I love this tradition I’ve started of going back through all the sessions I’ve done in the past year. It’s fun to remember all the families, couples and seniors I’ve had the honor of photographing this year. This year’s sessions was full of new adventures including new shooting locations, seniors with sports equipment, cars, wands and instruments. It was so much fun growing in this way, of adapting to situations that I haven’t encountered before in the 5 years I’ve been in business! I am SO grateful for each and everyone of my clients this year for allowing me to capture these memories for them!

I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve photographed the Johnson family. We’re maybe up to number 5?. They have been one of my biggest supporters of my business since the beginning. The last couple of years we’ve gotten together for their family pictures it’s either been freezing for the month of October or swealtering. This year, it was almost perfect weather.

I just LOVE the outfits that the Daly family showed up for their downton Farmington family session last month. I loved how it is very chic and would look great on Christmas cards. I’ve done a few senior sessions downtown Farmington before but never a family session and it was so much fun with Marie and her menfolk.

It all started because two people fell in love. Sounds super cheesy and cliche, but hey, it’s true, and I like it.

I always enjoy the ideas Autumn’s mama comes up with for her yearly pictures, last year it was all her stuffed animals, the year before that it was rocks, this year was no different. Vintage Coca-Cola.

Jessica reached out to me in December to do a couples session with her and her hubby in the Minnesota winter. At the time there wasn’t a stitch of snow on the ground and all I was thinking, uhhh maybe we wait until January? Maybe we’d get some snow by then. 🤞🏻 The temps changed from freezing to basically spring weather from the end of December up to the day of their session, and I PRAYED hard that we just get a tiny bit of dusting to add a bit of magical dusting of snow on the pine trees. The night before session it snowed a tiny bit to answer my session prayers.

I seriously could not have asked for a nicer evening than the one I spent with the Wroten family at Whitetail woods! Joleen’s parents were visiting for a bit late in September and she thought it’d be a perfect opportunity to grab some photos with them while they were here.
