Sweetness in the NICU | Children’s Hospital Minnesota NICU & Newborn Photographer

I’m so happy when families that I photograph in the NICU let us share their images and their stories.  It really helps to bring awareness to the wonderful opportunity that The Tiny Footprint Project offers to families living in the NICU.  I enjoy being a participating photographer with this organization I get to meet so many beautiful babies and loving families.  So let’s get to my newest NICU baby.

This blessing was born at 27 weeks and 6 days and she is doing amazing!  She greeted the world at 2lbs 8oz and 14in long!  With two big sisters they are all anxious to get home.

At Hill Farm with the Kavan Family Sneak Peeks | North Oaks Child & Family Photographer

Hill Farm is one of my favorite North Oaks treasures.  I take my kids there a lot to photograph and I love when other North Oaks families choose this location.  It’s such a fun place in every season.  This summer and just last week I was there with this lovely family.  I can’t believe how much this little girl has grown since the last time I took her pictures (at another “secret” location in North Oaks) I love watching families grow.  Anyway here are some sneak peeks and stay tuned once I finish us their gallery I will be posting some favorites over on Facebook.  Enjoy!

The Extending Roach Family | North Oaks Family Photographer

It’s so fun when I do an extended family session and the family in fact has “extended”  by adding new faces.  This family added another beauty to their family.  Big ol blue eyes.  And the other kiddos growing so fast too!  Time just gets away from me.  Anyway I’m just posting some sneak peeks here of this extended family session and in another week or so I’ll post more favorites on Facebook.  In the meantime enjoy your family!

Lake Fun Sneak Peeks | Plymouth, Minnesota Child & Family Photographer

I have to say I love when I get to a client session at a lake right around golden hour and mom says “we’re not afraid to get wet” You know what that means? It means a FUN photo session. It means your kids probably won’t be upset that paparazzi is following them around because hey who cares we are having fun! Seriously the best time . . . I can’t wait to share favorites on Facebook in a couple of weeks. In the meantime; enjoy!

Senior Session Sneak Peeks | North Oaks, Minnesota Senior Photographer

It amazes me all the time how fast time goes by.  Talking with this senior during his session just reminded me how soon my own son will be doing senior pics (I wonder if he’ll let me take them?)  I mean we still have 7 years but it’s going to be here before I know it!  Ok so I’m just going to enjoy the next few years but this guy is off to big things after high school.  Enjoy your last year ruling the school.
