Sara & David | Minneapolis St Paul Engagement Photographer

First things first–

Sara & David are not engagned….yet. 🙂

Sara is my niece and she and David were kind enough to allow me to photograph them & build my portfolio.  They are such a great couple….so relaxed and at ease with each other.  They seem to fit together perfectly:  no pretenses, no pretending, no point to prove.

Can I tell you how much I love them and the fact that they were up for anything?  They let me play & experiment with some ideas I had.  They traipsed through the tall grass, climbed hills, sat in the dirt, dodged other people and went along with all of my random, disjointed, crazy & sometimes ADD-ridden thoughts without ever questioning it.  They chased the light with me, even if they didn’t know that’s what we were doing. 🙂

I cannot even express my love of this one….it makes my heart sing!

Hello, beautiful!

A couple just for fun….

And this one…..oh how I love this one.  I feel like I snuck in and caught a perfect moment in time.

Thank you so much, Sara & David, for a great night!!

Sneak Peek! The G Family

I first met the G family in March when I had the privilege of doing Baby Z’s newborn portraits.  When they contacted me to do family portraits I jumped at the opportunity!  I feel a real connection with this family.  They remind me so much of my own family a decade ago.

I went into this session feeling so inspired.  We had a fabulous location & I had grand ideas for poses & props.  I was quickly reminded, however, who was really in charge….and that was little Miss K.  This little girl stole a piece of my heart the first time I met her but she may very well have taken the rest of it with her during this session.  She’s a spitfire, this one.  She is charming, precocious, uncompromising and sweet all at once.  I would {love} to meet her again in 20 years because I think that she is well on her way to becoming an absolutely amazing woman!

And of course there is Mr. Z….such a laid back, sweet little guy who is willing to go along with whatever is thrown his way.  He was such a trooper on that crisp November morning.  We didn’t hear a peep from him !

This is my  favorite family portrait to date.  I absolutely love the emotion it captures!  It is such a real  moment and one I hope they will remember for years to come.

Thank you, thank you, thank you G family for allowing me to be a part of your lives!
