A fabulous afternoon session/Minneapolis Lifestyle Photography

I had the opportunity to photograph this charming and fun couple over the weekend.
They made it so easy to just snap away...

It was a really nice afternoon for a session, I'm glad the weather was so pleasant, it worked out great! It was nice meeting the two of you, your gallery is coming soon!

Adventures with an 18-month-old

This bridge and a nice big pile of leaves usually does the trick to get the busiest of the 18-month-olds to slow down just a bit.

and sometimes we even get to roll around in the leaves! Look at the happy toddler!!

Thank you miss "A," you are simply a delight and thank your mom and dad too! More pictures are on their way!

Nice to see you again Z

Z thats Me! this time I brought mom AND dad with me, see:

soon we will no longer be just a family of three...

tune in next time after mommy has the baby and see whom it will be!
Congratulations and best wishes for your very busy future!

These friends of mine/ Minneapolis Lifestyle Photographer

These cuties are good friends of mine... I'm not going to write anymore here because I know this girl (that I met in kindergarten) is not even reading this right now... she's skipping ahead to see the pictures!
Dude, that leaf is bigger than your head!
such a little man

awww... you guys look just as gorgeous as you did on your wedding day (which I was in, hee hee)
There's more where this came from... I'll let you know when your gallery is ready.

Huddle up/ Twin Cities Lifestyle Photography

It was coooooold on this day.
I think it worked in our favor though... everyone had to huddle up close to stay warm
awwwww... as I'm going through photos I feel I'm always saying, "AWWWWW, such a cute family!"

It was so nice meeting you "G" family. I love your photos so far and I love the clothing/color scheme you have going on, it worked so well here.

A Woman To Watch.../ Modern Senior Photography

I say a woman to watch because this young woman (a 2010 Totino Grace grad) will definitely do some big things.

Whether it be in the fashion industry, or which college she plays basketball for...
this girl has some incredible talents.

Ummm... yeah, you're seeing this right... She can also spin a basketball like a Globetrotter!

"Wow!" Is all I can say "Key," thanks for the incredible experience photographing you... it was totally sick! (translation: great, fabulous, GOOD!)

A great fall weekend

It was a great, busy fall weekend. Thank you to all the families I photographed this weekend, so many smiles and memories. Sneak peeks coming soon...
