Daddy and Daughter lifestyle session in Bryn Mawr, MN

Today I had a lifestyle session for a daddy and his daughter.  What is a lifestyle session, you say?  That is a good question!  I feel like the term is thrown around a lot without very many people who aren’t photographers really understanding what it means.  Basically, I come to your house/neighborhood park/favorite coffee shop/wherever and document your life for a few hours.  We play, we eat, we just be.  There won’t be a family portrait.  There won’t be posed siblings.  It would look like this…

 or this…

I love the idea & end result of this session! Such gorgeous images!

Couples/Sisters session in Loring Park, MN

A few weeks ago I had a really fun couples session.   Like, serious fun.  As in, you-call-this-work? kind of fun.  I met up with two sisters and their significant others and it was on!  Being part of a sisterhood myself I really enjoy capturing that bond.  When you have a sister you know you have someone to count on for life.  Through all the ups and downs.  The breakups and make ups.  The “I shouldn’t have done that” to the “I told you so’s.”  They can drive us crazy (hear that l’il sis?) But we love them.  No matter what.

Family and Pet Session in Stillwater

I always love it when families want to include their pets in the family portrait.  What’s that saying about never working with kids or animals?  It sure doesn’t seem to apply to me…

Family Pet Dog Fall Session Minneapolis Minnesota Fun Modern Fresh Candid

I love the Stillwater, Mn area…especially in Fall!  The surrounding bluffs are so pretty when the leaves are turning and being by the river provides some great scenery!  It was so fun photographing the Zaremba family…So fun, in fact I will be coming back to take their Holiday photos.  I spotted the perfect evergreen tree in their yard to photograph while they are stringing lights on it.  Now, all we need to do is hope for some snow!  But not too soon…we still need to go trick or treating!

JaneNovember 7, 2012 - 1:22 am

Well, looks to me like the dog and kids cooperated fully! Beautiful images of a lovely family.

Fall session in Linden Hills

The Brundieck family and I headed out to the Linden Hills area for a fun Saturday photo session.  There was a chill in the air but everyone was a trooper!  It is so fun for me to shoot brothers, especially ones as silly as these boys.  Having two boys of my own, I know how difficult it is to capture any images of them being affectionate.  Children are usually much calmer for strangers so I always try to get at least one pose of boys hugging each other, before it dissolves into cage match style wrestling!

Linden Hills Minneapolis Minnesota Fall Family Fun Brothers Silly

 

I have always loved the Linden Hills area for the unique shops and restaurants you can find.  As a small business owner myself, I am always conscious of supporting other local businesses.  The image of the family taken under that super cute banner is in front of an equally super cute store, the Linden Tree.  When I walked in, I couldn’t help but feel energized.  The store is full of bright and colorful fabrics, as well as handcrafted gifts and locally made goods.  I highly suggest you check them out!

SusyOctober 16, 2012 - 8:07 pm

Beautiful family! Great job!
