When this mom suggested this location I was so excited, I had never shot photos there! I have shot photos in so many different locations that I felt like I had been to every nook and cranny of the Twin Cities. I had heard that St. Anthony on Main was beautiful and I should do a session there, but I always ended up shooting on the other side of the river (my comfort zone). I don’t know why it took me so long to finally do a session here!!! Main street has a small town feel with old, but kept up, cute little shops and a stair case that is every photographers dream! Then you head across that fabulous bridge on to Nicollet Island, which has so many fun spots to shoot photos at too!
I can’t believe this peanut is already ONE! It feels just like yesterday we were taking her newborn pictures! She is still to date my most smiley newborn I have ever taken pictures of and she still is, even a year later is such a smiley happy little girl. She is definitely surrounded by people who love her to pieces.
Being a photographer is such a fast paced profession, never a dull moment, which I LOVE! I always love the last minute call from a close friend, with one day notice, asking if I can squeeze her in. I asked her if she could come out to St. Anthony on Main, as that’s where I would be shooting that evening. She was ecstatic that I could fit her in for a mini session!
“My girlfriend had her very first girls weekend in five years (since having kids) and I was able to hang out with her children for the few nights mommy was away. With her 30th birthday approaching I wanted to surprise her with great pictures of her kids. Jessica can always get the most natural smiles, so of course I had to call her the night before begging her for an impromptu session. She always delivers!!!” -Angelle
Can this get any sweeter? Yes, yes it can. These two beautiful kids were so easy to photograph and so sweet. I am not sure who had more fun, me or them! I see why Angelle wanted to capture them! This is such a wonderful gift and it was so thoughtful of Angelle to think of me to capture these moments for this mom! I hope you LOVE your surprise photo shoot Crystal!
