Actually it's less than a week until Christmas! I can't believe it. I'm more shocked that I'll turn 28 next week. What!? I am TWO years away from 30. I still feel 19 half the time :) It's been a... Continue reading

What a wonderful, fun, festive time you had! I love watching your friendship with these women. What a blessing you all must be to one another :) I'll have to download that book to my kindle, it sounds great! And I love that you found two Santas... tight grip and all!

Today when I woke up I realized that Christmas is a little over two weeks away. Ouf! This year has flown by for me, and in many ways I am grateful for that. 2014 was a tough one. But, it... Continue reading

Many moons ago... well, nearly six years to be precise, I photographed Jenny's wedding! So, I was delighted when she contacted me a few weeks back to capture her twins. It was so wonderful to see her again and meet... Continue reading

Truth be told I rarely do newborn sessions outside of the hospital... but lately I've been doing a few more. One I shot in a family's home (always fun) and the other at the First Day Photo studio. I love... Continue reading

With record cold and a heavy snowstorm winter has arrived... It sort of feels like a slap in the face after the positively lovely, colorful, and memorable fall we had. But, I've accepted that the next 6 months will look... Continue reading

Kristen! You're the winner ;) Do you mind e-mailing me your address and I'll have both cards sent out to you?!

I love that idea! Big part of what I usually just do cards and then a few gifts for my parents. Keep it simple!

You are welcome. I need it as much as the next person. It's so easy to get caught up in all the glitz and glitter... which is fun, but not the focus? You know? Just can't stress myself out too much over things that ultimately aren't that critical.

Overnight we’ve transitioned from fall to winter. I was sad to see fall go, it’s always the season I look forward to the most. Since our first snowfall and the first of the month, Minneapolis has evolved from golden, brown,... Continue reading

I love when other people share systems that work for them, and so today I'm going to blog a bit about my work bag and how it's the very best camera carrying system I've encountered yet. My search for the... Continue reading

Adorable! I love that your wore your mom's dress (again!). I think the 70s were a great era for prom dresses and wedding gowns... love those long sleeves and empire waists :) How nice that Scott dresses up, too. Glad you all had a wonderful, festive Halloween.

Oh! That ice cream dessert looks positively heavenly. How fun for you two to enjoy that in bed with a movie. Excited to see the album, and GOOD ON YOU for keeping at it for a whole week.

Okay, so looking through this post (and all the others for PL!) I keep seeing how expressive your cute kiddos are. I say a future in theater is at least for one of them. Good on you for not sweeping. We actually have giant street sweepers come in (they did it block by block last week) and remove ALL the leaves. There are so many that if they don't it creates problems once it snows and freezes.

You look so pretty, Shannon! Tell Anna she's only better off for "mom homework." My mom had me do the same with words that I couldn't get and I ended up participating in a spelling bee in middle school :) Def. hoping your neighbors don't turn on you! Who could resist that little break in!?

I love the perspective of your first shot... so cool. Anna is a riot! How sweet of you to do the party in her class AND take photos. Okay... so do ya'll not eat real butter?!

Anna's art piece is darling... I love that quote and have it framed in my bathroom :) Great reminder! Conner is looking so grown up! Going to dances in middle/high school are some of my best memories. Getting dressed up, getting asked, a fancy dinner out... Conner is in for some wonderful memories!
