Another year with the Mischke family! I see Allesha and most of her men folk on a regular basis through a boys book club we are both apart of, but it doesn’t hit me until their family picture time, that these boys are growing and becoming more mature. Ben was just a little guy when I started photographing their family and now look at him! He’s half the size of his dad! And Brad is a tall guy!

Sarah reached out to me in early spring to book a family session with her her family and in-laws, as a gift to her mother in-law for Mothers Day. I thought that was the sweetest thing ever. Also something the matriarch of the VanBenthusyen family would cherish for years to come.
I LOVE photographing this family. I’m sure I’ve said this before in previous blog posts about them. But they are the kindest, most wonderful group of people that I have had the privilege to work with. Seriously. I’ve photographed Kayleigh and Taylor’s family with her mom, dad and brother at one session. The next year I worked with them again, but with Taylor’s mom, dad and brother. This year, Kayleigh wanted EVERYONE! They were all together to celebrate little Oliver’s 1st birthday and what better way to continue the celebration than to get some family pictures done!
I have lived in Twin Cities for almost 12 years and have been photographing for about 5 years now, and I have not once photographed a family or senior in the cute little town of Northfield. Northfield reminds me of my hometown a bit with it’s old buildings and old fashioned charm. And let me tell you, the downtown area is beyond cute!
I think this session was the best way to kick off my Class of 2023 seniors. I said it in my sneak peeks of Molly’s session, holy buckets, she really did knock it out of the park!
