Gruber Family portraits

It’s no secret that I love capturing weddings, but, oh boy getting to see families (that I love) year after year and being a small part of their story is really high up there too. This family…I could talk to them for hours. They know me and I know them. We don’t hang out, but we definitely could. I love being around them that much!

It started with family portraits. They let me into their home and their hearts years ago when their sweet twins come home from the hospital. And from there I have watched them grow as a family. It’s weird, but I feel proud of them. We all know that life isn’t always easy, but I’m thankful they kept fighting for each other and their family. Family Portraits capture this season and this moment. That’s what makes them beautiful.

Thank you Gruber Family for letting me be a part of your story 🙂

Johnson Family Portraits – 3 Generations together

Normally at this time of year I’m busy shooting wedding photography, but I had the incredible privilege of capturing this amazing family (3 generations together) and it made me smile. No one really “likes” to have their picture taken. It’s uncomfortable and awkward, but my goal is always to lessen the chore of it and make it fun because everyone loves having the images when it done! So, I lead this sweet family through the Guthrie, Mill City and over to Izzy’s for ice cream…the photoshoot became an enjoyable night spent with family 🙂 (and me.)

Thank you for choosing me to be your family photography. I can’t wait for the next time we get together for family portraits! ICE CREAM AGAIN??????

Phoenix, Arizona. (Papago Park)

I love to travel. Sometimes I have the privilege of traveling for photography…that brings my two loves together and I’m one happy girl. A couple of weeks ago a photographer friend (ErinJohnsonPhotography) and I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona for an action packed weekend. We scheduled 3 photo sessions and many other epic adventures. Having the opportunity to capture a new landscape and feel the sun on my face at the same time, was pretty awesome. On my birthday weekend no less.

One of my favorite locations was Papago Park. (seen below) I’m already planning my next trip back to Arizona. 🙂

Here’s some of my favorites from the trip:

Senior Portraits, Minneapolis, MN

It’s cold in Minnesota this time of year. But, we’re Minnesotan and that doesn’t scare us. An hour and a half in the cold…done! We had a blast shooting these Senior Portraits at the Mill City Museum and gutherie The trick is to plan plenty of time to warm up in between outdoor portraits!
ENJOY!
