Minneapolis Children's Photographer| Minneapolis Children's Photography

I've been hogging all the photo shoots lately (hee hee) and actually, my husband and business partner, Jason has been missing being a part of the action. So, he set out to capture some good times with the "H" family.

I think this may be some of our first outdoor shots of the season! Yay! woo hoo! Love outdoor photo sessions!

Thank you "H" family, your gallery will be up soon...

Minneapolis Children's Photographer| Minneapolis Lifestyle Photographer

Lately my Saturdays at the NE Minneapolis studio have been completely full and this past Saturday was no exception. Here are just a few images from the fun world of a Minneapolis Children's Photographer...

awww... these clients have returned to me several times to capture their milestones. They are growing like weeds! It seems like just yesterday I was photographing little miss "A" in her 1-year-old birthday hat.

We also had new clients to Joy Orcutt Photography... Mr. "H" and his mommy.

This lovely duo was referred by another client I photographed later in the afternoon...

Yay! there's a genuine boy smile! (well, anyone would laugh when they hear me try to make animal sounds!)

...AND... Hello again "W" family! The last time we got together for photos I captured this little man in a bucket carried by his mom and dad... still one of my favorites.
He was so cute carrying around his blankie, blankies are special.

Not sure who was having more fun running around the studio and playing peekaboo, child or dad??

Lookin' pretty spiffy dude!

Thank you for the fabulous Saturday...
More photos on the way for all of you!!

Its such a rarity... to see these two 2-year-old feet stopping to take a break.
I just love these shoes and I know it won't be long until they are dirty and muddy... spring is on the way! These were taken at the Minneapolis studio. A big part of children's photography is capturing their little details.

Minneapolis Children's Photographer| Minneapolis Baby Photographer

One busy day at the studio equals one happy photographer, well, and some happy kids and a lot of happy parents.

These playful images are why I absolutely adore children's photography.

Thanks to everyone who played with me on this day... more photos to come for you all...

Minneapolis Children's Photographer| Modern Children's Photography Minneapolis

Its been waaaaay long since I last photographed these little dudes. I don't know why they were so shy at first, I know their mom quite well.

But that's cool, custom photography allows for time to relax, get used to the surroundings. I took some time to just capture their little boy feet, and the lizard on J's shirt! Hey, I'm no dummy... I know kids really don't want to sit and be posed and say "cheese" a billion times, so I had mom make sure to bring about a billion and one Matchbox cars.

We spread them out and out came the big, wide, genuine kid smiles.

Those Matchbox cars did all the work for me! If you're looking for a Minneapolis Children's Photographer who knows kids don't want to sit still and be posed... contact Joy Orcutt Photography, we know how to just be real with the kids!!!

Minneapolis Children's Photographer| modern spring photos Minneapolis

This lovely family came to the Minneapolis studio for some spring photos. We needed to capture Little "B's" six month old baby pictures. We also needed to get 3 year old photos for miss "K" who is having a birthday real soon. Their mom brought the most adorable outfits, a dream for a children's photographer. In our session we also had plenty of time for a few shots of the whole family. Thank you for choosing me to photograph your family. There are many more to come in your gallery!
