I traveled to Florida with my beautiful friend, Ali, to photograph a wedding with her (I love traveling with her)! Ali’s husband and two sweet girls came along, too, so it was only natural to capture them on one of our free days in their “vacation element”… documentary-style¬†:). The little girls make white, greasy sunscreen look good and Ali makes pregnancy look so glamorous – she just glows!

LOVE this family! And I’m so happy that after years of waiting, Addison finally gets to be a big sister to a gorgeous little brother (who’s hair I was obviously obsessed with) and that my friends get to say that they are now “a family of four” :). The simple things in life are the most beautiful. Enjoy this little glimpse into their beautiful lives!

    wow, these are cute, want to see more!!!!

This is my beautiful friend, Pam and her gorgeous daughter, Julia. Pam photographed a day in our little family’s life back in January and then I got to return the favor when she planned the sweetest day with her oldest daughter. They spent the day at Blast Blow Dry Bar in the Mall of America where they got their hair washed, dried and styled and then sat down in the make-up chair… All “just because” Pam wanted to give her daughter a fun day out. How great is she?!! Maybe she’ll adopt me for a day or two and we can have a spa day :). I met Pam the day she arrived at my home and we hopped in the car to drive 8 hours down to Kansas City for one of the best workshops either one of us had ever been to (Thank you Tyler and Kirsten)! We chatted non-stop for the entire drive down, for our three days together in Kansas City and the entire drive back… I knew we were friends for life!

Enjoy these two beauties and take note that portrait sessions don’t always have to be about the whole family in their Sunday best… it can (& in my opinion, should be) about these small moments in life with the ones you love most!

    These are fantastic!!!

She’s my beautiful little niece and I’m crazy about her! I got a text from Joe (my brother-in-law) at 7am in the morning saying they were heading to the hospital. Tony and I got up, got Briggs ready (yes, we were all going to be there to meet the newest member of the family AND to finally find out will Briggs have a little boy or girl cousin) and just as I was packing up my camera bag, I got another text, “They just checked Kels, she’s at a 7, come soon!” I left Tony and Briggs behind to finish up breakfast and told them to meet me there. I love the photo of Kelsey saying hi to Briggs when he first gets there – it melts my heart to know how much he is loved by his aunties and uncles :). Kelsey and Joe didn’t have to wait too much longer for the greatest gift of their lives… Kynlie was born just before 1pm and she was (& still is) one of the the most beautiful babies I know! This little one is loved so much!

My favorite parts of the day? Glad you asked!
– How incredibly loving and supportive Joe is
– How beautifully emotional Kelsey’s mom, Geralyn, was over meeting her first grandchild
– The moment that Joe walked out to tell everyone waiting that they just had a baby GIRL!
– I remember becoming an auntie for the first time… watching Kelsey’s two sisters experience this was so surreal and special
– The text that Kelsey sends to her dad just before she begins pushing
– And mostly… to see Kelsey become a mommy right before my eyes! We spent many hours talking about this very moment <3 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_01 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_02 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_03 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_04 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_05 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_06 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_07 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_08 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_09 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_10 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_11 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_12 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_13 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_14 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_15 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_16 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_17 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_18 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_19 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_21 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_20 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_22 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_23 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_24 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_25 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_26 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_27 waconia_hospital_birth_photography_28
