These images are from Christmas. The next step took a while… so long that in fact… a Valentine’s Day card was created. Who cares!

The kids did such a good job. They posed so sweetly for me.

We also attempted to get a shot with their two dogs…maybe next year…ha ha ha…

So…a little late, but Happy Valentine’s Everyone!!!

I am very excited to announce that I now have some more fun products to choose from. A lot of you will recognize the Small Messenger Bag with the image of my kids. TOTALLY LOVE – LOVE – LOVE this one! It fits my checkbook, my purse, a pen, lipstick, chapstick and some gum easy…without looking bulky. I can also slip my cell phone in the open back pocket and have my hands free. It just rocks!

These are great as gifts…or just fun for yourself.

Outside it is a very typical early spring day…pouring rain, thunder and lighting. Then there is the cheer-you-up ANYTIME plant in our kitchen. I totally LOVE orchids and their beautiful design.

Let’s not forget the hot pink one’s that have been blooming for me since…hm…a very long time now. Just when the blooms would fall off…another shoot would start and pretty soon…more beautifulness in the kitchen.

Here is a shot to brighten your day! 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!

Friday morning looked gloomy and grey. I checked the weather forecase, which predicted more clouds and possibly rain. Oh well, I thought…you take what you get and make the best of it. Right before I left my one daughter looked at me and stated that the weather was going to be sunny and super ALL DAY. Thanks sweetie, I told her, thinking what a positive mind she had. As I drove to the Winnebago Valley Park, where the shoot would be, I could see blue skies to the north and…was I just imagining this or were the clouds going away…? By the time I got to the park the clouds were almost gone. Amazing!!!

I met Natasha last year when she and her mother came to visit me and see me and my work. Now I got to meet Joey. I think Joey smiled and made jokes the whole time. What a fun couple! What a treat! Later this summer I get to shoot their wedding as well. I’m very excited!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

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.

Wildcat Landing, Brownsville MN – June 3rd
The day started out cold and rainy and I thought I would have to re-schedule my engagement session with Amy and Eric. The rain stopped, it was a bit breezy, but not cold. Amy and Eric were game and so we headed down to Wildcat landing in Brownsville, a place they often spend their time together. The nice thing about the cool weather was that it was practically empty. Here are some favorites. Enjoy!


 

Katrina & Luke had just seen each other for the first time on their wedding day. It was like time stood still. They were just in awe of each other and you could practically feel the love. It was one of my favorite moments and I feel honored to have been a part of it.
