~L~ Family an evening on the farm {Southern Minnesota family photographer}

Let me tell you about this family right here. K and I met through our sons last year at tball. The boys quickly became great friends and K and I soon followed. She became my Beachbody coach in April and it has brought us even closer. 
Photographing them was so easy, I mean, look at them! They are just beautiful. I had so much fun with them touring their farm and finding locations (there are a TON) and just watching them enjoy their time together. 

One of the first shots and it was perfection from there!

So beautiful! 

Just before this shot, little C (middle) did not want to take a photo. Then she jumped in between her brothers and I did get some outtakes, but so glad I got this gem! Oh they are too cute!

So happy! 

Sometimes the shot isn't predicted or posed. C wasn't feeling it at the moment and K was having a heart to heart with her. You can tell what a great mom K is by this photo. Just simply loving her daughter and her spunkiness, when she could have been getting mad. I love this moment. 

Dad's pretty strong!

Such handsome men K has!

It's the little things in life. 

I wanted a shot of the family walking together on the farm, well, it didn't turn out that way. And that's ok! This is them, this is life. 

We had to get the cows in there!

Big C is so sweet! What a great big brother! 

 I love middle C. He is so much like my little man and to watch the two of them together it is really special. Lifelong friends I'm sure of it! 

Oh little C, you are truly one of a kind! 

And it all started right here. These two are so cute. Watching them interact you can really feel the love. 

Thank you L family!! I had so much fun with all of you! Can't wait to do it again! 

~Skater Girl A~ {Southern Minnesota Children's Photographer}

I love working with this family. They always have such fun ideas!! We had a blast doing A's skater session, and she is so spunky! I really like how they turned out. Totally her. 

Doin' her thing...

I love this alley in Tracy, a little hidden gem 

So sweet!

Definitely one of my favorites. The dancing skater. 

I love using props that show their personality. 

Thank you, A!! I hope you had as much fun as I did!!!

~P~ Marshall Class of 2016 Senior {Southern Minnesota Senior Photographer}

I had an interesting request from P, he wanted bowling alley photos. I have never done anything like this before and I was totally geeked to give it a try!! Thankfully Tracy Lanes was willing to let us come and hang out at their facility for an hour or so and was so accommodating! I love how these turned out! 

I love the colors in this one!

Seriously, who gets to sit by the pins...ever?? 

So photogenic this one!

Mom wanted some trumpet photos I really like how these turned out. This little alley is a little hidden gem in our little town. 

Then we headed to the park on another evening. 

Let me tell you about the water shots. P was wearing sandals as I told him the rocks are brutal on your feet. For a few shots on the rock, I had him take them off. He went to throw them to his mom on the bank and missed. The sandal went down stream and I ran after it! Camera and all! I got the sandal safely (without getting wet) and P laughed the whole time. Glad I can amuse you ;-) 

We had rescheduled the park photos for a better light evening and I am so glad we did!! It was AWESOME! 

It doesn't get much better than this. 

Class of 2016~ It isn't too late to book your senior sessions! I still have October openings!!

At the 'Old Place' with the Z family {Southern Minnesota Family Photographer}

So, I love this family. Their oldest is good friends with my boy and they are just too much fun. We got to hang out at the family farmstead and the boys were in their tractor glory! We missed the big storms that day and beautiful overcast night, just like C wanted :-) 

When's my turn??

So cute! 

Such a handsome little boy!

These kids love their tractors!

It's serious business. 

Such a great looking family!

All smiles! 

The first time all three of them were on the tractor, they boys were in heaven! 

Thank you Z family! I can't wait to work with you again!
