This year’s senior class has created so many fun opportunities to be creative as a photographer. I’ve done sessions with cars, sports equipment, fun props like wands and light sabers. For Quinn’s session it was planes! It was so cool to head to the small airport in Lakeville and use a small plane for some of his photos!
Also, this is my first winter senior session. And as you all know with Minnesota weather in general, it is unpredictable sometimes
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.
One of my favorite parts of my job, is working with all sorts of different families and members of those families. Including the fur babies. Jane, Ron, and Emily are my across the street neighbors. They are the most wonderful people and neighbors and we won the best neighbor lottery when they moved in across the street.
They are oh so kind and patient with my family, including my boys who love their puppers, and of course them too.
Along with their 3 pups ranging from small to big Kiwi, Duke and, Faleen respectively, we met at Whitetail Woods in Lakeville for their winter mini session. I had a blast hanging out with all of them and trying to get coordinate the puppers as well as the peoples.
These are my friends Robin and Nissa with their girls, Nora, Maggie and Hattie. And they’re moving to Belize in a few days!! They are going to be missionaries and will be working in at a children’s home down there for three years. And I cannot be more excited for them. They’ve been gathering support, packing and selling things since October and now it’s time for them to head out to be the hands and feet of God.
Nissa asked if I could do a session for her mom and dad to have of the girls and her parents. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to capture some sweet moments with Mimi and Papa before their daughter and family left on their journey to Belize.
