Letters to Our Children; November ~ North Oaks, Minnesota Photographing Dreams Photographer

Dear Harry & Hermione (Tyler & Kendall),

How much fun did we have for Halloween?  We have been doing these shoots for quite a few years now and I just love them.  You know how I adore that I can get you guys to complement each other in your costumes every year and yes I know this may be the last year.  :-(  We’ve had a good run though.  I have to say it really made my day when you said, one of the good things about me being a photographer is that I can take pictures of you guys like this.  We take pretend play to a whole other level don’t we? Enjoy!

Just Us 12 Times (October) ~ Minnesota Apple Picking Photographer

Well the other week I took the kids apple picking.  It was just me and the kids since daddy had to travel to some exotic place (like probably Detroit).  It was a cloudy and cold and there were probably more apples on the ground than in the trees but we had fun!  And I managed to get into two images.  Happy Fall!

Letters to Our Children; October ~ North Oaks, Minnesota Birthday Party Photographer

Dear Tyler,

I can’t believe you turned 9!  This year you wanted a “homemade” party so you got one!  I am not the most creative when it comes to parties.  But it helped that you knew exactly what you wanted and basically we put this shin dig together ourselves.  It really made my day when you said “this is going to be the best birthday party EVER because it’s homemade”  :-) It would have been easier to just go to Zero Gravity but I’m glad we put something together that you loved.  It was a great day!  Happy Birthday big boy.
