Emily and I had our weekly lunch date today, where we talk a little business, a little life and a whole lot of photography. As we were sitting at D’ Brian’s she asked if I had checked her blog today. I hadn’t checked it yet, so she grabs her iPhone and pulls up the video she posted on her blog this morning. I’m so glad she shared it with me because it truly encompasses one of the many reasons why I love photography. It’s hard to express in words why I truly enjoy taking pictures, but I think as you watch this you can see why pictures are such an important part in my world 🙂
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Today is my Dad’s birthday, I won’t share on here his age because I’m sure he would not like that, but I consider him 40 years young 🙂 Right dad?
We are celebrating today with some quality family time, even though it would be even better if my brother was here to celebrate with us. So our plan is to go see Julia Roberts new movie Duplicity and then have a nice dinner at Wild Fire in Eden Prairie, doesn’t that sound like a great way to celebrate your birthday? To tell you a little bit about my dad, he’s been telling me since I was teeny tiny that I’m not allowed to date until I’m 30 (very funny dad), and that he can’t wait for day when he can use the line from Clueless “I’ve got a .45 and a shovel and no one will miss you.” And he wonders why I never bring a guy home to meet the parents, haha! Yes he’s quite the jokester but he’s also one of the kindest, supportive and loving people in my life. I don’t know what I would do without him.
Anyways, just wanted to let my dad know how much I love him and I hope he was a WONDERFUL birthday!!!
*Below are a few pictures that I got from my uncle a few years ago and wanted to share some old school pictures of my awesome dad 🙂 I swear I can see how much we look alike in the first one!
Happy Birthday Papa!!! 🙂
On Monday, which happened to be exactly one week after Will was born, Emily and I had the opportunity to go over and take loads of pictures of him. As I sit here editing all his pictures, I can’t get over how perfect and well behaved he was for us. He let us move him all over the place, didn’t fuss or cry at all, and we only had two accidents (you never know with little boys), but Emily was quick with the blanket so it was all covered. 🙂 He slept for almost the entire time we were there and hopefully he continued to sleep so Mom could get a nap after we left! Hope you all enjoy the little sneak peek at Will’s session, he’s just too cute for words so I’ll stop at that! Thanks again K, D, Will and Mutsy for having us over!
This is by far one of my favorite images from the day… totally looks like a little man, doesn’t he?
Because one picture just wasn’t enough of Aidan, I wanted to put up a couple more from our session this weekend! Being around Aidan makes reminds me why I love working with children, they can make you laugh at the drop of a hat and constantly remind you to stop and enjoy life. I had so much fun with him and can’t wait to hang out again! Thanks for letting me take pictures of you Aidan, it was a blast!
I just got home from a brisk and windy walk on this Saturday evening and started to edit the pictures from my afternoon shoot with Aidan. There are not enough words to describe this little man, he impressed me the moment he started singing Jonas Brothers “Burnin’ Up” and knew every word of it. Side note: he’s 4 years old and knows every word to the song! 🙂 It was probably one of the cutest moments ever! This was during our evening when he helped all of us ladies at our cookie making party, he was the best cookie decorator EVER! What’s a cookie without tons of frosting and even more sprinkles on top? It’s just not a cookie at all! I just started editing them and wanted to at least put one picture up for his mom, who by the way is an amazing realtor for Edina Realty if anyone is in the market for buying or selling a house! Hope you guys enjoyed your Caribou!!! See you soon!
