How CUTE is this little darlin'? Hope came in with mom and grandma last week and she just had a ball with all my props and fun girlie things. Though we couldn't get a smile out of her, we still ended up with some fantastic images. I'll be in touch with the rest of them soon!

so sweet!

These two lovebirds came in for an engagement session last week. Kaycee and Josh totally had that "young love" glow about them! They were so sweet with one another and just very loving at all times. It was so great to just watch them interact - no doubt a beautiful wedding and marriage is around the corner. Enjoy the sneak peek, guys - I'll e-mail you with gallery information soon! :)

two little girlies

Jamie brought in her two little girls last week for a session. I had a total flashback to my life about 6 months ago. You see - her Kyra just turned 2 and Molly is 4 months (20 months apart....just like my girls!). It was fun for me to watch them interact and think back to that time...believe it or not they've changed so much in that 6 month period! Kyra and Mollie were just absolute dolls and I had a great time at our session. I'll be in touch with gallery information soon!

the ties that bind

Jenna (who came in for a session with her boyfriend last year) called me up a few weeks ago to schedule a session with her 3 best friends. I was thrilled to do it! My college friends and I (we dubbed ourselves the "Super 6") had done the exact same thing back in our day. I had a few flashback moments to my college fun listening to these hilarious girls interact and just be so carefree! We had a TON of fun and there are some great shots to prove it. I'll be in touch with your gallery info soon!

a few more...

There's just too many fun ones to choose from! :)

a beautiful bride, a beautiful day!

Maureen (Mo) is such a great friend of mine! Imagine my thrill when she asked me to photograph her wedding! She and Sam were married two weeks ago on the most perfect fall day. At one point during the day I pulled Mo aside for a few minutes because I just had to gush to her...seriously, she made such a STUNNING bride I could hardly stand it! The whole day was perfect from start to finish and I have the most beautiful pictures to prove it. Mo - I'm nearly done with your gallery and I'll be in touch with the details soon. For now, enjoy this sneak peek and just close your eyes and remember how blissful that day was. Congrats!

Tyler came in with his parents last week for a great session on a BEAUTIFUL day (it's hard to believe it was only a week ago as I look out my window and see snowflakes now). This is one fantastic kiddo - he was so generous with his smiles and was just the sweetest thing. I hope you guys enjoy this little sneak peek - check your e-mail for a message about your gallery soon!

go bears!

Although a Minnesota native (and lover of the state at heart), I have to hubby has turned me into a Bears fan. Kurt ADORES football and watching the Bears is one of his greatest joys. My cousin also married a Bears fan(atic) and the two of them bond over their love for the team. When I was asked to photograph their cute clan of kids, I just knew it would involve some orange and navy jerseys. Sure enough - it did! Check out how cute they are!

and one on the way

Becca was my very first "mommy friend" after moving back to Winona and staying at home with my Mary. We clicked over coffee and conversation and our girls became fast friends. Every year Becca's mother in law comes to town in the fall and they get pictures with the whole crew. As I type this, there may even be one more to add to the bunch (Becca is due any day now!). Here's a quick sneak peek for you, I'll be in touch with your gallery soon!
