Burgess Family Portraits | Minneapolis Child Photography

A sweet family with three great kids - it's been a joy getting to know this crew over the last few years.  I'll be checking in with them in upcoming years, too so stay tuned!  Here are a few of my favorites from our recent studio session (even scooted in one myself). :)

Emily & Peter's E-Session | Minneapolis Winter Engagement Photography

Emily & Peter, who will be married in May, braved a chilly December Sunday for their engagement session.  (Winter sessions, in my opinion are an under-rated and under-utilized option - what a great way to add variety and uniqueness to your image collection!)  Then, to make their images even more personalized, Emily & Peter invited me to their Eden Prairie gym where they spend many evenings working out together.  Here's a fun example of just how personalized your wedding photography can be - the options to make it authentic are endless!  Enjoy!

Cora | 9 months | Minneapolis Baby Photographer

Checking in again with adorable little Cora at 9 months - and Mom and Dad this time, too!  What fun! :) 

Mini plug: With the New Arrival baby plan, clients get 3 sessions in their baby's first year.  Plan way ahead: book a maternity session too and your baby's newborn session is free.  So that's 5 sessions total: maternity, newborn, and approximately 3, 6, and 12 months!  Ok, back to Cora... :)

10.19.12 Kate & Chad | Minneapolis Wedding Photography

Kate & Chad had an elegant and sophisticated day at the McNamara Alumni Center (one of my new favs).  Their engagement session back in June was so them: in and around King's Wine Bar, where they had their first date.  Wine, fine tastes, family and friends, and good company and conversation thread through their wedding day.  I just love how personal and unique this couple made their event - it really is an expression of who they are as a pair and these two pair SO well together! :)  Many happy years ahead!  Cheers!

10.13.12 Lisa & Randy | New Richmond, WI | Midwest Wedding Photography

Lisa & Randy were a referral from a referral. I photographed Lisa's daughter Brier's wedding in 2011 and her friend Aimee's 2010 wedding. What a joy to be able to complete a trilogy with Lisa & Randy!  Me = honored. :)

Over in New Richmond, Wisconsin (just over the border) L & R's ceremony was at Cylon Chapel with a DIY reception - stunning! - at Blue Horse Farm.  How clever, crafty, stylized and cozy their day was - truly a success!  It may have been wet and chilly, but the Beer Tent was warm, the atmosphere was buzzing, and the guests were cheerful!  No detail went unattended - my favorite: homemade bread in baskets, homemade pie for dessert, and homemade jam as parting favors.  So sweet - just like the bride and groom, who truly, simply enjoy one another!  Congrats!
