 6 month old baby photography in Saint Paul

I can never believe how quickly these little ones grow up! I have already photographed Tristan’s newborn and 3 month photos and this week we did his 6 month session. It is always so much fun to see how much babies have changed in such a short amount of time. Next to newborn sessions, 6 months are my favorite. So, if you didn’t do a newborn session I would recommend waiting until this time. They have so much personality and are starting to become more independent so they don’t have to be in your arms the entire time. The best time to schedule your session is once your baby has learned to sit up by themselves. They will enjoy having their photo taken so much more.

Tristan was a very happy guy today with lots of smiles and mom sure helped bring those out. At this age their attention doesn’t last too long so we don’t usually get too much time to take pictures. We got so many amazing shots in a very short amount of time! I don’t know how they will pick their favorites.

I was very excited to use this adorable new sock monkey hat that I had purchased from Etsy recently. I think Tristan looked so sweet in it. Etsy is my favorite stop for prop shopping.

Daevon turns 3!

August 24th, 2011

If time goes by this fast for me as a photographer watching these children grow up, I can’t even imagine what it is like for the parents! I have been photographing Daevon since he was 2 months old. He has grown from an adorable baby into a handsome little man who has sooo much energy. […]

If time goes by this fast for me as a photographer watching these children grow up, I can’t even imagine what it is like for the parents! I have been photographing Daevon since he was 2 months old. He has grown from an adorable baby into a handsome little man who has sooo much energy. I wish he could share some with the rest of us! Today we went out to Como Park to take some photos. 3 years is so much more delightful to photograph that 2 years because they finally understand the concept of bribery 🙂 Today’s bribery was gummy worms and it only took one time for Daevon to understand that smiles earned WORMS! Sure… this only works for so long, but it worked for long enough. Look at his dashing smiles. What a good looking kid he is. Oh next year seems so far away but I bet it will sneak up on us fast once again just like it always does. Happy Birthday sweet boy!

Meet Mr. Brayden who just turned 1 year old! Isn’t he handsome? All boy with blond hair, blue eyes, and a smile that just makes you want to eat him up. We had fun hanging out at the park. Ok… well Brayden wasn’t too thrilled having his photo taken so we tried really hard to have a ton of fun and I think we got some really great photos! Mom and Dad did a super job at making Brayden smile. Sometimes it can be hard to photograph children when they recognize and for an unknown reason just simply do not like seeing a camera around. This can sometimes become a better opportunity to try to focus more on candid photos so that the session is not a loss. Sometimes those photos can capture the true personality of the child which can be cherished memories. I can’t WAIT to watch you grow up Brayden!

Welcome to the world beautiful baby boy! Tristan is the son of my friend’s Simona and Jory. So, Simona walks in the studio and says “so what do you have planned for Tristan today?” And I tell her… “Well I cut down a tree at my parents this week and I’m going to hang your baby from it. Let’s do this!” Luckily it turned out pretty precious. He fit so snug in the old laundry basket too. So cute! Newborns are my favorite to shoot and I feel so blessed that they have only been in this world for a few short days and then I get to spend time capturing their beautiful little faces. I do love my job!

Emilia the cutie patootie! This little girl is just overflowing with charm and is such a smart little girl. Like I’ve said before, I think that 2 years is such a tough time to have to have your picture taken. 2 year old’s are so busy learning that they don’t understand why they need to […]

Having fun at the park!


Emilia the cutie patootie! This little girl is just overflowing with charm and is such a smart little girl. Like I’ve said before, I think that 2 years is such a tough time to have to have your picture taken. 2 year old’s are so busy learning that they don’t understand why they need to stop moving more than 3 seconds to get their photo taken! But Mom and Dad did an amazing job and keeping this little girl busy so we could get some fun candid shots of her out at the park. She has the cutest little giggle and is so good at sharing her raisins. I love this cute pink lacy outfit I found for her to wear. What a doll!

Smile Emi!


Tickle Time!


Awww sooo sweet!

Beautiful eyes!

Oh my gosh! My angel baby is 2 years old already? Times sure does fly these days. Lahna is one of the cutest darn little girls in the whole world that I’ve ever gotten to work with. 2 year photos are hard! It’s tough being 2 and having to sit still and smile when there is so much to do and so many things to play with. Lahna sure did a pretty darn good job today! What a cutie!

Having fun!

Miss baby Alaina Jane is 6 months old already! And she is already sitting up too. It is so much fun watching these babies grow up before my eyes. It is now fall and time to start thinking about Christmas card photos so Mom and Dad wanted some outdoor family photo. Dad really likes weeping willow trees and I really do too so they picked this lake because of the beautiful trees and it was a perfect idea. We had a great sunny day but a little bit of wind so I had a lot of fun getting my reflector to sit still. (even with a sandbag!) I love all the fall leaves all over the ground and the golden evening light on their faces. Makes me want to heat up a cup of hot cider right now! Isn’t Alaina so cute in that big pile of leaves! Mom’s idea- she is very creative and always come with lots of suggestions to add to our sessions. What a cute little pumpkin 🙂

Like I always say… 2 year photos are pretty hard and this session was double trouble! All Mom and dad wanted was an adorable portrait of the two sisters sitting together but that just wasn’t going to happen without someone getting an eye poked out! I ventured up to their neck of the woods for this session which is close to Cold Spring. (Of course I stopped at the bakery while I was there!) We played out side in the woods for a while till the mosquitoes had gotten most of our blood and then called it a day. Got a few cute candids of the girls. I just adore these two. They are absolutely gorgeous children. I wanted to take them home with me. I wish they didn’t live so far away so we could play again another day.

Today we took photos at a little green pasture by her parents house with her and her 2 year old sister. It was a beautiful day. A little breeze and the temperature was just right. At six it can be a little harder to get out a real smile, especially when you have to share your photo day with your little sister. So, we talked about- BOYS! How cute! Young crushes 🙂 What a fun day girls day we had today.

Here is cutie Terra Renee again and guess what? She is already 2 years old! Oh my does time fly. Terra is the sweetest, daintiest beautiful girl ever. Today we went out to a little bench in Cottage Grove by her parents house. This is an example that you really can do portraits just about anywhere. I brought along a porcelain tea set and we had tea for a while. What little girl doesn’t love that? Then we walked around around the grassy area and picked some while flowers. It was a lovely day with a little breeze. After our day in the grass we headed back to Mom and Dad’s for a birthday cupcake! Terra’s favorite part! How precious is that smile? Happy Birthday sweet girl. 🙂
