hanging out at home

Love these two sweet girls, full of energy, smiles, and spunk. I photographed Elizabeth when she had just turned one - check out her sweet session here. Last weekend, we hung out at their home, where the girls bounced on the bed, listened to music on dad's iphone, and snuggled together on the couch. We wanted to capture little Kate in her traditional Korean hambok as well, which is worn to celebrate a baby's first birthday. She wasn't so sure about losing her mobility with the long skirt, but we were able to get a few shots outside in the gorgeous light before she gave up in favor of cuddles with mama. I love her tentative stance in that last photo - so precious. mendota heights baby photographer

How stinkin' cute is her little wrinkled nose?

We didn't let the first blizzard of the season stop us from having a lovely time together! I adore these three little girls - each so different, and all absolutely beautiful. Thanks for coming out to spend the afternoon with me - your gallery is on its way! child photography st paul

skipping stones :: minneapolis family photographer

This evening was spent with a lovely, happy family - skipping stones, hula hooping, and playing on the beach. This was an especially perfect spot for their session because this was where mom and dad had their first date, years ago. Beautiful. I have a feeling that this is going to be a new favorite location of mine! It is so very Minnesota, with the river, the old gnarley trees, the beautiful grasses, the beach...

Thanks so much for coming out and spending the evening with me! Hope you had some good ice cream after your session!
