Happy Birthday to my 3 Peas!

Hard to believe that they are SIX years old!!! WHERE has all the time gone?

We have a fun filled day- and I’ll be back later with pics- but had to share a pic of their “beginning”:)

Makes me weepy to remember them so little:



Lori L - Wednesday, August 6, 2008 - 2:30 pm

Oh how sweet! Happy Birthday!

diana simpson - Wednesday, August 6, 2008 - 4:04 pm

i understand my oldest is almost 7 and it just flies by too fast

Jo - Wednesday, August 6, 2008 - 7:33 pm

Happy Birthday kiddos!!!

Chelle G. - Thursday, August 7, 2008 - 6:30 pm

Oh gosh I have tears. Reminds me of mine! Same hats and everything.

Little Mr. P – Toddlericious!

To say this boy loves basketball…would be an understatement. If he’d had his way- he would have tossed it down the driveway and made me chase it for him 100000times:)Toddlers crack me up- because you truly can’t MAKE them do anything for a photo- they just do what they want. Which I have to admit- I love. They are true to themselves like no other age! Now it does make my job as a photographer that much more challenging- but the photographs that result are so pure it makes it worth it 1000time over.:)

The last one is so cute!

Lori Wood Habiger - Sunday, August 3, 2008 - 9:34 pm

Oh my goodness – I just want to hug him! What a cutie! Nice work capturing his many expressions.

What a cutie pie! Love your conversion!

Rach - Wednesday, August 6, 2008 - 8:57 am

Ohhh, such a doll-baby! You do so such a wonderful job capturing the best shots. . .if only you lived closer – you could do our little men! ;-) I would LOVE that!

Rebecca - Wednesday, August 6, 2008 - 10:54 am

Awww, great shots!!!

Big Day for The Girl!

Her bottom two teeth have been wiggly for like, um, 3 months now? I was starting to think they were never going to fall out! But today- her first tooth decided to make a break for it! She’s soooo excited “I have a window in my mouth!!”:)


Her new big toothless grin.:)



This one makes me laugh- cause she looks like an annoyed teenager….



With her tooth fairy pillow that she’s just been ITCHING to use:D


Carrie Steffe - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 9:00 pm

awww..congrats on her big milestone!!

Cheryl Weaver - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 9:19 pm

I am such a sucker for toothless grins! :)

These are so much fun and what a little cutie she is! :)

Dawn - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 9:35 pm

Yay! She looks so excited :-)

Chelle - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 10:10 pm

Adorable new grin!

Jeni - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 10:25 pm

awww that first one is awesome!! What a proud face she has!

Chelle G. - Friday, August 1, 2008 - 12:34 am

How very strang to see my name in the comments. I didn’t think I had commented on this yet. LOL

Anyway- Did you make the tooth fairy pillow? It is SO cute. And I just LOVE that first picture of your DD! I can tell by the picture the other one is loose too.

My dd says she thinks she will NEVER lose a tooth.

Gretchen - Friday, August 1, 2008 - 8:00 am

Yay L!!! :)

Heather Gibb - Friday, August 1, 2008 - 10:50 am

What fun shots!! She is a doll and looks so happy!

Jenty - Friday, August 1, 2008 - 1:39 pm

LOL, how cute, and I love that pillow!

Melanie - Friday, August 1, 2008 - 2:31 pm

How cute is she? She looks so excited!

stacey - Saturday, August 2, 2008 - 12:34 am

Oh my!! I love these~she is an absolute doll!

Holli - Saturday, August 2, 2008 - 3:23 am

Your dd is so cute!!! Congratulations!

teri mason - Saturday, August 2, 2008 - 11:23 am

Adorable! What a big step toward big-kid-dom! She is just precious. You’ll have to update the blog header with her new “windowed” teeth!!

diana simpson - Sunday, August 3, 2008 - 2:59 pm

awwwe i love that!

Desiree Hayes - Sunday, August 3, 2008 - 10:16 pm

Sooo exciting!! What a cutie!

Martha - Monday, August 4, 2008 - 12:38 pm

I LOVE toothless grins; so very very sweet :)

Rach - Wednesday, August 6, 2008 - 8:53 am

Awww, so sweet – love it! :-) Woohoo – just incredibly exciting when they lose the “first”. . . another BIG milestone Mama!

Newborn Baby *D*

I don’t what’s cuter….him or his fluffy hair!! Most newborns I’ve photographed are bald as can be- but not sweet Baby *D*- he has the CUTEST fluffy little hair on his new little head:)I also just LOVE his beautiful pouty lips! He was SUCH a good little trooper- when I arrived he was out like a sack-o-potatoes and let me do whatever I needed to! We barely heard a peep out of him the first hour! Baby *D* also holds the honor of being the first baby to releave himself on me- which by the way my kids found extremely humorous. One of their favorite questions to ask when I get home from a newborn session is to ask what blankets/etc the baby peed on – when they heard it was ME- they laughed and laughed. I’ve had many a parent get the treatment, so I suppose it’s only fair it happen to me as well:) 

Jenty - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 2:18 pm

What a beautiful set!! I love the second one

diana simpson - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 2:19 pm

what a beautiful family

Carrie Steffe - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 3:15 pm

Oh these are adorable..LOVE that eye contact shot!

Chelle - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 4:12 pm

What a cutie! So sweet.

DeMar Family - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 4:18 pm

The most beautiful baby boy I have ever seen! (and his parents aren’t bad either!)

Melanie - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 5:49 pm

Gorgeous baby and family! He has those perfect pouty baby lips! Great family shot!

Olga - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 6:12 pm

These are wonderful newborn shots! Nice work!

Joni Streit - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 6:41 pm

I love that family shot! So crisp and clean. Beautiful work. :)

Jen - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 7:42 pm

These are all great. My favorite is the 3rd one!

Brandy - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 9:19 pm

Wow…beautiful baby and great captures!

Kami Voiles - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 2:42 am

I love photographing newborns!!! He is so sweet! I lol at the peeing story. As photographers, we know that there is no way we can get through a newborn session without having to do some laundry right afterwards! I have had a few pee on me directly as well. It’s worth it for the beautiful photos though, isn’t it? :)

Merav - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 10:58 am

Oh – he is adorable and these portraits are wonderful!

Holli - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 12:51 pm

Love the family picture – sweet family!

lindseydy - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 6:46 pm

Love the family picture!! Very cute!

Auntie Ades - Monday, August 4, 2008 - 11:00 am

I fell in love again.
He is exquisite…

Why I love Minneapolis- Meet Princess *P*

Having previously spent many years working in South Minneapolis, it has a particular fondness for me….and in my current vocation, I love it for another reason- GORGEOUS lighting and scenery! Of course- today, that is in part to the lovely home and awesome landscaping of the N family. Not to mention their beautiful little girl. Meet their precocious 2yr old- who I had SO much fun with!! When during a photo session you can go from poking at spiderwebs outside, to a tea party inside- it’s a great day:)


Cindy - Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 4:08 pm

Oooh that first one is stunning!

Janine - Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 5:26 pm

Love that first one — her eyes are so soulful!

Holli - Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 6:38 pm

Amy, love your fresh, bright color in these! What a doll too!

Olga - Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 7:48 pm

You did an amazing job capturing the essence of being 2! These images just make me smile!

jen wilson - Sunday, July 27, 2008 - 8:41 pm

Amy you did such an amazing job of not only capturing wonderful portraits but you captured a bit of soul with them. These are fantastic!

Melanie - Monday, July 28, 2008 - 6:58 am

What a little cutie! I really love the 1st and last ones!

Jeni - Monday, July 28, 2008 - 9:36 am

ooooh great job on these! I love the one of the pathway leading up to her, fabulous!!

diana simpson - Monday, July 28, 2008 - 1:45 pm

that path photograph looks just like my parents back yard! love it

Jenty - Monday, July 28, 2008 - 1:53 pm

Oh wow, she’s just gorgeous! I love the last one, it’s so girly

Jennifer Nahm - Monday, July 28, 2008 - 9:03 pm

Beautiful work! The first one is especially stunning and I love the composition of the 5th one- the path drows your eye right to her.

Chelle - Monday, July 28, 2008 - 10:51 pm

Oh my! How GORGEOUS!!!! I think my favorite is the one where she is looking back and the stepping stones lead to a gate. Stunning!

Steph - Tuesday, July 29, 2008 - 7:32 am

Not sure how her parents are going to pick from these!

Brandy - Tuesday, July 29, 2008 - 11:33 pm

These are such beautiful portraits – what a gorgeous little girl!

Jessica - Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 1:09 pm

great job! All of them are beautiful

Bob - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 12:54 am

Amy: Wonderful job! But you were working with an unbelivably cute subject…I might be a little partial since she is my beautiful grand daugher!

Proud Grandpa

Kami Voiles - Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 2:44 am

Oh my goodness…I think this is my favorite session of yours!!! All of these photos are just beautiful! I love the one where she is at the end of the walkway by the fence!!! She is adorable and you did such an AWESOME job capturing her beauty!!!

Little Man Blue Eyes

Little Man *F* has the MOST amazing blue eyes!! 6months old and just as cute as a button:)We were suppose to have the session the evening before, but were rained out…well it ended up being a blessing as the weather the next morning was BEAUTIFUL and this little guy was easy-peasy to photograph as he was happy as a little clam:)

Ganell Kopp - Wednesday, July 23, 2008 - 3:24 pm

what a little cutie.

Brandy Cunningham - Wednesday, July 23, 2008 - 9:10 pm

Wow..these are stunning…such great clarity! You must shoot with the 5d? ++

wendy b. - Friday, July 25, 2008 - 6:55 am

Oh, you’re right. Those blue eyes are BEAUTIFUL! And, of course, your photos captured them wonderfully.

Cheri - Friday, July 25, 2008 - 12:04 pm

That is the most amazing baby. He makes me think of the Carpenters song – “on the day you were born… the angels must have… sprinkled stardust in your eyes.” What a lucky family!

Jennifer S - Friday, July 25, 2008 - 1:21 pm


Alana - Friday, July 25, 2008 - 4:00 pm

Sweet Baby Boy

I love photographing newborns….there’s just something about that pure, sweet, “newness”- there’s nothing else like it! This little guy was a trooper!! Sweet baby *A* did SO well- he was awake for a long time, and finally dozed of for just a few minutes- long enough for me to get some sweet sleeping shots:)





His VERY attentive big brother- he did a GREAT job !

Big brother *J*- was a HOOT! SOooo much fun to photograph- he’s 3 and really loved having his picture taken- he was a blast!

Jenty - Wednesday, July 23, 2008 - 3:28 pm

Simply gorgeous, the one of the brothers is just SO special!!

Christen Rush - Wednesday, July 23, 2008 - 8:48 pm
