I am such a huge sucker for simple black and white portraits. I couldn't resist posting this one from Maeva's session this weekend. :)
Sweet little Taylor. I've been taking her photos since she was 3 months old, so I was pretty excited when they asked me back to their home in Ham Lake to take her 2 year photos. I always love seeing how much kids change from one session to the next. Even since her last session at 18 months old, it was pretty evident how much more of a "kid" she's becoming, and less of a baby. I had fun hanging out at their home for a couple of hours, taking photos, playing and laughing. Always a good time. :)
Selene came in for her newborn photos back in August. I had a lot of baby boy sessions leading up to hers, so I was excited to have a girl in again. When she fell asleep, she slept like a champ, and I'm pretty sure she holds the record for most smiles. :)
I photographed Wyatt's newborn portraits earlier this summer. He was already 5 weeks old at the time, but he arrived earlier than expected and his session was still before his actual due date. Wyatt was awake for most of his session, but we still got some adorable shots. Some of my favorite newborn photos are ones where they have their eyes open. Always so cute. :)
I just realized that I have only blogged one of my senior sessions from this year. Yikes! Let's fix that right now.
Kylie was my second high school senior of the year. We shot her senior portraits at a place that her family visits frequently - Taylors Falls, MN. I hadn't been there before, so I took my kids out the week before to have a picnic, do a little running around, and scope the place out. Let me tell you, Taylors Falls is gorgeous!! I wish I lived closer, because I have a feeling I'd be spending a lot of time there. I can see why Kylie and her family have been going there for years. :)
I had such a great evening with Kylie and her mom, and I really love how these turned out. I can't say I was a huge fan of standing on the cliffs for photos (fear of heights, anyone?), but I got over it and we got some fantastic shots! Here are some of my favorites. :)
I took Adalyn's big brother's newborn photos a couple of years ago, so it was great to see these guys again and meet their newest addition. Adalyn was such a great, sleepy baby. Big bro didn't want much to do with photos, but we did manage to get a couple. :) Mom brought with some really cute accessories for Adalyn, but my absolute favorite was the "lil sister" bracelet. So tiny and sweet!
