The Playshop

A week ago today I was attending the ever so fabulous Heather Cole’s Playshop in Missouri, a short 7 hour drive from Minneapolis and worth EVERY SINGLE SECOND ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t even begin to express my gratitude to Heather for putting together a Playshop like this, she dished her every secret, advice, workflow… you name it, she shared it! Not to mention those addictive Dove chocolates, which I went out and bought more of as soon as I got home. We had an amazing couple to photograph during the afternoon, they bared the FREEZING cold snow/rain/wind for us, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Danyelle and Josh!

When Heather told us we’d be photographing Danyelle and Josh later on in the day, I was ecstatic. I had seen their engagement and wedding photos on Heather’s blog and thought they had to be the most gorgeous couple EVER.ย  My friend Pam and I had gushed over their engagement photos, extremely jealous of Danyelle and her beautiful eyes, hair, clothes… okay Danyelle we just love you! Here are some of my favorites from our QUICK session, and can you believe all of these were taking either inside Heather’s garage or out in the front yard. Yeah, she’s just that AWESOME. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cassie+Jeff+Baby Treston

On Saturday I had my last session of 2009, and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect couple to spend it with! I made the trek to “Canada” to meet with Cassie and Jeff at their beautiful home. We were lucky enough to have it warm up to 30 degrees, so we popped outside for some family pictures before baby Treston arrives in about 7 weeks! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so excited to meet and photograph him when he arrives! Thanks for spending the afternoon with me, it was so nice to meet you guys!

I think this one is my favorite ๐Ÿ™‚

Cassie & Jeff, you guys are going to be GREAT parents! Treston is so lucky!

I had so much fun with this family, these boys kept me on my toes and laughing! We met up in downtown Chaska to play at the park for a little bit and then explored the town a little bit. The boys are so excited for their baby sister “Watermelon” to come next month,ย  they are going to be great big brothers! Thanks again H Family, it was great to spend the afternoon with you. I can’t wait to meet Watermelon! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fun at the Sculpture Garden

When it’s 64 degrees on a November afternoon, everyone comes out of hiding! I met this amazing family down at the Sculpture Garden and it was packed! It seemed that everyone in the Twin Cities was out and about. We played some hide and seek, some funny faces and great family photos. Seriously, what a good lookin’ family! It also just happened to be Gracie’s 4th birthday, November birthdays are the BEST! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again for coming out on a gorgeous afternoon, I hope you had a great birthday dinner Gracie and ate LOTS of ice cream!

Misty + John Engaged

As my grandmother always says “You need to get a ‘real’ job so you can fall in love. That’s where I met your grandfather, ย your mother and father met at work and your aunt and uncle.” ย Well Misty and John definitely listened to what my grandmother has been preaching to me for years! They met while working at Johnson Brothers Liquor and have been together ever since. We bared the unseasonably chilly weather for some photos in Excelsior and then headed home to meet their little babe Seven, one of the cutest pugs I have EVER seen.


Misty, you are BEAUTIFUL! ๐Ÿ™‚


Representing the Miami shirt for John, he’s a HUGE Hurricanes fan!


Ugh, that face… adorable!

Melissa & Evan Engaged

Melissa and Evan are such easy going people, our previous session were canceled due to the unpredictable Minnesota weather… we had the coldest 2 weeks in October EVER! Finally we lucked out with a beautiful fall afternoon, may have been a smidge windy but it was far better than a snow storm! I had such a great time with Melissa and Evan as we strolled around Excelsior, they are two of the kindest people! I got to hear the story of how Evan proposed to Melissa, and there need to be more romantic men like him in the world. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again for being so flexible with all our rescheduling, it was so nice to meet both of you!
