Lisa told me she wanted some images of her family…hey…Blake…we missed you!!!…walking in a field. The day we had picked was hot, but also beautiful. I brought them to one of my in-laws’ fields. Two days later the hay was cut…great timing!

Kennedy kept us laughing with all her fun comments and looking totally in another direction. Thanks for walking with me and making it great!!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Late last fall this wonderful couple took me to the Science Building at Luther College for their engagement session. The building was just amazing! We had a fun time rearranging furniture and quietly walking through the library. Thanks for such a great place for your session!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

It was a blustery cool afternoon when we headed to Decorah (IA) to finally get the annual family photos done. There are so many cool backgrounds in that town and it makes it really fun to shoot. The only thing that was a little hard, was the fact that the wind was so cool that it was hard to get comfortable. The kids were troupers and we still got lots of fun shots. Thanks guys!

Grandma & Grandpa joined in for some of the shots. What sweet people! I see where Mom gets her good looks!

After the Christmas card was finished, Mom decided she wanted to do something different this year. Love the idea of a photo of the kids on an actual stamp!! GO MOM! Check out the very first image. Cool idea!

I have so many favorites…and here are some of them. Enjoy!

Maria got word that Gap was having a Casting Call for kids. It didn’t take her long to find some jeans and create a cute outfit.

Every day  we have voted for her. Even little brother is excited about this and keeps asking how many votes she has.

I have explained to Maria that there are many many girls that are dreaming of this, like her. I do know she would make an excellent model though. She has always loved modeling for me. Her face is just beautiful!

Here is the photo she wanted to enter. Good Luck Baby!

Last weekend these sweet girls came out to my house and we did a bunch of fun shots. The weather was awesome…with a small exception of all the bugs that came out as we went down in the valley.

The girls had lots of different outfits and we had a great time. I think these turned out really cool!

Check out some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Here are some ideas that I have been working on for Lucas.

So many cool images to pick from makes for many ideas when it comes to cards.

It’s all about having fun with it!

Just the other day I had the pleasure of walking around town with Kaley and her mother Kay. I couldn’t stop saying ooh and aah…it was so much fun! We were shooting senior pictures, but I was thinking Vogue…ha…ha… Kaley has the most beautiful face and the sweetest personality. Her blue eyes were just radiant! Love the fact that she had on her mothers boots…just as stylish today as when they were worn last. Stylish, because Kaley is good at putting together the right outfits…simple and classy or layered up and sassy. Love it!

We walked around and found one fun place after another. For such a small town, there are an amazing amount of “backdrops” you would never be able to buy.

Kaley knew without hesitating what she wanted to wear and at the very end even put on her leotard…the girl is a gymnast…and a graceful one at that, from what I can see.

What a treat for me to get to capture some moments of this wonderful young woman! Enjoy!

Still at the classy and elegant Grand Hotel Minneapolis in downtown Minneapolis to do some Boudoir shots. Thanks to Chris Meyer for organizing the shoot. Other photographers were: Tamrah Ryan, Sara Weitzel, Tom Ward and Nick & Hillary.

A fun way to document how great you looked when you were young!

Here are some of my favorite shots of Lindsay. Enjoy!

Yes! I know…sometimes it takes me a while to get through stuff. My family is usually the ones that have to wait. I’m trying to get ALL my photos processed. That means going through every file and doing something with them. Here are some shots from last year!!! Ezra turned 1 last February and I’m just getting to it now. There are a few cute shots of some of the boys running around in their underwear that I wish I could post, but have decided not to.  Here is a couple of shots of the birthday boy and his cousins playing pirates. Cute! First a few shots of baby Auryn.

Sweet Auryn and Jessica.

ezrabday2008-40

So kissable!!!

ezrabday2008-44

Look! There’s Daddy.

ezrabday2008-69

Grandma’s girl.

ezrabday2008-48

Gotta love the cake in the refrigerator…right next to the bottle. 

ezrabday2008-57

The birthday boy himself. Happy Birthday Ezra! HURRA!!!

ezrabday2008-70

All partied out…

ezrabday2008-72

Jakob…trying to show me his pirate face.

ezrabday2008-75

Cousin Nick is also a great pirate!

ezrabday2008-81

Isaac staring me down with his good eye.  : )

ezrabday2008-99

Noah the pirate. The eye patch is cool, but a little tricky.

ezrabday2008-84

A bunch of pirates…up to no good…with their treasure map. Watch out!!!

ezrabday2008-871

Clue number one takes the pirates to the basement. They are just too cute!

ezrabday2008-88

They found the hidden treasure chest. 

ezrabday2008-89

Now lets see if they can share or if it will be every kid for himself.

ezrabday2008-91

So far so good…

ezrabday2008-953

Jakob with his share of the treasure.

ezrabday2008-97

Noah has his part. Check out the ring on his finger. My kids were wearing the rings for days afterwards. Thanks for a great party guys!

Finally!!! Every year, the same thing…our Christmas card is always the last to get done, and always a last minute thing. Earlier this fall, before the school pictures, I was ready…but the kids were just not in the mood for pictures…and here we are, it’s almost Christmas.

Then, yesterday I lucked out! I spent about one minute on each of the girls and Jakob sat for about two minutes. Of course B-Cat had to be included, but anything to get the kid to sit still, right?!!! I got lucky. He even wore his pink party shirt. His cousin, Theodor, in Norway has one just like it. He’s not quite sure about the pink, but I keep telling him that with the BIG numbers on the back it is the coolest shirt. 

Here are some of the shots I got and I will post our Christmas card soon. I would have loved to do a group shot of the three, but it just wasn’t going to happen. These pictures will also be used as their school photos for trading. The generic Herff stuff doesn’t do anything for me.

A sweet moment of my little “baby”. With best buddy, B-Cat.

B-Cat even got a kiss. How cute!

My precious Maria.

Yes! There was a cat involved here as well. Max. Somehow he didn’t get included in any of the shots.

Having new BIG teeth is always funny. And scratches in her face from the day before.

img_0572

No cat. Miss Ada was outside.

Stine is absolutely growing into her BIG front teeth…and growing up waaaay too fast! I think she will be an actress or a singer some day. She is so talented!
