Holiday 2008 Deadlines

With the holiday season already upon us, I wanted to post deadlines for ordering to ensure you all receive your portraits and cards in time for holidays!

All photo sessions from which you’d like to order holiday cards must take place before November 16th.

All orders for holiday cards must be placed by Dec. 1st to ensure delivery in time for the holidays. All photo orders intended for holiday gifts should also be placed by Dec. 1st. Any orders placed after Dec 1st are not guaranteed for holiday delivery.

All albums and canvas products you’d like for the holidays must be ordered by Nov. 16th to ensure timely delivery.

If you still need to book a session for the holidays please contact me ASAP as I have only a few days available before the holiday-cut offs! If you are expecting a newborn please contact me with your estimated due date as I always have a little wiggle room in my schedule to ensure space for new arrivals.


** If you are a previous client who would like to order holiday cards from a session already completed- send me an email to see this years offerings for beautiful custom holiday cards! If you’ve had a session this year and would like a quick mini-session solely for updated holiday card photos, email me as I am offering mini’s for returning clients. **


Thank you!


Sunshiny Day in Minneapolis

Okay seriously- how ADORABLE are these two?? They started off a little apprehensive about the whole photoshoot idea, but warmed up pretty quickly and really had fun with it!


Showing some team spirit! T’s crooked glasses just CRACK ME UP!

Miss W and her brilliant smile

I. Want. To. Squeeze. Him.

What makes a 2 and 3 yr old smile like this? A jellyfish on my head of course.

And N- these are for you:)

4yr old Fall Fun

I met *N* and her parents at their neighborhood park. I love shooting at locations that have personal meaning for clients- it makes the session that much more fun! Miss *N* had all sorts of stories to tell me about things she loves to do.

Is there anything more fun in the fall?

The family having a tickle-fest:)

Anna-Karin - Saturday, October 18, 2008 - 11:16 pm

These are so much fun with the playing in the leafs. What a great way to document their family playfulness.
Pretty little girl!

My Favorite Delano Family

They have been seen many times on my blog- baby *A* most famously as I photographed his birth into this world back in March- seen HERE. He’s now 6months old!! The big brothers boys C+C are two my kids favorite people- and always have a blast when they get together.
And that baby boy- isn’t he just delicious!?

diana simpson - Monday, October 13, 2008 - 8:30 am

so great

gwendolyn waite - Monday, October 13, 2008 - 12:48 pm

Beautiful photos! Love the black and white baby photo – what a cutie! Those eyes… and that smile… Beautiful capture.

Olga - Tuesday, October 14, 2008 - 7:57 pm

WOW, you got some amazing smiles there! What a great session! I’d be thrilled with images like these of my kids!

[...] Okay, okay, on to the photographs…’s been while since I’ve had them in for a session- I had to look back to see. [...]

Gorgeous Miss *I* in Minnetonka

I met Miss *I* and her mom on Monday which was a lovely fall day. What a hoot this little toddler is! Soooo sweet and adorable! I’m a little late on my sneak peek-  but hopefully you’ll find it worth the wait!:)


Julie - Friday, October 10, 2008 - 9:59 pm

Oh what a personality she has, adorable!

Nicole Z - Saturday, October 11, 2008 - 8:30 pm

Oh, what a little cutie pie!! She looks like a ball of energy!! You did a beautiful job!!!

Rebecca - Wednesday, October 15, 2008 - 7:55 pm

So sweet, look at that smile! I love that gymbo line too. :)

Jen Lane - Wednesday, October 15, 2008 - 11:49 pm

Aww! She is SO so cute! Love those eyes and that hair. #2 cracks me up-you can just feel all her energy. These are lovely and so sweet.

Donita - Thursday, October 16, 2008 - 1:25 pm

That last one is awesome!

Sneak Peek for the *S* Family

The *S* family recently relocated to MN from AZ….and the day of their session was one of those perfect MN fall days that makes you so happy to reside in Minnesota. Truly just PERFECTION. It’s one of the little things about living here…we have an appreciation for Fall and Spring that people in other states do not. Come here for the winter and you’ll understand why:)

Anyhoo- on to the sneak peek…. is this family just not GORGEOUS!! Talk about photogenic and so easy-peasy to be around. They made my job a piece of cake!

Beautiful Miss *J* who’s only 7 but seems so much more mature and wise for her young years.

Spunky Mr. *A* who I greatly appreciated laughing at my silly puppet shows- this was I believe about a stinky skunk. Why is the word “stinky” so amusing to 2yr olds? I don’t know- but I embrace it!

This to me is the epitome of their ages….7 and so calm and posed…2 and ready to spring into action!

This just plain cracks me UP!


There’s just nothing like a walk through the woods in the Fall…

This one just makes me smile:)

TaraMc - Thursday, October 9, 2008 - 12:01 am

These are adorable Amy! Love all the natural expressions you captured. Fun, fun moments. That first family image is picture perfect!

Jeanette - Thursday, October 9, 2008 - 5:59 am

What stunning photos!

Jan Scott - Thursday, October 9, 2008 - 6:47 am

That first one is such an ideal family shot! Great work!

diana simpson - Thursday, October 9, 2008 - 10:02 am

what a beautiful family

Betty Gray - Wednesday, October 15, 2008 - 11:42 am

Love the one with them walking through the woods. Great job. Glad to see you’re keeping busy. :-)

Jen Lane - Wednesday, October 15, 2008 - 11:48 pm

What an adorable family. Looks like you were really able to help everyone feel comfortable and relaxed! These are so nice!

Chatty, Chattier and Chattiest :)

Anyone who’s ever met my kids- knows they can talk. I mean…TALK. They are insane chatterboxes. It’s rare that I run into a family with kids as chatty as mine. Up till now the only kids I’ve met that could outchat mine- are my friend Sara’s (kids seen here) These 3 sisters were such a hoot! Endless chitchat and verbal energy that had me laughing, just because I felt so at home. Besides being able to tell me lots and lots of stories- they were also just completely sweet and fun to be around.:)

Jessica - Tuesday, October 7, 2008 - 10:06 pm

Oh my goodness what cutie pies! I love their outfits!

Jan Scott - Tuesday, October 7, 2008 - 10:08 pm

Oh my, they are CUTE! LOVE your variety of shots here!

DSR - Tuesday, October 7, 2008 - 10:37 pm

These are so fun! Love the polka dots!

sara porush - Wednesday, October 8, 2008 - 2:24 pm

smooch smooch amykins…
great pics!
btw I’m sitting here typing as Shana is just talking continuously to me…I’m going um-huh at regular intervals :)

Anna-Karin - Wednesday, October 8, 2008 - 8:40 pm

These are some sweet sister pictures you captured!
Adorable little ladies.

Jen Lane - Wednesday, October 8, 2008 - 9:21 pm

These are AWESOME. What HAPPY portraits. Totally love that second one! Your work is so lively and fun.

Betty Gray - Wednesday, October 15, 2008 - 11:43 am

Oh your title is too funny. They are such cute girls.

lisa - Monday, October 20, 2008 - 9:10 pm
