Gavin’s 1st Birthday Party

Last weekend I spent my afternoon with the P family celebrating Gavin’s 1st birthday with all of their friends and family. It was an AWESOME birthday party, Lindsay and Adam left no detail out; the food, drinks, presents and LOTS of guests. We did a few pictures of just Gavin before all the guests arrived and I swear I could have photographed him for HOURS. His smile is infectious and those eyes, oh boy look out girls… we’ve got another heartbreaker 🙂

A little risky business action before the PARTY

Gavin’s aunt and uncle who came all the way from Milwaukee for his birthday party!

Thanks for having me over Lindsay, Adam and Gavin! It was so great to meet you! 🙂

Baby Clara

Meet Clara, just a little over 2 weeks old and she was so alert during our session, she did not want to miss a thing! But I love when babes are awake during our sessions, so we can get some shots of their beautiful eyes. Look at those eyes, awwwww 🙂 Thanks for having me over Pete and Lucas, hope you are getting some sleep!

We had to get a picture with her future college, UMD, she didn’t seem too excited about it 🙂

The proud new parents!

Meet Emerson Rose

She’s finally here, after 9 long months she arrived yesterday at 2:39pm and weighs 8lbs 8oz… Miss Emerson Rose. I have been impatiently patiently waiting to find out this beautiful lady’s name, it was the one detail her mama kept secret throughout the WHOLE pregnancy. I don’t know how she did it, I wouldn’t have been able to keep it a secret. So this afternoon I had the honor of going down to the hospital to meet her and love the little burrito, congratulations to Mom and Dad! I hope she lets you get some sleep tonight!!! Love to your brand new little family!

Thanks for letting me come over and meet Ethan 🙂 It’s always great to see you all!!! Here’s a little sneak, I know Shannon has been dying to see them!

A Decade

The year was 1999 and nobody knew what was going to happen when the clock struck midnight and we moved into the year 2000… Y2K. The computers didn’t explode, the TVs still worked… life was good 🙂 I’ve been reading many different magazines, news articles and watching TV as they count down the most monumental moments in the last decade. Yes… DECADE. It got me to thinking, what have I done in the last decade… how did it start, how did it end and what went on in the middle.

10 years ago, I was a little freshmen in this huge world called High School. I had my first job at a little store in my neighborhood with my best friend Cait. I spent every available minute with my friends, playing boot hockey, Super Nintendo, snowboarding, going out on the lake… not a care in the world. Over the next 10 years…I got my license, fell in love, made friendships that have lasted a decade and others that have dissipated and I graduated from high school. I left my life in Minnesota, went to college in Iowa (yes Iowa) and met amazing friends that changed my life. I graduated from college and fell in love with photography. And now, tomorrow starts a new day, a new year, a new decade and more adventures to look forward to. I don’t know what will happen, but I know I will enjoy every moment of it and appreciate all that life has to offer! Thanks to everyone who has made this past year unforgettable and to all my clients you are amazing and I am blessed that you open up your lives to me.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy new year! Cheers to 2010! 🙂

A post is always better with a picture, the amazing family I got to spend my last session of 2009 with…

Happy Holidays!

The first time in my life, I can look outside on Christmas and see TONS of fresh snow! It definitely is a white Christmas here in Minnesota, and I wouldn’t ask for it any other way. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, and be safe if you’re traveling about! 🙂

This is my brother’s favorite ornament on our tree… I wonder why 😉
