Last fall I was so lucky to be able to photograph this wonderful Caledonia family. Great happy and courteous boys! Very impressive.

We had a fun time at Winnebago Campground, enjoying a perfect day.

Here are some of my favorites from that day! Enjoy!

Boys…boys…boys… Sweet boys!

Earlier this winter…on a cold winter’s day…these boys came to my house, warmed up by the fire…and then we sent them outside. Thanks for braving the chilly temperature guys!!!

We were really lucky with the pictures, because we really didn’t have many snow days this winter. They happened to come right after some nice snowfall…and…voilà…sweetness meet white!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

 

Just a few days ago we had our first snowstorm this winter. We were all excited for a new chance to play in the snow. Besides all the fun things we are planning on doing in and on the snow…what an amazing sight!!! We went to Caledonia for their Winter Wonderland parade…I felt just like a little kid…the snow just kept on falling…with flakes almost as large as snowballs (well, not quite, but it sounded good)…we got our boots and snow gear out and just enjoyed!

Another really nice thing about having snow…it just get’s you in that Christmas spirit! I will be baking gingerbread cookies this week, maybe some lefse and krumkaker as well. Mmm…it feels like Christmas!

I have also been busy making Christmas cards…for my clients. Don’t expect any cards until after Christmas from our family.  : )

Here are some of the cards I have been working on this year. Enjoy!

 

It was practically the very last day of our beautiful fall weather. The sun was soft and going down, fast.

These four handsome boys were really really great! The three oldest modeled for me while also trying to help me get the youngest one to be a part of it all. All he wanted to do was run and play.

I caught a glimpse of Kolton peeking at his brothers one time, closing his eyes and giving me the biggest cheeser ever. It was hilarious!

We quickly ran out of sunshine, but still got a last few sweet shots with some background lighting around the boys.

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

These two brothers were such a treat to photograph!!!

I went to their farm and we found all kinds of great spots around their house. Some weeds, a little cement, a dark cave of a barn, a pumphouse, the barnbridge, the silo…and finally I said. Whew! Is there any other place you’d like to take pictures? Of course Reid had one…the swing…off we went…and snapped a few more. Gotta LOVE it!

These boys were amazing! No fuss…just awesomeness! Thanks boys!

Here are some of my many favorite shots! Enjoy!

These kids are just fun fun fun to work with! Of course the latest addition to the family, Hadley, is a heartbreaker. She totally pulls off the cute and the attitude…

Here they are…in the latest addition of products that I offer…the MINI BOOKS. These are wallet size…and fits perfectly in even a smaller purse. The covers are magnetic, so they stick together. There is also an option to add a clear cover to store them in.

Earlier this fall I did pictures of two sweet brothers; Jackson and Jacoby. When I pulled up I had envisioned them sitting in front of the house…did a bunch of pictures…and by the time we got around to my idea…the boys were done. I came back to get just that one shot and think it turned out super sweet. It ended up on the Christmas card I made for the family. I will show some cards in my next post.

The house picture and another favorite were both worked to look a little more artsy. I can’t wait to see how the second one will look on the wall!

Enjoy!

I had the pleasure of making quite a few Christmas Cards this season. Here are a few. Enjoy! Also, wishing everyone a very merry Christmas and everything good for the new year. God Jul og Godt Nytt År!

Laura called me to come out and get some pictures of her kids. I had fun chasing the kids around. Gavin was as willing as Gunnar was not. Gunnar wanted to drive the ATV around instead. Forget doing pictures, this kid is a machine buff.  : ) We had fun and got a variety of fun images.  For their 4×8 Christmas card I did a variety of styles and Laura immediately went for the retro look. Thanks for the fun day!

This little princess was her mother’s favorite for the 5×7 folded watercolor card. It turned out beautifully!  Kenny herself came up with the wording, which I think is soooo sweet!

Artsy feet. Too cute. I especially love how Pauley’s shorts look so short and Gabe’s shorts look soooo oversized. Let’s not overlook the baby chubs on Libby’s arms. Sweet!

My sister-in-law called me up, as usual  : ). “Hey, Kathrine, would it be any trouble to make a card for us?” Of course not! I love making cards and took the cute shot she emailed, enhanced it and made three different ideas. Both her kids and ours agreed on this design. This card is a 5×5 and as always metallic. I LOVE metallic!

The first time I met Heather and Abe and their kids I did pictures for little Theron. He’s not so little anymore and this time I got to photograph the whole family. First we went up to a cabin and did some shots by appletrees and tall weeds. What a blast! Later I went to their hose to do a couple of headshots. Young kids are always challenging, because you have about two minutes to get what you need…then the’re DONE!  : ) Big brother Joey and Theron were awesome and I had a hard time putting my camera down. Thanks for playing with me! This is the front to their 5×7 folded watercolor card. The blue turned out just as bright and blue as I had imagined. The icy blue is Heather’s favorite color as well. Cool!

Here is the inside. I just love the wording Heather added. Gotta love those toes!

What a sweeeeet moment with the boys! I have to do something artsy with this shot later. It is just too cute!!!

This is our card this year. I wanted a little space to add a personal message to each and every one. Usually I add a letter with updates from the past year, but this year I just didn’t have, or take, the time. There’s always next year! I enjoy getting them, so I’ll do my best.

…and the backside.

What a beautiful day for a walk on the bluffs of rural south-east Minnesota! This fun family went everywhere I asked. The boys wanted to do more exploring than posing, but once we found the apple trees they were very happy. It was wild how all the trees seemed to have different kinds of apples. The bright red ones were my amazing. Here are some of my favorites. 

What a beautiful day for this outdoors wedding at Macal Golf Course! After the ceremony on the tea-off for hole one the bridal party took a great blue bus to Spring Grove because of a detour. After a quick water break they went on to Eitzen and the newly remodeled community center. Check out some of the images below.
