Modern Children's Photographer Minneapolis| Joy Orcutt Photography

I've always got creativity flowing through my brain and so I'm always thinking of fresh, fun elements to add to children's photography. This idea of ties on baby onesies have been floating around the blog world for awhile so I had to try it out. Sure, it took me an hour or so to actually set up my sewing machine and figure out how it works again!! But I think they turned out fun and cute. I sure hope someone wants to try this out, perhaps for their baby's first birthday photos... or six month baby photos. More fresh, fun elements to come...

Minneapolis Lifestyle Photography/ Carnations

I don't know why carnations get a bad rap. I've heard a lot of people say they are not their favorite or they just can't stand them. I love carnations. I love that they are so fluffy, voluminous, they remind me of tissue paper pom poms. I also love them because they are so fragrant. Another reason to love carnations... they last for a long time. Anyway, instead of taking a picture of my whole vase of carnations I thought I would showcase just one stem.

I don't know... maybe I'm just easy to please but in the flower department a pink carnation... it just doesn't get any better for me! www.joyorcuttphotography.com

Minneapolis Family Photography | Minneapolis Lifestyle Photographer

I have photographed these treasured clients of mine several times now. Mom came shining through again with a beautiful scheme of outfit colors. They always look like models from the Childrens Place. This is what family photography is all about.
I love this photo, I hope you love it too- you are always so beautifully accessorized (is that how you spell it Mrs. M??)

... and doing whatever I gotta do to get the kids to smile genuine smiles!! not sure what maneuver I was doing but it got little miss "K" to throw her hands up!!

Thank you dear "M" family, you again, with your genuineness, manners and great character, have charmed me! http://www.joyorcuttphotography.com/

sweet sisters | Minneapolis Children's Photography

I'm the lucky one here, to photograph these beautiful girls. This is always such a fun age. I love the looks, the grins and the coo's. Pictures like this are the reason I love being a minneapolis childrens photographer. Who can resist this face?

Thank you "D" family, I hope you enjoy your photos so far... more to come! This photo has to be one of my favorites. This looks like an ad out of Hanna Andersson.

Minneapolis Senior Photography | Modern Senior Portraits Minneapolis

Yes, I'm lining up my senior rep.'s for the class of 2011. I love this time of year. It is so enjoyable to hear my clients future plans, college plans and love of life. This reminds me of my senior photos. This is the only time that the focus is just on the senior. A new year, a new group of reps and a time to look back and remember that time in our lives.

Gorgeous Gorgeous Miss "N." Thank you for representing Joy Orcutt Photography, its going to be a great year for you!
