TRISTAN: { 9 MONTH SESSION }

April 15th, 2012

My little Tristan buddy is already 9 months old! He is becoming so active and keeping his attention is becoming increasingly harder. He can now crawl away really fast so a lot of nice posed portraits at this age is pretty rare. Mom and I got a pretty good work out today! Tristan loves singing […]

My little Tristan buddy is already 9 months old! He is becoming so active and keeping his attention is becoming increasingly harder. He can now crawl away really fast so a lot of nice posed portraits at this age is pretty rare. Mom and I got a pretty good work out today! Tristan loves singing the song Patty Cake Patty Cake Bakers Man so we sang it about 50 times today while I jumped up and down and blew lots of bubbles. All in all, I think we got some cute shots. Three more months and we will be doing his one year session. Those are always a lot of fun. I can’t wait to see how they turn out.

This winter I had the honor of photographing beautiful baby girl Emmie Lorah. She was just perfect, pink, and Daddy’s little girl. I have a love for hanging those little ones from the tree branches and for little Emmie I purchased and comfy new wrap for her to lay in. The branch is from from a birch tree that I cut down from out on the woods and drilled holes in to fit the tops of my light stands. All in all, I think it turned out pretty darn cute.

Newborns are one of my favorite subjects. The trick to perfect newborn photos it to get the little ones in the studio when they are under 2 weeks old. The younger they are the more creative the posing can be. Sometimes mom doesn’t quite feel ready to leave the house yet in this time. That’s ok. Just let me know and I can bring my studio setup to you.

And I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again… accidents are going to happen. Little ones are going to have something come out of them from some angle at least a few time during the session. Don’t worry, I’ll be prepared and try not to feel bad. We got this cute pink shot above right before Emmie decided to water herself, the blanket, the floor, oh… and Dad. ๐Ÿ™‚newborn baby girl st paul mn

Welcome to the world little Emmie Lorah! I can’t wait to watch you grow!ย  xoxo

ย 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.

Miko: {8 weeks adorable}

Who doesn’t LOVE kittens? They are the most adorable tiny little fluff balls that just want to be held and want to play and are just oh so cute cute cute! I was so excited when a client got a hold of me and asked… so? would you photograph my kitten? HECK YA I will! […]

Who doesn’t LOVE kittens? They are the most adorable tiny little fluff balls that just want to be held and want to play and are just oh so cute cute cute! I was so excited when a client got a hold of me and asked… so? would you photograph my kitten? HECK YA I will! How about right this second, and then I might just stick him in my pocket and bring him home with me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Little Miko was 8 weeks old when we did his photo session. Boy do those critters grow fast and run fast and get bored fast. We went out to Battle Creek to play in the grass and it didn’t take long until he was ready to go home so not to many poses for this little guy. But all in all, it’s pretty tough to take a photo of a kitten that isn’t cute. So if you have a kitten, puppy, horse, goat… monkey… mouse… bunny… anything young and fur-ball like and want photos done, let me know! I don’t get asked to do this often enough. (please no snakes or spiders- must be fur-ball in nature)

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!

This summer I had the privilege of assisting for my girlfriend at Jackie and Kyle’s wedding which was held outdoors at beautiful Green Haven Golf Course. This couple was so much fun. I really had a blast. The day started out with a first look on the gulf course and Jackie surprised her sweetheart with an engraved wedding band. It was pretty a perfect moment.

I love outdoor weddings. It is such a bummer that you just never know what the weather is going to be but for most of them the weather turns out great which makes for amazing photos with beautiful backgrounds. Her wedding colors really popped against the green as well. Super fun. Did I mention that they had been together for 8 years? It was time for a crazy celebration!

I know I say this a lot but… one of my FAVorite things to do is to assist on weddings for my photographer friends. It is so much fun when you get to watch and learn what different styles of techniques they use. And even better, I get to keep my eye out of all those fun candid moments while they are so busy concentrating on the formal photos. This is a wedding I assisted on for Nygaard Photography. When I work with Luke I wish I could record the whole day because there is just so much information that I can soak up from him. Jesse & Kellie were so much fun to work with. What a beautiful bride!!! I had a fabulous time. Here are a few images I managed to sneak in during the day.

Perfect!

Umm hello? It just canโ€™t be easy looking this darn hott! What a fun and crazy day we had today! Tornados touching down, torrential down pours, oh my gosh but they turned out great! I love the back grounds that we found to work with and how all the colors flowed together. It can be tricky finding fun placing to work with when shooting boudoir photographs such as these. We used a friends back yard that had a beautiful green marsh in back and then we traveled out to downtown St. Paul which is continuously one of my favorite back drops to use. Boudoir photographs make a perfect gift for that someone special in your life. Great job Jessie! This was super 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sure you remember Aubree from previous years. I can’t believe this cute girl is already 6 years old! 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ What a fun day girls day we had today.
