When this mom-to-be contacted me for a photoshoot for her hubby as a surprise for his birthday- I thought it was one of the sweetest ideas!:)He’s sure to love them. Isn’t she just a beautiful expectant mom?

One Year Old Divine Miss *M*

One year olds are notoriously discerning in just who they will play with- so I felt honored to be let into her circle:)After being a little cautious of me and my big ole camera- she warmed up pretty quickly. I knew I was golden when she sat in my lap.:)

This one just makes me laugh:)

Isn’t she a cutie?

Her fluffy little duck hair is soooo precious!

She really loves this book!

Future architect?:)

Love these! Great blue eyes, but I think I like the B&W even better! Great work!

[…] haven’t seen this smiling face since her 1yr old session, and she has changed so much! Definitely two years old- a favorite age of […]

Sweet Baby *T* in St. Paul

Sweet Baby *T* is 6wks old and was so perky, alert and content! She like most 6wk olds loved to stretch out and kick her strong little legs:)Doesn’t she have beautiful eyes?! And those cheeks…..too cute!!

So cute and SO alert!! Beautiful images. :)

Och man, what a little nunu!! Love the cheeks!

Those eyes are incredible. She already is a deep thinker.

I can’t wait to have one.

My Happy Trooper Family of the Year!

This was our 3rd attempt at a session, and they were determined to have it work- despite the freezing temps and sleet:)What SUPER troopers they were- I mean seriously- I’ve never met parents and an older sister so able to put on super happy and encouraging faces and it was believable!!! Cold weather be darned! Talk about super attitudes! We met at the Wayzata Depot, which I’ve never been to before but it’s pretty cool! I’ll definitely have to take my kids there sometime…when the weather is warmer:)

Thanks *G* family for being SO awesome despite the temps- you get a big gold star for positive attitudes!:)I still can’t believe you went out for ice cream after….I went home and had a nice big cup of hot tea!:)

Gorgeous Fall Day with the *H* Family

In MN Fall weather is so short, but when it’s here it’s just soooo lovely! We were lucky to have a gorgeous day for their session! One of the last lovely days of the season- considering it’s currently snowing just to the west of us:)

Big brother *C*- isn’t he handsome?

Sweet Miss *L* who LOVED being photographed!:)

Baby *K* who was not so interested in being photographed:)

The entire lovely family!

you are photographing the most gorgeous families lately!

The 2nd *P* on the Block…

Meet sweet Mr. P- who is the 2nd P on their street I’ve had the pleasure of photographing! His cute neighbor Miss P, has been seen here.  I love shooting in Minneapolis, especially in South Minneapolis…the light there is just so yummy! As my blog regulars know- I have a special affection for toddlers…it probably stems from my years in college I worked as a toddler teacher (in south mpls no less!) but I just LOVE this age. I could have spent all day with Mr. P just listening to him and playing:)

Isn’t he just so adorable!!

The upside down turtle makes me giggle….
