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!

A few weeks ago we had such amazing fall weather. My sister-in-law and her family invited me to come to their house to do family pictures. We went out in their beautiful burr oak woods…picked some flowers…climbed their tree fort…and ended up on the basketball court…um ripstick court…no…skateboard…you get the picture!

Standing still was not an option, but I still think we got some fun stuff! Thanks for letting me follow you with my camera! Enjoy!

Earlier this summer I did some photos for Lisa of her kids’ Converse. It turned out really fun and is now hanging in her entry way. I will get a shot of the actual work on her wall as well.

Thanks for giving me such a fun project Lisa!

Enjoy!

Not me…ha ha…I’m waaay too wimpy for that! Thursday was MEA and our kids didn’t have school. The weather was beautiful…low 50’s but sunny…and we wanted to spend one day on the river before putting the boat away for the winter. Something most people have already done, so we pretty much had the river to ourselves.

It also happened to be Nicholas’ birthday (nephew). His mom wanted to treat everyone with lunch right below their house, at Wildcat landing in Brownsville. My friend Heather and her three kids came along…pretty soon we were quite the crew. Nicholas’ dad, David, sister Jamie and her son Noah also joined in the fun. Nicholas’ sister-in-law, Rachel and her to boys; Christian and Roland came as well.

This family I married into are known for doing all kinds of wild things. Well, Thursday they decided that waterskiing would be fun. They are some brave souls. Nicholas went first. He would probably have gone a long ways, but realized he had forgotten a life jacket and turned around after a sweet but short trip. Sister Jamie is no wuss…and in jeans and a t-shirt!!!…jumped in the water. Not being outdone by these young kids, my husband had to have a run as well. These guys are a little crazy…which I guess makes some fun entertainment for the rest of us.

After our little skiing adventures, people had to get back to work. Some of us stayed on the river and toured up to La Crosse, WI. We docked at Riverside, right down town. First stop is ALWAYS to see Karen at Generous Earth Pottery. My husband took the kids up there earlier this summer and Karen was so sweet with the kids. They love stopping in to say Hi. She makes the most beautiful pottery with all kinds of colors. My favorites are the buttery yellow and ice green colors. I always hold my breath just a little when we’re in there. Karen has amazing pottery everywhere and I don’t want to have to buy broken stuff. We have to go by car some time soon, so we can do some shopping. A must see when you stop in La Crosse, it’s on Pearl Street.

Next stop is Pearl Ice Cream Parlor which is a really old ice cream parlor with the original interior, for the most part. They have lots of sizes for cones and more flavors than I can even remember.

What a beautiful ride!!! Here are some shots from the days events. Enjoy!

Noah, Mariah E, Jakob, Maria M, Dane, Grace, Stine, Heather, Nicholas & Matthew

The whole gang…

Don’t mess with this fierce football team!

Nicholas celebrating his birthday…on the river…literally!

The red building in the back is where Jamie and Nicholas grew up. Talk about a great location!

Jamie stepped it up a notch…wet suit…what for?

Great job Jamie!

Crazy man himself…Matthew.

Up one more notch…starting IN the river… Brrrrrrr!

Faster!

I wasn’t ready and missed it, but right after this shot Matthew went to the edge of the boat and did a backflip into the river. Wild!

What?! No one at the beach?!

Beautiful Karen!

Until next time…

I met Dustin when he was only five years old, when I lived with his family for a year. He was such a sweet little blondie back then. Dustin has always been a laid-back kind-of-guy…and was very patient during this engagement session.

Rachel…what can I say…such a beautiful and fun woman!

We drove down to Beaver State Park for the first part of our shoot. The leaves were almost all gone, but still…what a beautiful area! The temperature was wonderful and besides one other couple…we had the place all to ourselves.

Next we headed up to the heart of Caledonia, MN, did some shots by this huge water tower, found a tree with leaves and last but not least…a fun playground set. LOVE the kissing picture. Sweet…is the word!

Enjoy a few of my favorites!

I was so excited when Ashley called to ask if I would do her senior photos. She is such a sweetie and has this amazing light and happy attitude about everything.

We drove around town. The fact that the only place to change clothes was in or next to my van was no big deal. What a sport!

I think we got some really fun images of this super sweet young woman! Enjoy!

 

When I first noticed the 1960’s Airstream camper that was parked outside their house I thought…hm…what if we could use this for the photoshoot… I mentioned it to  Rachel…she was very enthusiastic…next thing you know it was moved to a very romantic spot out in the woods by David’s parents’ farm.

First of all we did some shots various places in Spring Grove. Isn’t the red truck just awesome?!

I love Rachel’s sense of style…old hats with feathers…jewelry…cute outfits. Love it! They are both so much fun! By the time we got to the camper the sun was really hanging low. They quickly set up a table with glasses, wine, cheese, bread…Wow! It really looked cool! They even climbed a tree!!!

Here are some of my favorites from that evening. Enjoy!

What a wonderful couple…what a sweet baby! I had the great pleasure of hanging out with Tyler and his mom and dad earlier this month. Actually, Tyler was sleeping when I got there, but when he did wake up…awe…nothing but smiles! We had a fun time doing a few shots at their house. It was such a nice day and luckily both Kristi and Nick were up for a walk downtown. La Crosse (WI) has some beautiful old buildings and Nick told me about this cool park by the river. Thanks for being so much fun guys!

Here are some of my favorite images from the day. Enjoy!

Love the Klimt! A gift from Nick to Kristi. How sweet!

This is what Tyler looked like just minutes after he woke up. Amazing!

We met at the beautiful Hok-Si-La city park north of Lake City MN. Besides a couple of dog walkers, we had the park to ourselves. Wow! What a fun day! Got to meet this fun bunch in beautiful fall weather. The sprinkles were just to the south of us. Perfect!

Check out Chloe’s blue eyes…they are some of the bluest eyes I have ever seen!

We found a bunch of different backgrounds. I was overjoyed when they agreed to pose in front of the bathrooms. Goodness do I have great clients. The doors are about as blue as Chloe’s eyes.

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Chloe just couldn’t resist…and neither could I. Perfect!

 

It’s been too long since my last post. I’ll try to catch up with a few in the next few days. This summer has been crazy!

Last week I went down to Beaver State Park with Libby, Gabe, Pauley and their mom. As always, I had such a fun time with those guys. Love to chat away with mom. They have grown sooo much since last year!

We had the most beautiful weather and the place pretty much all to ourselves. Some of the shots I took while standing in the creek. I guess I need new rain boots, because my one foot felt icy cold all of a sudden. The kids had big eyes, when I took the boot off and poured water out of it. Later I managed to dip my butt in the water as well. Mom laughed at me and wished she had a camera…funny! Good times!

While the kids were sitting by the river throwing rocks in the water, there was a quick wind gust…then we had a slow shower of golden leaves falling quietly all around us…like snow. It was truly a magical moment!

Here are a few shots of those beautiful kids! Enjoy!
