Introducing my 2008 senior models! These two beautiful girls are soon to be high school seniors and have had the opportunity to be my reps for the year. They will receive a complimentary full day senior portrait session in addition to the test shoot they already did. They will also be given 50 rep cards to hand out to their friends, and for each friend who schedules a session and mentions her name, she will get $50 credited to her own portrait order. If any 2009 graduates are interested in signing up as a rep for next year, send me an email at

Here's Mandi. She was great to work with, and toughed it out through some really strong wind. Here are the results. Aren't those crystal blue eyes just striking?

Here's Nicole! We took a little trip to downtown Hastings, Minnesota and were able to get these great shots of her by the textures of the buildings. Gorgeous!

I'm just heading off to bed after working on some proofing, but wanted to share a little since I've been slacking lately! This little sweetie is actually a friend of my own little Nina. I think she likes bubbles, don't you?

I cannot believe it's taken this long for me to post! I am so sorry!!! I have been SWAMPED. My schedule was looking great. I had all the dates filled up where I wanted them to be to keep me busy, yet steady; enough time to keep up with everything and everything was running smoothly. Well, then I got a couple of calls from new parents who wanted their newborn photographed while they were still tiny, and well, I can't turn down a tiny new baby. So I happily fit them into my schedule. Well then, I got a call from the Foursome Kid's Clothing store in Wayzata, who is remodeling their baby and toddler departments and wants to use some of my work on their walls. Well that's such a great opportunity for me to show off my work and get recognition, so of course I jumped at that chance! Guess what? That means more sessions added to my already busy calendar, but I happily take on the challenge!

Fast forward two weeks and I'm booked to full capacity, no time to catch up, two weddings to shoot, and guess what? My computer crashes! AHH! Could there be any better timing? Really? So now I'm still super busy, fully booked for the next month, trying to get used to my new computer, lots of orders to process, etc etc etc. But, I had to stop in and share some of my sessions with you, so here you have it. This little girl was a doll. She was so much fun to work with and her family is so nice! Excuse the notes on some of them. They were my suggestions to them on which ones I thought would look great on their wall. I'll post more from other sessions later. Gotta go catch up on proofing!

Oh my goodness, were these babies just precious! Mom and dad didn't think they'd cooperate, but nope, they were perfect angels. Born early, these tiny babies just came home recently and I was lucky enough to document some of their first moments. I love my job!

I had the chance to photograph this little girl in the fall, and it's amazing how much children change in just a small amount of time! She was a toddler then, and now she's become a big girl, with TONS of energy! I'm glad I got to document that.

Here's sweet baby "R". This was her second session with me, and I'm excited to watch her grow throughout her first year! Isn't she beautiful?
Look at the eyes on this little girl! Wow! She is going to be quite the heartbreaker in a few years, let me tell you! She's got such a spunky little personality. It was a lot of fun working with her.
What a workout! This little 18 month old boy sure kept me on my toes! He was so excited to get out to the park and run run run! I don't think he stopped running the whole time. Isn't he cute?
