A Girl and Her Tractor | Northeast Minneapolis Studio Photographer

I got to see another one of the NICU babies I’ve photographed.  I just love when I get the opportunity to see these little ones again.  This little country girl is turning one on the best day ever to have a birthday!  (hint hint we share the same day!)  We held the session at my new studio location and my kids had to be there because they didn’t want to stay home alone (long story short dad had to go out of town).  Well for those who have had sessions with me you will know that my kids are NEVER with me BUT this might be changing for future sessions because let me tell you we went from this face:

to this face:

with just my rugrats playing peek-a-boo behind me.  She just ate them up.  So if they are going to be my little snake charmers I might have to make them work more often.  They work for chocolate so it’s a pretty good deal on my end.

This little one is just too precious for words so without further adieu here are a few more sneak peeks:

I’m not sure why I didn’t include more smiley ones because we certainly got them.  I guess I just love all her little curious looks too plus I can only pick so many for a sneak peek!  Stay turned to Facebook to see my favorites once I finish all the images.

Want to see how far she’s come?  Here are a few of the NICU images I took:

Lil’ Slugger Studio Session | Minnesota Child & Family Photographer

From NICU to the ballpark, this lil’ slugger turned one!  I had such a fun studio session with this cutie.  We took some portraits, had some fun and smashed a cake, just what turning one is all about.  I can’t wait to go through all the images but I wanted to post a few sneak peeks.  Enjoy!  To view my favorites from the session follow me on Facebook where they will be posted in a couple of weeks.

The mQn Photography Studio Space | North East Minneapolis Studio Photographer

I am so excited to announce my leap into renting a shared studio space in Northeast Minneapolis.  It’s such a beautiful space.

This month I’m participating in a blog circle with a few photographer friends from all over the globe!  At the end of this post, be sure to click my friend Hali’s link to follow the circle around.  Hali is from Rochester, NY.   You’ll get a glimpse of her getting in the frame on her blog.  It’s so important for us photographers to get in the frame too!  Which is way you’ll see me below too in my new studio space . . .

If you are on Instagram then you may have already heard but I wanted to officially put it on the blog.   It’s the perfect space for families, newborns, babies or older children.  It’s just the perfect amount of vintage/rustic I love and also a great space for cake smashes and all kinds of other ideas I have brewing in my mind.

And if the actual studio space wasn’t enough there are lots of common areas to access too which is great for older kids and seniors!

I’m really hoping to be able to utilize the space most of winter when it’s just too cold to go outside and all other times in the year when a client’s home just isn’t what they want.  I will still be offering my services for outdoor/indoor on location sessions as well as in-home lifestyle and fresh 48 and NICU sessions at the hospitals. But for all the other times you can come see me here.

In the Garden with the Extended Ferzoco Family | Como Park Conservatory Photo Session With North Oaks Photographer

With the winter chill in the air it’s hard to do a family session outside especially when you have two year old twins!  What’s a good solution when family is in town but the weather is less than ideal?  Inside the Como Park Conservatory, of course.  This location is such a beautiful place which changes every season.  Schedule the session before hours and the place is yours for a half hour.  It was a great option for this extended family session.  Enjoy!

Last Minute Snow Session Sneak Peek | North Oaks, Minnesota Child Photographer

We had such a blast with this very last minute snow session.  We weren’t even expecting snow and we woke up to a couple of inches and it was relatively “warm” out.  You know it wasn’t below freezing (well maybe by a degree or two)  It was the perfect morning to have it.  That’s the thing with snow sessions, they sort of have to be scheduled very last minute but if it works for you it usually works for me in the winter too.  I always have so much fun I don’t want it to end!  But the cold does get to us eventually.  In any event, can’t wait to share my favorites of these but until then, here is a sneak peek!
