Self Isolating, and Home Schooling

These days, you guys. These days. ((sigh)) As a family of five, we have chosen to self-isolate. My children’s father is asthmatic, so a higher risk, and we are taking this seriously. (The way we see it…there is no harm spending a few weeks of our lives living on the safe side. There IS harm…

Bunker Hills Family Photos

Hello! I’m just dropping by to share a few of my favorite pics from last weekends family session. I, believe, this is the eleventh year we’ve worked together!? (That seems like a long time, for sure–but, even longer when you think two of the kiddos hadn’t even been born at that point!) This year, we…

Oh, Sweet Baby

Babies. ❤ Oh. This little guy had me melting. He is so sweet, and so calm, and was so easy to work with. (Not to mention, his perfect little head of hair is just the best.) He was so awake, and alert, while I was there shooting. (He’s only four weeks old, and I was…

Anoka Family Photography

Hey! I’m back with some photography today! All those dandelion recipes were fun–but, I figured I should pop in with some work stuff, too. 🙂 A beautiful backyard, full of blooming lilacs, was the catalyst for the the timing of this family photo session. It was really fun for me to swing by their home…

Quick Update :: Minnesota Photographer

Hey! I’m just poppin’ in today to say hi. 🙂 I feel like it’s been a long time since I’ve been around the blog, and, honestly, it kinda has. As you probably know, I work for a florist as their blogger, social media manager, website updater, and photographer–also, Valentine’s Day happened. So, my attention was…

Forest Lake Family Photos

My sister and I have been saying ‘we’re gonna do it this year’, for a couple years now. And, just like a lot of things in life–we talk a big game, but, time gets away from us. (Well, it doesn’t get ‘away’. It just goes other places. It goes to the kids, to parents, to…

Lino Lakes Family Photography

All right! Here’s family two, of three, to close out my 2018. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Blaine, Lino Lakes, and Forest Lake area lately–and, these guys are no exception to that. I’ve been working with this, awesome, family since long before the third little one came into the picture. (Hah!…

Blaine Family Photo Shoot

Hello and happy 2019! I’m just over here reading a bunch of great blogs that nicely wrap up 2018–while, also realizing that I’m not fully done with my 2018 posts. Oops. Maybe by the end of this week I’ll get them finished up–I just have a couple of sessions left to get on the blog…

Blaine Family Photos

It sounds generic, and like something that every Photographer says–but, I really do love my photo families. I love that I get invited back into their home year, after year. I love that I get to grow with them, and watch them change every year. I love that I get to be a part of…

Anoka Fall Family Session

Hello again! It’s eleven p.m. and here I am–alone, on the couch, with a candle and Christmas tree lit on either side of me. I have Hulu, and a snoring dog, and I couldn’t be happier in this moment. Things are mellow, things are calm, and I can finally get this gorgeous family up on…
