A Family Session ~ Bloomington, MN

I know, 9 mile creek again. I just can’t help myself, this location is so pretty! This time, things were MUCH different… I brought a boy, his dog and his parents on down to the creek for this session. As I posted before, sometimes the water is different, and this time around, the water was a little higher due to the rain we had. So, for everyone’s safety, there wasn’t too much climbing on the rocks, but their were leaves!

When we first got there Easton was really tired, he fell asleep on the car ride there and did not want to wake up! I didn’t think he would want anything to do with me or waking up, which is always a struggle, but the show must go on! What finally got him up? Running, lots of running! Mom and dad definitely must have their hands full at home, always on the go. The rest of the session was running and playing with his pup! We got to the end of the session and thought we would play in the leaves a bit. Bruce, their pup definitely knows how to put on a show. They would throw a pile of leaves in the air and Bruce would fly through the sky and bite them out of the air. So funny!

Thank you for allowing me to capture your family’s memories and I look forward to capturing more in the future!

A Maternity Session ~ Japanese Gardens, Bloomington MN

A lot of woman choose to not do maternity pictures because they think they are REALLY pregnant and often don’t want the memory of their “size”. Which is where I like to come in and try to change that way of thinking to see the absolute beauty and grace that pregnancy is. When Kristen contacted me about doing her maternity pictures I could hear it in her voice how ecstatic she was that she was having a baby! AND couldn’t wait for maternity pictures! Kristen embraced her pregnancy, all the joys that come with it and worked it to the fullest. We started her session off where it all began for her and her husband, the same place they did their wedding photos. Taking these pictures at the Bloomington Japanese Gardens was sentimental to them, and I always encourage people to choose their OWN place for pictures. I say this a lot to people, and this is a prime example; I can work my magic and manipulate photos as much as I want to make a picture gorgeous and full of emotion but its really when you add that sentimental value to your session. It brings YOUR photos to life, almost to a whole new level, for YOU! These photos will mean so much more to you when its someplace that meant a lot to you.

We finished their session right in their home for some more lifestyle fun ones! Doesn’t get more personal than that! The other part about this session that is SUPER exciting, is that they chose to be surprised and wait until babys arrival on the gender, rather than find out early! It’s not very common to keep it a surprise anymore so I am really excited to wait and find out myself what they are having! (PS- Totally think its a GIRL!) Congratulations again and I can’t wait to meet your little bundle of joy when he/she arrives!
