Eagan Minnesota Fall Family Photos: Jeff & Melanie

This gorgeous warm Minnesota fall, I met up with Jeff, Melanie, and their sweet little son – who was 7 months to the day on the date of our session!  Although we had been having wonderful weather, I awoke to the most dreary of mornings.  It was touch and go, but we made a game time decision – and thankfully we did.  Upon arrival at one of my favorite little photo spots in Eagan, the rain ceased.

I am so happy I was able to meet up with you both and congrats on your sweet little baby C 🙂

Dayton’s Bluff, St. Paul, Minnesota: Family Photo Session

In September, I connected with Leo, Ash, and their two little ones in a familiar place.  The first time we did family photos – a few years back – they suggested Dayton’s Bluff in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Dayton’s Bluff has this wonderful overlook for viewing downtown St. Paul and the Mississippi River.  Like last time, it was quite windy, but we made the best of it.  My favorite part of the session is when they pulled out some cartoon masks that Leonard had when he was a little boy.  Too funny to see them on the kiddos!

Take a peek!

Taylor’s Falls Minnesota: Spring Family Photos

Last weekend in Minnesota it was absolutely GORGEOUS.  After what felt like weeks of spring rains & 30 mile an hour winds, a lush Minnesota spring finally revealed herself.   The trees filled in practically overnight and the birds began whistling their springtime melodies.  It was the perfect weekend to hit the road and head to an iconic spot in Minnesota for some springtime family photos.

Nestled on the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin, with the beautiful St. Croix River rushing through, the small town of Taylor’s Falls can be found.  Interstate Park is also found here, it’s landscape abundant with deep glacial potholes and amazing rock formations, making it a climber’s haven.

I met up with my former boss and her family in this unique and majestic setting to take photos.

Thank you all for inviting me to do this for you.  I hope you enjoy them 🙂

Austin is just finishing up his senior year and heading to Georgia for bootcamp this summer!  Coming from a military family myself I have HUGE appreciation for the service he is dedicating to his country.  Thank you!

I love father-daughter photos!  They are some of my favorites to take.

Ashley and her fiancee Aaron got engaged last year.  It’s clear these two are head over heels for each other.

Shalene and Craig shared a funny first date story – which I’m not quite sure I can share here – but let’s just say it involves a canoe ;P
