Eeeek! I just love how Mr. Xander’s photos turned out! How handsome is he in this old radio flyer? Today we took some great family photos around Minnehaha Park. Every time I go to this location I find new awesome places to take fun photos. The sunlight today was also just great, streaming through the tree tops.  one year old in radio flyer at minnehaha falls one year old boy photography suspenders minnehaha falls one year old boy photography wearing cap and suspenders minnehaha falls

Such a beautiful wedding, on such a rainy day! Emily is the sister of my good friend, Monica. It was an honor to be able to photograph another special event for this family. Emily picked the most gorgeous wedding colors and added in beautiful succulents; her dress was stunning. The ladies got ready at the St. Paul Hotel while the boys hung out at Hermes Haberdashery. If you haven’t checked out Hermes, I highly recommend. Great service and a super cute shop. The wedding took place at Irving Park, quite picturesque, and finished up at the Science Museum. I had a wonderful time. Hopefully I’ll get to photograph some more Hecklinger siblings in the future! bride and groom at st paul library mn beautiful wedding couple in lowertown allies st paul mn Bride and groom outside St Paul Hotel in Garden Kissing beautiful bride outside st paul public library mn Bride and groom outside st paul public library mn bridal party wedding at Irvine Park St Paul MN Wedding party in lowertown st paul mn breaker

 I have my friends and family to thank for helping my business start out and grow over 10 years ago. Yet, even after all this time, I am always the most honored when a friend chooses me to capture some of the most cherished memories of their lives. Mr. Zane is the handsome little boy of my good friend Taylor. Taylor and I worked together growing up. It has been so neat watching her become such and amazing mother. Newborn boy in wooden chest with teddy bearsNewborn boy with mama

I just love this photo of the two of them. So sweet ♥ Newborn boy in red santa bucket

I generally take off the month of December which means I haven’t many opportunities to photograph Christmas themed photos. I also did know we were going to be taking a Christmas photo- luckily I’ve become excellent at improvising over the years. You just never know what you can find in your closets that can really add to a seemingly simple photo such as this one.   Newborn boy with football

Another football fan. So many of the little boys who come by my studio start their love of sports from the day they are born.  Newborn boy close-up

I can’t wait to watch you grow up little man!

Mr. Kylan is so darn handsome and was a ton of fun to work with. We got great smiles and even managed to get a frog pose. I love this old wood crate that I found at an antique store in St. Peter, MN last month. Dad is big into photography so it was great having him there as my helper. When I get little boys in the studio, I often learn about the family’s love of sports. Check out the super cute knit hockey skates that Mom and Dad bought for this little guy. ♥  beautiful newborn boy studio photographyNewborn baby frog poseNewborn baby wearing skates  breaker

Nothing is more heart warming than when parents come back to see me to photograph the newborn photos of baby #2. This little man is adorable Zander. We had a lot of fun and he was such a good little guy for me. It was also the first time in a very long time where I walked away from a long newborn session of a naked baby where I stayed clean! For this session, I tried out my new wood style rubber floor by Baby Dream Backdrops. I love how portable it is and I think it gave the photos a great texture. I’ll be exited to use it again in the future.

My little buddy Brayden is already 2 years old! I can’t believe it! He is growing up to be so handsome. He is a spitting image of both of his parents, the lucky guy. What I can’t get over is that he is going to pass them on height in about 5 more seconds. What […]

 

My little buddy Brayden is already 2 years old! I can’t believe it! He is growing up to be so handsome. He is a spitting image of both of his parents, the lucky guy. What I can’t get over is that he is going to pass them on height in about 5 more seconds. What a tall guy! Well two year photos is always a work out… for me and the parents. Right Mandy and Brent? Especially to pull out all those smiles. But, we got em. I just love that they brought his red trike. Not only did it add color to the photos and keep him entertained but it also preserved fantastic memories of a toy that is very dear to him. Here are some fun photos from our session together:
