Precious memories – a family session

This sweet family got together to celebrate Barb’s birthday, and we got a great pic with all their grandkids.  Well, all but the three to be born later this year, anyway.  They are such fun kids, and one of my favorite families other than my own for so many reasons. You all are very special to me, and I am blessed to have been able to do this for you.  I hope you enjoy these photos for many years to come.


Sweet little newborn

I love new babies.  They are so sweet, tiny, delicate (or seem so), and sleepy.  This little guy was no exception.  He was a perfect angel, and my very first newborn to photograph.  Welcome to the world Briggs, I am excited to see you for your next pics soon!  Here are a few of my favorites from the session.

This was a beautiful day, where we woke up to thick frost on all the trees.  It was quite a sight.  We had fun capturing some great moments with Dave, Becky, and the kids. Here are a few to share:


This one was a surprise once I uploaded the pics, it was my “test shot”:

Sweet family and fall colors – White Bear Lake Family Photography

We had a wonderful time with this family!  They were all photogenic and had so much fun.  The colors at Tamarack Nature Center in White Bear Lake were just spectacular.  Minnesota has a way with fall, and we took full advantage on this Sunday afternoon.  Here are a few of the family:

Dad and son, Mom and daughter – such sweet pics.

Family fun.

Sweet. And a brother and sister who like each other.  Always a plus!

Thank so much for a beautiful day and photo shoot.  You all were a joy to spend the afternoon and evening with.

Jackie’s family lives in South Dakota, near the Minnesota border, so we get to visit quite often as it’s about a four hour drive.  It has been wonderful for our little girl to get to see her grandparents, great grandparents, and Uncle Jake, Aunt Steph, and cousins Logan and Carter on a regular basis.

We were out to the farm visiting last weekend and decided to take some family pics for them.  These are in their backyard, the farm that Jake and Jackie grew up on.  It was a perfectly beautiful, sunny fall day, and even their sweet dog Jag jumped in for most of the pics.  These were our first official portraits, and we are excited to share them!
