windows open and have a nice breeze with white noise to sooth her. No matter what I tried...she would not sleep. I pulled out all of my tricks and this little princess did not want to miss a thing. Which, according to her parents, was the longest she had been awake since coming home. We went with it, and got some beautiful photos of this angel. 

She just wasn't sure of this whole photo thing...

She was making some little squeaking noises during this shot that just made me smile. 

So comfy. 

I love getting the little details. 

Oh baby yawns, how I love them!

So serious. 

She seemed pretty happy in the box. 

Tiny toes ♥

Thank you C & T for allowing me to capture your little peanut! I can't wait for your wedding in November!!

~S~ Wedding June 27, 2015 {Southern Minnesota Wedding Photographer}

I love shooting weddings outside. I love lakes. This wedding was a win-win! I was so excited to be out by the water and watch this lovely couple say I do under the trees. It was hot, but there was a small breeze from the lake and thankfully there was some shade. 
I had a lot of fun with this couple and their bridal party. They were up for anything and you could just feel the joy and happiness that they were feeling. 

This couple is too cute, and so in love!

The details:
Bride's dress: Bridal Gallery of Sioux Falls
Bridesmaid's dresses: David's Bridal

Ceremony location: Lake Shetek Lodge Currie, MN
Reception: Key Largo Restaurant Currie, MN  
Cake: Taylor'd Cakes 
Decorations: Bride, her sisters and mom

I love blue shoes 

It is so fun for me to try to get different angles during a corset lace-up. 

The bride wore her mother's veil. 

I love the anticipation!

Oh emotion...

The peacock feathers were beautiful!

So happy!

We had some fun with the bridal party!

At first the chain link fence annoyed me...then I thought...we don't have a brick wall...why not??

This reception was so fun!

The bride surprised her new husband with a personal dance!

This was L's attitude all night, fun, light hearted and HAPPY! 

Thank you A & L for allowing me to capture your day! I had so much fun with you guys and I wish you so much joy and happiness in the years to come!!
