Ailee // Newborn Photography

This post is late, since little Ailee is almost 4 months old now, but the images were too cute to not share. If her eyes are closed in any of the photos, they are deceiving, this little beauty did not sleep more than a wink during the entire session, but she wasn’t fussy either, so it turned out well. I will post her 3 month photos soon, so stay tuned!

Adam & Audra // Wedding Photography

Last August I photographed this awesome couple’s engagement which included some epic tandem slalom water skiing. If you missed it, check it out here. Adam and Audra’s plan was to do a little snow skiing on their wedding day, but who knew that in February in Minnesota there would be no snow? Crazy. Even without skiing their wedding day was phenomenal. We started photographing before the sun rose early in the morning at the Hilton Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis followed by the absolutely gorgeous Hennepin Ave United Methodist Church for their ceremony at 10:30am. A brunch reception was held at Como Zoo which was full of fun activities for kids including coloring books, animal masks and a live penguin from the zoo. Audra and Adam had many great and personal details throughout the day but my favorite by far was their cake table (and not for the reason that it featured some of my images from their engagement session). Their cake was custom made by Audra’s sister and made for a great set up for a few of their ring shots. Audra and Adam I wish you many years of grand adventures together. Congratulations.

Tony + Hannah // Wedding Photography

We started the 2015 wedding season off early with an amazing couple – Tony and Hannah. They are full of life, lots of laughter and love. Hannah is the younger sister of Rachel whom we photographed getting married to Tyler back in 2013 (you can view their wedding here.) It was so much fun working with their family again and meeting Tony’s family and friends. Though we were at the same locations we were for Rachel and Tyler’s wedding, we were able to capture images that really reflect Hannah and Tony’s personality and relationship. Finding something new and beautiful in a familiar scene is one of the things I love about being a photographer. It challenges you to see things in a way you haven’t thought to look for before.

Tony and Hannah, thank you so much for letting us be apart of your wedding day. May your love for life and each other bring you joy and happiness in all your days.

Kaiser Family

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’d like you to meet the Kaiser family, my aunt, uncle and cousin. If you know me or my mom, you’ll see the resemblance to Marianne in these pictures. Over Thanksgiving we traveled to Illinois to visit them and my grandma, so we did a little family session one morning. This is also the first shoot I used my new photo baby – the Nikon D810. I’m really happy with the camera, and how these images turned out. Enjoy!

Austad Family // Hudson WI Maternity Photographer

This beautiful family is growing!! Today is actually the due date, but their beautiful, healthy, baby girl decided to come a few days early. I figured I should probably blog their maternity session before the newborn portraits, which I am so excited to be photographing next week! Jeri is beautiful everyday, but I told her she should have lots of kids, because pregnancy looks so good on her, she just glows, and if Jude is any indication, she has really cute kids. She told me that would not be happening, but I still think she should. I cannot wait to meet the fourth member of their family soon. Stay tuned for the newborn pictures. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Belisle Family Portraits // Hudson WI Family Photography

A little over a month ago I met the Belisle family at Willow River State Park and had the perfect fall afternoon with beautiful fall colors. We did a mix of family photos and first birthday pictures. What an adorable family and can the little guy get any more cute?! Seriously? My word. Makes your heart melt. Thanks for letting me capture this milestone in your family, I had a blast working with the three of you!

Mitchell // Senior Portraits

A couple weeks ago, I drive to my aunt and uncles house to photograph my cousin, Mitchell, for some slightly belated senior portraits since he has already graduated high school. Mitchell is a gifted guitar player, and has a fantastic laugh and smile, and though he won’t admit it, he enjoys being in front of a camera. It was a fun session to say the least!

Thomas // Stillwater MN Senior Portraits

Thomas took a chance with me, and I think it paid off well. Thomas said he was looking for a location that was outdoorsy and by some water. My first instinct here in Hudson is the obvious- Lakefront Park. but I wanted to try something new; to go somewhere I have not photographed before.  I suggested doing his senior portraits at the Boom Site in Stillwater, MN. I had only heard of this location from a friend a while back. Thomas was up for the adventure, so I met him and his mom there. We were all pleasantly surprised. We met on a day that had been raining all morning, but cleared just in time for the session. It was awesome! Thomas is a senior in Woodbury, and is looking to go into computer science and/or music. He is one talented kid, and of the nicest kind. Have a great senior year and best wishes in all you do Thomas!

Lucas & Sarah // Hudson, WI Wedding Photography

Lucas and Sarah tied the knot in one of my favorite places in Hudson – Prospect Park. They planned a simple and beautiful ceremony overlooking the St. Croix River. Some of the trees had already started to change colors which made for the perfect backdrop against the black and white wedding party attire. Sarah was an absolutely stunning bride and the way she looks at Lucas reflects the love they share. Congratulations Lucas and Sarah. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to photograph your wedding ceremony!

Grace // Woodbury MN Senior Photographer

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’d like you to meet Grace. She is the younger sister of Emily, and a beautiful individual. We had the perfect summer day at Minnehaha Falls for her senior session. I am thrilled with how her images turned out. Grace picked the perfect outfits that really show her personality and worked great with the variety of backgrounds available at Minnehaha Falls. Grace I hope you have a memorable senior year and best of luck to you in your future.
